BIOGRAPHY

In Lak’ech Ala K’in

" Sotz' are the victorious war cry of the Maya, a civilization often erroneously categorized as lost, as they survive in our collective memories through History, Legend, and Myth.  Armed with the sacrificial blades of extreme metal and Mesoamerican folklore, under the ever-watchful eyes of Kukulkan himself, they bring about a message of Hope in the jaws of Despair, of a safe haven of spiritual balance inside our hearts and minds, with tales of creation and destruction, death and rebirth, as Kisin is to The Great Serpent and the Great Serpent is to Kisin. 

They are the eye of the Jaguar. The sons of Tikal. The bards of Popol Vuh. Tzak' Sotz'! "

by Ricardo Pereira (Moonshade)

"This album constantly floods us with devastating riffs coupled with an unbridled fury that is beyond thrill for the vast majority of its ten tracks that constantly keep the listener on a thrilling journey."

"The LP ends with "Eye of Baalam" and "Prospects of Pakal", two pieces of pure energy, where we finally have the certainty that the death metal of Sotz ', which accompanied us in this adventure in the world of the Mayan, it was a wonderful discovery of musicians skilled in creating not only persuasive landscapes through music, but also expressive melodies worthy of being able to represent a civilization that still has a lot to say to us."
