Taake


The past few years, Taake has been more active than ever with tours around the world and a steady live line-up. The fifth studio album, “Noregs Vaapen”, sees the band refine their True Norwegian Black Metal sound, but also take a step further and include some new elements. The album is filled with Hoest’s trademark riffs, melodies and vocals, but also includes more unpredictable parts more black’n’roll grooves, ice cold mellotrons, and white trash banjo.
