New Album Lykaia Out Now Via UDR Music

SOEN - the heavy progressive rock group featuring world-renowned drummer Martin Lopez (formerly of AMON AMARTH and OPETH) and the dynamic voice of Joel Ekelöf (WILLOWTREE) - recently released their new full length album, Lykaia, via UDR Music. Today, the band revealed a brand new music video for their heavy, riff-charged progressive opus "Opal", which is available for viewing now on KNAC.COM right HERE.

Lykaia is SOEN's most cohesive, powerful and congruent creative quest yet. The album is available to order now in three formats - digitally, audio CD in digisleeve, and gatefold vinyl.

SOEN will begin a European tour on March 29 in Copenhagen. Visit http://hyperurl.co/SoenTour for individual ticket links for each date. See below for all current tour dates:

For those who have followed the SOEN's career thus far, the new album's concepts of journey and exploration are not new. 2012's Cognitive beat a firmly heavy, progressive metal path. 2014's Tellurian - with its PINK FLOYD explorative spirit and OPETH-like forceful power - saw SOEN start to stride freely into their own control and unique visions. Lykaia sees SOEN remain fascinated with the shadows and the darker edges of our world, with a particular focus on the various thoughts and concepts behind religion and ritualistic, belief-based behaviour in society.

If the first two albums were harder, more technical, angular and perhaps cerebral pieces which demanded sharp focus, Lykaia presents a warmer, rounder, flesh and blood on the bones approach that allows listeners a dual entry to the eight tracks presented. The journey is no less dynamic, continuing the underscore of complex melodies with crushing power and no fear of walking proudly into more ambient spaces to explore the temperature. With Lykaia, however, it is clear that SOEN have never felt more congruent or sure of themselves.

Recorded at Ghost Ward, StudioGröndal and Deep Well in Stockholm, Sweden, with production duties handled by guitarist Marcus Jidell and mixing by Stefan Boman, SOEN kept things as far away from the digital age as possible on Lykaia, embracing warmth and organic recordings as the drive behind the technical working process.

Lykaia Track listing:

  • "Sectarian"
  • "Orison"
  • "Lucidity"
  • "Opal"
  • "Jinn"
  • "Sister"
  • "Stray"
  • "Paragon"
