Craneón Short Info

ENGLISH:
CRANEÓN is a hard rock band from Madrid, Spain, composed by guitarist-vocalist Juanjo de Latorre, drummer José Luis Serzo and bassist Javier Schoendorff.

The band draws inspiration from a wide range of influences, from 70's heavy rock, to 90's stoner, sludge and alternative rock or progressive and space rock, always keeping an open mind and a disregard for rules.

Formed in 2006, the band started blending heavy duty riffing, dense atmospheres and ethereal ambiences, progressive dynamics, sick grooves, soulful vocals and evoking spanish lyrics. The band went through numerous lineup changes and toured the country several times.

In 2012 CRANEÓN released their EP, “Avanza” (spanish for “Move forward”) in 2012. Though this long-distance race, they shared the stage with many international bands as the legendary Karma to Burn (USA), Pendejo (Holland), Deville (Sweden), Been Obscene (Austria) or Taura (Argentina), took part in several festivals and even created their own: “Riffolución: Festival de Hard Rock Iberoamericano".

CRANEÓN now presents their debut LP “Hacia el Sol” (spanish for “Towards the Sun”; 2014), produced by Christophe R. Moure, Manuel Cabezalí (guitarist,vocalist and producer in the renowned spanish band Havalina) and the band. The album was released on April 29 2014 through the independent label Anomia Musica and features an amazing guest appearance by El Pastuso, lead singer of the dutch band Pendejo on vocals and trumpet, and the hypnotic artwork of the incredible artist Santiago Talavera, the perfect visual partner for a sonic trip to the stars, from among the moss, through the mist, amid the desert rocks until you float in space.

Mondosonoro magazine offered an exclusive pre-release stream on their site and later gave the band a special mention on their best metal albums of 2014. “Hacia el Sol” was chosen as one of the best records of the year by music sites as LaHabitación235, Subnoise, HRB, RedHardNHeavy and Distrito Uve.

Craneón will close the year 2015 with a France Tour alongside the band Soundcrawler.

ESPAÑOL:
CRANEÓN es una banda de rock madrileña formada por Juanjo de Latorre (guitarra y voz), Javier Schoendorff (bajo) y José Luis Serzo (batería).

Fundado en 2006, el grupo reúne un amplio rango de estilos e influencias, desde el heavy rock de los 70, el stoner y el sludge hasta el progresivo, la psicodelia o el rock alternativo de los 90, mostrando una absoluta indiferencia hacia las reglas de estilo.

La banda pasa por diversos cambios en sus filas y realiza giras por la península, editando en 2012 el EP "AVANZA". En su entusiasta carrera de fondo, han compartido escenario con bandas como los legendarios Karma To Burn (USA), Pendejo (Holanda), Deville (Suecia), Taura (Argentina) o los locales Fuzz, participado en diversos festivales e incluso puesto en marcha el suyo propio: "Riffolución: Festival de Hard Rock Iberoamericano".

CRANEÓN presenta ahora su primer LP, "HACIA EL SOL" (2014, Anomia Música), producido por Christophe R. Moure, Manuel Cabezalí (Havalina) y la propia banda, con la increíble colaboración de El Pastuso (Pendejo). Todo ello envuelto en un evocador diseño a cargo del reconocido artista Santiago Talavera, que acompaña a la perfección a doce pistas de viaje mirando a los astros, desde el musgo, a través de la niebla, entre las rocas y el polvo del desierto, hasta flotar en el espacio.

La revista Mondo Sonoro preestrenó de manera exclusiva el álbum en su web una semana antes del lanzamiento y le otorgó una mención especial en los mejores discos de metal del 2014. Webs como Subnoise, Hereunidoalabanda, Distrito Uve, RedHardNHeavy o LaHabitación235 lo incluyeron en sus listas de los mejores álbumes del 2014.

Craneón cerrará el 2015 con una gira por Francia junto a Soundcrawler.
