Lotus” is the forthcoming new studio album from Sweden-based progressive metal collective, Soen.

Set for release via Silver Lining Music on February 1st, 2019, the nine songs comprising “Lotus” are intoxicating, addictive aural therapies, questioning much of today's darkness while juxtaposing them with moments of great escape and hope.

Listen to the first single, “Rival”, below.

Produced by David Castillo and Inaki Marconi at Ghostward Studios and Studio 6 between July and October 2018, the album marks the first recorded Soen work of new Canadian-born guitarist Cody Ford, whilst the center-point of the album remains those trademark, snap-heavy, progressive Soen riffs. Songs such as “Rival”, “Covenant”, and “Martyrs” are dissertations on modern societies, fraught with poetic, finitely designed confusion and chaos, yet as the name “Lotus” suggests, there is still strength, beauty, and purity to be extracted from what at times seems like an endless cycle of human regression.

“Lotus” will be released on CD, LP, and digital formats. For preorders click here.
