Persefone

With the release of Truth Inside The Shades, Persefone puts the tiny country of Andorra on the metal map, as they are must certainly be the first band from that nation to release an album on an established label. Truth is a surprisingly well-developed slice of semi-progressive melodic death metal (Opeth is frequently mentioned as a comparison, though more as a rough reference point rather than a true soundalike) with some impressive lead guitar work and a good deal of songwriting breadth, especially impressive for a debut album from a young band. A solid album from a band that's surely on the rise.
