Haken have streamed their track Crystallised from upcoming EP Restoration – and invited fans to identify Mike Portnoy’s contribution in order to win a merch bundle.
Portnoy in Haken hunt
Band invite fans to spot Mike’s contribution to 19-minute track - and win merch bundle
The 19-minute epic can be heard now, and will be released on October 27 via InsideOut.
Guitarist Charlie Griffiths says: “We’d like you to listen to Crystallised and answer two questions about it. The great Mike Portnoy makes a guest appearance – so the first question is, can you identify what Mike’s playing, and when he plays it. Question two is: when Mike recorded his part, which legendary English drummer did he mention? Have a guess.”

Oct 23: London Garage
