Thought I'd release the You Tube video of "Cortez Defeats Molloch" before offering the song. It was fun putting this video together and yet the message of the song is very striking. The battle was beyond Europeans and a Meso American culture, it was a battle initiated by a Spanish conquistador against a demon and finally assisted by the indigenous peoples. Cortez - saint or sinner, Hero or heel - it doesn't matter because in hindsight the ritualistic cannibalism and human sacrifice ended and the people were given true spiritual freedom.
Here's an informative and enlighteing article on Hernando Cortez in Crisis Magazine http://www.crisismagazine.com/2012/the-magnificence-of-hernan-cortes
