Biography

Hailing from Andorra, we now bring you one of the most exciting new acts on the ever-growing metal scene; Persefone.

The band was formed in 2003 and after just a year, the first album, “Truth Inside the Shades”, was recorded. Carlos Lozano (Guitar and vocals), Miguel Espinosa (Keyboards and vocals), Jordi Gorgues (guitar) and Toni Mestre (bass) parting from Death metal, through progressive passages and even acoustics, demonstrated to have a great musicality. Bands like Opeth, Borknagar, Arcturus, Symphony X or Cacophony are all a reference for this album.

Teaming up with Danish-based Intromental Management, the CD was released in 2004 in Russia/Baltic States by CD-Maximum, Japan by Soundholic and the rest of the world by Adipocere. The album was soon distributed and great feedback was received from the press. Persefone created their own little niche, through the original, complex, melodic and at times even aggressive metal that floated out of the speakers!

After the release, the band played a lot of local shows and began working on the second CD, “Core”, with two new members in the band: Aleix Dorca as drummer/producer and Marc Martins as vocalist. “Core” is an intense crusade in which the band relates Persephone’s story, the Greek goddess from the Underworld. A concept tribute divided on three epic passages where the band defies “Truth Inside the Shades”. The music of Persefone has reached a new level of complexity, originality, virtuosity, melody and aggressiveness. Mixed and produced by Aleix Dorca and mastered in Sweden by Peter in de Betou (engineer of top bands like Dimmu Borgir, Enslaved, Dark Tranquility and Katatonia), “Core” shows a new, huge and modern sound.

    Awesome Band! Spiritual Migration is a great album! Lyrics are perfect!

    imo there's absolutely nothing wrong with the production of Spiritual Migration.. it's spot on (modern, crystal clear, and powerfully in your face). but I agree that their previous stuff is flawed production-wise. anyways, these guys are the real deal! SM is doubtlessly a masterpiece.

    "Spiritual Migration" is on the good way to become my number one album of this year!

    Sucks. He was a pretty good drummer. I love this band though -- wish more people would listen I bet they'd like it.

    Do you know any similar band to suggest me please ? Persefone perfectly do speed and technical progressive death stuff with melodic parts and I wish there were more bands just like them.

    Persefone needs to get a good producer, some of these choices are downright irritatingly bad...like the enar constant clipping/peaking on Shin-Ken.

    Hmm, on analyzing the waveforms NoSoup4you22 is correct. Must be a muddy mixing or something, because something sounds off. Still gotta buy the remaster, the music on it is top notch, though.

    Core was their best album... And even on the original mix, there wasn't any clipping. Compression/limiting yeah, like any loud metal production, but no clipping. I hate the djent shit they did on the new one, though some of the melodies are good.

    If you can't understand the vocals, someone did a bad job. However, the good news: Core has been remastered, and now only has slight clipping on rare parts! It also sounds vastly better mixed to me. http://vicisolumrecords.bandcamp.com/album/core-2014

    I'll add that Core has some good riffs and a more classic (melodometal) guitar tone.
