*300 copies limited edition* "Come October" is the sixth album from Himukalt, the solo project of Nevada-based Ester Kärkkäinen. Originally released as a tape in 2018 (Found Remains), this is the first time on vinyl for the album, and comes with additional 3 tracks based upon source material from the Come October sessions, making up the entire second platter. Remastered for vinyl by Grant Richardson.
"With a sound that is rough and decidedly gritty, the analogue derived tones are soot and rust infused, while the vocals feature as emotional and bile drenched (aka echo distorted / treated). Minimal structure is employed throughout, based around crude abstracted rhythmic programming, choppy static, shuddering distortion and occasional tonal blasts, but the end result is an industrial noise 'post-mortem' style than anything typically of a harsh noise variety. The minimalist approach to sound and composition gives a clear nod to the likes of the psychological and death obsessed sounds of Atrax Morgue, while the sonic treatment of vocals renders them for tonal impact rather than decipherable intent... a liberating release" - Noise Receptor
