On February 1st 2019, Swedish-based progressive metal group Soen will release their 4th album, “Lotus”, via Silver Lining Music. The pre-orders are available since November 16th, so make sure you grab a copy while you can!
The album marks the first recorded Soen work of new Canadian-born guitarist Cody Ford. Whilst the centre-point of the album remains those trademark, snap-heavy, progressive Soen riffs.
“The world right now is undeniably a very strange, tense place,” says Lopez. “I think the songs clearly reflect that, but they also reflect that we must now be stronger than ever in challenging confronting and dealing with the pandemonium life throws at us all.”
The lavish Lotus artwork features nothing other than an enigmatic and engaging copper-reflective pyramid. It’s offering elements of the 6th sense and greater consciousness before gate-folding open to reveal a girl touched by the copper aura.
“We each have our own personal ideas as to what it means,” says Lopez. “But we’d much rather discuss what others think, what our audience think, what the media thinks. I think it’s extremely important that we all communicate with each other. And take the time to fully conceive our own meanings and interactions with life and creativity.”
