RHESTUS came to fruition back in 1993 and since then have only managed to release one other full length album and a couple of demos and E.P’s. Does this mean the band is lazy or something? Not at all actually, what it means that everything they do is done with a lot of care and a conscious decision has been made to only release something when it is truly ready, a trait many modern bands could do well to learn about…
I wasn’t sure what to expect, due to the key lineup changes, but in the end Codex Atlanticus is yet another exceptional album from Serenity, that continues with the ultra melodic, somewhat theatrical style they began on Death & Legacy
The thing is it’s been so long it’s a part of me now; I think it’s part of all of us. It’s not so much what’s great about being in the band more so of being terrified of it stopping. It’s like a drug.
