Two bands from two opposite sides of Atlantic, both with distinctive tenors, using beautiful tunes, long compositions, expressive keyboards and heavy guitar riffs. Both bands have two latest albums, which are very high rated on Prog Archives.
 
UK band Haken is listed here as Heavy Prog, but rather sounds like Prog Metal; on the other hand US band Discipline plays Symphonic Prog which is somewhat mixed with Eclectic.
 
Who's your favourite?

Haken is the best thing that happened to humanity in the last 100 years, after the internet. They got every aspect of music that was worth it together, to create 2 masterpieces in a few years, while having full-time jobs and family to take care of.

Discipline is a great symphonic prog band.

How to compare those two, i liked them both, but with the new Discipline, i have the impression that the band is on the downhill spiral which is not the case with Haken.

Haken. Visions is my fav album of the year. To Shatter All Accord was a disappointment for me. Doesn't come close to Unfolded The Staircase.

Haken is a rising star on the Heavy Prog firmament that we have to watch closely, but Discipline gets my vote.

I voted for both, though I wouldnt call Discipline a young band since they were formed and performed in the Detroit area in the late 80's.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

Though Haken is a great and promising band, my vote definitely goes for Discipline. In fact, "To Shatter All Accord" may probably be my top 2011 album.

Discipline (and Parmenter) are great artists.
I don't care for Haken at all but they're pretty good at what they do (at least on Visions)

Haken is good but I'll forget them in 5 years. Discipline's "Limbo" from UNFOLDED LIKE STAIRCASE is one of the top prog songs of the 90's. The new album initially really fell flat for me but I'm liking it more and more over time.
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

Regressive Metal Scene? Freudian Slip?

Haken, certainly. Discipline is of course great, but not that great ... I am eagerly waiting for someone to do negative review - Haken already have Bonnek's 3 stars review and two members posted 2-star reviews as well ... Discipline has no negative review :-)

I love Discipline and can't wait to see them at ROSFest. I've tried listening to Haken quite a few times as they come so highly recommended, but haven't gotten into them yet.
