Faint-Hearted - Cloud Rat

I hate love. I despise it actually.

When I wanted it, it would leave me.

I can’t stand it, it haunts me.

Oh they all haunted me. They all haunted me.

What a warped sense of mind,

to tell me everything’s fine.

A little at a time.

It’s the thing that just beats me,

it beats me every time.

Cloud Rat - Split 7" w/ Crevasse [2017]

Grindcore & Power Violence Week

Cloud Rat are a fantastic three-piece grind act based out of Michigan. The trio blend conventions of screamo, hardcore and punk into their special brand of grindcore. But what makes Cloud Rat stand out from an abundance of modern grind bands the most is their use of melody. It gives their music an emotional edge that is lacking in so many other grind albums. When your band is set on raging against all forms of oppression, as Cloud Rat proudly declare, it helps to have some genuine feeling in your music that goes beyond “this sounds really heavy.”
