𝐋𝐘𝐑𝐈𝐂𝐒:
Gathering
All the hidden keys
Turning rocks to diamonds

I?ll lead you in
I will make it is easy now
Turn unrest to comfort

By my side
You may close your eyes
And I?ll be your guidance

Come suffering
Let me be your medicine
Lay your hopes on me

We?re hunting blind and aimless
Embracing gods to feel their light
We fell from grace right into the unknown

I believe
That in the end we could be something more
But every trace of who we are is gone
Still I hope we could be the ones, be the ones.

And I see
How we surrender for the endless greed
And we do nothing to prevent its spear
To keep piercing into our hearts, our hearts

Open eyes
Unveil the disguise
Of the friendly imposter

Who lures you in
Wearing a warmhearted grin
To leech off your vein

We are done
Feeding the machine
Losing trail of our only home

We?re hunting blind and aimless
Embracing gods to feel their light
We fell from hope right into the unknown

A day will come
A time to deal with what we did
And our pride will crumble down on us

Someday we?ll scream
To raise our voice for our belief
Together we can change the fate of all

I believe
That in the end we could be something more
But every trace of who we are is gone
Still I hope we could be the ones, be the ones

And I see
How we surrender for the endless greed
And we do nothing to prevent its spear
To keep piercing into our hearts, our hearts,
Our hearts

The provocative, imperious and engaging Swedish-based metal group SOEN unveil their fifth album, IMPERIAL, via Silver Lining Music on January 29th 2021. Founder members Joel Ekel÷f (vocals) and Martin Lopez (drums), along with Lars Enok ┼hlund (keyboards and guitar), Oleksii ?Zlatoyar? Kobel (bass) and Cody Ford (lead guitar) have never shied away from challenging our perceptions of life and humanity, and IMPERIAL continues SOEN?s unique journey through the psyche of our species and the conundrum of our times. Eight crisp, sharp, and supremely constructed songs spanning frustration, reflection and hope, IMPERIAL is the most direct fierce? and dynamic release of SOEN?s journey, one which continues to be deeply therapeutic for both the group?s dedicated followers and the band themselves.

?In my life I try to be as real as possible, but I think that the music, and nature, of SOEN are the only place that I really, really feel I can be myself,? explains Martin Lopez ?When you?re home, doing music, writing lyrics, that is where you really get to express yourself without any judgement and with total freedom.?

Produced by I˝aki Marconi and the band, IMPERIAL was mixed and mastered by Kane Churko, who has worked with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne and Bob Dylan, giving songs such as ?Illusion?, ?Modesty? and the epic closer ?Fortune? a dimension and richness which will reach yet more ears and minds. The sheer power and poetry of SOEN?s dynamics are more completely executed and honed than ever before, something which is perversely a product of the COVID-19 pandemic.

?It has obviously been a crazy, terrible thing for everyone, and for us as a band it has been really frustrating not being able to play shows,? says Martin Lopez ?but also it has given us a clear window of opportunity to realise this album completely. We were able to spend 12 hours a day for many months bringing IMPERIAL to the place we truly wanted, mainly working on the groove and flow of the album.?

?We will always be a band that has the old will to fight for freedom and all the important things in life, the people, the underdog,? furthers Lopez ?You have to take on the big question marks such as what the fuck are we doing with our lives and where?s the empathy. Why do we keep on testing and crushing ourselves as a species??

SOEN are an undeniable cypher for all which swirls around us, something which will continue to set them apart from their peers for years to come, and IMPERIAL is the latest potent, unmissable commentary from their journey.
