Today I was checking out the album “The Golden Bough” by a band called Atlantean Kodex.
I can not make up my mind about what type of band AK is trying to be. There are elements in theme and vocal style of a power metal band, but the music never gets moving fast enough for something like that.
It reminds me more of a doom-metal band with a prog/power metal singer. I have listened to this album several times from beginning to end over the last few weeks and I just can not get really excited about it. Someone had mentioned it on the prog-power forum (always a good place to find new bands to check out) and I thought the band name was rather cool so I checked it out.
It does not suck…but it really never gets past average for me. I am only keeping one track from the whole disc on my mp3 player.
If you really like both the doom and power metal genres of music you might be able to get into this but otherwise I would buy something else instead.
The track I kept on my player was:
