While I'd say fans of metallic hardcore, older black metal, and d-beat will undoubtedly find something to like here, the only band that comes to mind for a solid comparison (to me) is Gehenna. I don't necessarily think these two bands sound alike, but I think fans of Gehenna will definitely like this band. Maybe it's the vocals? Who knows. Listen for yourself HERE
Like Rats is more than just a 'side project' of a bigger band. Weekend Nachos is one of my favorite current bands, but if they broke up I wouldn't be totally devastated because I'd still have Like Rats.
This comes on oxblood colored vinyl.
There are still copies available at A389. Do not sleep on this band.
