Progressive metallers Haken recently revealed details of the release of their forthcoming third album ‘The Mountain’, which is due to hit the street on the 2nd September in Europe and 17th September 2013 in the USA. In conjunction with the UK’s Prog Magazine, they can let you hear the fantastic first track to be released from said album entitled ‘Atlas Stone’. The band had this to say about the track:

‘Atlas Stone’ has a delicate mix of soft chiming passages, jazzy interludes and crunching riffs and encapsulates the spirit of the ‘The Mountain’ perfectly. The song is exhilarating and uplifting but is tinged with a sense of urgency and desperation which reflects one’s journey to the peak of the mountain. We can’t wait to play it on our upcoming tour in September!

Rich Henshall and Charlie Griffiths of the band recently said of the new album:
‘Musically, the new songs feel rawer and more emotional than anything we’ve created in the past. All the essential elements of our sound are still there but have been delivered in a more gritty and focussed style. We’ve really pushed ourselves in all areas and truly believe that this album is a step up from any of our previous work, so we are extremely excited about sharing ‘The Mountain’ with everybody.’
