Very unfortunate album title for the new Haken album, given the circumstances.

Looking forward to this album, the first song released is very promising. Interesting this album listing is already up on MS but no news item about it.

I'm looking forward to this, too. I liked the song, nice riffs, if it had a solo, keys or guitar, it would have been even better (for me that is).

I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.

Wonder if the title is a coincidence.
But then again who still believes in coincidences in 2020?

- I've dreamt of that for years.

Is this album now available to purchase? I went to Google Play and it says it is only available for pre-order, becoming available on July 10. I'm in Australia but I thought it was released today (5 June)?

- edit: just looked at their Farcebook page and found the following statement "Unfortunately, due to ongoing logistical challenges, our new album 'Virus' will now be released on July 10th."

It's not helped by having several motifs in it. I'd think of it as a two part concept.

I have a pet theory that both albums are about social media, but two sides of the same coin. One individual, one societal.

This has been a very enjoyable album. AOTY material for me.

Tried to buy it on HD Tracks. Low and behold, the hi res version is not for sale in the United States... what a crock. I'm picking up the cd tomorrow. Glad to get it, but disappointed it's not in hi res...
