SOEN Releases Lyric Video For “Kuraman”Friday, 27th February 2015
SOEN, the progressive metal band featuring former OPETH drummer Martin Lopez, has posted the lyric video for “Kuraman,,” a song from their 2014 Tellurian album. According to a press release, “The song takes listeners on a sonic thrill ride, while the accompanying visuals have a bit of a classic textbook feel; see for yourself.”
Produced by Platbarzdis, mixed by the legendary Grammy Award-winning David Bottrill (TOOL, SMASHING PUMPKINS, MUSE, KING CRIMSON) and mastered at Bob Ludwig’s Gateway setup in the U.S. by Adam Ayan, also a Grammy winner, Tellurian sees SOEN taking the approach of their Cognitive debut (2012, Spinefarm) and pushing the boundaries in terms of musical scope, the whole thing shot through with the confidence of a band who have found their voice.
Rhythmic, experimental and flowing, and with the “muso” side never taking precedence over a good song and a telling chorus, Tellurian (“relating to, or inhabiting the earth”) will appeal to anyone with an ear for quality playing, and there’s further reward to be had below the surface, with the lyrics taking a more direct route than on Cognitive, and the construction of the material — including first single/video “Tabula Rasa” (“Clean Slate”) – allowing room for the raw emotion to shine through.
