Alma Negra/ Himlayan Split 12"

by Alma Negra

  • Record/Vinyl

    This is a vinyl, mixed color, limited edition record - with 3 songs by each band - recorded and mastered in 2011 by Stan Wood. 300 pressed at URP, original artwork illustrated and hand printed by Erin Page of Kill Hatsumomo prints.

    Here is the review of the record by Reckless Records:
    "HELL YEAH. 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. The only
    drawback is that this LP doesn’t come with a bag of weed & a sixer
    of Old Style. Otherwise, trust us on this one . . . it’s RECOMMENDED! "

"...It's been a while since music critic types have been this gushy about a local act, but the praise is well deserved. Tempos are up, guitars and distortion are abundant, and then Erin Page starts singing … and that's that. It's sonic rapture of the most glorious kind" - Kevin Williams, The Chicago Tribune
