Nova Collective - The Further Side album review
Haken and Between The Buried And Me supergroup impress.
For many modern day proggers, a mash-up of Haken and Between The Buried And Me will equate to something of a musical wet dream. The two bands, distanced geographically by the mighty blue of the Atlantic Ocean, have been blazing their own trail in the scene over the last number of years, but in more recent times, it feels like there’s been a growing common thread. While the former have been tumbling down a more nostalgic path, with nods to Yes and Gentle Giant, and the latter are historically noted for delving into death-leaning distortio and breakneck beats, there’s a weighty mutual appreciation, with the two acts touring touring in 2015.
