Say “Hola” to Xibalba’s New Song, “Adios”
Xibalba’s new EP is called Diablo, Con Amor… Adios. I assumed that the “con amor” (“with love”) wasn’t sincere, but according to the lyrics to the EP’s just-released closing track, “Adios,” I was apparently mistaken:
“Pardon me, let the ashes settle, the winds take you. With love I say goodbye.
Here is my last stand, a sincere message. Maybe on deaf ears, but remember you and I.
The course and the past, between you and I. The corners, the cities we shared.
Ready to rest in peace with the thought of you. With a smile, hopefully you will remember me too.
Bury me, and let the headstone say
Con Amor, adios.”
See? Xibalba may sound fucking terrifying, but they’re really a bunch of big sentimental softies at heart. Who knew?
