It’s been a couple of years since we heard any news from De La Tierra, the South American super group featuring members of Sepultura, Mana, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and A.N.I.M.A.L. Last time we spoke to guitarist Andreas Kisser, they had released their debut, self-titled album but since then, not much really happened. But now, it’s time for some more.
The band hit the studio to work on their sophomore album, which they will release via Sony Records in the near future and we have a new behind-the-scenes video (in Spanish) with drummer Alex Gonzales detailing the process of the new record.
In this new entry of the in-studio webseries, Gonzales describes the direction of the new album, referring to it as a heavier, more energetic sound due to the organic recording process the band decided to take. Variety is also a main element in the new record as the band took inspiration from several rock and metal genres to give a better, more satisfactory product. As the studio is located in Venice Beach, CA, you can see Gonzales strolling through the beach at night to clear his mind after three days of recording session. He explains some of the musical changes on his drumming, including the decision to use a smaller, much simpler drum kit than his usual gear to push his own creativity in the studio.
