Featured in our 10 Spanish bands you need to know! feature earlier this year, Spanish emotional hardcore band VIBORA have released their new heart-wrenching split with Madrid based CROSSED, featuring members of Eros+Massacre, and DESCUBRIENDO A MR.MIME. Born out of the mutual friendship, “PENA” marks an immense and captivating return for one of the most intense, genre blending hardcore bands from Spain. Equal parts muscular ferocity and emotional turmoil, every last moment of this offering proclaims both band’s forward-thinking approach and great songwriting skills.
“Releasing this split goes beyond sharing a piece of plastic.” – says VIBORA.
“This split means a special kind of bond that only bands who has toured with friends can comprehend. Each band wrote the skeleton of two songs and shared one of them with the other band so they could cover it in any way they wanted. Months later the 9 of us got together to the studio to record those 4 songs and listen for the very first time what the other band had done with their song. Pena is what emerged from that process, and you can listen to it today.”
