WISDOM IN CHAINS: Entire The God Rhythm LP From Pennsylvania Punk/Hardcore Kingpins Unleashed Early Via Blow The Scene

May 29th, 2015

Eastern Pennsylvania’s unstoppable WISDOM IN CHAINS is now streaming their empowering The God Rhythm LP in its entirety. Initially set for release on June 30th, the album’s street date has been pushed forward, now set to hit the streets on June 16th, and today, the entire anthem-packed, fourteen-track record is now playing two weeks before its new official public destination through an exclusive early stream at Blow The Scene.

The God Rhythm is fueled with the same infectious brew of oi/punk-inspired hardcore WISDOM IN CHAINS has been internationally championed for delivering on their prior four full-length titles and many other releases since their 2001 inception, but here the band delivers their most heroic tunes, investigative lyrics, and memorable choruses yet. With almost forty minutes of hook-laden sing-alongs and metallic breaks built for full-on live riots, recorded by Len Carmichael at Trax East and Carmichael Sound, with the vocals recorded at Mountainside Studios by Rich Rescigno, The God Rhythm boasts the most victorious WISDOM IN CHAINS material to date.

Proudly unleash WISDOM IN CHAINS’ bold The God Rhythm album through an early Blow The Scene exclusive stream at THIS LOCATION.

Also check out the extensive interview trailer on the album’s creation at New Noise Magazine HERE.

Preordered physical copies of The God Rhythm are shipping to fans early, first thing next week; place orders for the CD, LP and merch bundles via Fast Break! Records RIGHT HERE.

Having just stormed the mighty Black N’ Blue Bowl in NYC, WISDOM IN CHAINS has confirmed the details of their home turf record release show for the new album, with an outdoor BBQ event planned at Club Reverb in Reading, Pennsylvania on June 27th, with support from Strength For A Reason, Yesterday’s Youth and more.  The band will also return to This Is Hardcore Festival on July 23rd, the multi-day fest to once again overthrow Philadelphia with WISDOM IN CHAINS set to join the likes of the Misfits, The Exploited, the Cro-Mags, Negative Approach, Chokehold, Nails, All Out War, Bane, Biohazard and many others. August will see the band returning to Europe, confirmed to perform at Brutal Assault in the Czech Republic in early August with At The Gates, Cannibal Corpse, Killing Joke, Napalm Death, Nuclear Assault, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Triptykon and endless others, with a set of tour dates surrounding the festival to be announced in the coming days.

OMMADON: UK Drone/Doom Duo To Undrape Empathy For The Wicked Via Golden Mantra This July

May 28th, 2015

Following the crushing doom of their critically-adored, 2014 double LP, V, which earned a spot on Rolling Stone’s 20 Best Metal Albums Of 2014, UK drone/doom duo, OMMADON, continues their perpetual quest to achieve sonic annihilation of the self through unadulterated heaviness with Empathy For The Wicked. Boasting just one earth-rupturing track broken into two parts, Empathy For The Wicked was recorded live, mixed by OMMADON and mastered by recording legend, Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Zoroaster, Eyehategod, Taurus, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth etc.), who gave it the final crushing touches it deserves.

Where OMMADON’s previous scores were all recorded in the Highlands of Scotland surrounded by forest, Empathy For The Wicked marks their first release to be recorded on an industrial estate in urban Northumberland surrounded by the dregs of humanity. The first track from Empathy For The Wicked was originally recorded for the cassette split with Horse Latitudes and Coltsblood. During that session, OMMADON decided to continue recording through the night and drone out the riff which became the second side to Empathy For The Wicked.

Empathy For The Wicked will be released on 12″ vinyl via Golden Mantra on July 15th, 2015 with preorders available at: www.goldenmantra.co.uk. Teasers to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Critical Hails For V:

A hypnotic, dead-eyed combination where patience, misanthropy and endurance collide; a zombie chained to a pole walking the same ugly circle.” – Rolling Stone

“Split across four sides of vinyl, the double record was mastered by Billy Anderson… so you can bet your favourite Sunn O))) picture disc on this thing sounding heavier than a dying planet.” — Terrorizer

“I love this album because it’s so preposterously barbaric and for such an extended period of time and it’s beyond excessive. It’s an absolute endurance test, and by the end of it I was not the same as I’d come into it. There aren’t a lot of albums you can say that about.” – The Sludgelord”OMMADON categorically prove that it is still possible to make compelling music within the field of drone-doom, an area that I personally had considered long since mined dry.” — The Sleeping Shaman

OMMADON’s V has more in common with the harsh, acidic fuzz of Conan, and Earth’s early work, but much, much more abrasive.” — Blog Of Putrefaction

“Over the last couple of years I’ve been lucky enough to listen to some quite excellent instrumental doom, and OMMADON’s V is right up there with the very best.” — Lair Of Filth

“Listening to the two 45-minute tracks on V is like trying to imagine your own burial under the Himalayas.” — Echoes And Dust

OMMADON Personnel:
David Tobin – guitars
Ewan Mackenzie – drums, noise

DIABOLICUM: New Hymn From Industrial Black Metal Misery Makers Playing At No Clean Singing; Band To Unleash First Full-Length In Fourteen Years Via Code666

May 28th, 2015

Ia Pazuzu (The Abyss Of The Shadows) is the impending new long player from Swedish industrial black metal misery makers, DIABOLICUM. Now boasting the ill-omened vocal tidings of Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth, the record breaks the band’s fourteen-year slumber and boasts nine harrowing psalms of disease and torment. The record will see release on July 7th, 2015 via Italy’s Code666. In celebration of its official ignition, today No Clean Singing delivers the first taste of plague with fifth cranium-crusher, “Salvation Through Vengeance.”

DIABOLICUM are known for their skill in integrating the savagery of Swedish black metal and the driving pulse of industrial music,” issues the esteemed music portal, “and ‘Salvation Through Vengeance’ displays that union in striking fashion, significantly augmented by Kvarforth’s crazed howls and roars (which hold nothing back) and Likstrand’s boiling guitar solo. The song erupts like a black metal cyclone dropping without warning from storm clouds overhead. A vocal sample then provides a bridge to a more industrialized, keyboard-driven segment, which is then overtaken by that wild, transfixing guitar solo as the song ramps up again into a whirlwind of knives and blood. It’s a terrorizing adrenaline trigger that leaves us salivating for the rest of the album.”

Sample the tones of terror at THIS LOCATION.

Initially spawned in 1994 by Sasrof and Thorne under the Imperial moniker, DIABOLICUM stands among the prime instigators of the industrial black metal scene. The collective’s first demo appeared under the title Mori Voluntaria. The tape was recorded in just two days at a mental hospital and included the session vocals of Blackblood (Tommy Dahlström now of Aeon). Following various personnel shifts, Imperial unleashed The Imperial Darkness demo with vocals and lead guitar handled by Thyrfing (Stefan Dhalberg) with third demo, De FÆrdÆmdas Legion, unveiled by Arte De Occulta shortly thereafter. By 1997, members of Imperial formed black metal collective, Helvete, together with Mysteriis and Kraath of Setherial. The project was put on hold when guitarist Sasrof took over bass responsibilities for Setherial.

Two years later, Imperial changed their name to DIABOLICUM. Nathzion (AKA Zeb Nilsson now of Aeon) joined the ranks as lead guitarist and DIABOLICUM’s debut, the annihilating The Grandeur Of Hell, dropped in 1999 via Napalm Records. In the summer of 2000, DIABOLICUM fled Napalm to explore new opportunities and forged a union with Italian imprint, Code666. Wielding a flawless meld of Swedish black metal and industrial ambient noise, 2001’s resulting The Dark Blood Rising full-length is now considered a cult classic among the industrial black metal scene. In the years to follow, the band published a collection of early demos (The Killing Spree 1.5) and two split 7″ EP – one with Watain; the other with Angst – before penning their third diabolic opus with new vocalist Niklas Kvarforth (Shining) and lead guitarist Likstrand. After several setbacks and delays, the band is finally ready to undrape Ia Pazuzu (The Abyss Of The Shadows). Spewing forth nine merciless tracks of sonic scorn, and featuring guest appearances by Malfeitor Fabban (Aborym) and Vargher (Naglfar, Bewitched, Ancient Wisdom), with cryptic artwork by Maxime Taccardi, Ia Pazuzu (The Abyss Of The Shadows) is anguished, devouring and destined to become a new milestone within the industrial black metal community.

Ia Pazuzu (The Abyss Of The Shadows) will be available in special digipack CD format as well as a limited edition, double gatefold LP and deluxe limited leather box on July 7th, 2015 via Code666. Preorders are currently available at THIS LOCATION.

HOPE DRONE: Australian Atmospheric Blackened Sludge Metal Collective To Release Relapse Debut This July; Teaser Track Posted

May 28th, 2015
“Mourn the last light, its fleeting passage; Mourn the breaking day; For every breath is written; And every end is fated in its beginnings…” — “Every End Is Fated In Its Beginning”

Australian atmospheric blackened sludge metal collective, HOPE DRONE, emerges from the depths with their Relapse Records debut, Cloak Of Ash, set for release this July. A rich, captivating, seven-song stroke of sonic brilliance, Cloak Of Ash was captured by Christopher Brownbill (Idylls, Throes, Coffin Birth) at Wavelength Studios and Underground Audio in Brisbane, Australia, mixed by Brownbill and HOPE DRONE at Wavelength Studios, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Yob, High On Fire, Integrity) at Audiosiege in Portland,Oregon. Uniting chest-cavingly poignant atmospheres with the uncompromising heaviness of a thousand tidal waves, Cloak Of Ash is dynamic and textured; nihilistic, doomed and earth shattering cloaked in the hopeless dissonance of a world gone rotten. Fans of Altar Of Plagues, Vattnet Viskar, Wolves In The Throne Room, Woods Of Desolation and Cult Of Luna pay heed.

Sample the suffocating sounds of fifth movement, “Every End Is Fated In Its Beginning” at YouTube HERE or via SoundCloud HERE.

Cloak Of Ash Track Listing:
1. Unending Grey
2. Riverbeds Hewn In Marrow
3. The World Inherited
4. The Chords That Thrum Beneath The Earth
5. Every End Is Fated In Its Beginning
6. The Waves Forever Shatter Upon Our Shores
7. Carried Apart By The Ceaseless Tides

HOPE DRONE was forged in 2011 and have since released one demo, From Mimas To Phoebe, in 2012, and their self-titled, Sanford Parker-mixed LP in 2013 which was called, “fresh, invigorating and captivating,” by Cvlt Nation, “a bleak style of black metal strongly indebted to the Cascadian variety and played with surprising maturity and aplomb,” and “a band to watch,” by Teeth Of The Divine, and, “possibly the most devastatingly nihilistic recording I’ve ever heard, both instrumentally andlyrically,” by AngryMetalGuy.

Cloak Of Ash will be available on CD, double LP and digitally via Relapse Records on July 24th, 2015. Physical preorders are currently available at THIS LOCATION. For digital preorders, go HERE.

HOPE DRONE:
Karl Hartwig – guitars, noise

IDES OF GEMINI Announces Summer Tour With Clay Rendering, Performance At Crucialfest And More

May 28th, 2015

[photo credit: Michelle Pullman]

IDES OF GEMINI are very pleased to announce their latest bout of West Coast live ceremonies. Set to commence on July 14th in Oakland, the journey will coil its way around ten cities through California, Oregon, Vancouver and Washington, coming to a close on July 24th in Glendale. The band will be joined by blackened dream pop duo, Clay Rendering. As a precursor to the expedition, the ethereal trio will play two shows supporting Oxbow next week. Two weeks later the IDES will head to Salt Lake City for a performance at Crucialfest alongside Rosetta, Norska, Disforia and more followed by slot on the Demon Lung record release show in Las Vegas June 20th.

The latest round of IDES OF GEMINI rituals follows the band’s run supporting acclaimed indie rockers, Mountain Goats, which was cut short due to a medical injury sustained by drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson. “After the disappointment of having to drop off the Mountain Goats tour last month,” issues guitarist J. Bennett, “we’re looking forward to getting out on the road again. Unfortunately, Kelly’s injury is still healing so she won’t be able to join us for the June shows with Oxbow and Demon Lung or our appearance at Cruficalfest in Salt Lake. The good news is that our friend Sash Popovic, formerly of [singer/bassist] Sera’s [Timms] old band, Black Math Horseman, will be filling in for those. He’s a killer drummer and a great guy, so we’re very thankful that he’s agreed to help us out. If all goes according to plan, Kelly should be back in action for the July run with Clay Rendering.”

IDES OF GEMINI:
6/05/2015 Brick & Mortar – San Francisco, CA w/ Oxbow
6/07/2015 The Echo – Los Angeles, CA w/ Oxbow
6/19/2015 Crucialfest – Salt Lake City, UT [info]

IDES OF GEMINI released their critically-hailed, Chris Rakestraw (Danzig)-produced Old World New Wave full-length last September via Neurot Recordings as well as a special, limited Carthage/Strange Fruit seven-inch via Magic Bullet Records last month in honor of Record Store Day.

If you missed it, the band recently unveiled the haunting visual accompaniment to their reinterpretation of “Strange Fruit.” Written as a poem by Abel Meeropol in 1937, and set to music famously by Billie Holiday in 1939, the song stems from Meeropol’s original protest piece against the racial lynchings that marred the early 20th century in America and has been covered many times over including versions by Nina Simone, Annie Lennox, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Diana Ross, and countless others. The solemn video was directed by Timms, and is currently playing at Revolver Magazine RIGHT HERE.

IDES OF GEMINIs Old World New Wave is available on CD and digitally via Neurot Recordings and on vinyl via SIGE Records. For CD orders, point your browser HERE and for T-shirt bundles, point your browser to THIS LOCATION. The seven-inch is currently available on limited black and clear wax at THIS LOCATION. Desirers of the digitals visit Magic Bullet’s BandCamp page HERE or iTunes HERE.

“A stark blend of black metal-derived guitar riffs, rigid, martial beats, and the haunting, gothic vocal harmonies of bassist Sera Timms and drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson, this album washes over the listener, feeling simultaneously comforting and unsettling.” – Decibel

“…the pure, sonic power of these songs… will knock you off your feet.” – Soundblab

“…an enjoyable dream-doom filled sonic journey from start to finish.” – Bearded Gentlemen Music

“…there’s enough droney doom on [Old World New Wave] to make you feel like you’re stuck in David Lynch’s dreams.” – Noisey

IDES OF GEMINI has a knack… for creating a world of sound and inviting the listener in. Their music has the feel of a classic horror film: all psychology, no fake blood or cheap startles. If there’s a goth revival afoot in metal culture – and, given last year’s releases by In Solitude, Beastmilk and others, there’s certainly an argument to be made for that – then IDES OF GEMINI is among its most evocative front-runners.” – Invisible Oranges

AGALLOCH continues to tour in support of their critically-adored The Serpent & The Sphere opus, released last year via Profound Lore. Captured by legendary producer/engineer Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Zoroaster, Asunder, Ommadon, Taurus, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth etc.) at Cloud City Studios in Portland, Oregon (and mixed by Anderson at Everything Hz), the offering includes a guest appearance by guitarist Nathanaël Larochette of Canadian neofolk trio, Musk Ox, and finds the band delivering some of their most forward-thinking and stimulating compositions to date, elevating their progressive musical oeuvre to a challenging new level whilst still maintaining true to their signature sound.

“…their most refined and generous album to date, an elegant trip to unexpected ends.” – Pitchfork

“Whereas their triumphant previous album was painted in dark blues and glittering black, this one comes draped in muted grays and browns, calming earth tones that soothe rather than awe. If Marrow of the Spirit was a storm, The Serpent & The Sphere is the stillness that descends over damp stones and battered branches once the howling winds have quieted.” – Spin

“As much as it is possible to describe the hissing whispers and supernova roars John Haughm’s vocal performance, or the galactic wonder of Don Anderson’s guitars, the sticky and celestial spirals of Jason Walton’s bass lines, or the powerful alchemical engine of Aesop Dekker’s drumming, together they form something greater: a massive, sublime universe unto itself.” – Exclaim

AGALLOCH has always had a strong folk theme flowing through their music, a reflection of their heritage in the woods of the American Northwest. But on many of the songs here, the listener’s eyes and ears are drawn away from the rivers and the trees and up towards the night sky… a fantastic addition to the band’s legacy and a brilliant set of work on its own.” – Metal Injection

“To be a fan of the band demands patience; they make you wait, and they make you work. But when the payoff arrives, it is thrilling, glorious, momentous. Everything comes into focus. Everything makes sense.” – Stereogum

“…a Homeric journey of a record peppered with some of the band’s finest moments to date…at once progressive and reflexive.” – MetalSucks

ÅRABROT: Maiden Single From Impending You Bunch Of Idiots EP By Norwegian Experimentalists Premiered Through Noisey

May 27th, 2015
[photo by Andre Loyning]

Norwegian Grammy Award-winning experimental rock cult, ÅRABROT, has just released the maiden single from their latest EP, You Bunch Of Idiots, through Vice Magazine’s Noisey music blog, just weeks ahead of the record’s release, and the band’s touring return to North American shores.

You Bunch Of Idiots is the third in a trio of themed EPs from ÅRABROT, the first two of which — Murder As Art and I Modi — having already seen release via Fysisk Format, who now partners with the Eolian Empire for the band’s first official US title. A ferocious blast of twisted noise rock and poetic rants, You Bunch Of Idiots drops six tracks of hook-laden noise rock with sludge, industrial, and rock ‘n’ roll flourishes, through it all spit-flecked spout-offs, hissing fits, and bellowing which draws you in and keeps you there. The EP was recorded and mixed by Milton von Krogh at Djura Missionshus, Djura, Sweden, and Taakeheimen Lydrike, Oslo, Norway, with vocal overdubs recorded by Karin Park at Djura Missionshus, Djura, Sweden, after which the platter was mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering. The excellent cover art was provided by Norwegian artist Johannes Høie, who has handled the prior two EPs in the series as well as other ÅRABROT merch.

Landing at the number four spot on You Bunch Of Idiots, “Mea Culpa” shows the disturbing underbelly of what ÅRABROT is so proficient in creating, seamlessly genre-bending extreme forms of music into an unclassifiable and mesmerizingly warped and unique sound. Noisey issues alongside the exclusive premiere of the track, “…here it seems that one man’s bewilderment is another man’s finger hovering over the detonator of a doomsday device while he entertains the idea of ending the world. That casual (and sometimes playful) disregard for humanity and all its conventions that persists throughout the EP comes to a head on its first single, ‘Mea Culpa,’ which Nernes penned while drinking alone in an old London pub on a dismal afternoon shortly before learning the full extent of his health condition…”.

Transmit ÅRABROT’s “Mea Culpa” at maximum volume courtesy of Noisey RIGHT HERE.

You Bunch Of Idiots is set for release via Eolian Empire and Fysisk Format as a 12” vinyl EP including download card and all digital outlets on June 23rd. Preorders for the vinyl edition of the record are now available in North America via Eolian Empire HERE and via Fysisk Format HERE.

On the week of the EP’s stateside release, ÅRABROT will invade North America for three weeks, touring in support of You Bunch Of Idiots. The band was slated to tour the West Coast US last year, and unfortunately had to cancel the trek due to main man Kjetil Nernes’ bout with cancer. Having beaten the hideous disease, the band will now hit the US and Canada with direct support from UK sludge power duo, Ghold, with appearances from the likes of Dispirit and Lycus on several shows, and Pinkish Black on the final five dates.

ÅRABROT North American Summer Tour w/ Ghold:
6/24/2015 O’Brien’s Pub – Boston, MA
6/26/2015 The Depot – York, PA
6/27/2015 Now That’s Class – Cleveland, OH

7/18/2015 Strange Matter – Richmond, VA w/ Pinkish Black
7/19/2015 The Studio, Webster Hall – New York, NY w/ Pinkish Black

Led by songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Kjetil Nernes (songwriter, guitar, vocals), for fourteen years ÅRABROT has fearlessly trudged through the European underground, carving out a sonic territory of sludge, punk, metal, and art rock, all collapsed into something uniquely their own.  Wearing perennial outsider status like a badge of honor, ÅRABROT laughs in the faces of the naysayers and proudly towers above them. While drawing from the likes of Dadaism, The Marquis De Sade, and transgressive art might be a recipe for pretentious tripe in the wrong hands, the outfit wraps it up with winks and grins, and — most importantly — rocks the hell out. One of Europe’s premiere touring acts, their devastating power live cannot be underestimated, channeling stadium-level theatrics and volume for the underground club set.

VEHEMENCE: Phoenix Death Metal Outfit Returns After A Decade Of Silence; New LP To See Fall Release Via Battleground Records

May 27th, 2015

Following an entire decade without a new album, Phoenix-based melodic death metal kingpins, VEHEMENCE, return to full-time duty in 2015, having reactivated the band and completed their fourth full-length studio full-length, Forward Without Motion, which is now set for release this Autumn via Battleground Records.

Their first new album since 2004’s Metal Blade Records-released Helping The World To See, VEHEMENCE returns to the death metal fold with a stunning new album that will surely see the band regaining their traction within the scene after their time off the grid. Forward Without Motion is the culmination of years of hard work and the collective desire to write the best songs and capture the best performances. Guitarist and founding member Bjorn Dannov perhaps says it most succinctly when describing the record, “I really believe this is our strongest album to date. With our previous albums, we were so inexperienced in the studio so I was never really happy with the final product, production-wise. This album I feel represents the songs well. We wanted to capture a tight performance, but not overly produced and sound replaced like a lot of modern metal albums. We still wanted to maintain an organic element to the sound, which I believe we achieved.” Working on the songs off and on for several years between 2007 and 2011, VEHEMENCE began a methodical, painstaking tracking process for Forward Without Motion between 2012 and 2014, the album’s guitars, bass, and vocals being recorded at the home studios of Dannov and guitarist Kyle Moeller, with the drums being recorded at Villain Studios in Phoenix. “Kyle did all the mixing, reamping, and mastering,” Says Dannov. “It was really great to have those tools at our disposal, without having to worry about a budget or studio expenses.”

When listening to Forward Without Motion, one will discover the refreshing sounds of a band creatively reborn and seasoned by experience. The album flows with a relentless, throat grabbing energy that never flags and begs for repeated spins. This cohesive power is nowhere more apparent than in the strength of the instrumental and vocal performances, which slash and hammer their way out of the speakers with a passion rarely found in the cold, mostly lifeless corpses that are most modern death metal recordings. When asked about the lyrical themes behind the songs and album title of the album, VEHEMENCE vocalist Nathan Gearhart remarks, “The lyrics of Forward Without Motion each tell a unique story dealing with pain, loss, sadness, and horror. Written over the course of twelve years, each piece stands alone in subject. The consistent theme of the lyrics as a whole denote humanity’s dark side, and summarize our lives and impact on our world during our limited time. Nothing changes. Nothing gets better or worse. It’s all the same. It’s time without a number. We are all going to die leaving this world just as fucked as those before us, and future generations will continue this cycle.” Gearhart also has much to say about the core ethos of the band when reflecting upon both the present and the years past, “Bjorn and I have been jamming together since 1996. Mark and Andy joined in ’97-‘98. VEHEMENCE is a band of brothers with no bigger intent other than getting together and creating together. Kyle is a great compliment to the core of the band, and his involvement along with the material and performance contributed by Jake Green are what helps to take us into our current chapter. Forward Without Motion is our life’s work. I am so proud of what we have created, and I hope others enjoy our art as much as I do.”

VEHEMENCE will release Forward Without Motion through Battleground Records on October 27th in various formats, including a 2xLP set on 180-gram black vinyl in gatefold packaging, a CD version, and across various digital platforms.

In conjunction with the release of Forward Without Motion, VEHEMENCE will be performing several shows in support of the album shortly before the street date. Additional information on the album, audio samples, an official video and more will be released throughout the Summer and early Autumn months.

XIBALBA has issued an official video for the revolutionary anthem “Guerrilla,” one of the most vital tracks from their third LP, Tierra Y Libertad, which saw release in January via Southern Lord Recordings.

In complete DIY fashion, XIBALBA basically took the concept of their classic “Cold” video to the next level, this time the overthrowing an entire neighborhood in their hometown of Pomona, California. Directed, shot and edited by Shawn Skadburg and Matt Welch for Nine/One films, with footage by Danny Mayo and Mike Sogoff, the video for “Guerrilla” features a brutalizing live uprising filmed at a live outdoor show in a Pomona neighborhood, utilizing the voices of their friends and family to carry the message of the track to the masses.

Through a premiere at Lambgoat this week, XIBALBA’s “Guerrilla” is now playing RIGHT HERE.

Also view XIBALBA’s previously released video for “Enemigo” at Revolver HERE.

The band will play in Santa Ana later this month alongside the likes of Ignite, Excel, Strife, Union 13 and more. One month later they return to the mighty This Is Hardcore in Philadelphia, performing on July 25th with the Misfits, Cro-Mags, Bane, Killing Time, Biohazard and tons more. September will see XIBALBA hitting Ghostfest in Leeds and Bristol, UK on 5th and 6th of the month alongside Hatebreed, Emmure, Despised Icon, Born Of Osiris, Turnstile and more, followed immediately by a Southeast Asia tour with confirmed details on that trek to be released in the coming days, and upon their return, a show in Los Angeles with No Warning, Lights Out, Incendiary and others on September 26th. October 9th through 11th will see the band on the California Deathfest at the Oakland Metro with Infest, Autopsy, Immolation, Dead Infection, Noothgrush, Impaled and many more, followed by their invasion of Southwest Terror Fest in Tucson, Arizona the weekend of October 15th – 18th with the likes of Sleep, Dropdead, The Body, Thou and dozens of other acts to be announced.

With some of their most savage tones and decimating breakdowns to date, XIBALBA continues to overthrow new audiences on their third LP, Tierra Y Libertad, Recorded by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Disgrace) at The Pit in Van Nuys, California, the LP’s forty-four minute onslaught delivers more haunting, atmospheric tones and traumatic death-infused metallic hardcore, the band having once again commissioned Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation) for the album’s cover artwork. Tierra Y Libertad is available on CD and grey vinyl LP direct through XIBALBA’s Southern Lord store HERE, and digitally through BandCamp HERE, as well as through All In Merch including a t-shirt package HERE.
