Cloud Rat, the Michigan masters of proggy grind, have released a single and video for the track “‘Kaleidoscope.” This ear-crushing track is from their forthcoming record Threshold set for release October 7 via Artoffact Records.
Drummer Brandon Hill previously commented:
“We debated naming the album after that song, as the idea and visuals of a kaleidoscope were very much something we thought about and felt with the sheer amount of ideas and textures and changes in the album… I think the name and vibe of the track perfectly encompass what the record is all about. There’s moments of near-prog, synth-laden, odd-rhythm drumming and riffage in the beginning, some rather heart-wrenching passages and riffs, coupled with lots of (even to me) unexpected twists and turns, and perhaps some of the most difficult patterns I can recall playing, approaching the end of the song.”
Cloud Rat have more than 20 releases in their discography including albums, EPs, splits, and seven-inches, since 2010.
