[News] Soen unveil the official video for the track “Unbreakable” from upcoming album and reveal tour dates

Swedish Progressive Metal band Soen have announced the release of their new album “Memorial,” which will be coming out September 01, 2023 via Silver Lining Music. The band unveiled the official video for the track “Unbreakable,” stream it through the YouTube player below:

The new single is a statement of intent of what’s to come from the forthcoming album and sees the band take a much heavier approach but still retain their melodic sensibilities.

Founding member and drummer Martin Lopez comments: “‘Unbreakable’ is a song about how you limit yourself as a human, by blindly believing in something.” Vocalist and co-founding member Joel Ekelöf continues: “Politicians and the media paint everything as black or white, entitling you to try to destroy your opponent instead of trying to find common ground. It’s key to be humble and open to different viewpoints to keep growing, ‘Unbreakable’ feels like a marriage between classic-metal and Soen.

The new album has a potent drive and sees the band channel the ills of current society with a crisp, riff heavy ferocity but at the same time still showcasing Soen’s unique blend of progression, aggression, and beauty.

Memorial” is drenched in melody with face-crushing guitars and rhythms from start to finish. Album opener “Sincere” starts off with relentless propulsion, whilst the sheer power of the title-track is enriched with a solid groove, underlying the weighty tones and evocative vocals of Joel Ekelöf.

Finishing with the beautiful, tragic, Pink Floyd-esque ballad “Vitals,” “Memorial” is arguably the band finding their best stride yet. Soen have been building up to this moment for years and now they’re here with “Memorial,” which is an inspiring modern Hard Rock classic.

Soen are completed by Lars Enok Åhlund (Keyboards and Guitar), Oleksii ‘Zlatoyar’ Kobel (Bass) and Cody Ford (Lead Guitar) and are set to play at this year’s Download Festival (GB) on Sunday 11th June, before embarking on the “Memorial 2023 Tour” in Europe this September, with the newly added show at the Locomotiv in Bologna (IT).
