Codex Alimentarius


Codex Alimentarius

We want to officially welcome @Jonny Walker to our Ranks!!

We have been fairly quiet recently while we look for a drummer but we have been working behind the scenes on the album material and we have some updates to come over the next few months.

Rising from the Southwest, Codex Alimentarius formed in 2009 and within a short time had gained a loyal fan base. Codex have taken a hold of the local music scene and earned high regard from venues, labels and the media; nationally and internationally since hitting the live circuit in September 2010.

Codex originally formed as a four piece with former vocalist Stephen Bending, Stan Kemble and Tim Wright on guitars and Andrew Dicker on bass – Bringing Elliott Alderman-Broom in as a third guitarist and Frank Dennis on drums in April 2011, finishing the line-up. Together they set about crafting an Individual style fusing melodic and brutal metal and after headline sets and sell out shows at venues in their local area alongside the release of their debut EP ‘The Infinite Growth Paradigm Vs Finite Resources’; The bands epic masterpiece ‘Baptised’ from their debut release was made available for the internationally acclaimed Xbox and PS3 game ‘Rock Band 3’ in February 2012 – as well as touring with death metal legends Vader and Krisiun in June 2011, co-headling the ‘Crushing The South Tour’ with Furyborn in September 2011, along with supporting: Sonic Syndicate (2010), Malefice (2011), Saturnian (2011), The Defiled (2011), Evile (2012), Romeo Must Die (2012), Revolker (2012), Ted Maul (2012), Bleed From Within (2013), Enemy Reign (2013) and Demonic Ressurection (2014). Codex have also had the honour of playing festivals such as: Home Town Heroes (2011), The Real Devon Rocks (2011), The Zombie Ball, Exeter (2011), The Real Devon Rocks 2 (2012), The Zombie Ball, Exeter (2013), Apres Noir Festival (2014), Frankfest (2015), Incineration Festival (2015), Hard N Heavy Festival (2015) & Bloodstock (2015).

Currently working on their new album release, Codex are bringing a new age of more bone crushing, brutal style of metal driven by a groove/thrash/classical Infusion to the underground with great ovation, leaving the crowd hungry for more! As shown on the ‘From Hell To Oblivion UK Tour 2013’ with American death metallers ‘Enemy Reign’ and the debut music video ‘The Hand of Apophis | Part 1 – Trajectory’ – Codex promises a powerful and energetic stage performance with a no-holds-barred attitude, backed up by a hunger to strive forwards with their eyes always set on dominating the UK and International Metal scene.

“And so… Off the back of unleashing the lyric video for ‘Baptised’ and a live recording of ‘Arise’ on you all, we are now proud to announce that we will be releasing ‘The Infinite Growth Paradigm vs Finite Resources (Mk II)’ on 1st June 2017. Seven years after we first released this, our debut EP, we hope you enjoy this re-fired and re-forged version!
