Free Your Grind (and the rest will follow)

CLOUD RAT are a female-fronted three-piece from Michigan, and holy shit they're good.  Surprisingly nuanced considering they only have one guitarist and no bassist, they make me think of a mix between the Sutek Conspiracy and Pig Destroyer.  They're committed to the DIY ethos to the point where they've made all their releases free via Grindcore Karaoke, the site run by Agoraphobic Nosebleed's J. Randall (basically Bandcamp for grind; I love me some grind, and I definitely love me some Bandcamp).  Take that, Adam Smith.

Their first self-titled LP is available here.
Their second album, Fever Dreams, is available here.

Upcoming tours, releases, and other information can be found at their very entertaining blog.
