German Underground Metal Titans ATLANTEAN KODEX have returned from obscurity  to redefine Epic  Metal  with  their  long-awaited  second  album,  titled  „The White Goddess  – A grammar  of poetic  myth“. The album  will be released  on  October  4th  2013  on CD in Europe, and pre-orders are OPEN NOW!! Click on the button below to buy your copy through our online store:

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.

AN IMPORTANT NOTICE for all the customers who pre-ordered the ATLANTEAN KODEX‘s DOUBLE GATEFOLD LP

We regret to inform that the delivery of the ATLANTEAN KODEX’s DOUBLE GATEFOLD LP is delayed.

Initially scheduled for a 7th of October street date, we just got today unexpected news from the pressing plant, informing us that the delivery has been postponed to the first week of November.
The pressing plant claims that they were waiting for a confirmation on our side (requested on the 27th of Sept) regarding the approval of the graphic files.
The problem is that we never received such a notice.

Since in the meantime a “big production” has come in, our release was postponed.
We would even have accepted a 7-day delay or similar as part of our “responsibility” (the lack of communication?), but we really feel that one month delay is too much.

We really expected to start shipments around the 10th of October, and it is with great disappointment and scorn that we are giving this communication to all the customers and the fans out there.

All the files and audio masters were delivered to the pressing plant on the first week of September (together with the advanced payment!), and the test pressing was approved on the 24th of September.

Besides, our communications with the pressing plant have always been extremely fast in order to have the release out at the expected time.
Moreover, prior to this unfortunate event, we already shipped part (cds/shirts) of those orders which also included the vinyl, without charging any extra; we did that with the pure intention of providing a good service to the people who trusted Cruz Del Sur Music placing their pre-orders.

Therefore, rest assured that as soon as the records reach our offices, they will go directly from the shipping boxes into your mail boxes.

We feel very sorry for all the customers who have been and still are so trustful and kind ordering their copy on pre-order.

We don’t have enough words to apologize, it’s a big disillusion for us in the first place, and something which is not bound to happen again.
