Haken is a London-based Progressive rock/Progressive metal band. They were formed in 2007 by To-Mera guitarist andkeyboardist Richard Henshall and his two school friends Ross Jennings (vocals) and Matthew Marshall (guitar). The bandcompleted their lineup with a keyboardist they met on an online forum, Peter Jones, and Jones' close friend and drummerRaymond Hearne, and To-Mera guitarist Thomas MacLean became the band's bassist. They recorded a demo in 2007 thatcontained two tracks, 'Snow' and 'Souls'. With the demo they began to play small live venues in London, with some goodresponse. In 2008 they then recorded four more songs, 'Manifolds', 'Blind', 'Sleeping Thoughts Wake' and 'Black Seed',and released a full-length demo including all six existing tracks.

Later in 2008, Marshall and Jones left the band to pursue other careers. Charlie Griffiths, the guitarist for the band LinearSphere and Anchorhead became a full time member of the band. The keyboardist Diego Tejeida joined the band in late2008 as well. As they began to tour more, even opening a few UK shows for King's X, Sensory Records recognized themand offered them a record deal. They began recording for their debut album, Aquarius, soon after, and it was released inMarch 2010. Their follow up album, Visions, was released in October 2011. « hide
