TAAKE’s “Helnorsk Svartmetall ” sound, honed to perfection by TAAKE’s iconic frontman and founder Hoest, has been keeping the spirit of Norwegian Black Metal alive for a quarter of a century, both in the studio and on the stage, whilst never allowing the icy, dangerous edge, much beloved by Black Metal fans, to stagnate.
Hoest’s powerful presence, which dominates any stage on which he sets foot, coupled with a live lineup of experienced and highly skilled musicians, and an extensive back catalogue to draw from, has always ensured that TAAKE’s performances are an experience that is guaranteed to enthral.
TAAKE’s seventh full-length album “Kong Vinter” was released on Dark Essence Records at the end of 2017 and is available, along with the band’s other releases, and exclusive merchandise, from the following, as well as from all the usual retailers:
