These guys clearly lack the ability of letting me down. (Definitely getting me the white shirt.)

I think I'll start dropping the hint now and try to guilt people into getting me one for my birthday next month.

Unless otherwise stated, assume everything I say is in my opinion.

As the radiant wheel of the sun is growing and father winter leaves Europa behind, the time has come to descend from the Mountain Du-Ku for the second time. In the name of Enki, Sankt Blasius, Sankt Cäcilia and the Seven Gods who decree, we are glad to announce the release date for our second album, titled „THE WHITE GODDESS – A Grammar of Poetic Myth“.

The album will be released on October 8th 2013 in Northern America and on October 4th 2013 in Europa and the rest of the world.

Regarding the amazing job Enrico has done for our first album „The Golden Bough“, it was a no-brainer to keep working together. So we‘re very happy to announce, that once again the album will be released through Cruz del Sur Music.
Furthermore, in order to make the album more easily available for buyers in the USA and Canada, we have decided to sign to 20 Buck Spin Records for the release in Northern America. Dave is an enthusiast for high quality metal off the beaten track and has been working in the past with bands such as Occultation, Pallbearer or Liturgy. We feel in safe hands and so should all fans buying the vinyl and CD version of „The White Goddess“ in the United States and Canada.
And last but not least we are honoured and pleased to announce that the vinyl version for Europe and the rest of the world will be handled by Germany‘s finest, VÁN Records. Since quality is a top priority for us, there was no other choice than Ván Records. Ván is simply doing the best vinyl editions currently available. We‘re quite positive that the vinyl version of „The White Goddess“ will blow your minds. We have something very spectacular up our sleeves.

The official album release party and show will take place on October 5th 2013 in Athens. ATLANTEAN KODEX will perform a full set including of course songs from the new album and all previous releases. We cannot wait to come back to our friends in Greece to celebrate this special event with a titanic spectacle of might. Tsipouro, re mounia!

Ok, in short, here‘s what matters:

Never really had the time to give Atlantean Kodex a serious listen, though from the couple of songs i've heard before passively I liked it quite a bit. Going to listen to their previous album in full right now. Might end up getting both albums

The sunwheels are rolling,
The hills are on fire.
The White Goddess has arrived.

The album is done.

Get prepared for total annihilation.

Via Faceook. And in the comments they posted the release date.

Atlantean Kodex: 4th of October (2013)

I'm pretty damn excited for this, the clips sound awesome.

AOTY, no other way around it. Only Solstice could top it in case they manage to get theirs out by the end of the year.
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

Thats how I see it as well, and if they do manage to get theirs out before years end, then we'll have one hell of a good year for metal.

I forgot all about this and just placed an order for some albums a few days ago DAMN! Ah well. Every second of that sounds god like though
Who are you? The prince of darkness? Don't you have any friends?

this will be good
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.
Listening to it now. Downloaded because I ordered the album directly from Cruz Del Sur just to get one of the 200 patches, and I have no idea when it will get here .
"the waves have now a redder glow..."
Listening to it now...the start of the song Sol Invictus infact...fantastic.
Fantastic fecking album on first listen. Seems a little more power metal-y than their last album, I could be wrong though. Could have done without the Churchill(?) recordings but I guess it does hold historical and cultural significance with respect to the lyrical content of that song. Just thought it was unnecessary.

Definitely one of the best albums I've heard this year. Can't wait to spin it again.
Who are you? The prince of darkness? Don't you have any friends?

I want to wait until I have enough money to buy the album, but thats not gonna happen. Will listen to tonight.

Also, I don't think that there is a better song for jamming out to and having a great fucking time to that A Prophet in the Forest. What a song.

I have a feeling that I am going to end up liking this one slightly more than the Golden Bough. This is awe-inspiring stuff. Listened to it a couple of times till now but it seems to get better on each listen.
I agree, it gets under your skin and melodies and riffs stand out more. It's not a catchy record in the way a power metal album might be, but it's certainly memorable.
Is Sol Invictus not the greatest song ever? The bit aboot 4 minutes in and lasts for most of the song has perfect vocal phrasing. Everytime i'm like, "oh damn.."

The Sunwheels are rolling, the hillsides on fire

Has such beautiful imagery to it. Every fucking time I tell you guys. It is too good for us but i'm thankful to hear it.

Maybe because i'm a big emotional baby, but that entire section always brings a tear to my eyes. It is an incredibly powerful piece of music.
Sol Invictus is my fav song on that album. The whole section that you're talking about is just perfect; the heavy as fukk guitars, the awesome vocals, pounding double bass drums, etc. just works out too well.

AK always leave me wanting more, even when I listen to both albums and the Pnakotic demos, they are too good.
