UK progressive metal group Haken have announced that bassist Tom MacLean has decided to quit the band following their upcoming October show at Prog Stage Festival in Israel. After that, the band will continue with a special guest bassist (to be announced) until they find a permanent member.
With their third album freshly released, British prog juggernauts Haken have now revealed a video for the single edit of the track "Cockroach King". The band had a little bit of fun with this one and you might find some headbanging puppets there. It was directed by Haken and Christian Burnett. Watch it below. The Mountain is available now via InsideOut.
British prog metal band Haken premiere their debut official video for the song "Pareidolia". The 11-minute long track appears on the band's upcoming new album, The Mountain, to be released by InsideOut Music on September 2nd. The Mountain will be available on several different formats, including a limited edition digipak CD which includes two bonus tracks, a standard jewelcase CD, a heavyweight gatefold 2LP and digital download. More album details were previously reported here.
The moment Haken fans have been waiting for has arrived. There is finally new music to be enjoyed from the new album The Mountain. Stop what you are doing and listen to the new song "Atlas Stone" right now. The seven-minute piece is available on the video below. Inside Out will release the new opus on September 2nd.
Attention progheads, Haken have announced the title of their new and third album and it is: The Mountain. You can expect the new opus to hit stores on September 2nd through their new label InsideOut Music. There is still a lot of waiting around to do, but hopefully we will get to hear new material soon. The band also posted an image on their Facebook page but didn't really reveal if it would be the album cover or not.
After yet another successful year for progressive metallers Haken, which saw them play Night Of The Prog Festival and tour with Headspace amongst others, the band is kicking off 2013 with the news that they have signed to InsideOut Music (Riverside, Devin Townsend, Pain Of Salvation, Leprous, among others) for a worldwide contract.
Proggers Haken have decided to offer their fans a Christmas gift: snippets from their upcoming third album demo. It's just a tease, but at least it is a start. You can listen to and also download the snippets over here. The follow-up to Visions is in the works and more should be revealed soon.
Young UK prog outfit Haken has announced the title of their second album to be Visions.
The new record will be a concept album, just like the debut Aquarius, which dealt with water and ecology, though the exact concept of Visions has not yet been revealed.
Singer Ross Jennings ensures: "We are confident this album will not disappoint fans of Aquarius. As well as pulling some signature stunts, we are also trying to raise the bar with our compositions, and as individual players..."
The band has also stated that they wanted to make the album available exclusive for those attending ProgPower USA in Atlanta on Saturday, September 17th. The tentative release date is planned for the beginning of October and will be announced later.
