Atlas of Metal: Andorra

Andorra is a tiny European country between Spain and France, with a population of only 84,000. It's unsurprising there are only three metal bands listed from the country on Metal Archives, and only two of them are active.

Nami is a progressive metal band. It's hard to tell what they sound like from the few videos I've found, but they seem to have a mainstream-friendly sound, with some edge to it, bearing a vague resemblance to Opeth. I couldn't find any complete songs on Youtube--in fact, this video is crap, and the others are very short live cuts, so it's hard to tell whether we should care about them.

Persefone is another progressive metal band, who have a definite melo-death base to their progressive tendencies, complete with keyboards and some Dream Theater-isms. I would interested in hearing more from this band.
