Xibalba Reveals New Album "Hasta La Muerte" Details

Southern California’s dominating hardcore unit Xibalba have confirmed the details of their forthcoming sophomore LP, "Hasta La Muerte." The following press release was issued:

"Xibalba’s debut LP Madre Mia Gracias Por Los Dias — released in 2011 via LP by A389 Records and later on CD by Southern Lord — combined with a relentless touring schedule for the past two years, have earned Xibalba the utmost respect from hardcore and metal fans worldwide. After officially signing with Southern Lord late last year, the time for the band’s first official release for the label to be unleashed grows near.

"Taking their down-tuned assault to iniquitous new dimensions, Xibalba’s ravenous breakdowns hit with the force of tsunamis and their riffs like mires of quicksand on Hasta La Muerte, showcasing more than ever how well the unit delivers such low-end savagery while remaining resilient, undeviating from their course of destruction. The album now confirmed for North American release on August 14th, the band recorded with Taylor Young (Nails), and outsourced the album’s powerful cover art concept to renowned death metal artist Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.)."
