Haken guitarist Charlie Griffiths - Vader 8 string

Pretty cool! He's using a Kiesel Vader 8 string here in a play through of the Haken song '1985', from their latest (2016) album Affinity:

(the album track has singing, this is just the instruments)

I was fortunate enough in 2015 to see Haken play in a little club outside of Detroit. Charlie Griffiths used a Strandberg 8-string for that show.

Great use of an 8 string and I've just been listening to their new album Affinty which is really good.

Looks they are London based like me so another Vader resides in London Town.

I love the way these forum posts and artist videos introduce you to new music.

Haken are probably my favorite heavy prog band right now. I'm a huge Dream Theater fan, but these days I think I like Haken (which rhymes with bacon) more so than I do DT.

I've loved Haken since The Mountain. They're terrific! The musicianship of Dream Theater, but with something musically interesting to say.

Looks like he might be bringing the Kiesel on the new U.S. tour, too.
