This enigmatic outfit from the northern forests of the kingdom of Bavaria was formed around 2005/2006 by Trummer and Kreuzer. The band quickly managed to become the centre of the new european epic metal movement. Their disturbing “Pnakotic demos”, released in 2007, gained them much praise and a fanatic following. In 2010 the band released their debut album "The Golden Bough", which won "Album of the Month"-spots in magazines around the world, for instance Rock Hard Magazine Germany, Heavy Magazine Germany or Metal Hammer Greece. In 2013, the second album “The White Goddess” was again very well received by fans and the press alike, was praised all over the world as one of the best Epic Metal albums ever. After playing shows and festivals in many different countries across Europe and taking a creative break, the Kodex returned in 2019 with “The Course of Empire”, which received an overwhelming response in print and online magazines:
