Haken’s New Video for “Puzzle Box” is Psychologically Maddening


Haken just dropped a video for their brand new song “Puzzle Box.” I highly encourage you to watch the eight-minute clip for a literal interpretation of the track’s title: the band members struggling to solve what appears to be an incredibly vexing actual puzzle box! Just watching is making me frustrated — how the fuck do you open it?? — and the intercut footage showing a map of a mental institution and Rorschach ink blots certainly isn’t making me feel any better about it.

Check out the clip below. New album Vector comes out October 26th via InsideOut Music; pre-order here. Haken head out on tour in North America with fellow prog paraders Leprous later this month; dates underneath the embed!
