Alma Negra/Himalayan (Split) on Limited Edition Marble Colored LP
Limited to 300 Copies!
“2012 split LP from two of Chicago's newest, heaviest, beer-swillingest bands. Alma Negra have some serious love for the Melvins going on, but with their aloof, female vocals, they sometimes remind us of Jucifer's non-screamy songs. Although their first two songs chug right along, the last song on their side is a slow burn (pun fully intended) which we really like. Himalayan's songs are more full-steam-ahead, but still offer plenty of riffage similar to bands like High On Fire or Iron Age. Trust us on this one...it's recommended!” – Reckless Records Chicago
The Chicago Reader calls Alma Negra the “Ultimate marriage of local garage and metal” while Himalayan consists of the owners of Chicago's Emperor Custom Guitar Cabinets, former members of the band Raise the Red Lantern. Featuring 3-cuts a piece, Alma Negra holds down side one with the tracks "Drag the River," "Whore" and "Let It Burn" and Himalayan rules the flip with "Cutting In," "Ascendant" and "And So It Was Written."
Pick up their split 12” marble colored vinyl release and see what all the fuss is about! Silk-screened sleeves by Kill Hatsumomo. Limited edition of only 300 copies!
