tzolk'ins third album's concept is the aural implementation of aztec mythology's deities. besides tonatiuh as the title, the gods chosen by the collaboration are: quetzalcoatl (the god of arts, crafts and knowledge, mictlantecuhtli (god of the dead and the king of the lowest and northernmost section of the underworld), tezcatlipoca (a central deity, associated with a wide range of concepts including the night sky, hurricanes, obsidian, enmity, discord, governance, divination, temptation, sorcery, beauty, war and strife), tlazolteotl (a goddess of filth, sin, vice, and sexual misdeeds), xipe totec ('our lord the flayed one', a life-death-rebirth deity), nanahuatzin ('the sun god', represented as a man emerging from a fire, originally interpreted as an illustration of cannibalism). the idea that people were servants of the gods was a theme that ran through aztec mythology. humans had the responsibility of keeping the gods fed - otherwise, disaster could strike at any time. the food of the gods was a precious substance found in human blood. the need to satisfy the gods, especially the sun god, gave rise to a related theme: human sacrifice.
