Prog metal fans can expect a great 2019, and evidence of that can already be found in one of the first releases of the year – Soen’s new album Lotus.
Formed in Sweden in 2004, Soen released their debut album Cognitive in 2012, to critic and fans’ acclaim. Since then two more albums followed, and they matured their sound considerably, absorbing the influences of Tool, Dream Theater, Death and alternative metal and coming up with a unique and captivating sound. Their new effort Lotus is the culmination of years of intense touring and composing, and it is guaranteed to please the most demanding of fans, while exposing them to a new audience. While their previous albums were complimented on, Lotus is long awaited, and made many lists of “albums to look forward to in the new year”.
Drummer Martin Lopez caught up with Sonic Perspectives author and interviewer Rodrigo Altaf and they discussed the new album, Martin’s upbringing in Sweden and Uruguay, and what can the fans expect of the band in the new year.
