Atlantean Kodex: The White Goddess (2013)

Refuge Denied

I requested that joanismylover NOT read my review of Atlantean Kodex's previous album before writing this. It didn't seem to make a difference.

This brief statement is to note that Atlantean Kodex's application to be included in the metal reviews on Full Metal Attorney ("FMA") is denied. The band and its "White Goddess" release fall within the Powerwolf Rule and thus do not merit a full review or a rating. See; August 13, 2013.

The metal court does take note of some metal tendencies regarding the album, including its theme and indeed, in a small portion of its music. The concept album however, has been applied to other genres, and while the metal court appreciates song titles with "Fire" "Giant" and "Sword" in them, it does not recognize (or at least appreciate) the overly long nature of said titles and the inclusion of the word "Flaming" in any of them. The metal court also appreciates the use of a tolling bell in one of the songs, and Churchill quotes, but is confused by said quotes in light of the supernatural theme apparently being presented. The metal court notes some heft and doom metal vestiges but they come too infrequently and with too little force to be given a full blown acknowledgement.

Application denied.

No rating per application of the Powerwolf Rule.
