SOEN: Anticipated Lotus Full-Length From Swedish Metal Unit Out NOW And Streaming Via Silver Lining Music
 “Lotus is another terrific sequence from SOEN. Each of the four tenured players gives his all to make it as unfalteringly eloquent and forceful as possible…” — Metal InjectionStream / Share SOEN’s Lotus At THIS LOCATION  Today marks the official release of Lotus, the anticipated new full-length from Swedish metal unitSOEN. Delivering nine intoxicating hymns questioning much of today’s darkness while juxtaposing them with moments of great escape and hope, 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. Metal Injection hails a record that’s, “unfalteringly eloquent and forceful,” Heavy Music HQ callsLotus, “engaging and engrossing,” while Ghost Cult gushes, “Heavy yet melodic, filled with light and shade, Lotus retains the core tenets that made their previous albums good and then builds upon them to great effect. An album that combines beauty and warmth with a slew of satisfying riffs.”   Stream the record in its entirety at Spotify at THIS LOCATION or YouTubeHERE.  SOEN’s Lotus is now NOW on CD, LP, and digital formats. For orders go to THIS LOCATION.  And if you missed it, view the band’s previously-released videos for “Martyrs” at the title track at THIS LOCATION.SOEN will bring Lotus to European stages this spring on a near-three-week headlining tour from March 12th through April 6th with special guests, Denmark’s Ghost Iris and Finland’s Wheel.

Each of the four tenured players gives his all to make it as unfalteringly eloquent and forceful as possible…” — Metal Injection “…it’s among SOEN‘s most atmospheric and clean-sounding material and comes with a lengthy guitar solo that you can truly call ‘epic.’ If you’re unfamiliar with SOEN, fans of Tool and Porcupine Tree should check this out.” — BrooklynVegan on “Lotus”“…undoubtedly the strongest album in SOEN‘s career and can be also interpreted as a testimony ofMartin Lopez perseverance and determination to tread his own path.” — Sonic Perspectives“…an engaging and engrossing listen. SOEN have met or exceeded expectations with Lotus, which could be their strongest album to-date.” — Heavy Music HQSOEN push progressive metal to new sonic heights…” — Captured Howls“…the most complete SOEN record to date… A solid combination of ethereal and direct moments that will have you thinking about it after it’s over.” — Dead Rhetoric “Lotus is a complete album because it balances SOEN‘s contrasts and unifies them into a sound that is more than the sum of its parts. The peaks and valleys are not exclusive to each other; they define each other. Compositions snap into place, and SOEN delivers song after excellent song.” — Angry Metal Guy“…a monumental work that has captured a great band at the absolute height of their powers.” — Bloody Good MusicSOEN are really in a category of their own, juxtaposing darkness and escape in each almighty breath. My only criticism of this marvelous new album is that some of the tracks aren’t unique enough, but it’s an album you’ll enjoy beginning to end.” — Get Ready To RockSOEN clearly establishes themselves as key players in the palatable metal scene while simultaneously providing enough of a progressive edge to deserve the praise of those who demand a little more from their music.” — Toilet Ov Hell“Lotus is another step forward in SOEN‘s evolution as a band, emphasizing on deeper lyrical themes and atmosphere, while reinforcing expert vocal delivery and catchy songwriting.” — Metal WaniHeavy yet melodic, filled with light and shadeLotus retains the core tenets that made their previous albums good and then builds upon them to great effect.
