Soen, the Swedish  progressive metal group featuring drummer Martin Lopez (formerly of Amon Amarth and Opeth) and the powerful voice of Joel Ekelöf (Willowtree), is about to release their third  album, ‘Lykaia,  on February 1st. The recording took place at Ghost Ward, Studio Gröndahl and Deep Well in Stockholm, Sweden with the new band member,  guitarist  Marcus Jidell behind the production.

“‘Lykaia’  is a music journey within the shadows and the darker edges of our world, with a particular focus on the various thoughts and concepts behind religion”. The band released a sample of their work, a single called ‘Sectarian’, indicating how this “dark music trip” will sound like.
