Atlantean Kodex signed to the Italian label Cruz del Sur Music. In 2010, the debut album The Golden Bough was released.

In the annual polls of the online communities of Sacred Metal and Rock Hard, The Golden Bough won in the category “Album of the Year”.

The second album The White Goddess was published on 4 October 2013 and received excellent reviews again in the press.[3][4][5] The album entered the German charts at #65.[6]
