Soen – Rival

 Lotus is the forthcoming new studio album from Swedish-based progressive metal collective, SOEN. Set for release via Silver Lining Music on February 1st, 2019, the nine songs comprising Lotus are intoxicating, addictive aural therapies, questioning much of today’s darkness while juxtaposing them with moments of great escape and hope. Produced by David Castillo and Iñaki Marconi at Ghostward Studios and Studio 6, the album features the first recorded SOEN material with newest recruit, Canadian-born guitarist Cody Ford, whilst the centre-point of the album remains those trademark, snap-heavy, progressive SOEN riffs. Songs such as “Rival,” “Covenant,” and “Martyrs” are dissertations on modern societies, fraught with poetic, finitely designed confusion… Continue reading

Up-and-coming Kent rocksters, GALLOWS CIRCUS, were formed in 2017, and ever since they have been making new friends and picking up fans right across the country. The talented dirty-blues rockers dropped their self-titled debut EP last year, notching up a tidal wave of support from the underground. The quartet… Continue reading

Ian Williams – It Was No Accident

Recorded between 2005 and 2017 on a 1904 Steinway baby grand in the French village of Cogny, an 1899 Blüthner at Studio Slaughterback in London and an unknown, earthquake-tuned piano at the Ice Cream Studio in Tokyo, the album is a dark and disturbing trip through the decaying and decadent last days of… Continue reading
