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.
Southern Lord released Tierra Y Libertad on CD, LP and digital formats on January 26th 2015 in Europe.
