Exclusive: Atlantean Kodex Premiere New Song, “Sol Invictus”
Self-described as falling somewhere between Twilight of the Gods-era Bathory, early Ross The Boss-era Manowar and other classic US bands like Fates Warning, Cirith Ungol and Warlord, Atlantean Kodex will release their new record, The White Goddess (A Grammar Of Poetic Myth), on October 1 in North America and October 4 in Europe. In anticipation, the band has teamed with Revolver to premiere album track ”Sol Invictus.” Check it out below, as well as the video edit of the song, and let us know what you think in the comments.
Guitarist Manuel Trummer says of the song, “‘Sol Invictus’ takes you on a trip through the dark underbelly of European folklore to a realm of fertility cults, fire-worship, and corn-demons, older than Bethlehem and Babylon, older than dreaming Sumer and mankind itself. Now grab a beer, turn the volume to 11, and bang your head like a man possessed.”
