What’s better than intricate and devilishly complex English prog-rock? The answer: intricate and devilishly complex English prog-rock played by puppets.

Haken‘s recently released album entitled The Mountain has been making the rounds lately with a tonne of praise being thrown it’s way, so it’s good to see it getting the video treatment with ‘Cockroach King‘, complete with puppets and Queen references everywhere. Check it out below:


It’s only the single version of the track, so if you enjoyed it you’ll be happy to know the full piece is far more epic and sweeping than what’s here. But still, I love music videos with a bit of humour to them and it doesn’t get more absurd than this — it really fits the sort of surreal story the track tells too.

The Mountain is out now on InsideOut Music.
