XIBALBA: New LP Streaming At Brooklyn Vegan; North American Tour Begins This Week


As Hasta La Muerte, the second LP from Southern Cali breakdown warriors XIBABLA, nears release, in anticipation of the album’s disbursement, and as the unit prepare to embark on tour in support of the mammoth LP later this week, Brooklyn Vegan is streaming all of Hasta La Muerte. Test the durability of your office furniture by busting out a wicked statgedive in the workplace to the record’s eleven devastating tales RIGHT HERE.

Taking their down-tuned assault to iniquitous new dimensions, XIBALBA’s breakdowns hit with the force of tsunamis and their riffs like mires of quicksand on Hasta La Muerte, the band’s intense style infusing some of the most doom-ridden tones one will experience within the hardcore genre with unstoppable force. Recorded by Taylor Young (of labelmates Nails), and sought out renowned death metal artist Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.) to craft the foreboding cover art.
