We know how much you have been waiting for this, but if you still are unaware of the greatness of “The White Goddess”, have a quick tour of the first press comments:
“The production is great and atmospheric, the musicians are top notch, the lyrics are perhaps the best written the genre has seen in a while and it’s very epic, perhaps too much. This is still the best Epic Metal album of 2013, I, without certain restraints, welcome the new reigning kings to their throne.” METAL OBSERVER 9/10
“Atlantean Kodex deliver with ‘The White Goddess’ something special. EPIC is the word! With album tracks mostly clocking in 10 minutes or more, it takes you on a musical journey. Progressive edges (Fates Warning) combined with Manowar/Bathory grandeur! This is an album for a long time to enjoy! RATING: 9 stars (out of maximum 10 stars).” PROGRESSIVE XGROOVES RADIO – 9/10
“An epic elegy, a call to battle! […] I sucked up every note of it, I enjoyed every melody. Albums like this do not come often anymore …” ROCK OVERDOSE, 95/100
Indeed the band has progressed much since their debut effort „The Golden Bough“. The sound is more mature, more dramatic, more bombastic. Everything on the album spells HUGE in capital letters. While the key coordinates old Manowar (Ross the Boss-era), Bathory (Twilight-era) and obscure US Metal (Fates Warning, Cirith Ungol, Warlord…) are still dominant, the band has manage to explore new ground with „The White Goddess“. This is one of the few albums, which will leave noone cold.
