I've seen a lot of posts asking what others listen to while coding. Prog(ressive) metal/rock stimulates my mind. Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Soen, and others make me feel like I just leveled up 50 IQ points when I hear them. Every single member of every act mentioned above and below is stupidly, disgustingly talented.
Haken (rhymes with "bacon") was already HEAVY in that rotation, but today is the day. After three delays, their new album Virus is here... and it's freaking amazing.
I know what you're thinking. The name is purely coincidental and the album is loosely conceptually tied to their last album, Vector.
GO LISTEN RIGHT NOW. You're welcome.
