An epic heavy/folk metal band Aztra is here again, with their 3rd album "Raices" (which means "Roots", I believe). This album, in my opinion, is significantly better than "Insurgente". Maybe it's not an excellent release, but it's definitely very good for any fan of melodic heavy metal. Check out the track "Lago de Sangre", one of the best songs by Aztra. I can't understand much of the lyrics, but they're apparently based on the folklore of indigenous American people, and they're encouraging to fight for freedom. The vocals on this album are male, and their current singer is a good one.
