This is our path through time and devotion, among living and dead, beyond the barriers of physical distance and far away from musical or spiritual stagnation.

Two Chilean Demons: Juan Pablo Núñez (guitar & vocals) and Alvaro Lillo (bass & vocals), once again, manifest and complete their endeavor in all Music & Lyrics for a new XALPEN album & their second full-length:
“The Curse of Kwányep” (K´wányep Chenen)

* Drums on track 09 ("Moon-Woman") performed and recorded by E.Forcas.
"With full devotion and dark convictions here is our channel and journey to the womb of absolute nothingness, here is the drink of Death and no food for the worldly ego. Our work is a memorial to the past times and tradition of the ancestors (forgotten by many). Our art is an offering and sacrifice for the hungry gods of the underworld. Our word is true and our shadow burns eternally in the transgressor black fire of the abyss. This is also our walk across the fields of the living and our respect and honor for the realms of the dead.
To the undead magik of the Ancient Shamans and for the glory of the Dark Gods of Chaos!"
