Re-rerelease of the long sold out Himukalt album, Vulgar, on pro Digipak CD.
Originally released on cassette in 2017 by No Rent Records, Vulgar was remastered by Grant Richardson (Gnawed).
It also includes two new songs for the format, “Not In This Body,” originally released on the Through a Glass Darkly compilation cassette, and “Want You To See Me (The Voyeur Tapes #15),” an exclusive bonus song.
The CD release also feature new collage work by the artist accompanied by a 16 page booklet.
Limited to 200 copies.
Vulgar marked a turning point for Himukalt’s Ester Kärkkäinen, the artist behind the fervent industrial noise project.
Having already released a couple of stellar albums on labels such as The Helen Scarsdale Agency and Angst, within a year no less, Himukalt honed the aggression and desperation of her previous works into a brooding album of aural confessions.
Reflections of Atrax Morgue and Genocide Organ can be heard throughout Vulgar, but the sonic dynamics and the pacing of the album is what makes Vulgar so unique.
With very personal lyrics purposefully buried under all the rumble as if to still keep some distance between the artist and listener, Vulgar only continues to grow in depth and strength with time.
