Salt Lake City-based blackened horde YAOTL MICTLAN have confirmed a swift but brutal tour of Mexico this August, taking their warrior anthems to the lands which their ancestors and lyrical concepts hail. From August 16th through the 19th, with two shows in the country’s capital of Mexico City scheduled, the quartet will storm through the country with their blazing formula of thrash/death-influenced black metal based on Mayan folklore and history.

Translating to “warriors from the land of the dead,” YAOTL MICTLAN was formed in 1998, immediately catching the attention of Brujeria vocalist Juan Brujo, who later produced the band’s first demo, A Batalla Vamos. Their debut Guerreros de la Tierra de los Muertos was released by American Line Productions in 2006, and following that the band signed with international kingpin Candlelight Records, who unleashed their more dynamic sophomore LP Dentro del Mantro Gris de Chaac in 2010.
