GRINDCORE. CLOUD RAT's most intense and blistering recordings to date. CLOUD RAT have taken grind to the next level on "pollinator", and it's vicious. CLOUD RAT is one of those rare bands whose music connects instantly, painfully - you feel the words, the the riffs, and the all-consuming cacophony deep within the marrow of your bones, vibrating out into a hostile world.

GRINDCORE/SCREAMO-HARDCORE. CLOUD RAT's 3rd full-length is another absolute masterpiece of venomous grinding hardcore fury. This MI based trio has toured relentlessly and has never failed to keep their sound fresh and interesting, despite being super prolific. This record adds the noise skills of Brandon Hill to great effect, just upping the ante. Madison's vocals again spew hideous poisons unknown since ancient ages, and Adrian has managed to hit the drums harder in an absolutely punishing performance. Rorik drops riff after riff, taking it from grinding intensity to chugging crunch. Seriously, just get this.

GRINDCORE/SCREAMO-HARDCORE. Colored (green) vinyl re-press of the 1st CLOUD RAT full-length album, originally released in 2010. Heavy, blasting hardcore played mostly at a grinding pace, only slowing down to bludgeon you with crushing riffs. This record has an emotional honesty and intensity that is often lacking in bands this heavy, as the pained lyrics are spat out like so much venom. The packaging is made out of re-used record covers, screenprinted then re-glued, with a lyrics insert, all with original art from the band and friends.
