I was going to save this new video for a round-up of new things that I hope to write for tomorrow, since time is short at the moment. But then I thought, why wait?

The band is Soen and the song is “The Words”, from their new album Tellurian, released earlier this month by Spinefarm Records. If you’re unfamiliar with Soen, the members are drummer Martin Lopez (ex-OPETH, AMON AMARTH), bassist Stefan Stenberg, vocalist Joel Ekelöf, and guitarist Kim Platbarzdis.

“The Words” is a beautiful, haunting, heartbreaking song, and so is the black and white video that was made for the music. It’s light years away from what we usually feature at this site, a true exception to our “rule”, but very much worth hearing and seeing — which you can do next.




  1. That was fucking fantastic. Someone arrest me if I don’t finally get off my ass and check out this album after classes today.

  2. Tellurian is an amazing album and improvement from the debut. One of the best albums of the year. Great video too.

  3. I love this album but will say the production is quite bad. So thin. I don’t know how else to describe it.
