Aztlan are  a  band  from  Mexico  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  mixture  of  folk,  black  and  melodic  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2021  album  "Revolucion".

  Acoustic  guitars  start  off  the  album  and  also  bring  in  elements  of  Mexican  folk  music  which  also  mixes  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  songs  at  times.  Spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  on  a  few  songs while  a  great  portion  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  the  songs  also  add  in  touches  of  mariachi  music.    

  Pre-Hispanic  folk  instruments  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  while  melodies  are  also  added  into  some  of  the  guitar  riffing.  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  along  with  some  blast  beats  also  being  utilized  when  the  music  speeds  up.

  When  percussion  is  utilized  they  also  give  the  music  more  of  a  shamanistic  and  tribal  feeling  along with  the  more  aggressive  vocals  bringing  in  a  mixture  of  death  metal  growls  and  black  metal  screams.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  most  of  the  music  sticks  to  either  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  direction.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Spanish  and  cover  Aztec,  Mayan  Mythology  and  Mysticism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  form  Aztlan  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  folk,  black  and  melodic  death  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Muerte  Y  Libertad"  "Honor  y  Valor"  and  "Revolucionarios".  8  out  of  10.

Release Date: November 20, 2021

FFO: Cemican, Velomic, Yaotl Mictlan

Location: Aguascalientes, Mexico.

In Mexico there is a command of the dead called Aztlan. They formed in 2018 and mixes Mexican folk music with the sound of Metal. The concept of the band is to expose the Mexican culture from ancient times like Aztecs and Mayan to the present day with the sound of Mariachi and Prehispanic Music through a world full of mysticism. The image of the band evokes the traditional "Day of the Dead".
