A punishing extreme metal unit from Chicago, Illinois, Like Rats is the death metal alter-ego of Windy City power-violence/grindcore horde Weekend Nachos.
Citing influences like Obituary, Death, and Entombed, as well as more contemporary blood-spatter specialists such as NAILS, Black Breath, and Dead in the Dirt, Like Rats issued their eponymous debut album in 2012 via A389 Recordings. After inking a deal with Southern Lord, the band headed back into the studio to begin work on their sophomore long player. The resulting II saw the light of day in early 2016. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
