Greece’s Battleroar will release their fifth album, Codex Epicus, later this month. Like its title implies, on Codex Epicus Battleroar put an epic spin on power metal, running through seven songs plus an intro. The songs on Codex Epicus are driven largely by a strong vocal performance and galloping riffs, though the group are also able to execute slower songs with an equal amount of precision. For a band that’s approaching the two decade mark in their career, Codex Epicus shows no sign of slowing down. If anything, it shows the band still evolving as they write new music.
Codex Epicus will be released on June 15 by Cruz Del Sur. Stream it in full below.
