Lyrically, NOCTEM talks about Mesoamerican cultures, with special attention to the Maya. On this album the band expresses its opposition to the Spanish barbarity, strongly criticizing the colonization and the imposition of Christianity in the lands of the yukata. Again NOCTEM not hesitate to speak about the cult of blood, the low value of human life and the decrepitude of the mortal soul.
