The provocative, imperious and engaging Sweden based metal group SOEN reveals the haunting video for “Deceiver,” taken from their fifth album, IMPERIAL, out now via Silver Lining Music.
Founder members Joel Ekelöf (vocals) and Martin Lopez (drums), along with Lars Enok Åhlund (keyboards and guitar), Cody Ford (lead guitar) and Oleksii “Zlatoyar” Kobel (bass) challenge the problems, issues and emotions in our increasingly frantic world. The outfit exquisitely contrasts the potently heavy yet eagerly dynamic in their latest video “Deceiver.”
The crunchy, metallic groove of “Deceiver” coupled with Ekelöf’s mesmerizing vocals carries a somber sentiment: “‘Deceiver’ is about battling whatever demons you have and carrying that constant worry on your shoulders, how it can wear you down and make whatever goals you achieve in your life pointless,” explains Lopez.
“It’s about standing up against that negativity within you and trying to keep going even if that negative shadow follows you wherever you go,” adds Åhlund.
