One of the top 2 progressive albums of 2016 so far
Haken has always been a powerful beast in the realm of progresive metal and rock. While their past releases had huge doeses of 70's progressive rock mixed with metal, this album took more influence from 80's progressive rock to amazing results. This should have been a caustic mix but somehow they pulled in off into something absolutely essential for anyone who likes top-notch progressive music (Opeth fans take note). I mean there are some keyboard tones that are very 80's that makes you feel like you are somewhere between "The Final Countdown" or the soundtrack to Transformers: the movie (animated). Heck, one of the songs has a keyboard intro that sounds like it belongs on some 80's cop/courtroom drama TV show. But all that aside, the songs are truly epic, well played, well written, and right now if you haven't done so already you should be clicking "add to cart" and buying this sucker because it is truly an amazing experience! The kicker, I HATE 80's music but I love this! Seriously, but this now or at least sample on their Youtube page if you don't take my word for it!
By the way, if you are wondering what the other top progressive album is that I was eluding to, it is the new Katatonia album which is also a must buy!
