More information: In their brief existence, Haken are already highly respected within the British metal community, and their unique and imaginative genre-bending approach to music has garnered praise from all corners of the globe. Hakens debut Aquarius was well-received by world wide media including Classic Rock Presents Prog, Outburn, Decibel, Progression as well as webzines. Their new release, Visions is yet another conceptual work encompassing sci-fi themes. Haken seamlessly meld metal with progressive rock, drawing influences from contemporary bands like Dream Theater as well as old school icons Genesis and Queen. Often bombastic and over the top, Visions features the addition of a string section and audiophile production from Spacelab Studios in Germany. During the past year, the band has toured extensively in Europe highlighted by an appearance in Germany at the prestigious Night Of The Prog festival in support of Dream Theater. The band made its US debut at ProgPower USA in September 2011.
