    Prog masters Soen will release Tellurian, their second studio album, on November 4 via Spinefarm. Like Tool? Rush? Opeth? Then you will worship dutifully at Soen's altar.

    Soen– that's drummer Martin Lopez (ex-Opeth, Amon Amarth), vocalist Joel Ekelöf (Willowtree), guitarist Joakim Platbarzdis and bassist Stefan Stenberg – are not concerned with the simple or the shallow; their musical journey takes an altogether more ambitious path, and the result is an expansive body of work, wrapped up in the stunning art of Mexican painter José Luis López Galván, that consistently challenges without being "clever-clever" or tough to enjoy.

    The melodies are intricate, the playing muscular and the choruses soaring; overall, the feel is one of a band whose intent is very much in synch with the sort of core values —skilled musicianship, emotion over precision, importance of album artwork— that seem to be back in vogue.

    Sound good to you? Then mark that calendar for the November 4 release of Soen's Tellurian.

    Who's down? Who's in?
