Yes. London's Haken really like Yes. That much has been evident since they burst on to the progressive metal scene back in 2010 with their debut album, Aquarius. As the sands have clunked through the hourglass, the sextet has used a big ol' Yes-shaped lasso to round up as many sub-genre bits 'n' bobs, throwing in some metal glitter, a la Dream Theater, into the fray. The result has produced three consistent albums of material with sky-high musical IQ encoded in the helixes of its DNA. Yes were, and still are, auteurs at borrowing from genres outside of the rock world and wrangling them under the banner of their own identity while, more often than not, delivering toe-tapping rhythms and infectious melodies (and consequently, the hit singles) and you can hear Haken striving to exhibit this quality. Obviously, existing 40-plus years after the emergence of Fragile gives Haken a bigger pool of musical material to dip into, resulting in a stronger need for focus. Hell, if you want to throw a bit of cheekiness into the mix, feel free to point out that the band not only has traditional, late 60's/70s Yes to be inspired by, they also have the new wave-ish, prog-pop of 90215 and Big Generator to borrow from the musical reference library, should they so desire. And they do.
