Zao / Yashira Split 7"

Cat#: MOM051

$8.99 USD

Originally a part of our 2018 Seven Inch Of The Month Club, this now-legendary split between Zao & Yashira has been sold out practically since the day it was announced! We are proud to bring this back into print with some new vinyl variants as well as some new cover art and layouts. This new pressing also includes new center label artwork and was pressed with a small hole (whereas the original pressing had a more traditional large center hole that requires an adapter).

Please Note: These records are in hand and shipping immediately!

Talk about a doozy of a release.

Here we have the legendary Zao backed with their friends Yashira! These two played a good amount of shows together over the years, and when presented with doing this split...it was a no-brainer!

The Zao contribution is a straight-forward banger. It's a touch over 3 minutes and it hits all of the major marks that we've come to want/desire from the band: Dan's tortured and visceral screams with a touch of Scott's singing vocals behind it and a pummeling rhythm section behind it all. It's a bruiser, for sure. If you aren't familiar with Yashira yet, this new track is a great introduction, as these guys do an effortless blend of post-metal and doom and this track fits in perfectly alongside their two current releases. It's atmospheric and haunting, all while maintaining some serious heaviness to it.

To pay homage to Seth Howard (Yashira's late drummer), we also created a completely hand-crafted variant this time around, which features a screen printed, thick poly outer sleeve, a custom made black insert printed with metallic silver ink, and screen printed center labels. This variant is pressed on an opaque magenta vinyl and is hand-numbered out of 100 copies.

The orange swirl variant is available exclusively from Zao through their Bandcamp page and at the merch table during future tour dates. We will not have copies of this variant for sale, so you'll need to visit them to acquire one!
