Die Progressiv Rocker HAKEN kündigen ihr neues Studioalbum "Virus" an. Das Album soll am 5. Juni 2020 via InsideOut Music erscheinen. "Virus" ist der Höhepunkt eines musikalischen Gedankenexperiments, das mit dem Album "Vector" im Jahr 2017 begann und ein faszinierendes Potenzial für die Zukunft der Band birgt.

Sänger Ross Jennings erklärt:

“Whilst ‘Virus’ can absolutely be enjoyed as a stand-alone work, it is thematically and conceptually linked with "Vector", so our intention is to perform both albums back to back for a special performance someday”.


Tracklist:

1.    Prosthetic
2.    Invasion
3.    Carousel
4.    The Strain
5.    Canary Yellow
6.    Messiah Complex i: Ivory Tower
7.    Messiah Complex ii: A Glutton for Punishment
8.    Messiah Complex iii: Marigold
9.    Messiah Complex iv: The Sect
10.  Messiah Complex v: Ectobius Rex
11.  Only Stars


Zur Einführung hat die Band eine spezielle Videobotschaft aufgenommen, um den Hintergrund der Platte zu erläutern:


Außerdem geben HAKEN mit dem Musikvideo zum Titelsong "Prosthetic", bei dem Vicente Cordero Regie führte, einen ersten Einblick in das kommende Album.

Die Band kommentiert:

“"Prosthetic" was the first song we completed during the "Virus" writing sessions and we always felt it would be the perfect opener for the album. It’s a very guitar heavy track with its roots in 80s thrash riffing, but with the unconventional rhythmic twists and turns we often like to explore in Haken. We sadly never had a Jeff Hanneman and Robert Fripp collaboration, but this song at least draws on inspiration from them both!

Lyrically the song is a bridge between our two albums "Vector" and "Virus". The message was brilliantly brought to life by video director Vicente Cordero, who also beautifully captured the live energy of the band in a way that both enhances the song, and perfectly sets the scene for what’s to come.”
