Clouds Burned By Sunshine


Release Date: 1997
Format: 7-inch

After an incredibly brief existence, Krakatoa called it a day, seeing its core members join Threadbare and Harvest. However, they would briefly reunite and reminisce in the summer of '95, in the process writing and recording the two songs that would form this seven-inch before once again disbanding. The two songs on Clouds Burned By Sunshine demonstrate the intrinsic link between hardcore and metal, with Krakatoa set firmly in the melodic metal sphere, echoing the new wave of British heavy metal greats but with a hardcore slant, most prevalent in the vocals and song construction, and foreshadowing the current trend of Gothenburg-influenced hardcore by years. While Clouds Burned By Sunshine was meant as an epitaph, it was a welcome taste of things to come.
