Project description

AATHMA, THE FIFTH PERSEFONE ALBUM

After 15 years, we are ready to hit the studio and release our fifth album.

We expect the album to be released early in 2017 by Vicisolum Productions.

The album will be mixed and mastered by legendary swedish producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Devin Townsend, Amorphis, Arch Enemy, Katatonia,...).

The album cover and artwork will be created by renowned artist Travis Smith who also previously did the Spiritual Migration artwork, and worked with bands like Opeth, Katatonia, Anathema and a lot more...

This is the cover for AATHMA:

Who we are?

Persefone is the first progressive death metal band from the Principality of Andorra, a tiny country located in the Pyrenees, between Spain and France.

The band members are:
+ Marc Martins is our growler
+ Carlos Lozano and Filipe Baldaia our guitar players
+ Moe Espinosa our keyboardist and clean vocalist
+ Toni Mestre our bassist
+ Sergi "Bobby" Verdeguer our drummer.

We have already released four albums, receiving millions of views in our albums on Youtube and a great feedback from our fans all over the world. You can listen some of our older stuff in the video:

We have toured over Europe (three times) and Asia (two times). We are already planning our upcoming European tour that will happen next April 2017.

What do we need the money for

This is the most ambitious Persefone album to this date. The money we receive will be used for:

  • Record and edition: (rent mics, preamps and general equipment that we may not own).

  • Mixing and mastering: For the album to sound perfect, we need a top notch professional like Jens Bogren doing his magic. After mixing the album, he will do the mastering, which is the final process where the album gets the regular volume you usually listen your albums. You can check his work at http://www.fascinationstreet.se.

  • Artwork: Created by Travis Smith. You can check his work at http://www.seempieces.com.

  • Poster, T-shirt and Hoodie designs: All of them created by Victor Garcia from www.darkhorseestudio.com.

About the rewards

We have created several rewards you can choose from. Some of them are regular, some other are incredibly limited, so don't hesitate or those might be gone soon.

European Union shipping and handling is included in the price for the reward. If you don't live in the EU you need to get the WORLDWIDE SHIPPING reward.

If you get clothes (t-shirt or zip hoodie), you will be asked your size once we contact you to confirm your address and data.

We have adjusted the prices to a real minimum to make the album happen and make your rewards get to you.

Once you get a reward, automaticaly you will access to a private mailing list with constant updates about the recording process.

If you are expecting to purchase the album in the future, please, do it now, as you will be helping the band directly and making this album become a reality.

In case we receive more money that we ask for, it will be used for:

  • Granted the items sold during this crowdfunding, a BIG part of the money raised will be used to manufacture the clothing, cds, digipaks, and make them arrive to you. At a first calculation, we haven't arrived yet to the total amount required to pay all the expenses for the album (around 12000€), and for that reason, all the extra money received will be used for that purpose. We will probably publish our economic results later.
  • As we feel that there won't be too much money left after paying all the expenses, we don't think it will be available to rent real orchestras or manufacture old releases vinyls (as stated when the campaign started), so all the money will go to touring purposes.

Q&A(31)

  • Hi, tried to reply to your message regarding mentioning in the credits but unfortunately got a message from "Mailer Daemon" that the delivery of my message failed. Kindly check and advice. Thank you!

    Made by Preasi

    Hi! Just send an e-mail to info@persefone.com That might work. :)

  • Is there any way to still get one of these bundles? Just discovered you guys last week and would love to contribute to getting your next album out!

    Made by Brad Harmon

    Hi Brad!

    Sorry for the late reply! We will add some of the stuff in our shop in a few weeks. www.persefone.com/shop. You will be able to help the band directly by purchasing any material in theer.

    Thanks a lot!

  • Are there going to be women's sizes available for the clothing?

    We don't know yet, it all depend on how many women size are required. Sorry :-/

  • Does the €32 pledge reward come with the Digipak version of the album with bonus tracks?

    Made by Russ

    Nop. Sorry. That reward includes the regular jewel case CD. If you want the digipak and the t-shirt, you should consider getting the rewards that include that material alone (23€+27€). :-)

  • hola!! disculpen! compre el pack de 165 euros pero quisiera tambien tener el digipack y otro disco extra firmados, hay alguna posibilidad de que me los puedan enviar tambien?? o tengo que comprar el digipack y el disco por separado?

    Made by sergio

    Hola! Primero de todo, mil gracias por apoyar el proyecto! Respecto al pack que has comprado, efectivamente viene con el cd standard (jewel case). No pudimos incluir el digipak porque se trata de una edición limitada. Lo que sí podemos hacer es que, una vez acabe la campaña y te pidamos la dirección de envío, nos recuerdes que te interesa el digipak. Si tenemos disponibles, abonando la diferencia de precio de 5€, te cambiaremos el cd standard por el digipak, y lo incluiremos en un único envío junto con todo el resto. Si lo quieres firmado, incluye también la petición junto con la anterior :) Un saludo!

  • Buenas, una preguntilla, me falta vuestro primer disco y este último que cogeré en digipak, ¿habría forma de conseguir vuestro primer disco en esta campaña? Un saludo.

    Made by Despojito

    Desde la campaña solo se puede conseguir el nuevo álbum. De todos modos puedes pedir el álbum en la tienda de la banda en www.persefone.com. un saludo!

  • Buenas! En el pack de 32€ hay posibilidad de que el disco sea digipack aunque sea por algo mas?? o que al menos el CD esté firmados por vosotros?? Gracias!!!

    Hola Adrián! Lamentablemente no podemos reconfigurar los packs mientras dure la campaña. Puesto que son digipaks, y la tirada es limitada a 500 copias, quizá exista la opción en el futuro de hacer dicho cambio, pero no podemos garantizarlo. Una vez acabe la campaña y la discográfica produzca los digipaks, sabremos qué demanda final ha habido y veremos si es posible hacer el cambio. Avísanos de este posible cambio cuando nos pongamos en contacto contigo para pedirnos tu dirección de envío.

    Un saludo!

  • No hay recargos extras si se paga con tarjeta de credito verdad? en Paypal si existe el recargo correspondiente?

    Made by Sergio Shred

    Nop! Solo pagas lo que compras. Las posibles comisiones las pagamos nosotros ;-)

  • en el Pack todo de todo quisiera que se me enviase en lugar de un disco dos discos firmados de AATHMA hay alguna posibilidad de que solo me cobren 165 euros, mas lo del disco extra? o tengo que comprar otra recompensa para obtener el segundo disco?

    Made by Sergio

    Por supuesto! No hay ningún problema, pero nos lo tendrás que recordar cuando llegue el momento y te pidamos los datos de envío. Ten en cuenta que el cd costará probablemente unos 15€ y tendrás que abonar el importe por Paypal antes de que te enviemos el material. Por último, este trato lo hacemos porque la recompensa de TODO DE TODO es de las más grandes que hay. No es aplicable a otras recompensas de menor valor. ;-)

  • Hi there, is England covered in EU shipping or do i need to purchase world wide shipping?

    Made by Henry

    We will asume the Brexit has not happened and the shipping is included hehehehe ;-)

  • If we get the tshirt+cd+download package and live in Canada, do we need to purchase 1 or 2 Worldwide Shipping pledges? Excited to be part of this and support my favourite metal band! :D

    Made by Robert

    Usually for every reward you get that involves shipping, you should buy one Worldwide shipping pledge. Anyway, depending on the number of pledges you are willing to do, we could make some kind of arrangement. Just send us an e-mail (info@persefone.com) and we will talk about it :) If it's just the cd + t-shirt + digital download reward you should go with one WS reward :)

  • Hola! Me podeis indicar la marca de las camisetas y sudadera?para saber bien las medidas y como entallan? Un saludo!

    Made by Rise To Fall HUGO

    Hola! Siempre que hacemos camisetas la marca suele ser Gildan (Heavy Cotton). Si no hay sorpresas con la fábrica, serán de esa marca :)

  • If I were to purchase the vocals/keyboard/guitar rewards, what kind of timeframe do I have to redeem these? I mean, I have interest, but I could see them not being needed some time. Can you share any other details regarding these that we should know?

    Made by Chris Middleton

    From the moment the campaign finishes, and as long as we are not dead, you can ask us to do the recordings hehehe. Only exceptions on tour dates or recording time frames, when we are way too busy to focus properly on the work to be done :)

  • La camiseta y la sudadera pueden ser en otro color distinto al negro??? Quiero pillar ambas pero ya tengo muchas camisetas negras y quería saber si hay alguna posibilidad de ser en otro color. Gracias

    Made by Ayhan

    Nop. Las camisetas son del color que aparece en la imagen. Lo siento :-/

  • Hi guys, if not all of the limited edition vinyls (red and acquamarine) will be sold, will be available in the future?

    Made by Luca

    Yes! The vinyls are limited editions but not exclusive to this campaign. The only thing that we cannot guarantee is where those we'll be available.

  • ¿Alguna oportunidad de conseguir la camiseta y la chaqueta en un futuro si aún os quedasen existencias? Justo poneis esto cuando estoy pelado, jajaja.

    Made by Víctor

    Hola Víctor! Nos sabe muy mal pero no, lo siento :-( Un saludo!

  • When pledging 100€, would you be flexible concerning the details? It says, there are 2CDs included. I'm guessing that means 2x Aathma. Would it also be possible to get 1x Aathma and 1x Spiritual Migration? :)

    Made by Royce_Keen

    Hi Royce!! Of course there's no problem. We only added a second album because we expect you to bring a guest, and it would be weird not to give him a CD. Anyway, it's your decision ;-) Please, once we contact you, remember to tell us. :)

  • How exactly do payments work going from euros to US dollars? I went through PayPal and nothing was mentioned about if we need to pay conversion fees or anything like that.

    Made by Roc

    When paying with Paypal, we pay a commission for your purchase. The only thing that you have to bear in mind is the currency conversion that depends entirely on the day you are purchasing, but usually is around 1€=0,88$

  • Si me podrían mandar una playera hasta México y mm como en cuanto me saldría el envió o como esta el asunto??

    Made by oswaldo

    Hola Oswaldo!! Por supuesto podemos enviar una playera a México. Para ello, además de la recompensa de la camiseta tienes que comprar el Envío Internacional (o Worldwide Shipping) de 8€. Gracias por tu apoyo!!

  • I'm interested on helping the band, and I want to buy the hoodie, but I'm from Mexico and I want to know if there's possible to send it here, and if, how will be that situation.

    Made by Oscar

    Hi Oscar! Of course you will receive what ever you purchase in Mexico. Remember that for Mexico, you have to purchase also the Worldwide Shipping as only the EU is included in the price. As for "how will be that situation", we will send you the stuff near the release date in February 24th, 2017. Thanks for supporting the band and the album project :D

  • Can you add an instrumental or instrumental + clean vocals version of the album - for all the people (like me :-) ) who love your instrumental work and clean singing (but, unfortunately, dislike the growling)?

    Made by Andi

    That's and idea we have thought several times, but the time and the resources are limited to make it happen... Maybe in the future. :)

  • I pledged LIMITED EDITION SIGNED DOWNLOAD Digipak + DIGITAL DOWNLOAD (€ 27), but I live outside Europe, and I whant to know if I need to get worldwide shipping to receive only digital download?

    Made by Douglas

    Yes. You will receive the Digital download a day before the album release. For the Digipak, you will need to get the Worldwide Shipping.

    Thanks for your pledge and for supporting the proyect! :D

  • There is no way to buy only the physical CD?

    Made by Gabriele Azzaro

    Yes, the physical CD reward (22€) includes the digital version, but mostly as a way that you have the album until you receive the physical copy in your mailbox :) Also includes shipping to anywhere in the EU. If you live outside, you will have to get the Worldwide Shipping reward too.

  • I just bought the digipak and the international shipping since I'm in the US. I made the purchases separately, that's how I was supposed to do it right? I couldn't figure out a way to put it on the same ticket.

    Made by cstjohn

    It's supposed to be two different purchases. Once we start preparing the packages we will check all rewards per person. The purchase of worldwide shipping involves anywhere outside EU so if you have two rewards and one of them is the shipping, then that's correct. Thanks for supporting the project! :-)

  • Does the 'All in All' bundle include the limited edition diigipack with the bonus track?

    Made by Guranjan

    No, sorry. Regular CD.

  • Do the "clean/harsh vocals for your album" packages imply vocals for one song or several? Currently in the process of producing an album and am seriously considering these offers!

    Made by Ryan Pease

    Actually is more like a collaboration so we should figure out how much to sing. It can be a whole song but with a regular length (3-5 minutes) in case of being growls/clean vocals. In any case it involves a whole album. :-)

  • Will you be able to pick a size for the hoodie and t-shirts?

    Made by Jesse

    Of course! Once we finish the campaign we will ask you your data to send you the stuff and the size for the clothes you may have purchased :-)

  • Is it possible to pick the All in all bundle and add like 10 euros to get the red vinyl instead of the black? Cheers from the boys in Osthammer! (If you remember us ;) )

    Made by Jim

    Sorry, we can't do that because there's a chance vinyls in that color get sold out in that reward. Anyway, once we finish the campaign, if we haven't sold all the vinyls in red we will be able to arrange something, but of course it's a risky chance.

  • Hola! El CD incluído en la aportación de 62 euros, es formato Digipack y viene firmado? Gracias!!!

    Made by Kiko

    No. En la aportación de 62€ viene el formato standard. Si lo quieres firmado, cuando nos pongamos en contacto contigo para hace el envío solo tienes que comentarlo y te lo firmaremos encantados! Mil gracias por apoyar el proyecto! :D

  • Is Norway covered by the EU shipping, or do I need to get World Wide shipping?

    Made by Einar

    Norway shipping is included :)

  • Is there a way to change your pledge I totally missed that there's a signed copy of the Cd >_<

    Made by Yumi

    Probably you should contact the Verkami administrators to check if you can do it. Thanks for the pledge anyway :D

If you want to know more, Ask a question.
