La doar doi ani de la aparitia albumului “Vector” (2018), formatia britanica Haken (progressive metal, progressive rock) revine cu cel 6-lea material discografic, intitulat “Virus“. Discul va fi lansat pe 5 iunie 2020, sub egida InsideOut Music iar videoclipul primului single de promovare, “Prosthetic“, poate fi urmarit mai jos.
Trupa a declarat: “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.”
