Portuguese death metal act Sotz’ has unveiled a brand new single entitled “The Return Of Kukulkan”.
Produced by Afonso Aguiar (Titanforged Productions / Dark Oath), “The Return Of Kukulkan” is the first single extracted from the band’s upcoming self-released debut album “Popol Vuh”, scheduled for release in the last trimester of 2020.
The Popol Vuh is a foundation sacred narrative of the Kʼicheʼ people from long before the Spanish conquest of Mexico. It includes the Mayan creation myth, the exploits of the Hero Twins Hunahpú and Xbalanqué, and a chronicle of the Kʼicheʼ people.
The name “Popol Vuh” translates as “Book of the Community”, “Book of Counsel”, or more literally as “Book of the People”. It was originally preserved through oral tradition until approximately 1550, when it was recorded in writing.
