Andorran progressive metallers PERSEFONE have released their dark new single ‘In Lak’Ech’ (feat. Tim Charles from Ne Obliviscares) ahead of their EU tour, kicking off tonight in Lyon. The single will be available to purchase digitally and also on 12″ vinyl. Listen to ‘In Lak’Ech’ here: https://persefone1.bandcamp.com or watch the lyric video below.
Miguel Moe Espinosa (keys/clean vocals) previously stated on the song:
“There’s been a lot of stuff going on lately in the Persefone camp. Tours, festivals, new releases… And from time to time we like to get ourselves involved in new musical experiences, other than playing live. So after our tour in Japan we came back full of ideas and we jumped into the studio and started working on what would become “In Lak’Ech”. The conceptual idea of the unity of the human, being the whole Universe, got us really inspired and it took us only two days to have the song ready. Then we contacted Logan Mader to make the mixing and Tim Charles from Ne Obliviscaris for him to participate in the song. As smooth as the song writing, both the mix, the violin and vocal part worked perfectly with the mood of the moment, and we are really glad to have finished this song that we will play on our upcoming tours!”
“In Lak’Ech” is release today, on March 22nd, as a 12″ vinyl single, as well as through streaming, worldwide through ViciSolum Productions.

Almost four years have passed since PERSEFONE unleashed their highly-acclaimed album Spiritual Migration. An impressive tour-de-force of insanely great musicianship that took both the press and the listeners by storm (1.5 million views on YouTube).
With a new guitarist and a new drummer PERSEFONE have now taken their music to the next level with the release of their brand-new album Aathma (ViciSolum Records) in 2017. Aathma was mixed and mastered by legendary producer Jens Bogren in his Fascination Street Studios (Sweden). The album includes the epic 20-minute title-track, with guest appearances from vocalist Merethe Soltvedt and Leprous guitarist Øystein Landsverk. Aathma also features Cynic’s Paul Masvidal, appearing on the song ‘Living Waves’, as well as on ‘An Inﬁnitesimal Spark’. The amazing cover art is created by none other than Travis Smith, who shouldn’t need further introduction.
