Title: The Mountain (Vinly Re-Issue 2021)
Label: Uk Century Media Rec
Product Type: VINYL LP
Mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren, 2013's The Mountain is the beloved third album from British prog metal band Haken and the last to feature bassist Thomas MacLean. "To us, The Mountain is symbolic of our journey as a band. But also reflects the wider trials and tribulations of life," the band noted. "Lyrically, we've done a lot of soul searching, which has given the album an emotional depth that we're sure listers will really relate to, whatever personal mountain they are climbing. 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 focused 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." Vinyl 2LP+CD-set from InsideOut Music.
