Rat King specializes in creating ambient, eerie music. Signed on to Larval Transmission, this duo hails from Chennai and have been around since 2008. Their gamut of influences include David Lynch, Ingmar Bergman on the cinematic front to Scott Walker and black, death metal musically.
They garnered critical acclaim with their debut, the hugely experimental ‘The Plague Of Hamelin’. This was followed by a deeper plunge into the human psyche; the follow up ‘Larva‘.
Rat King is now back in action with the film score for Akam. An album release is in cards for later this year.
