Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

Andorra is one of the smallest nations in the world. Lodged between Spain and France in the middle of the Pyrenees, it still holds enough talented musicians to bring to the world one of the most gifted metal bands of the last few years. If the name sounds familiar, it is because Persefone have made a name for themselves by releasing the album Core in 2006, a juggernaut of an album that still slays my psyche to this day. Its successor Shin-Ken was also a worthy experience in its own right. 2013 brings us Spiritual Migration.

Guest review by

Years ago, in my cousin's dingy basement, moments after our first cigarette, he played me those menacing notes unlike anything I'd heard before: heavy metal. It was glorious, I was hooked for life --on metal, thankfully, not smoking.

I'm a lifelong fan of music most find repulsive (part of its charm, like black licorice), yet it takes a lot to digest a metal album. Even for metalheads, they're intentionally complex, rarely "catchy," and with so many sub-genres to explore, things get overlooked. By chance I gave an album I liked (but moved on from) another go, and am sure glad I did. Nearly two years later it's grown to become, dare I say, my new favorite OF ALL TIME.

Having given it a few more spins, my verdict is the album has some beef to it, but it is long for that amount of beef. Things start to get going from "The Majestic of Gaia" but are still mingled with a lot of superflous parts IMHO. Persefone are amazing musicians nevertheless, well, at least very capable.

Yeah, I guess the extent to which you'd enjoy the album depends on how superfluous you feel certain moments are. I personally think there are maybe two or three tracks below par, but the quality of even those tracks still brought my rating to a 9.

Rating: 9 This album just made it to my 2013 top 10 took a while to get there, and ironically (after I've just changed my vote from 8 to 9) it got up 2 places in the MS top 2013 chart

Rating: 8 This is my first encounter with this band and i listened to their previous records too i think this their best hit because of the vocals and the composition they are superb musicians of course but in previous records vocals are on your nerve and some melody and riffs are not in the right place but this one is really good
