Pomona, California’s XIBALBA have released the first single from their approaching Tierra Y Libertad LP with a stream of the album’s third track, Invierno now playing at Noisey.
Bearing an impressive arsenal of recordings amassed since 2010, including notable splits, EPs, demos and two prior LPs, each chapter of XIBALBA’s recorded bloodline to date has seen the band expand upon their dense, hateful sound, and their third LP, Tierra Y Libertad, proves to follow this ominous path. With some of the band’s most savage death metal-fuelled hardcore and decimating breakdowns to date, XIBALBA still continues to impress with new atmospheric tones and harrowing elements without straying from their unstoppable warpath. With nearly forty-four minutes of unrelenting revolutionary violence, Tierra Y Libertad was recorded by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Disgrace) at The Pit in Van Nuys, as with their lauded Hasta La Muerte LP, and the cover art as well following the path of Hasta with the employment of Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation) for Tierra Y Libertad’s cover artwork.
Now stream Tierra Y Libertad’s intoxicating third track, Invierno at Noisey.
Southern Lord will release Tierra Y Libertad on CD, LP and digital formats on January 26th in Europe and 27th in North America. In the meantime, stand by for further XIBALBA developments in January including an official video for the album’s opening track, Enemigo, additional tour dates and more.
