After years of slogging away in practice spaces and riff dens in Melbourne, Year of the Rat have finally crawled out from their burrow of shredding pits and released their debut album, ‘Hell Bent‘ via Resist Records.

Hell Bent‘ is 10 tracks of “trying not to sound like everyone else, but still liking that shit“, taking cues from Merauder, Disfear, SOD, Suicidal Tendancies and All Out War.

Listen below.

Featuring members of Most Precious Blood, I Exist, Hitlist, Blkout and The Daylight Curse, they’ve been in bands, they know what they like and don’t like and they are stoked to unleash these ratty pits onto the masses.

The album is available on limited coloured vinyl [Here]. Digital is also available on iTunes [Here] or Bandcamp [Here].

You can catch the band supporting Mindsnare at The Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood next Friday 28th April.
