Pomona, California-based metallic hardcore powerhouse Xibalba this week release their fourth full-length Años En Infierno, through Southern Lord, which is streaming exclusively at Cvlt Nation. To celebrate the album’s release, Xibalba will launch a special livestream feature via Twitch. Fans are encouraged to tune-in for a special session with the band including a Q+A, full album stream, and a crushing live performance. The stream will only be available for 24 hours so don’t miss it!
The stream kicks off at 2am in the UK, and if you subscribe to the channel now you’ll get a reminder when it goes live.
For the past thirteen years, Xibalba has been dedicated to carving a sound which combines unadulterated aggression booming out of the vocals, an ultra-heavy low-end frequency, colossal death metal riffs, brutal hardcore breakdowns, and a trademark groove now synonymous with the group. Showing no mercy and keeping their cultural message intact with their fourth full-length, Años En Infierno takes these conventions and finds a new way of expression that the band defines as, “more harsh, brutal, and creative in a metaphorical sense.”
Años En Infierno was produced by Arthur Rizk (Cro-Mags Power Trip, Inquisition) and completed with artwork by longtime collaborator Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation), who Ricky interviewed a while ago (part 1 / part 2).
Años En Infierno will see release on CD, LP and digital platforms on May 29th via Southern Lord Bandcamp, the label webshop in the US and the European webshop, with shirt packages at Closed Casket Activities.
