Andorran metal outfit Persefone are a band unto themselves.
With a sound that can be loosely described as progressive rock meets melodic death metal, Persefone have forged their name crafted in their sonic diversity.
2024, and in particular the band’s new EP Lingua Ignota – set for release on February 2 – ushers in a new era for the band, with vocal duties being assumed by Daniel Rodriguez Flys. His DNA is all over the new EP, which features five songs covering the entire spectrum of Persefone’s music, with subtle nods at their future. Drummer Bobby joined HEAVY to talk more about the EP and Persefone’s future.
“Man, I just want to release the new music,” he smiled. “We’ve been working so much into this new release lately that I just want to release it and people to start listening to it. We finished the recording in August, so it’s been a while now. And since we are about to go on tour in ten days, I really want people to listen to the new songs before that because we are playing the whole EP live and I want them to at least know the songs a little bit.”
In the full interview, Bobby talks more about the EP and what they were going for musically, describes the band’s sonic structure, introduces their new vocalist and what he brings to the band, runs through each of the five EP tracks individually and explains where they fit in with the recording, how Lingua Ignota differs musically to previous release metanoia, what’s next for the band and more.
