Atlantean Kodex – Germany
Almost nothing certain is known about this enigmatic outfit from the northern forests of the kingdom of Bavaria. Formed around 2005/2006 by Trummer and Kreuzer, the band quickly managed to become the centre of the new european epic metal movement. Their disturbing “Pnakotic demos”, released in 2007, gained them much praise and a fanatic following.
In 2010 the band released their debut album “The Golden Bough”, which won “Album of the Month”-spots in magazines around the world, for instance Rock Hard Magazine Germany, Heavy Magazine Germany or Metal Hammer Greece. The album was praised by journalists and fans all over the world as one of the best Epic Metal albums ever.
Rooted deeply in the sound of Bathory, old Manowar, Solstice and Manilla Road, Atlantean Kodex deliver an unbelievably heavy mixture of dramatic hymns, harmonic twin guitars and fantastic melodies, telling tales of lost worlds and ages past. With one foot the past and the other in the present, Atlantean Kodex bridge the gap between the elder world and now, between dream and reality. What the future holds, even the wisest cannot say…
