The Albion Codex are a band from West Yorkshire England, with Paul Wale vocals, electric/acoustic guitar, Mick Jones electric/acoustic guitar, guitar synth, Lee Whitaker bass, death growls, Tom "Dexta" Hey drums, percussion, vocals.
After all knowing each other from the local metal scene, and feeling dispondant and creatively frustrated with old acquaintances and bands, decided to get together mid August 2012 to create music that each member could put their own individual taste and style into.
Taking musical influences from Doom, Progressive, NWOBHM, Death metal and Acid Folk, and lyrical influences from Paganism, Nature, Folklore and the stories of Robert E Howard, the members bonded in music and friendship instantly.
Studio booked, amps up full, strings tuned low, riffs invoked and songs composed, The Albion Codex was born.
Hail to Olde Albion, hail to the riff, hail The Albion Codex.
