The first EP 'Ghost Town' was released in Autumn 2008 to strong reviews leading to an album recording in 2009, set for release in 2010 under the label Lone Vigil. Mike Taylor left the collective shortly after the albums completion and was replaced by Winterfylleth vocalist Chris Naughton.
Debut album ’Lassitude’ demonstrates the bands ability to make movements out of songs. The listener is taken on a journey from bleak, cinematic soundscapes to epic, dark industrial metal. Due to the un-characterisable nature of the music, Cloaca have appealed to many different audiences, supporting acts as diverse as ’Nadja’ and ’Wolves In The Throne Room’
