AZTEC METAL GROUP CEMICAN RELEASE NEW ALBUM, IN OHTLI TEOYOHTICA IN MIQUIZTLI

AZTEC METAL GROUP CEMICAN RELEASE NEW ALBUM, IN OHTLI TEOYOHTICA IN MIQUIZTLI, TODAY
*MEXICAN SEXTET TO PERFORM AT WACKEN OPEN AIR, KNOTFEST FEETS FORCE FEST***
The Guadalajara, Mexico-based Aztec folk metal group CEMICAN – whose recent performances at France’s Hellfest and Germany’s Wacken Open Air received rave reviews – release their third album (and M-Theory Audio debut), “In Ohtli Teoyohtica In Miquiztli” (“the mystical path of the dead”) today.
In recent months, two of the 12 songs on the album – the title of which refers to fallen warriors who travel to Mictlan, the underworld in Aztec mythology – have received airplay on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal – “Guerreros De Cemican,” the music video for which can be seen at this location, and “La Que Baja De Las Estrellas” (“the one that comes down from the stars”), a video for which can be seen here.
The music of CEMICAN – whose name means “the duality of life and death” in the Aztecan language of Nahuatl (spoken by 2 million people in Central Mexico) – incorporates elements of the legends, mysticism and ideologies of ancient Mexican culture. Featuring striking cover artwork designed by Jesús Lhysta (Rotted Artist / Extreme Metal Artworks), “In Ohtli Teoyohtica In Miquiztli” is now available for pre-order on CD and limited-edition black vinyl at this location www.m-theoryaudio.com/store. As with CEMICAN’s previous releases, the album sees the group combine the modern instrumentation of a metal band with traditional pre-Hispanic instruments.
“In Ohtli Teoyohtica In Miquiztli” track listing:
1) Guerreros de Cemican
2) La Que Baja De Las Estrellas
3) Itlach In Mictlantecuhtli
4) Cuando Los Muertos Suspiran (Mihcailhuitl)
5) Ritual
6) Luna Desmembrada
7) Atemaxaque
8) El Respiro De La Tierra (Tlatecuhtli)
9) Diosa De Todos Los Dioses
10) Tzitzimime (Danza De Los Huesos)
11) Azteca Soy
12) Donde Nace El Viento (Ehecatl)
After independently releasing two albums and performing alongside some of metal’s top names (Amon Amarth, Korpiklaani, Ensiferum, Eluveitie, etc.) in their native Mexico, CEMICAN experienced a breakout year in 2018. In addition to “Guerreros de Cemican” receiving regular airplay on Liquid Metal, the six-piece group was invited to perform at the Paris edition of the Download Festival and Germany’s Wacken Open Air, as well as Force Fest – described by Revolver as “Mexico’s premier open-air festival” – and Hell & Heaven Fest in their home country.  The band’s momentum continued to build in early 2019, when they were invited to perform at two European winter festivals – France’s Cernunnos Pagan Fest and Germany’s Wacken Winter Nights.
Earlier this month, CEMICAN performed at Wacken for the second year in a row. The group was subsequently invited to perform at next year’s Wacken as well, which is believed to be the first time ever that a band will perform at the storied German metal festival for three consecutive years.
CEMICAN will also perform alongside Slipknot, Behemoth, Carcass and others at the inaugural Knotfest Meets Force Fest festival, which takes place in the group’s home country on Nov. 30.
