Concert The Aristocrats (o.v.b.), Cultuurpodium Boerderij, Zoetermeer
|Omschrijving||Following the bands much-acclaimed fourth studio
album Affinity, L-1VE is Haken’s first ever live
album. Recorded and filmed on the 13th April 2017, at
the Melkweg venue in Amsterdam, L-1VE includes tracks
from across the bands discography. The band comments:
“The release of official live material is a project
that is long overdue and we know our existing fans
have been crying out for this for some time now. It
is largely due to the will of the people that the
idea of this project became a reality. Both the band
and the label were inundated with emails requesting a
live release in some shape or form, and it was
actually rather flattering, so giving the people what
they wanted just felt like the right thing to do”.
The setlist focussed heavily on their 2 most recent
critically acclaimed albums Affinity (2016) and The
Mountain (2013) with a 22 minute encore of the title
track from Visions (2011). However, the centrepiece
of the album has to be Aquamedley, which sees the
band celebrating and performing excerpts from their
debut album Aquarius (2010) - a story of a mermaid
born into a corrupt human world.

filmed at ProgPower USA 2016, that also includes Mike

with Neal Morse and Winery Dogs.
