Aside from the band members, there is also one guest on ‘Affinity’. This is Leprous vocalist Einar Solberg, who guests on the song ‘The Architect’.Griffiths believes that ‘Affinity’, although exploring new musical territory, will appeal to longtime fans. “The last thing we want to do was to repeat what we’ve done before. Just because ‘The Mountain’ has been our most successful release to date, we didn’t want to just copy the formula. I’m sure people will recognise that it is the same band, but we’ve tried to bring different influences and fresh, interesting sounds to the fore; to evolve as musicians and as a band. I’m sure we have found the right way to move forward, while keeping enough of the Haken style to satisfy our fans.”According to their official website, the band have also revealed they have started to work on their fifth studio album: “We’re currently getting our teeth stuck into the writing process for Album 5 and great ideas are forming and evolving as we speak. It’s still early days but there is a sense among us that Haken may take a darker path with this one. However, the playing field is still wide open and the direction this record takes could alter at any point. One thing is certain: We will endeavour to stick to our mandate of strong melodies and Killer riffs!”
