5.0 out of 5 stars Epic as hell 12 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A true, cult epic masterpiece, even better than their debut album. Bathory, with glimpses of 80s American epic metal. No one can bit them. They are alone in this field of the truest of doomy, slow paced, epic sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent epic doom metal 8 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The best in this kind of sound i have heard for many years. Influenced by Bathory and Manowar, they have their own personal style. The songs are very long, but stick in your mind for days.I think it's even better than their first CD.Really worth buying it!

It's ok, but after 30 minutes it does become little boring. Bathory meets Manowar

5.0 out of 5 stars Shining Magisterial Perfection 21 Oct 2013
By Joseph Leap - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Playing a style of music like traditional heavy metal is so often a tricky business, in that the quality and integrity of the artist almost always becomes a subjective questioning of their seriousness of intent. I don't believe there to be another heavy metal band on the planet so dedicated to the mythological ethos that the genre has obsessed itself with since its inception.
The sound of the band is so traditional as to be progressive, as the material on this disc has studied the form of the old masters so reverently that it goes far beyond simple imitation or homage and passes into classic territory of its own. Sweeping, powerful riffs that evoke the semi-folky tendencies of late-period Bathory charge ahead of mournful, keening vocals in such honest and emotional fashion that you can't help but be kept enthralled by every twist and turn that these massive songs decide to take. The entire album retains a wonderfully warm and full sound that greatly compliments the incredibly ambitious subject matter. The band has gone into greater depth than I can, but The White Goddess, as with their debut, borrows heavily from concepts familiar in comparative mythology to display universal constants of the human condition as stemming from the fountainhead of various old faiths and rituals. If their ability did not match this uncompromising ambition then the album might have become an overloaded mess, but this is metal that enjoys itself unabashedly and shamelessly. It's music that genuinely demands to be taken on its own terms.
To think that this relatively young band so easily surpassed the maturity and mastery of their debut is an almost frightening concept, but rest assured, this is an album that no true fan of metal should be without.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic heavy metal masterpiece 12 April 2014
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Three years after they stunned many a doom metal fan with their full-length debut The Golden Bough, Germany's Atlantean Kodex is back with a much-anticipated follow-up. Their new album is titled The White Goddess, and expectations surrounding it were quite high. Fortunately the band has delivered another dark epic that not only lives up to the debut, but surpasses it.

As they did on The Golden Bough, Atlantean Kodex once again brings together classic heavy and doom metal influences into one unforgettable package. The White Goddess is about 2/3 Candlemass, with the remaining third split between Bathory and Tony Martin-era Black Sabbath. The heavy, doomy guitar riffs, somber tones and piercing vocals make The White Goddess seem like the sonic equivalent of an H.P. Lovecraft story - cold, majestic, otherworldly and above all epic.

The album has eight tracks, split (almost) evenly between brief, atmospheric, instrumental numbers and 10-minute epic songs. Not surprisingly, it's those longer songs that stand out, starting with the fast and heavy "Sol Invictus," which may be The White Goddess's best song. "Twelve Stars and an Azure Gown" and "Enthroned in Clouds and Fire" also both captures the spirit of the album as well as gets to the heart of Atlantean Kodex's core sound. Don't write off those brief interludes though, as they maintain the album's atmosphere and bridge the epic songs quite well.

The White Goddess is going to make a lot of "Top 10" lists this year. It's one of the most epic albums you'll hear all year, and one of the rare albums where the classic metal influence is incredibly strong but the music doesn't sound at all retro. If heavy metal - emphasis on heavy - is your thing, especially if you're into bands like Candlemass, Solitude Aeternus, In Solitude, Blood Ceremony and Hell, you owe it to yourself to discover Atlantean Kodex.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get ready to annoy your non-metal friends and family 4 Feb 2014
By Angel R. Surez - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When I first got this album, I was kind of pissed.

I usually don't go for the vocalist's style of epic/power metal (not the insane falsettos, mind you; I just don't care for higher pitched... usually).

A review I read forgot to mention Becker's vocal style and I was almost immediately turned off... until his voice came sailing out, smooth and clear, on Sol Invictus.

I replayed this song - which is nearly 12 minutes long - about three times before moving on to Bilwis.

I ended up annoying people in my house with how often I spun this record. My wife isn't big on metal, but she can hum the chorus to Heresiarch (my personal favorite).

If you want your music beautifully executed, epic, thoughtful, and intricate... without any riffs or melodies overstaying their welcome... do yourself a favor: grab this album.

You won't regret it.
