harveyhardcore At the intersection of ¡Alarma! magazine gore photos, The Manual of Practical Embalming, and an attack of sun stroke on a stepped pyramid climb, Tlazcaltiliztli disgorges a sanguinary masterpiece of sonic skullfuckery. Spread out some plastic sheeting this is gonna get messy. Favorite track: Ohtlatocopailcahualuztli.

Camelus Dromedarius Anything Bigg o))) touches is gold. I don't know of any other Nahuan/Aztec or tribal death-doom bands, but Tzompantli is certainly the premier tribal death-doom band. The production has been noticeably upped and there's more traditional instruments and vocals in this full length than in the previous EP. It's heavy, dark, crunchy, and aggressive, while still having that uncomfortable doom air to it. Staple of death-doom right here. Favorite track: Ohtlatocopailcahualuztli.

about

A Tzompantli, in bygone days, was a rack used to display human skulls, often of enemies or sacrifices, in several Mesoamerican civilizations. In 2022, Tzompantli is a beyond crushing Death Doom war march built on a bedrock of Native / Indigenous themes, rituals and history, illuminating the splendor, brutality and despair within.

Nearly three years after the band’s self-released EP, Tzompantli’s debut full length presents the first smoke-conjured specter to manifest materially. ‘Tlazcaltiliztli’, a ritual ceremony that translates to; ‘nourishing the fire and sun with blood’, is imbued with the spirit of Native inspiration that dwells deep within the heart and soul of the project and is skillfully weaved into a traditional bludgeoning framework of spine-severing savagery and melancholic anguish. On the ritualistic ‘Eltequi’ (to cut the chest open and extract the heart as an offering) the band’s unification of native / folk instrumentation and heaviness becomes one in the same, opening vast new horizons for where this sound can go.

‘Tlazcaltiliztli’ is dedicated, and an offering, to the indigenous peoples, nations & tribes of the North, South, East & West of the American continents. It marks a fearsome and spirited new vision for the Death Metal underground.
