Roadrunner Records has announced the following:
Roadrunner Records and Warner Music Latina announce the eagerly anticipated debut album from Latin metal group De La Tierra. De La Tierra—the explosive self-titled collection from the Latin group consisting of Andreas Kisser, guitarist of Sepultura; Andrés Giménez, former leader of A.N.I.M.A.L.; Sr. Flavio, bassist of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs; and Alex González, drummer of Maná—features the lead single “Maldita Historia,” which is available now via the iTunes Store along with an official music video that made its worldwide premiere earlier today on several media outlets across the globe. Check out the video below:
De La Tierra, the band’s crushing 11-song debut, was recorded and mixed by Stanley Soares (Motörhead, Sepultura) in São Paulo, Guadalajara, Buenos Aires and Los Angeles and produced by the band themselves. The album, which marks an electrifying new chapter for the always daring members of De La Tierra, will feature lyrics sung entirely in both Spanish and Portuguese, elevating the group’s Latin roots.
“On De La Tierra, there are some moments when you feel the world is coming to an end and others when the sky seems to open up, letting the light shine,” says González. “It is metal that is fast, powerful, explosive, with lots of adrenaline. You have darkness and light. There is melody and also a lot of punch.”
De La Tierra’s history can be traced back 8 years to backstage conversations between Giménez and González, discussing their passion for heavy music. A tour with Maná brought González to Argentina in 2011, which rekindled discussions of starting a group with Gimenez. The following evening the two had dinner with Flavio, a friend of Giménez’s who both revered, as the three flirted with the idea of forming a power trio. Giménez, however, wanted more firepower and suggested Kisser as a possible second guitarist. González reached out to Kisser via email telling him about the project which was conceived as a gathering of like minds to create metal music which they all enjoyed and appreciated. Kisser responded immediately: “I am the band’s guitar player!”
De La Tierra arrives everywhere on January 14.
