EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Persefone Keep The Proggy Goodness Coming With Brand New Single “In Lak’Ech”

Andorran prog lords Persefone's latest album, Aathma, was one of my favourite albums of 2017. With that record, the band struck a perfect balance between the complex compositions of Dream Theater and the more ethereal odysseys of later day Cynic, to deliver what I honestly believe to be one of the greatest examples of contemporary progressive metal. While I'm sure the album will continue to reward for years to come, it was a long wait between their breakthrough record Spiritual Migration (2013) and this magnum opus. Thankfully, the band's fans needn't wait to hear more from the band this time around, as we are proud to present the lyric video for their brand new single "In Lak'Ech"—a noticeably darker track, featuring Tim Charles from Ne Obliviscaris.

98 – That 2008 Shit

A bunch of news and content! I'm just going to list it. Kiss's Gene Simmons talking about his $2000 box set, Super Deluxe roasting Taylor Swift via Limp Bizkit, Machines of Man, Machine Head, Linkin Park's tribute show to Chester (and our picks for vocalist), Sutrah, the Sacred Son artwork controversy, and the new Winds of Plague single. Also how ridiculous this Friday's releases have been. Then we do a deep segment on producer Jens Bogren, including his work on Ihsahn, Leprous, Vildhjarta, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Devin Townsend, VOLA and more. Finally, cool people time. The cool horror/sci-fi game Echo, Kingsman: The Gold Circle, mother!, Hannu Rajaniemi's The Causal Angel, Sunless Skies and more.  Enjoy!
