Download MP3. Persefone.
Progressive Death Persefone (AND). Band Name Persefone (AND). Released date 22 July 2009.
Any experienced Persefone fan first listening to Shin-Ken will notice right away that not much has changed since the album’s 2006 predecessor, Core. The band still maintains their progressive influenced melodic death metal style while playing around with calming passages and winding instrumentals. Like Core, Shin-Ken is a concept album revolving around the Japanese samurai and their devotion to bushido (Japanese for honor ), life on the battlefield, and the experience of death. Gone are the accompanying female vocals that were integral to the storyline of Core. Instead, Persefone experiments.

Shin-Ken is another great album by Persefone and the fact that the band opted to make their songs shorter and more compact compared to the songs on Core is not a bad idea at all. I find Shin-Ken recommendable for fans of harder edged progressive metal with extreme metal vocals. Shin-Ken' - Persefone (7/10). The third album by the Andorran progressive metallers Persefone shows a steep development in the band's presentation
