“Aurum” is their second full-length studio-album, originally released on June 20th. 2007 via Whirlwind Records.
Pantokrator‘s long- awaited album “Incarnate” has been released earlier this year, Jan. 21th. via Rottweiler Records & Soundmass.. “Incarnate” … was a long journey – 7 years – of writing, composing, editing and recording. It is an album that in itself is something all new, yet at the same time has the intensity of their heavy-hitter “Aurum” [2007, Whirlwind Records] and the “Heritage of Blod” [2003, Rivel Records].Musically, this Swedish band is now heavier but more melodic, brutal but catchy, dark but progressive. With skill and talent, “Incarnate” mixes thrashy riffs with a mantle of death metal and a heart of doom. It is moody extreme metal cloaked in death metal – their best and most diverse album. Add to that top-notch production and a final mix by Jani Stefanovic and you get Pantokrator at the top of their game audibly, lyrically and visibly.
Pantokrator‘s ”Incarnate” has the heaviness of the earth, the speed of the wind, the depth of the waters and destroys like fire!”

In December 2013, we conducted an interview with Pantokrator. About the new album the band had the following to say:
For the last album ‘Aurum’ we went to an expensive studio, but this time we recorded everything ourselves. That gave us more time to work on the details, which we felt were sometimes missing on Aurum. Musically we think it’s both heavier but still more melodic than Aurum. On Aurum we had more thrash-influences but this time we are more focused on the melodies and the mood. It’s in our opinion a better and more diverse album.
