Xibalba Release New Music Video, “Guerrilla”

xibalba album
A few miles east of Los Angeles lies Pomona, California. It is the birth place of Tom Waits, Jessica Alba, and most notably (to this magazine, at least) Xibalba. Xibalba more or less translates to “place of fear,” and it is the Mayan underworld, a place of brutality and pain. While the band’s name might not directly translate, their combination brand of slow punishing death metal and hardcore does.

 
Their three studio albums share violent and emotional lyrics in English and Spanish, which is a breath of fresh air in the predominantly English written genre. They speak out against racism and inequality among other injustices and topics. Their most recent video, “Guerrilla,” from their January 2015 album Tierra Y Libertad (Land and Liberty) is one example.

“I’m not a spic,” the vocalist adds in the video after the song ends. “I’m a human fucking being.” Check out those humans and others in their video and let’s see some love in the comments.
