CLOUD RAT/ DISROTTED split LP (halo of flies records)

In what is likely to be this year’s heaviest split release, the midwest alliance of Michigan grind trio Cloud Rat and Chicago droning death/doom metal trio Disrotted finds solid footing in the subterranean, all-surrounding pressure of crushing, sludgy doom. Though Disrotted’s explosive – I’ve been known to refer to their music as “explosion metal” – split closer “Dissipate” more closely resembles their signature band of Corrupted-inspired, hyper-minimalist low-frequency worship, Cloud Rat’s lengthy opening statement “Holding the Picture” shows a new face to this already multi-faceted band. “Playing the long-game,” Cloud Rat makes the jump and matches Disrotted’s sub-funereal pace for a blackened eighteen-minute dirge.
