Description/Reviews
Lotus is an album defined by its contrasts. On the one hand, the record has a metal core. The riffing is massive, with an overdriven guitar tone that strongly differentiates it from Lykaia, while drums and bass drive the songs forward. These moments can be straightforward Soen tracks like “Opponent,” but there are moments like a hat-tip to death metal riffing in “Rival” or a proggy ‘awkward headbanging moment’ in “Covenant” that mark Soen as a band with a metal heart. ...
Lotus is also a haunting, fragile album. The album’s softer tracks are no less intense than the heavy material and evoke the work of Pink Floyd (“Lotus”) or Steven Wilson (doing Pink Floyd [“River”]).
