About time I opened a thread for this band. If I read their recent Facebook statement correctly, they will finally be releasing their third studio album in September. They posted the following snippet on their YouTube channel:


Kodex is by now probably my second favourite band after Maiden. Their two albums, The Golden Bough (2010) and The White Goddess (2013) are among the best metal albums ever recorded. This band is not for everyone though, and a lot of people complain about the slow pacing, gradual development and long meandering of their tracks. This is Epic Doom Metal at its finest, combining the very best influences of Bathory, early Manowar and others and bringing it to a sort of perfection that hardly any other artist ever manages to. However, be warned: progressive metal this is not, and if you are easily bored with music or need frequent time or rhythm changes in your music, you should look elsewhere.

To all others, join the Iron Battalion and heed to the Atlantean Kodex!

Maybe Doom is a genre I don't understand (certainly one I don't intentionally seek out) but this isn't Doom to me at all, epic or no. Great music, much better without the singer, for me.
I get ye RE rhythm changes. I tried The Golden Bough and indeed I got bored. Maybe a album for another day but the song you shared above is class.

I, too, love the band. Which is not surprising since @Perun and I are basically the same person. I hope there's a decently extensive tour, should this album finally arise.

I love this band as well, have ever since I got their The Pnakotic Demos back in 07. Their first two full lenghts are incredible and I fully expect anything new to be amazing as well. Awesome band.

By the way, the new album will be released on 13. September. There will be a release event on 7. September in Hamburg, and guess who's going:

New song.


There is no way this will not be the album of the year. Even if the rest consisted of 60 minutes of children rapping over scratching on tinfoil, it could not suck so hard that it wouldn't be absorbed by the majestic awesomeness of this. From this point on, all new music will be irrelevant.

They've definitely evolved their sound, moving a little way away from doom-inspired riffs and integrating something a bit more power, which is a good thing, but still keeping their own sound. This is...really fucking good. I'm really excited for the album now.
