HAKEN, one of progressive music’s most exciting bands, have announced details of their much-anticipated fifth studio album titled ‘Vector’, due for release on the 26th October 2018. The album was produced by the band themselves, and recorded & mixed by Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood (Periphery, Devin Townsend Project), with the artwork once again being handled by Blacklake.
This eerie soundscape, crafted by Diego Tejeida, is a great.
by Prog Nick Matzukis. The Haken virus has infected thousands in Prog world, and it is easy to see why. Staggering live performances, mathematically precise instrumentation, impenetrably complex and challenging arrangements, a (more recent) willingness to embrace variation and, quite simply, unique raw prog metal power. The result has been a viral spreading of Haken’s popularity throughout the world. I have at times been accused of being ‘on the fence’ about Haken
Vector is a sure sign that bands can indeed come back from the post magnum opus slump. It’s often said that one needs to fall to succeed, and that’s true for Haken. They may have taken a tumble as opposed to plummeting down a cliff, but it just goes to show how the band needed to take a risk and explore awkward territory to craft a masterful album even better that The Mountain.
This album is much denser than the previous Haken albums. It’s driven by riffs and melodies, and for that reason it feels more sonically dense and busy. I understand why they kept the album length short – it may have been overwhelming to keep this intensity up for 70 minutes. It’s technically complex, with a lot of complex time signatures, rhythms, and with a lot of layers to dig through to discover what’s really going on in the music. In the middle of the song there’s a longer, calm section with some programmed rhythms (courtesy of original keyboardist Peter Jones, if I’m not mistaken) – but. But if this album, titled ‘Vector’, is musically heavy, then there’s an underlying theme running through the seven songs which is certainly esoteric and fascinating. The scene is set with the track The Good Doctor, which was a really fun song. Musically it feels like a logical step from ‘Affinity’, but lyrically it’s a bit more theatrical and about as ‘rock opera’ as Haken has ever got, explains Griffiths.
