Former drummer of Dream Theater, Mike Portnoy spoke in an interview by Dream Theater Club and revealed his favorite progressive metal band from this generation. He said:
“They’re all incredible musicians. I think Haken is this new generation’s prog-metal super band. They remind me of what I used to do with Dream Theater, but a modern-day version.
It dates back a few years – Haken was doing a US tour, and my son’s band Next to None was opening. At the final show of the tour, [the guys from Haken] asked if I would come up and play ‘The Mirror’ [off DT’s 1994 album ‘Awake’] with them.”
