Soon are a duo from Maine, consisting of Naythen Wilson (familiar from his Jandek covers tape This is a Death Dream) and Stephen Cicia.

Their bleak, doom-laden idiom combines deliberate and chance elements in raw but carefully balanced arrangements, with field recordings given equal weight to instrumental parts, cryptic-language vocals and percussion that could just as likely be the sound of manual labour as deliberate musical expression. On occasion it recalls the improvised abstraction of Pelt or the bleak rituals of Abruptum, but defies categorisation. 

Soon's music is mystical, deep and nocturnal but never vague, and maintains a profoundly mournful and cathartic emotional core.
