About Haken

One of the torchbearers of the progressive metal genre in the 21st century, Haken are a London-based band who formed in 2007 and have amassed critical and popular acclaim with each release.

Consisting of Ross Jennings (vocals), Richard Henshall and Charles Griffiths (guitars), Raymond Hearne (drums), Diego Tejeida (keyboards) and Conner Green (bass), the band has had four releases: Aquarius (2010), Visions (2011), The Mountain (2013) and Affinity (2016).

"Aquarius landed just two years after the sextet's initial creation, and yet the breathtaking scope of its ambitions, stylistic hybridization, and sheer instrumental skill suggest entire decades of accumulated experience between those involved," read a review on Allmusic.

Their latest album, Affinity, well and truly cemented the band's place as one of the leading progressive metal bands of this era, Progressive Music Planet giving it a perfect 10/10 score.

Fans of progressive rock and metal cannot afford to miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the band play live, in one of the best settings Mumbai has to offer!
