When Haken’s fourth full length album ‘Affinity’ was unleashed to the world in 2016, they truly cemented their position as one of the UK’s leading artists for the next generation of Prog/Metal. Delving into their love of 80’s music and fusing it with modern metal and big anthems.
Their own ever-expanding affiniTOURS saw them perform to new territories in the USA, India and Australia whilst subsequently, a successful re-issue campaign of their first 2 albums and a 10 year anniversary tour throughout Eurpope and North America only reminded the world that Haken is a force on the rise and not to be reckoned with.
L-1VE was filmed and recorded on April 13th 2017 in Amsterdam at the legendary Melkweg on the final night of their 10th Anniversary tour. This release marks Haken’s first ever official live album and film; something that has been a passion project not only for the band but has also been spurred on by the fans.
Available as 2CD+2DVD, DVD 2 (of the 2 CD + 2 DVD Digipak) comes with 4 additional songs played live at Prog Power 2016 as bonus and includes 3 music videos. Incl. a 5.1 mix of the main show and the bonus tracks. Also available as 2LP, Haken’s first ever official live release on vinyl.
