Soen have unleashed the single and video for the title track of their new album “Memorial”, which is set for release on September 1 via Silver Lining Music. A meeting of melodic magnitude with face-crushingly heavy guitars and driving rhythms, the new single “Memorial” has a ferocious groove, underlying the weighty subject of war and evocative vocals of Joel Ekelöf. Watch the video below.

It is a song to remind us of the victims of the power games that our so-called leaders play,” comments founding member and drummer Martin Lopez.

“It’s about PTSD” explains vocalist and co-founding member Joel Ekelöf,and the effect war has on people like you and me that are sent to kill and die and have to pay that price for the rest of their lives.”

“Memorial” will be available as a Deluxe CD, 12” Vinyl Album in Black and color variants, digital formats and special D2C products and bundles. For pre-orders, go HERE.

The new album has a potent drive and sees the band channel the ills of current society with a crisp, riff heavy ferocity but at the same time still showcasing Soen’s unique blend of progression, aggression, and beauty. “Memorial” is drenched in melody with face-crushing guitars and rhythms from start to finish.

Album opener ‘Sincere’ starts off with relentless propulsion, whilst the sheer power of the title track is enriched with a solid groove, underlying the weighty tones and evocative vocals of Joel Ekelöf. Finishing with the beautiful, tragic, Pink Floyd-esque ballad ‘Vitals’, “Memorial” is arguably the band finding their best stride yet.

Soen have been building up to this moment for years and now they’re here with “Memorial,” which is an inspiring modern hard rock classic. Soen are completed by Lars Enok Åhlund (Keyboards and Guitar), Oleksii ‘Zlatoyar’ Kobel (Bass) and Cody Ford (Lead Guitar) and are set to play at this year’s Download Festival (GB) on Sunday 11th June, before embarking on the Memorial 2023 Tour in Europe this September.
