Description via Halo of Flies:

"Michigan grindcore punks Cloud Rat are ready to exorcise the wickedest of demons with their newest album, Moksha, to be released by Halo of Flies Records on January 22, 2013. Ferocious and unrelenting, Moksha is a record infused with doses of melody and bludgeoning heaviness, tortured vocals and lyrics that dig up harsh memories. Still, through the jaws of darkness, Cloud Rat manages to salvage an ounce of hope within it all.

The members of Cloud Rat had been cutting their teeth in Mount Pleasant for less than a year when they released their self-titled debut in 2010. While relatively new to the international metal scene, Cloud Rat has been quickly and loudly making its presence known. A widely-praised 2012 split with Republic of Dreams has only increased the band's momentum.The fierce radical idealogies present in its music create an aural onslaught with substance instead of a political statement.

"We aren't afraid to experiment with new sounds and ideas, but not so much that we lose sight of what we are predominantly: punks playing really fast."

5th pressing, purple vinyl.
