Album stream. Awesome, and probably better than Spiritual Migration. Paul Masvidal of Cynic really works well on "Living Waves."
"Prison Skin" video
14+ minute teaser, which is extensive clips from every track?
despite a good chunk already there, I'm still looking forward to this.
New Persefone album coming on February 24, 2017. Campaign, etc.
Sounds sweet. Spiritual Migration was surprisingly really good, so I have pretty high hopes for this one as well.
Almost four years have passed since Persefone unleashed to their
highly acclaimed album “Spiritual Migration”. An impressive album that
took both the press and the listeners by storm (1,2 million clicks on
Youtube!). When the calendar shows February 24, 2017 it´s finally time
to experience the evolution of Persefone with their new album “Aathma”!
The album will contain 10 new songs and it´s mixed and mastered by Jens
Bogren at Fascination Street. The artwork is once again created by
“Aathma” will for sure set the standard for progressive metal in 2017!
Persefone´s own words about “Aathma”:
"It’s only once in every three, four years that we can express
ourselves with freedom as musicians, by making music under the name of
Persefone. Each album is a picture of our lives and the way we're
experiencing this journey. It’s the first time we feel there’s someone
out there, waiting for the album and we are doing our best to make
honest music that shows the spirit and essence of the band. It’s not
about releasing albums. It’s all about the music."
“Aathma” will be released on CD, 12” double vinyl, a limited digipak edition and of course as digital download.
Persefone is releasing a crowd-funding campaign in conjunction with
these news, in order to finance the album, and keep people informed and
on-track towards the big date in 2017. The crowd-funding campaign can be

PERSEFONE European tour 2017:
Persefone is the new rising star on the European progressive melodeath
scene. Having released 4 critically acclaimed albums, and about to
deliver the 5th album of extreme technical skills and fantastic
songwriting, this band has climbed from being an unknown band from
Andorra to claiming headliner status in Europe.
previously toured the continent, as support for Obituary and Leprous,
until they - in 2015 - co-headlined alongside Loch Vostok. The 2015 tour
proved to the band, that it was high time, to do their own headliner
tour, and with the new album in the luggage, they are more ready than
ever, to shred the stages to a pulp.
As support, Persefone is
bringing along the most interesting band to emerge from Greece for many
years: The progressive sensation Poem. The band has released 2 albums,
and 2016's "Skein Syndrome" is a tour de force in how to combine Tool,
Pain Of Salvation and Opeth to perfection.
Poem toured all over Europe in the spring of 2016, as support for mighty Amorphis, with loads of new followers.
