Persefone comes from Andorra (the little country in the mountains between Spain and France) and this is probably not the first time that you hear something about this band on Metal Storm. Maybe that some of you remember my (old) review about their first release "Truth Inside The Shades" which was, back in 2004, was one of my best discovering and surprises of the year. Finally, the band has the chance to release their second album in 2006 and I will let you know why it was a mistake that nobody here (including me) have tried to talk about this band before today. "Core" is a masterpiece of extreme Progressive Metal, don't miss it if you want to discover that extreme Metal and Progressive music can perfectly be associated.

I have a feeling you'll really enjoy this. I usually don't like this kind of "cheesy" female-fronted symphonic prog-ish kind of stuff, but this album is just pure awesome.

I liked Shin-Ken more, which seems to be against mainstream opinion on here =P

I'm with you on that. The samurai theme was incredibly well executed, especially with the interludes. I just happen to really like this album too.

Yes, it's the best Japanese theme metal album I've heard (I remember Ivan staff picking on before, but I didn't like it), but as you said, "Core" is a really good album too

I think you might be referring to Whispered. I don't remember him picking Persefone.

This album is cheesy and pretentious if you compare with Spiritual Migration.
