Persefone unveil One Word

2023-11-28 by Fernando Alves STAFF | 36 Comments
Andorran progressive collective Persefone have unveiled their new single 'One Word' from their upcoming EP Lingua Ignota: Part I, set for release on February 2nd, 2024 via Napalm Records. You can stream it below.





Carlos Lozano comments: "'One Word' embodies all that Lingua Ignota is meant to be both music and lyric wise. With a much more organic and band oriented approach on the writing for this new release, 'One Word' was the first step towards the sound we were trying to define with the new music. A sound where every instrument, word, note, hit, had its place avoiding meaningless passages or transitions. Every sound working to help the next one, and all of them being held together by something bigger."

Tracklist
1. Sounds And Vessels
2. One Word
3. The Equable
4. Lingua Ignota
5. Abyssal Communication

I dug Metanoia a fair bit more than Aathma or Spiritual Migration, so perhaps this band is returning to form. Tentative excitement brewing.

assma and especially spiritual migration are their worst albums, so it makes perfect sense, demon

Damn this came out of nowhere

Instruments sounds better than Metanoia which is a huge relief but I'm not vibing with the new vocalist... so far. I'll give him some time to get used to. Guess I'm so used to Marc Martins that it just feels kinda odd to hear a new voice.

Did not see this coming at all, glad these dudes are staying active. Weird to not wait 4+ years for new stuff though lol I'm accustomed to the schedule.

Ditto Kus, new vocalist is awesome in their own right, but hearing Persefone without Marc... kinda hurts honestly. Grew up with him being THE voice of all things Persefone and it's really setting in that he's gone :^(

Solid song all told.

Nevermind, 'solid' undersells this. Song is excellent.

Yeah this song is pretty good and already better than anything from Metanoia... guess I'm somewhat hyped for them again lol. They are a rollercoaster of a band for sure.

"A sound where every instrument, word, note, hit, had its place avoiding meaningless passages or transitions" sounds like Carlos is aware of how much of a mess Metanoia was? Lol

Nah if Persefone announced every transition and became as linear as possible, they'd still have a chorus of people up in arms up "muh consistency"

The reception to Metanoia being case in point lol

Seems like a fairly solid song. The new vocalist will take some getting used to I feel.

New vocalist is strong but pretty different, I do appreciate the more pitched screams he's bringing to the table and while I definitely grew to appreciate the old cleans they're very on the Yarly side for me so maybe we could get some fresher cleans if he does them at all, but I miss Marc's wild staccato attack w/ spicy rhythms on the harsh vox, it was definitely a very Persefone specific vibe that it brought to their sound that is now missing.

Song itself is fine, I'll prob enjoy new shit as much as most of Metanoia which I enjoy just fine but to me SM and Aathma are their best and most unique records, but I'm a fan of long form shit and not in the he-man prog haters club so many sput folk champion.

Not a hot take for me, dude does a fantastic job!

Me feeling weird is entirely a personal thing, because it's strange as a longtime fan to not hear Marc lay down his trademark vox. Like, in the context of the Truth remaster, Marc was the voice of the band. Now he's gone and it's like, damn...

High hopes for the future though! I will never doubt these cats.

Powerful stuff here i keep thinking of one word, still dreaming so i can tell it. GOJIRA vibes fit them perfectly.

New vocalist is def not bad at all, curious to see what his range will really be on the rest of the EP

'A sound where every instrument, word, note, hit, had its place avoiding meaningless passages or transitions" sounds like Carlos is aware of how much of a mess Metanoia was?'

It sounds more like a reflective stance on their past generally and could just as easily apply to their other material (just because Metanoia was the most recent album, doesn't mean it's a direct ref). Personally this criticism could easily be true of Spiritual Migration, more so than Metanoia.

Also really hoping the Gojira thing is misplaced, lol (making me impatient / I want to check simply to allay such fears)

Spiritual Migration and Aathma are their worst albums? More like their best albums!

Absolutely no Gojira in this, Demon, don't worry lol. Very out of left-field comparison.

Band lost me at Metanoia unfortunately, just not suiting my taste anymore. Nothing about the songwriting of this captivates me, feels so disjointed and the chorus is painfully weak. Aathma and Spiritual Migration easily their peak. New vocalist is a great replacement though, fits like a glove.

I really don't know what they'll have to do to make their songwriting click for some folks, it's as compact as its always been.

On further listens I kinda agree with Tundra, this is decent and a little better than Metanoia but still nothing I'll come back to. It just doesn't do anything special compared to their other material. And the new vocalist actually sounds a bit like the Gojira guy at times (I now see the comparison) which is very distracting, when he like mixes harsh with clean style. You realize how good of a vocalist Marc Martins was now. Still a slight step-up so I hope the rest of the songs are better.

It doesn't happen often, but I am occasionally wrong, as outrageous as that is
