It’s time for another round-up of what’s been going on in the world of death metal so far in 2015 – Rob McAuslan returns to guide you through the grunting, squealing, roaring, shouting beast that is heavy metal’s br00tal side.
There are 6 artists sharing this name:
1) Xibalba is a southern California metal band, formed in 2007. They are influenced by Disembodied, Morbid Angel, Martyr A.D., Santa Sangre, Bloodlet, Obituary, Crowbar, Unbroken, Earth Crisis, Downset, Overcast, and Sepultura.
They're bilingual and musically play a blend of metalcore and death metal.

We really should pay more attention to our email inbox. Okay, well, possibly not – there are 2000+ unread emails in there already, but when someone emailed us about Xibalba, well, we really should’ve gotten on it ASAP. Because we just listened to the Californian death metal/hardcore mob’s forthcoming second album during our lunchbreak, and it almost made us wee with excitement.
