... get yourself this one. Soen is a band formed by former Opeth drummer Martin Lopez, guitarist from Testament and two other guys which names I couldn't remember. Tool's influence is obvious here. However these lads came from metal scene, so therefore you can hear it in riffs. Luckily for them this is them twist, which making them being something more than only copy of the other band.
Vocal is very toolish also, but it's just suits the music for me and I wont criticize Soen for it. Only difference is Maynard is more expressive and his voice seems to be more diverse. In that aspect Soen's vocalist is got some more room for improvement here.
This album should appeal to fans of Porcupine Tree, Opeth and Tool of course
