Tiktaalika is the debut album from Charlie Griffiths, guitarist for Haken.
A concept work with musical roots firmly in the Progressive realm, Charlie draws from his love of old-school 80s thrash, 90s tech-metal and alternative rock. Running the gamut from melodic to avant-garde to straight-up heavy, Tiktaalika bridges the gap between King Crimson and King Diamond!.
The Griffiths-penned lyrics are given voice by Tommy Rogers (Between the Buried And Me), Danïel De Jongh (Textures), Vladimir Lalić (Organised Chaos) and Neil Purdy (Luna’s Call). Guest musicians include Darby Todd (Martin Barre, Frost, Devin Townsend), Jordan Rudess and Rob Townsend (Steve Hackett).
The album was mixed by Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood and mastered by Ermin Hamidovic. The artwork is by Dan Goldsworthy.
