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.
The band had this to say about the video: "With Cockroach King we allowed our eccentric side to come to the fore and wrote a song in the tradition of some of our favourite English 70s bands like Queen, The Specials and of course - it's obviously a huge tip of the hat to Gentle Giant. There's some 8-string metal riffing in there too and of course Jens Bogren did an amazing job with the mix, It's a blend of the old traditions and modern sounds that we jokingly refer to as 'Djentle Djiant'. The video is also a tribute to a more innocent time before our TVs were dominated by computer animation and hi-definition; a time when things were handmade, wholesome and fun for the whole family!"
