Description

Since releasing 'Vector' in October 2018, Haken have completed headline tours the world over, played sold-out shows across Europe and North America as support for Devin Townsend and picked up a Prog award for their efforts too! All the while, they have been quietly, secretly working on the follow-up album, entitled 'Virus'. Drummer Ray Hearne reveals, "since releasing 'The Mountain' in 2013, one question has been asked of us time and time again, 'who is the Cockroach King?'. This is something we were interested in exploring more deeply too, so we essentially did that through our music; elaborating and expanding upon the intervallic, harmonic, rhythmic and lyrical themes of that song. The end result is in an arc which spans across two albums: 'Vector' and 'Virus'". Once again, Adam 'Nolly' Getgood has mixed what is perhaps the most eclectic Haken album to date, with the 7 tracks revealing hints of influences from multiple genres, all intertwined with Haken's own recognisable sound.
