Staff review by
"Tezcatl" is the album of the return of the really original band Tenochtitlan. Despite its name, Tenochtitlan is not a band from America but from Russia and if you haven't heard yet anything of their discography, you must know that the band plays some kind of ambient progressive Doom Metal. This is really original and unique, a bit special too that's right, but excellent if you like "crazy" music and history (because of course, the music and lyrics are linked to the big central and south American civilizations). One more time "Tezcatl" confirms all the good words that people use to say about the band, their music is not really easy of access but if you're open minded, this new album is a killer one more time.

A very good album, on par with its predecessors.
I have to admit that, although I love a lot Senmuth's ethno-inspired albums and I sure love Raxa too, it's when all these wonderful musicians unite and each one of them puts his own ideas in a big mix the music really seems to capture the grandeur of the lyrical theme. That's why I love Tenochtitlan so much.
