Event description
Gadget and Cloud Rat perform a night of grindcore and extreme metal

About this Event

Though the band has generally flown under the radar in the general metal consciousness, Gavle, Sweden’s GADGET has roots that trace back to 1997. The band have always included influences from every other extreme genre that they’ve been fond of, like doom, sludge, hardcore punk, death metal, black metal and more, never letting genre boundaries stand in the way of their path of destruction. At the time of the band’s formation, GADGET existed as the grinding alter-ego of a metalcore band whose members, including GADGET founder William Blackmon, simply switched instruments. Rikard Olsson and William teamed up in the winter of 99/00, and wrote the first GADGET demo as a duo. The band then joined forces with Emil Englund to record a second demo, which was strong enough to grab the attention of Relapse Records, who signed the band for the release of their debut full-length Remote (2004), now featuring Fredrik Nygren. Remote was extensively well-received, as was its 2006 follow-up The Funeral March. After touring Europe twice and performing at dozens of festivals worldwide, including at Maryland Deathfest and Auditory Assault in the US, GADGET have proven themselves to be a relentless grindcore force live as well as on record.

CLOUD RAT

"We are a grindcore punk trio from Michigan called Cloud Rat. We formed in December 2009 in Mount Pleasant, MI. So far, we have extensively toured the USA, Canada, and Europe multiple times. We have released three full length LPs, five split LPs, four split 7"s, a split cassette tape, a 2010-2015 complete discography 2xCD, as well as having appeared on multiple compilations of various formats. We strongly believe in a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, animal/human/earth liberation, DIY/DIT, anti-capitalist ideologies, and living respectfully and compassionately.

Musically, we are influenced by all sorts of stuff. Pretty much any kind of music you can think of has found its way into our sound, through a blender set to "grind." Heh.

We've been through a lot of challenging stuff together, and it seems like this band is always on some sort of fucked up collision course with disaster. We've made it this long though, why stop? So many people have helped us along the way that this band can't necessarily be called our own anymore. Thank you to everyone who has shared in this project with us.

In the future, we plan to tour through Mexico, Asia, Australia, South America, and everywhere else, as long as we can. Thanks for reading. In grind we crust, in love we rot. Cheers." - CLOUD RAT
