Germany's Atlantean Kodex has been hard at work over recent months writing a sophomore full-length album and follow-up to "The Golden Bough," which at press time remains untitled. Stated guitarist Manuel Trummer this week on the album's progress:
"The new album is slowly starting to take shape. So far we have around 30 minutes of all new, unreleased material. There won't be any demo songs or older songs from previous releases on the album. Regarding the general direction, you can expect the same sound and atmosphere as on The Golden Bough. There won't be any change in style whatsoever. T

All regressive, all Atlantean Kodex."
The new album is planned for release sometime in late 2012 or early 2013.
