The Lotus Effect is the third studio album by the Dutch progressive metal band Sun Caged, released on June 17, 2011 by Lion Music. The album features the same lineup as their previous album Artemisia except for the loss of bassist Roel Vink, who was replaced by Daniel Kohn. Writing and arranging music for the album began almost immediately after release of Artemisia in 2007, with instrumental recording beginning in late 2008

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). As much a work of art as anything Sylvan or Riverside has ever done, Lotus Effect is just rich and addictive, from beginning to end. Its also also a long album, so get ready for a musical journey. I look forward to another release from these guys.

Album The Lotus Effect. No one untouched by it, in filth we thrive Darkness sublimated, from this we all derive Alluvium rising higher, hiding the way to my desire Mysteriously – Falling away or flying fre. ach one of us keeps fighting not to be broken down, until we realize For one instant my love and my anguish fertilize Levity mysteriously Washes over me Climbing up out of the water Am I flying high, or falling away like a moment of clarity Lotus transcending out of the mire – Pur. nd when I open my eyes all that's there to see Relies on every step I took while blind.

Dutch quintet Sun Caged was first formed in 1999 by guitarist Marcel Coenen and drummer Dennis Leeflang. Their self-titled debut album (mixed by Arjen Lucassen of Ayreon) was released in 2003, followed by Artemisia in 2007 (with new lead singer Paul Adrian Villareal on board), and then by The Lotus Effect in the early summer of 2011 (the first with new bassist Daniel Kohn). All of the band’s albums have been released on Finnish label Lion Music. Though voices such as Villareal’s can be much of an acquired taste, his consistently solid performance on The Lotus Effect show that is very much in control of everything that is going on around him. His skill and confidence are especially spotlighted in On Again/Off Again, his voice soaring above the relentless tapestry of riffs and keyboards, and the mellow Reductio Ad Absurdum , a ballad in the tradition of Dream Theater’s Another Day or Space Dye Vest.
