Even more massive guitars and even more passionate melodies - the Swedish band Soen around the otherworldly drummer Martin Lopez (ex- Amon Amarth , ex- Opeth ) and the terrific singer Joel Ekelöf ( Willowtree ) perfects their alternative-prog-metal from album to album on all levels. With their fourth longplayer "Lotus", the all-star band has once again dived into emotionally charged sound realms in 2019 and invited their fans to a breathtaking journey through fascinating soundscapes. The new work of the prog metal supergroup will be released in spring 2021. Afterwards they will go
"The performance of headliner Soen had almost epic features and was something of the best in 2019 in terms of music, precision in playing, stage presence and the well-tuned light show." With these words, the event portal Schwarzeliste.ch commented on the band's last performance in Pratteln. Two years later, the Swedes are once again guests at Z7. For those who have followed Soen's career so far, the concept of change and exploring new sound territories is nothing new. The 2012 debut "Cognitive" forged a path that could be described as heavy progressive metal. On "Tellurian" (2014) with its mix of exploratory Pink Floyd-like spirit and powerful parts a la Opeth, Soen showed their own strengths and vision for the first time. Their third longplayer "Lykaia" (2017) was finally a trip into earthier regions of music and at the same time their most conclusive output so far. With "Lotus" (2019), the all-star band remained true to their fascination with the shadowy and dark sides of our world. "We are lucky that we can explore and formulate things with our music that we would otherwise find very difficult to express," says band founder Martin Lopez. And singer Joel Ekelöf adds, "'Lotus' is about getting out of thedarkness in difficult times. No matter how bad your situation is, try to change your life and the lives of those around you for the better and never let it get you down." Soen has spent the last few months once again digging deep into the murky depths of her emotions. The result will be released in the first months of the coming year. On April 14, they will present the new songs live to Swiss fans for the first time in our country.
