oraclevuhThe band was founded in July 2015 because of the desire to form a folk metal band in Guatemala. The band was founded under the name Efestus, by the end of that year, the band almost disintegrated since most of the members left. In 2016 they decided to change the name to OracleVuh, because they wanted a name that had more relation with the Guatemalan folk stories and at the same time they would identify their origins. The name is composed of two words “Oracle” and “ Vuh”, which comes from the sacred book of the Mayan culture “Popol Vuh”.The remaining members started working on the first full length album “Preludio” which was released in 2016.
