ATLANTEAN KODEX “The Golden Bough”: best Epic Metal album of the year?

This is the questions that many of you, and even us at Cruz del Sur Music, are keeping on asking. From the land of Bavaria, best known to the world for its tasty beers and commercial Oktoberfests, ATLANTEAN KODEX hails and kill, keeping it in an epic, Manowar-esque fashion.

Some of the early press responses have been just overwhelming :

“There is no metal truer than this. The Golden Bough thunders and shimmers like a storm of everything True Metal is supposed to be. The riffs are worthy of Quorthon at his best, the melodies are beyond haunting, and the production is heavy as a fucking iron warhammer.(…) Not only the best metal music of the year, but one of the most significant and deep albums ever made”

“Get ready for one of the most chilling, hair raising and just plain brilliant metal releases of the year!!!! I’m honestly not over exaggerating either, if you have not gotten your full dose of melodic, epic, and ultimately heavy quite yet then prepare to be flattened to being almost transparent by the Atlantean Kodex!!!!(…) This thing actually gives me goosebumps, I mean honest tingling and a “deer in the headlights” expression on my face as my epidermis puckers in places. The whole album is so astounding and completely intense, this will humble many for sure.”
