Within Destruction Premiere “Toxic” Music Video

Within Destruction have premiered a new video for their new song “Toxic.” This track is from the band’s new album “Lotus,” which will be released on September 30. The group commented:

“‘Toxic‘, while on the surface it might not appear so, is a track with one of our most well-thought-out choruses. We believe it’s one of the strongest and resonant songs of the LP. For this reason, we have also decided to portray this track with a music video, which was recorded in Bangkok, Thailand during our Asian tour in July 2022. The lyrical concept depicts by the mental and physical struggle induced throughout unhealthy relationships and the subconscious desire to endure the suffering for the sole sake of companionship, even if a toxic one.”

Soen Premiere “Covenant” Music Video

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.”

“‘Lotus‘ is a summoning of like-minded people that have reached that turning point in their lives where they have had enough. Enough of meaningless and shallow societies and their expected standards. Only once you have liberated yourself from these fake ideals and leave all of that behind, one can be truly free.”

Soen (Ex-Opeth) To Release New Album “Lotus” In February

Soen (ex-Opeth) have announced that their new album “Lotus” will be released on February 1. The band recorded the effort at Ghostward Studios and Studio 6 with producers David Castillo and Iñaki Marconi. It will be their first to feature guitarist Cody Ford and pre-orders will launch on November 16.

Vocalist Joel Ekelöf commented:

“Ultimately, ‘Lotus‘ is about rising from whatever darkness, or dark places, you might find yourself. And its inspiration comes from a deep motivation to not just settle for the situation you might find yourself in.

‘Lotus‘ is about changing life — both your own and your surroundings for which we must all take responsibility — and make them better rather than letting darkness pacify you and take you down.”
