The Cruelest Animal


The Cruelest Animal has been a work in progress since since 2009. We started as a recording project featuring guest performances by various Los Angeles musicians and have matured in to a full fledged live band. Our sound is rooted in early 90s grunge rock, but is inspired by a wide variety of styles, including classic prog rock groups like King Crimson and Pink Floyd, as well as Trip Hop acts like Massive Attack, Dj Shadow, and Radiohead.
