Soen Share Footage Of “Trials” From Upcoming Live Release “Atlantis”

Soen have shared footage of “Trials” from their upcoming live release “Atlantis.” The set, which features an eight-piece orchestra, was filmed at Atlantis Grammofon Studio in Stockholm, Sweden on December 10, 2021 and it will be available on November 18, 2022.

The band commented:

“Freedom is not to be taken for granted. Modern society is built to entertain us and keep us passive, forgetting about the important things in life. We have to be aware of what we really value in our lives. The great masses are taken advantage of by a few wolves of wealth, many of whom we put in power ourselves or pay monthly subscription fees to. ‘Trials‘ talks about the desperation and anger of knowing that society is unfair and that we all contribute to something we’re against just by existing.”

Soen Announce “Live From Atlantis Grammofon Studios” Livestream Concert

Soen will be playing a livestream concert on February 18. The virtual set, which the band are calling “Live From Atlantis Grammofon Studios,” will find them performing with a string quartet and choir. Tickets can be found HERE. Martin Lopez commented:

“This is something we have had in our minds for a very long time but never had the chance to bring to fruition till now… We always felt that our songs have the potential of working under different arrangements and wanted to try something different, with a quartet and a choir; leaving out all the technical aspects and just focusing on the raw emotion of the songs… The postponement of our November dates gave us the opportunity to finally go for it, I’m extremely happy with the outcome and I know our audience will appreciate to see Soen this way.”

Soen Premiere “Deceiver” Video

Soen have premiered a new video for their song “Deceiver.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Imperial.”

Drummer Martin Lopez commented:

“‘Deceiver‘ is about battling whatever demons you have and carrying that constant worry on your shoulders, how it can wear you down and make whatever goals you achieve in your life pointless.”

Keyboardist/guitarist Lars Enok Åhlund continued:

“It’s about standing up against that negativity within you and trying to keep going even if that negative shadow follows you wherever you go.”

Daniele Zed Berretta, who produced the video, added:

“Time in the story goes backwards, to show us what happened before, and who the burnt man really is. Beneath it all, lies the concept of mankind repeating the same mistakes over and over again.”

Soen Premiere “Illusion” Music Video, Postpone European/UK Tour

“‘Illusion‘ is a song about the shared responsibility amongst us if we wish to improve the world, change has to be made by us, you and me…the people. It’s about the frustration of feeling powerless but also the hope in realizing that things can be changed for the better. If we stop criticizing each other and making enemies of ourselves by blindly following the ideas of politicians and their media.”

Soen Premiere “Monarch” Video

Soen have premiered a new video for their new song “Monarch.” This track is from the band’s new album “Imperial,” which will be released on January 29. The group commented:

“‘Monarch‘ is an epic, dynamic song about the traditional attributes of mankind. The belief that showing compassion and kindness is a sign of weakness. The lack of direction and guidance in society is turning younger generations into violent and destructive creatures, because they are living in an age where bullies are kings and the rest are prey.”

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 Premiere “Covenant” Music Video

Soen have premiered a new video for their song “Covenant.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Lotus.”

Martin Lopez (ex-Opeth) said the following:

“Sometimes we choose to believe that we live in a well-adjusted society, but often than not, the truth differs. There are secrets everywhere, concealed carefully behind closed doors. Secrets that hide your despair and feed on your hopelessness, mistreated and misled by the people that are supposed to protect you.

‘Covenant‘ talks about one’s inner strength to fight back: it takes courage for one individual to take a stance, but it is necessary in order to survive. The true hero is not who’s called so by society’s standards, but the one that finds that inner strength and lead others by example.”
