New Haken album "Visions" coming October 2011
« on: August 07, 2011, 11:44:08 AM »
Judging from the quality of Nocturnal Conspiracy and Insomnia, which were played live at Night of the Prog in July, this should be really, really good:


1. Premonition - 4:10
2. Nocturnal Conspiracy - 13:08
3. Insomnia - 6:06
4. The Mind's Eye - 4:05
5. Portals - 5:27
6. Shapeshifter - 8:08
7. Deathless - 8:04
8. Visions - 22:25

The US release has been announced for October 25. If you want it earlier, you'll have to attend one of Haken's September live gigs, either at ProgPower USA in Atlanta or at the Generation Prog Festival in Nürnberg, Germany. :)

Oh yeah: In addition to the 22 minute title track, songs no. 4, 5 and 6 are connected, creating a ~18 minute suite. :)

Btw, here's an interview with Hen and Tom from Haken (and also from To-Mera) that I conducted at Night of the Prog last month:

The first album was indeed a good debut, I look forward to hearing it.

Loved their debut album Aquarius...if the new one is as good,it should be brilliant.

Haken have released over six minutes of samples from the upcoming album today, sounds very promising! :)

What with Dream Theater's ADTOE,Haken's Visions and the impending It Bites new album,autumn is going to be an expensive but very enjoyable time.Great sound bites from Haken,the new album sounds great. :)

Been playing Visions for a weeks now, every bit as good as Hakens debut imo.

Haken will perform with Flaming Row (for the first time live on stage!) next April in Germany. What a line-up!!  8-)
