cloud rat / the world is a vampire - split 12"
New Orleans' The World is a Vampire delivers a serving of unsettled noisy goth punk. Add doses of 90's grunge and goth influence but create something truly nightmarish with it as they layer on bouts of vicious hardcore and moments of complete dementia. The sound is blown up as if played through ...

cloud rat / moloch - split 12"
Witness the blessed union of Cloud Rat - the genre-bending, grind-doom-noise-punk-metal phenoms - and the UK's Moloch, who continue to be truly excellent purveyors of tense, rancid sludge forged in the grand Northern English tradition.

Cloud Rat is an American grindcore punk band. Adrian, Madison, and Rorik formed the band on a whim in December 2009, at a punk house in a small college town known as Mount Pleasant, Michigan. The initial idea was to create the filthiest, most emotionally-charged grindcore possible. But after a few practices, their other influences started creeping in, and they knew that there would be more to this band than just a few blastbeats and shouted vocals. Musically, they are influenced by all the punk and metal greats, as well as grunge, goth/new wave, hip-hop, rock and roll, jazz, shoegaze, on and on and on. Lyrically, the songs shift between personal and sociopolitical topics (often painful and explicit dealing with issues of drugs, neglect, emotional/physical/sexual violence, abandonment, poverty, racism/sexism/homophobia, etc), usually delivered poetically rather than straightforward. They firmly believe in a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, radical feminism, and positive social change through tolerance, respect, awareness, and compassion. They have released a self-titled LP (2010), split cassette/LP with Xtra Vomit (2010/2012 respectively), split 7" with Autarkeia (2011), split LP with Republic of Dreams(2012), and are soon to release a full length LP entitled "Moksha" and a split 7" with Orgullo Primitivo, both in 2013. Cloud Rat has toured the USA multiple times, and are hitting Canada and Europe over the next few months (Winter/Spring 2012/2013).
