Atlantean Kodex  


These Germans have unleashed quite the epic album in 2010's The Golden Bough, their first proper full-length album following a couple of limited-run EPs. Flying in the face of all that is modern metal, Bough harkens back to the glory days of epic 80's metal, with a style that is grandiose, majestic, and powerful, straddling a line between doom and a more traditional 80's metal sound. Shades of early Fates Warning and Warlord abound, the majesty of Manowar shines through on occasion, and when they slow down to true doom pace (which is often), they are reminiscient of bands like While Heaven Wept. This style isn't necessarily in vogue these days (though they no doubt fare better in their home country and Europe than, say, America), but this is one of the more accomplished acts in this genre to emerge in some time.
