Spanish above, English below

Ixtlan
Axis Mundi


Serpiente del cosmos
desciende al mundo
ofreciendo los frutos
de la verdad
   
Axis mundi,
árbol que transporta

Serpiente de lluvia
¡vacía el pozo,
bebe sabiduría,
da tu ojo!

Ascendiendo y descendiendo
en busca de otra realidad

Coro
Ascensión extática
Caracol Tolteca
Repta y Vuela
¨Descensus ad Inferos¨

Innana, Kali, Coatlicue, Amateratsu & Afrodita

Descenderá
Renacerá

--------------------------------
Ixtlan
Axis mundi


Serpent of the cosmos
descent to the world
offering the fruits
of truth.

Axis mundi,
the tree which transports.

Serpent of the rain
!empty the well,
drink wisdom,
give your eye!

Ascending and descending
searching for the other reality

Chorus
Static Asencion
Toltec snail
Repta* and fly
¨Descensus ad Inferos¨

(she)will descend
(she)will  reborn

*Repta is a word derived from ¨Reptile¨. Reptar in spanish is the act of move of the reptile.

We want a logo man. The one we have is provisional but is more or less the idea we want of it (with Ouroboros). If you could do some ideas I would be very grateful.

Umm... I'm facing my usual problem: Due to my slow internet connection I need a direct downloading link. Got one, Lava?

Cheers!

Hej lava!

I like that song! I was fairly surprised  :wOOt:
And the idea of Ouroboros is good (:
But then again, who does.

Well, I really don´t know how that works but I´m going to ask a friend who knows those kind of things.

It's File Transfer Protocol. Total Commander for example supports it.
or easier way: www.zshare.net
But then again, who does.

After discussing all the options for the logo we finally have one.



Thank you The One for your ideas but they didn't fixed in the ideals of the band (I like one, but the others in the band didn't)

This logo does not seem brutal or metal enough to me... :disgust: It looks psychedelic even.
But well, if the majority picked it... What can I do?

That's because psychedellic and progresive rock is a big influence for the band. Bands like Uriah heep, Eloy, Deep Purple, early Pink floyd, Grobshnitt, etc.

Yup, the logo reminds me of early Pink Floyd. For me, that's always a plus.

Viaje a Ixtlan totally blew me away. Love the drums - at times they've got that beautiful jazzy feel to them. Give your drummer more jazz to listen to and he'll surprise you, just don't allow him to use just basic drumming patterns. Some of the passages are quite inventive. Jazz ftw!

The song flows beautifully and it'd be great if I understood a word of the language, but that's my fault, not yours.

The vocals are too loud (when compared to the other instruments) and lack practice - I was under the impression that the singer knew her stuff, but wasn't used to this kind of thing. She needs to immerse herself more in the songs. Then again, that's something that comes with time. She's definitely on the right track, though.

The guitars could've been a bit louder, but that's the guitarist in my complaining.

The thing that would've made the songs much better for me is different lyrics. Not sure if I'm talking about the same lyrics in English (so I could sing along) or about a different set altogether, with more down-to-earth themes and images... I've just got that nagging something something feeling in the back of my head. Ignore it. It's not a musical flaw, it's just a random thought you shouldn't pay attention to. The most important thing is that, even though the lyrics aren't my cup of tea, I still like them and they don't detract from the music at all. That's a win if I ever so one.

After listening to the songs a few times, I wholeheartedly support the current logo :)

You guys play a blend of 70es prog mixed with metal and the logo highlights the prog elements. As I love prog,
Can't stop the signal.
