Virtuosity, creativity and dynamic is what Haken stands for. The British band was founded in 2007 and has deservedly earned its place as a prominent part of the neo-prog scene. When Haken debuted in 2010 with their album "Aquarius", critics already predicted the band could look forward to a great future. Haken has truly fulfilled these expectations in recent years and the release of their fifth album "Vector" is planned for the end of October.
The sound of Haken is characterized by atmospheric symphonic sounds, virtuoso guitar work and solid drum parts. The voice of frontman Ross Jennings regularly causes goose bumps. Comparisons with Dream Theater, The Flower Kings and Gentle Giant are frequently made. Earlier this year the band released its first live album, “L-1VE”. “Vector” is the successor to the successful album “Affinity” from 2016. Expectations are high and the band does not like to disappoint. “We don’t like to make simple music” says Ross Jennings.
Vola is from Denmark. Their debut album “Inmazes” (2015) received rave reviews. The foursome combined djent rock with synthpop and prog influences. Their new album “Applause Of A Distant Crowd” (2018) is once again a compelling whole that will do well in many annual charts. Highly recommended for fans of Messugah, Opeth, Porcupine Tree and Depeche Mode.https://www.volaband.com/
Bent Knee hails from Boston and saw the light of day in 2009. The driving force behind this band is singer/keyboard player Courtney Swain. Bent Knee was featured at last year’s Progdreams Festival. The band now has four albums to its name. Their latest album “Land Animal” (2017) is a combination of alternative rock, metal, pop, ambient, avant-garde and progressive rock. Artrock at its best!https://www.bentkneemusic.com/
