Multi-instrumentalist Martin Martinez announce the first solo album

MARTIN MARTINEZ “TEQUIPACHOLIZTLI” - Invincible Records/DeFox Records 2023

DeFox Records and Invincible Records are proudly to announce the first solo album of Martin Martinez, master and philosopher of ancient, primordial pre-hispanic music from Mexico.

The product it's entitled "Tequipacholiztli". The Album contains ten songs inspired by the ancient and mysterious pre-hispanic mood.

The release will be published in February 20th - 2023. Digital album will be available on every worldwide webstores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Tidal, Shazam, YouTube Music and many more.

This time, the homonymous multi-instrumentalist presents us with a way of making music with pre-Hispanic instruments combined with Death Metal voices. The result is a mythical, mysterious and cavernous sound of a possible and hypothetical primordial Mexico.

Master creator of Metal bands such as XIPE TOTEC, MIQUIAN, YATROGENY and CONSOLAMENTUM, Martin brings us his first solo album "Tequipacholiztli" (anguish) translated from Nahuatl, the language spoken by the ancient Mexicas, which makes a kind of remembrance of the ancient songs existentialists called “Icnocuicatl” or songs of affliction. These small reflections about the life and death binomial capture the imagination of the creator of Tequipacholiztli, writing to his worldview little phrases of affliction and sorrow. The philosophical and lyrical influence of Cioran and Schopenhauer, as well as the music of Jorge Reyes and Antonio Zepeda are present, in a syncretistic project with pre-Columbian sounds, death metal and a lot of grief...
