I just found out about them a couple of days ago, and everything I hear from them is just impeccable! Incredible compositional skills, perfect combination between heavy and clean while no section seems out of place, and the production-quality is flawless! They have several albums with a bit of change in style, but I've currently mostly gone through their third album ("The Mountain") so I'll post a couple of examples from it:

Cockroach King (you can definitely hear they like Gentle Giant):

They are an incredible band, for sure. I really enjoy their albums, even the somewhat silly mermaid tale on their debut
Isn't there already a thread on them though?

I didn't really listen to the lyrics in that one, but the music sounded awesome; lighter and more "playful" in a way, but it still has a bunch of great, unique moments.

And while I actually didn't check before posting, I can see someone made a thread in the "Rock & Indie"; I wasn't sure if that would be the correct forum for this band, though it writes "A forum to discuss all forms of Rock, from Classic, Shred and Prog to Alternative and Post Rock." underneath so it perhaps includes heavier forms of Prog as well? I don't know, but either way - the last comment on that thread was almost 2 years ago.

You're right; that thread is in rock and indie. I stand corrected. The metal section definitely needs a Haken thread.

And on with their debut, yes. I didn't mean "silly" in a demeaning way; you summed it up better with describing it as "playful"; it's lighthearted and fun and very unique.

Haken suck. You'll like it if you like your prog rock uninteresting, dull, and cheesy as fuk

Did you hear about the cockney Godfather?

He made them an offer they couldn't understand.

That's just like, your opinion, man.

The cockroach song sounds like the type of song they sing on TV shows for preschoolers. Weezer already beat them to the punch though.

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I feel like we are talking about two different bands here.


Wait, didn't YOU think they sound like Weezer and preschoolers' TV shows' sing-alongs?! That's why I like them! I'm not even being sarcastic. Though I was sarcastic about me not even being sarcastic.

They sounded more like the Wiggles in the cockroach song.
