Opeth on steroids. That's all I really have to say. Amazing progressive death metal with epic, long songs. I highly suggest anyone check them out. They have a unique sound, and are a blast to listen to. Check out both their albums. "Core" is three twenty minute songs, and is far from any -core prefix.. Quite amazing.

Ugh, myspace player is being a tool, but I enjoy this stuff when it actually plays.

Good find.

Do you folks like folk?

Nice find, I really like this.

The name sounds familiar too, and not just because it's a bastardised spelling of a character from Greek myth.

And I've never heard of another metal band from Andorra, either.

So...

Core -pronounced Core-eh-... is I forgot the daughter of who but yeah its a cd based off some greek mythology I believe though I think it had spins of its own... and their previous CD is Truth Inside the Shades which is pretty damn good as well -though more straight forward than Core(h) yet still pretty... epic long and what not... check it out as well =D

Daughter of Demeter, goddess of nature or fertility, I think... those two are intervined anyway. On topic - this stuff is quite good... I wonder why this thread didn't get much attention...

You can have credit if you want it. You showed me these guys. Just thought they deserved a thread
#11
I've listened to the songs on myspace a lot since first reading the thread.


I have to get the full length now... I'm really liking them.

The word "epic" is thrown around too much, but, ya know... They are.

Great stuff. Usually I don't like it when albums consist of just a few long songs, but Core is a definite exception. It's very epic.

It sounds like a mixture of Symphony X, Opeth, and Edge of Sanity, with some black metal influence, which in my book is a massive combination of win.
#14
^Indeed.

I want to find a physical copy of either album now. I just know it will be ball-crushingly expensive though.

I'll have to check this out, from all of the above praise. Interesting way to spell the name, for it is usually spelled "Persephone." I like epic songs, so this should be sick. Can't wait to give it a listen tomorrow.

If Broady approves, it must be good.

I was actually about to make a thread on these guys. I heard them on an internet radio a couple months ago and loved it. These guys are too good. They need to get more recognition, therefore me bumping this is well justified.

Core is amazing, been listening to it for the past few days, and it is so much better than I remember.

It's been awhile since I've listened to these guys. I'd trust my Past Self's judgment, but a lot has changed since then. Time to give Core a spin once more, I'm thinking.

Last bump, for some reason I think Slay would like this band if he hasn't already heard them.

BUMP

Anyone else excited for their new album?
I read that they're about half way done recording. I also read in their studio blog that they have some japanese lyrics, and i think maybe spoken word parts in japanese too. I think if anyone can do it and not make it sound gimmicky, it's Persefone, although you never know. Anyone else have any thoughts?
#25
I didn't even know they had a new album coming out!!! This better be as good as Core, because that cd owns so fukking much!

#27
^Thank you, finally someone else that understands the greatness that is Persefone, I've been bumping this like crazy lately, because I decided to give Core another listen, and it really blew my away this time, Seed is just fukking amazing!!! Do you know when the album is due?

Either way, Persefones great.

How exactly is their name pronounced? Purse-phone?


Per as in person, se as in scepter, and fone as in phoney. Hope that helps.

Quote by Stoner0405
I can't wait to get home and check these guys out. From the discussion in here, it sounds like something I'll really like.


They kick ass, seriously check out Core, that album is fukking epic.

Kore is another name for Persephone, they're different aspects of the same goddess. She's the daughter of Demeter(Hecate). Kore and Demeter are grain and fertility goddesses. Persephone is the queen of the underworld and consort to Hades.

Hecate is a crone goddess of death, crossroads, waning moons and dark magic. She's Demeter all winter while she's mourning the loss of her daughter.

^^ No, I'm not aware of who the female singer is, she is quite good though.

And Iwas able to get ahold of Shin-Ken, all in all it's pretty good, theres alot of short instrumentals, which I'm a fan of.
Though I was hoping for there to be one huge epicly long track, but the longest is only 8 minutes, which seems incredibly short when compared to Core
