Haken’s “Pareidolia”: 11 Minutes of Prog/Metal Perfection

Last month, we posted Haken’s very entertaining “Cockroach King” video. Here’s the official video to another song from their excellent The Mountain album, the epic “Pareidolia”. Blending Indian and Greek elements (bouzoukis anyone?) with scorching guitars and tremendous vocals, Haken has come up with a prog/metal classic.

Pareidolia “is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant” (according to Wikipedia). You can watch the curling smoke and cascading light in the video and experience your very own pareidolia.

Fans of Rush, Dream Theater, Ayreon, Riverside, and Devin Townsend will be all over this album.

    A great track from a truly spectacular album – can’t wait to see this live in London on 24 November with the added bonus of meeting up for the first time with some of my Prog-Twitter friends …. should be a great night, plus Maschine are also on the bill 🙂
