Alpinist To Release Two Vinyl Albums Together

Alpinist will be releasing two previous vinyl albums together, titled "Lichtlærm/Minus Mensch," in CD format through Southern Lord Recordings this May 24th, 2011. The record label commented on the release:

"Alpinist hail from Munster Germany, and produce crushingly dark hardcore/crust with blinding intensity. The band is meant to be understood by those who are sick of people following musical trends, those who want to live out music with dedication and those who believe in expressing their own ideals through their own art, and their socio-political lyrics are openly and strongly against all forms of fascism, racism, sexism and homophobia.

"Southern Lord will release Lichtlærm/Minus Mensch on CD this May 24, in a limited edition run of 2,000 copies. The disc contains both of the band's albums that were previously only available on limited vinyl releases, making this the first ever CD release from Alpinist."
