    Judging from the quality of Nocturnal Conspiracy and Insomnia, which were played live at Night of the Prog in July, this should be really, really good:
    [​IMG]

    1. Premonition - 4:10
    2. Nocturnal Conspiracy - 13:08
    3. Insomnia - 6:06
    4. The Mind's Eye - 4:05
    5. Portals - 5:27
    6. Shapeshifter - 8:08
    7. Deathless - 8:04
    8. Visions - 22:25

    The US release has been announced for October 25. If you want it earlier, you'll have to attend one of Haken's September live gigs, either at ProgPower USA in Atlanta or at the Generation Prog Festival in N├╝rnberg, Germany. :)

    Oh yeah: In addition to the 22 minute title track, songs no. 4, 5 and 6 are connected, creating a ~18 minute suite. :)

    cool, one of the best UK prog metal bands, hope they do more UK gigs (at a proper London venue too, not the Peel!)

    Can't wait for this. I play Aquarius pretty much none stop. Haken are speedly becomeing my faverate band.

    I just wish they would release a Tab book. some of the shit on Aquarius is just way to complex for me to figure out.

    cant wait for this. they claim that this release will be superior to Aquarius in every way, which is a monster of a statement.
    but hey, its Haken! cant expect much less from what theyve already done.
    hurry up october! :scream:

    Aquarius was damn good, and I really look forward to hear Visions, the length of the tracks makes me wet.

    I'm just dying to get my hands on this album... But the wait is just so damn long! It feels like time is actually slowing down as I'm waiting for the release date. :wallbash:

    The sampler sounds awesome.

    Haken, release this album already! :wallbash: I want it now!! :lol:
