Atlantis Ascendant is the fifth studio album by English metal band BAL-SAGOTH. It was released in April 2001 through Nuclear Blast. This was the first Bal-Sagoth album to be recorded (albeit only partially) with digital recording technology.

The album’s primary story and lyrical concept as written by vocalist-lyricist Byron Roberts centres on the exploits of a fictional nineteenth century British archaeologist and adventurer named Professor Caleb Blackthorne III, who has dedicated his life to the field of antediluvian anthropology and to seeking out evidence as to the true nature of humanity’s origin. As with many protagonists in the Lovecraftian fashion, his investigations lead to madness and death.

Bal-Sagoth are a symphonic black metal band from Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, formed in 1989. Originally an epic symphonic black metal band with strong death metal elements, vocalist/lyricist Byron Roberts took the name ‘Bal-Sagoth’ from the Robert E. Howard short story “The Gods of Bal-Sagoth”. Their first demo was recorded in 1993, and Bal-Sagoth have since released three albums on Cacophonous Records, and three with Nuclear Blast.

1. The Epsilon Exordium
2. Atlantis Ascendant
