Haken - Share New Album Title, Release Date And More

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.

Richard Henshall (guitar/keyboards) and Charlie Griffiths (guitar) had this to say about the successor to Visions: "Lyrically, we've done a lot of soul searching which has given the album an emotional depth that we're sure listeners will really relate to, whatever personal mountain they are climbing. Musically, the new songs feel rawer and more emotional than anything we've created in the past. All the essential elements of our sound are still there, but have been delivered in a more gritty and focused style."

Tracks on the new album according to Prog Magazine:

  • The Path
  • Atlas Stone
  • Cockroach King
  • In Memoriam
  • Because It's There
  • Falling Back To Earth
  • As Death Embraces
  • Pareidolia
  • Somebody

    A must listen. They really do make good music but that singer...

    ...is an acquired taste, agreed.

    They are highly skilled songwriters, though, and this coming from one who doesn't even like this style of prog-metal all that much.

    Looks cool! I liked their last album, I should check this out as well!

    I was just thinking about listening to the two previous albums because somehow I liked the singer on the first album, but not the second... want to listen again now.

    As for The Mountain, well, what can I say, looking forward...
