Latin American metal group De La Tierra has announced plans to release second studio album, “II,” on November 18th via Sony Music Latin. Fans can now pre-order the record right here.
De La Tierra is comprised of some of Latin America’s most talented metal musicians, including Brazilian guitarist Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Argentine singer/guitarist Andres Gimenez (A.N.I.M.A.L.), Argentine bassist Sr. Flavio (Los Fabulosos Cadillacs) and Cuban/Mexican drummer Alex Gonzalez (Maná).
Today, De La Tierra releases the upcoming record’s first new song, “Puro,” which can be streamed below.
“Our first album was self-produced,” says drummer Alex Gonzalez. “This second album we had the awesome opportunity, honor and privilege to work with Ross Robinson. He produced and really captured and brought out the best of all of us. It was very positive and challenging, but at the same time he made us work hard and give 100% all the time. He really helped us to find our sound and voice.”
The band’s sophomore album was recorded with Robinson in Los Angeles. “All 4 of us listen to so much music and different styles that all of that information brings a lot to the table once we start writing music,” Gonzalez adds. “It’s so awesome that a band like DLT, that is a heavy/metal band, can bring so many different styles and sounds of heavy metal to our music, but at the same time we include rhythms, melodies and lyrics from Latin America.”
