ATLANTEAN KODEX's "The Golden Bough" is one of the most anticipated releases for 2010. The German band has been able to built a strong and devoted fan-base within the Metal Underground movement with a series of limited edition releases, and the participation to the most valuable festivals (Keep It True, Hammer of Doom, Up the Hammers) of the same kind. They're now ready to make a step forward, even improving the Magick and the Purity of their Metal offer with "The Golden Bough", already praised by the German press as "â€žMaybe one of the best metal albums from Germany ever" (Rock Hard) and â€žOne of the best albums by a German Metal Band ever ... Album of the Year" (15/15 - musikreviews.de). With everything that should make a Metal release worth its name (extreme heaviness, melodies and killer solos/vocals), with references to early Manowar, Bathory and Solstice, "The Golden Bough" will not leave any Metal fan unmoved, becoming a serious candidate to the best-of-the-year-lists.
