Haken To Stay On The Musical Journey Of Albums

(Prog) Haken's Charlie Griffiths says the band will never move away the album format because they see it as a "musical journey." The prog rockers recently finished recording fourth album Verbatim, the full-length follow-up to 2013's The Mountain.

They also issued EP Restoration in 2014, which contained three reworked tracks from their 2008 demo. Guitarist Griffiths told prog docu-series Into The Machine: "I love albums and I don't see that ever changing. I listen to it front to back. That's how the artist wanted it to be.

"It's like reading one page of a novel - you won't get the full picture without listening to the whole thing. I won't ever let go of the album format." He adds: "With the new album we're writing, it is a complete piece. That's how I approach writing.

"We have themes that you're going to hear, like a rhythm in the first song which will pop up again in the fifth song, or a melody line in the second song which you hear again in the 10th song. It's a complete musical journey." Read more here.
