Holy shit!  This 7" absolutely slay's.  Contraszt! and Halo Of Flies records has teamed up to release this magnificant beast of a seven inch featuring new material from Michigan's Cloud Rat and Dutch/German powerhouse Crevasse.  Cloud Rat are a four piece band from Mount Pleasant, Michigan who formed in December of 2009.  I've been a huge fan of Cloud Rat since hearing their self-titled LP back in 2010.  Cloud Rat has continued to grow and expand upon their sound, creating a truly unique take on modern hardcore, punk, and grindcore.  Since their inception in 2009, Cloud Rat have released an eleven track self-titled LP on IFB records in 2010, a split cassette with Xtra Vomit in 2010, a split 7" with Autarkeia in 2011, a 3-way split LP with Oily Menace and Wolbachia in 2011, a thirteen track LP titled Moksha on Halo Of Flies, IFB, React With Protest, 7 Degrees, and React With Protest in January of 2013, a split LP with Republic Of Dreams in 2012, s song for the Monomaniac Volume One 7" compilation in 2012, a song for the No Compromise (Earth First) compilation in 2013, and a split 7" with Orgullo Primitivo in 2014, a 17 track album titled Qliphoth in 2015, and a split 7" with Drugs Of Faith in 2015.  On their side of the split Cloud Rat offer up three tracks of unrelentingly brutal hardcore, punk, crust, and grindcore.  Next up on the split is Crevasse.  Crevasse is a four piece band from Koln, Germany who formed in 2014.  Crevasse features members of Finisterre, Landverraad, Leechfeast and Lawine.  Crevasse play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of hardcore, punk, crust, and powerviolence within their sound.  As far as descriptions go, think bands like Masakari or Heartless mixed with Catharsis and a touch of Punch.  Since their inception in 2014, Crevasse have released a self-titled six song EP in August of 2014 and a self-titled 12" in March of 2016.  On their side of the split, Crevasse offer up three tracks of brutal as fuck sounding hardcore, punk, crust and grindcore.  Overall, this is an amazing split and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  Look for the split to be released via Halo Of Flies and Contraszt! Records on April 20th, 2017!
