For years, the term ‘prog’ has been thrown around to describe a vast array of musical outfits with little sonic consistency from one to the next.
When it comes to Vancouver based prog-metal band HAWKING however, the sense in which ”progressive” is meant is clear: embedded in the group’s ethos is a razor-sharp desire to subvert expectations and tear past the boundaries of what modern, instrument-heavy music can sound like. HAWKING steps outside of tropes like ‘prog’ and ‘djent’, shapeshifting into whatever form they choose.
HAWKING was born into existence in 2014, and have spent the years since refining and meditating on the presentation of their art. Relentless touring and writing would sharpen their musicality, technical prowess and sense of duty as a creative force. From emotionally invigorating spells cast by tactically precise compositions, to cathartic live performances that guide us into the deeper, darker recesses of our minds, the mysticism HAWKING exudes has proven to be as captivating as it is rejuvenating for fans of progressive music worldwide.
Though their on-stage energy can be unrelenting and downright aggressive, HAWKING’s thoughtful communication and presence continually remind us to honour our inner truth above all else; to resist those external forces seeking to groom us into something other than ourselves. It is this attitude and ethos that has garnered HAWKING global interest and given rise to an intimately connected and widespread following.
