The new album from Latin metal band De La Tierra — aptly named De La Tierra III — includes their song "Depredadores," and adds to the band's mission of becoming one of the most important Latin American metal groups in the world, all while pushing a positive message.
"To return with this new album, which is an album full of a lot of rhythm, a lot of energy, a lot of adrenaline, a lot of passion, it is an album that I feel makes us imagine ourselves, see the masses, see the people jumping, moving," Alex González, the band's drummer, told EFE.
De La Tierra is a band formed by four musicians passionate about Latin metal — Andrés Giménez (A.N.I.M.A.L.), Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Alex González (Maná) and Harold Hopkins Miranda (PUYA).
According to Gonzalez, De La Tierra III is an album with rhythms influenced by the different styles of heavy rock and metal found across the world.
The drummer also highlighted that Kisser sings in Portuguese while Gimenez sings in Spanish, allowing them to explore new musical outcomes via language.
"The truth is that I was, as with all the albums, but especially with this one, I was very happy, because I believe that (we) needed to create and release something new," said the artist, who is also a songwriter and drummer with Maná.
With De La Tierra III, the Latin metal band wants to continue generating social awareness through its lyrics. According to EFE, they want to show their audience "how bad things are" while also "trying to say: there is light at the end of the tunnel, always trying to leave a positive message."
