Tunisian/German metal band Persona unveils new single and video “Alpha”. Check it out below.
The band was founded by lead guitarist Melik Melek Khelifa and Serbian singer/pianist Jelena Dobric in 2012 and dropped their debut “Elusive Reflections” in 2016. A year later, their second album “Metamorphis” followed. Their style fuses modern metal sound with progressive, sometimes extreme metal elements, and even synth effects and classical orchestrations.
Persona now presents a new single “Alpha”, taken from their third studio album, due out 2021, which comes with a captivating music video.
The band comments: “The new Persona has a more modern style. We’ve moved a little bit away from the symphonic metal of our early days to melodic metal/melodic death metal. We welcome two new members in the team: Simon Schröder on drums and Eike Hendrix Nehen on bass, and we are now based in Europe: between Paris and Hannover. Our new single, “Alpha”, evokes the dark side that exists in all of us and which can sometimes become omnipotent.”
“As for the next album, three tracks have already been finalised and seven more are planned,” continues the band. “Some are at the demo stage and others are still in the writing and composition stage. The confinement period has mostly had an effect on the planned concerts; we had quite a few scheduled and were looking forward to going on stage with our new band . As for the composition itself, there hasn’t been too many repercussions”.
Stay tuned for more details.
