Haken - Cockroach King

A new week and it's time to present this weeks Record Of The Week and this time the sound waves is very progressive.

Haken is a London-based progressive metal band formed in 2007. So far Haken has released a total of three full-length studio albums and we are going to listen to a track from the third and most recently released album "The Mountain", released 2 September 2013. It is the last album to feature bassist Thomas MacLean.

Several of my blogging colleagues have been writing about their enthusiasm for this band and I can only agree, this good, very good, thinking of the progressive rock area, aka 70's when I hear this, a bit jazzy, fusion rock with fascinating riffs made by obviously highly talented musicians and all topped with a superb vocals.  Excellent!

That a band like this can write a 70 minute record that is entertaining completely through with so many different styles amaze me. All this together make this record record brilliant.

Todays tune "Cockroach King" taken from the third album "The Mountain", Enjoy!
