Soen is a supergroup consisting of various high-profile extreme metal musicians. Their debut album Cognitive was released on February 15, 2012.

On May 28, 2010, the formation of Soen was announced, its lineup consisting of former Opeth drummer Martin Lopez, ex-Death, Testament and Sadus bassist Steve DiGiorgio, Willowtree vocalist Joel Ekelöf and guitarist Kim Platbarzdis. The group’s first song, “Fraccions”, was released on the band’s official website on October 2010. Their first video, for the song “Savia”, was posted on their Facebook page on February 2012. Their second video is a moody acoustic version of the song “Ideate”. The band’s third video is for the song “Delenda”.

Drummer Martin Lopez has described Soen’s music as “melodic, heavy, intricate and very different than everything else.” Their debut, Cognitive, was released in February 2012 to positive critical reception, the members’ technical proficiency receiving most praise, though many reviewers noted extreme stylistic similarities to the music of Tool.

Martin Lopez commented on the Tool similarity: “We are inspired by Tool but I consider them not only a band but a genre. Besides that, I really don’t think there’s anything to argue about, we make good music whoever it would remind you of. Some people tend to dislike rather than like and are looking for faults instead of seeing music for what it is, good or bad”.

Cognitive was released on Spinefarm records on February 15, 2012.

    This makes me realise Martin was a big reason to why I loved Ghost Reveries so much. [2]

    Martin Lopez deserves some mad cred. One of the biggest reasons I started drumming and sub-sequentially music.

    It's like Tool but without being experimental. The music is pretty good but the album seems empty.

    "Aesthetically resembles Tool, but if you listen to it closely you'll notice it's actually more technical than Tool." No shit :DD

    Savia sounds so much like a Tool/A Perfect Circle song. It's amazing.

    Шикарное звучание, отменный вокал и тексты. Как будто взяли самое лучшее из Tool и Katatonia. Воистину, давно такой годноты не слушала :3

    I'm hearing similarities with mostly Tool, but also some Opeth and Riverside mixed in too.

    FYI Tool ripped off this band.
