Xibalba Unveils New Album Artwork

Xibalba today reveals further details regarding third album, "Tierra Y Libertad," which is set to be unleashed on January 26th in Europe and the 27th in North America through Southern Lord. The label had this to say:

"The Pomona California five-piece, infamous for their deliriously heavy hardcore death metal, are proving once again that their colossal clout outweighs the sum of their contemporaries. Tierra Y Libertad finds Xibalba in their most threatening form yet, forcibly colliding elite ‘90s death metal with reckless down-tuned doom tones and their most fist-swinging beatdowns yet.

"The breakdown has become Xibalba’s crippling modus operandi, refined over the course of their career and re-envisioned as a new terrifying beast, creating a nefarious intensity on Tierra Y Libertad usually only reserved for majestic black metal, transcendental doom and post-metal, but here hewn from furious violence.

"Across forty-five minutes and eight tracks of brutality, Xibalba carries their disregard for the recommended dosage of unholy stomp that a listener could possibly take, made all the more devastating by the returning hand of Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Disgrace) behind the recording controls at The Pit in Van Nuys. Similarly, Xibalba called upon Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation) to create Tierra Y Libertad’s cover artwork, as with Hasta La Muerte." More...

Xibalba Finishes Recording New Album

Pomona, California's unstoppable Xibalba has completed tracking a third LP, and is wrapping up the final elements in order to unleash these monstrous recordings in early 2015, once again through Southern Lord. The label comments:

"The unforgiving rage of Xibalbo's death-metal influenced hardcore has never been more apparent, with the new album showcasing nearly forty-five minutes of their most extreme material yet, as they continue to explore more ominous and foreboding tones.

"Now confirmed to bear the title 'Tierra Y Libertad,' the eight-song call to arms was recorded at The Pit in Van Nuys by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Disgrace) as was the 2012 sophomore LP, 'Hasta La Muerte.' Similarly, Xibalba returned to Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation) to create Tierra Y Libertad's cover artwork."

Southern Lord will unleash the remorseless "Tierra Y Libertad" in January 2015, with a final street date, the album art and more information to be leaked in the coming weeks. In conjunction with the release of the new LP, Xibalba will hit the road hard again in 2015. Stay tuned for dates.
