Haken: Kündigen Veröffentlichung ihres brandneuen, dritten Albums "The Mountain" an
Die aus London stammende Progressive-Metal Band HAKEN hat lange an ihrem dritten Album, dem Nachfolger ihres brillianten, 2011 erschienenen Album "Visions" gearbeitet. Umso mehr freut sich die Band, endlich die Veröffentlichung ihres neuen Albums mit dem Titel "The Mountain", das am 30. August über InsideOutMusic erscheinen wird, preisgeben zu dürfen. Bandmitglieder Richard Henshall und Charlie Griffiths haben Folgendes über die Veröffentlichung des neuen Albums zu sagen:
'It has taken a huge amount of time and effort to get the band to where it is today and yet it still feels like the journey is just beginning. It's very gratifying to know that all the hard work we've put in over the years is beginning to pay off. We really believe that alongside InsideOut we can achieve great things and aim to make the next chapter in Haken's story a crucial one.
To us, 'The Mountain' is symbolic of our journey as a band, but also reflects the wider trials and tribulations of life. 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 focussed style. We've really pushed ourselves in all areas and truly believe that this album is a step up from any of our previous work, so we are extremely excited about sharing 'The Mountain' with everybody.'
We decided to ask Jens Bogren to care of mixing and mastering, after being blown away by his work on albums like Opeth's 'Watershed' and Devin Townsend's 'Deconstruction'. 'The Mountain' ranges from the delicate, to the brutal with everything in between and Jens handled the dynamic range amazingly well; we couldn't be happier with the result. We're working with 'Blacklake Design' on the artwork, so having the booklet in your hands when you listen will really enhance the experience.'
