Progressive Metal monster Persefone released their highly-acclaimed fifth album, 'Aathma', on February 24th and today the second video from the opus is premiered here on MetalTalk.

The song is 'Living Waves', and it features a very special guest appearance from the legendary Paul Masvidal (Cynic, ex Death). Here it is...

'Aathma' is the follow-up to Persefone's previous album, 'Spiritual Migration', an impressive album that has clocked up almost 1.4million YouTube views so far.

The album contains ten songs and the warm and lively mix and mastering is by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street. The artwork is once again created by Travis Smith.


Persefone told us about 'Aathma':

"It's only once in every three, four years that we can express ourselves with freedom as musicians, by making music under the name of Persefone.

"Each album is a picture of our lives and the way we're experiencing this journey. It's the first time we feel there's someone out there, waiting for the album and we are doing our best to make honest music that shows the spirit and essence of the band.

"It's not about releasing albums. It's all about the music."

And here's the first video from the 'Aathma' album, 'Prison Skin'.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
