NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS TAAKE ANNOUNCE US TOUR DATES

Regardless of whether they take place in an intimate club setting, or large festival arenas, TAAKE’s shows, like TAAKE’s albums, have, over the years,  garnered high praise from fans and critics alike, and, with last year’s visa woes behind them, and all band members having received their delayed visas, the band will be bringing their ” Helnorsk Svartmetall ” to the US once again for a series of 17 dates in March and April of this year.

Supporting TAAKE on the tour will be Seattle’s KING DUDE. Routing for the tour, which includes one date in Canada, is as follows.

03/24 New York, NY – Le Poisson Rouge
03/25 Boston, MA – Middle East
03/26 Philadelphia, PA – Underground Arts
03/27 Baltimore, MD – Soundstage
03/28 Pittsburgh, PA – Rex Theater
03/29 Lexington, KY – Cosmic Charlie’s
03/30 Chicago, IL – Bottom Lounge
03/31 Kansas City, MO – Riot Room
04/01 Denver, CO – Globe Hall
04/03 Salt Lake City, UT – Metro Music (no King Dude)

04/11 Vancouver, BC – Red Room

One of the most iconic bands on the Norwegian Black Metal scene, TAAKE’s seventh full-length album “Kong Vinter”, released on Dark Essence Records at the end of 2017,   further cemented the reputation of its enigmatic founder and frontman, Hoest, as one of those rare artists who manage to keep alive the old Norwegian spirit of Black Metal, in what has nowadays become a multi faceted, and fractured,  genre.  And, not only does he succeed in keeping the original genre alive, he also manages to breathe fresh life into it, with the introduction of new, and sometimes surprising, elements into the band’s music, whilst at the same time ensuring that it never loses that icy, dangerous, edge.

With a live lineup of skilled, and highly experienced musicians, TAAKE is  a force to be reckoned with on the live circuit.   Hoest’s charismatic persona and powerful presence dominate the stage, and his high octane performances,  combined with an  extensive back catalogue from which to draw the band’s set, means that TAAKE’s shows are not just unique, but also varied.

“Kong Vinter”  and other TAAKE releases and merchandise are available from all the usual retailers as well as from the folllowing:

Shining Taake TourPR

The pairing of two such iconic bands will provide an interesting mix for fans, with SHINING’s DSBM roots matched with TAAKE’s Norwegian Black Metal roots. Over the years both bands have taken the basic premises of their respective genres, and, whilst remaining true to them, have consistently kept them fresh by expanded and experimenting, sometimes taking them in directions that have surprised fans, but always maintaining the highest quality in terms of writing and musicianship. Both Kvarforth and Hoest are, in fact, acknowledged to be two of the most dynamic live performers today.

Taake PR

Whilst the name SLEGEST is perhaps not as familiar to fans as SHINING and TAAKE, the band has been earning rave reviews both for their studio output and for their live performances, earning them an ever-increasing fan base. In the wake of his departure from VREID, where he played guitar on four of the iconic band’s albums, Ese formed SLEGEST in 2010, and the band has since then perfected a special blend of classic heavy rock and old-school black metal that is both dark and sinister, whilst being propelled along by a down and dirty groove that is immediate and catchy. The band’s second full-length album will be released in November on Dark Essence Records.

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS TAAKE SET TO EMBARK ON THEIR FIRST NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

DARK ESSENCE RECORDS releases new EP from TAAKE called 'Kulde'.

Despite a history spanning over two decades, iconic Norwegian Black Metallers TAAKE have never previously toured in North America, but that is about to change with the band set to headline their first ever tour of the continent in June of this year. Joining them on the thirteen-date tour will be US bands WOLVHAMMER for the whole tour, and YOUNG AND IN THE WAY for selected dates. Routing as follows:

Founder Hoest has proved time and again that his reputation as one of the best frontmen around is more than well-deserved.

“Stridens Hus”, the band’s sixth-full length, was released on Dark Essence Records at the end of last year, and in the same year TAAKE also released the four-track “Kulde” MCD on Svartekunst Produksjoner and limited to 700 copies.

NIKLAS KVARFORTH’S SHINING TO HEADLINE RAZORS OVER EUROPE 2013 TOUR

Sweden’s SHINING is set to headline the “Razors Over Europe 2013 Tour” (a nod in the direction of the band’s 2007 tour “Razors Across Europe” with URGHEAL) which will take place over 17 dates during November and December of this year. Norwegian Black Metallers CREST OF DARKNESS, who, like management roster-mates SHINING, will be touring with a new album, and Swedish Thrashers STERBHAUS, are set to support the tour which is presented by Catapult Promotion. Routing confirmed so far for the “Razors Over Europe 2013 Tour” as follows:

NOVEMBER
22 – Tiyatrom, Berlin, Germany
23 – Skullcrusher, Dresden, Germany
24 – Viper Room, Vienna, Austria
25 – Gala Hala, Ljubljana, Slovenia
26 – Freak Out Club, Bologna, Italy
27 – TBA, Switzerland
28 – Ninkasi Kao, Lyon, France
29 – Secret Place, Montpellier, France
30 – Nouveau Casino, Paris, France
DECEMBER
01 – Effenaar, Eindhoven
02 – Magasin 4, Brussels, Belgium
03 – Electrowerkz, London, England
04 – Lomax, Liverpool, England
05 – Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton, England
06 – Voodoo Lounge, Dublin, Eire
07 – TBA, UK
08 – Ivory Blacks, Glasgow, Scotland

SHINING is a band that needs no introduction, particularly to fans of Black Metal and DSBM, for whom NIKLAS KVARFORTH’s unruly child has been a yardstick for superb musicianship, skilled writing, and a complete disregard for the artificial rules placed on the genres by a generation of fans who only became aware of Black Metal long after the band was formed back in 1996. Never a band to stick to a repetitive formula when playing live, SHINING’s performances are emotionally charged and “of the moment”, with audiences always wondering what to expect next from one of the scene’s most dynamic frontmen. SHINING has a new full-length album, “8 ½ – Feberdrömmar I Vaket Tillstånd”, due out on Dark Essence Records on the 23rd September, which features guest vocals from some of the elite of Black Metal including ATTILA CSIHAR (MAYHEM, TORMENTOR), MANIAC (SKITLIV, EX MAYHEM), GAAHL (GOD SEED, WARDRUNA, TRELLDOM, EX GORGOROTH),FAMINE (PESTE NOIRE) and PEHR LARSSON (ALFAHANNE, a track from which can be heard at http://soundcloud.com/dark-essence-records/shining-selvdestruktivitetens.

DARK ESSENCE RECORDS FIELDS A TOTAL OF SEVEN BANDS AT THIS YEAR’S INFERNO FESTIVAL

Bergen-based DARK ESSENCE RECORDS, the Norwegian label whose roster features not only some of the most respected and long- standing Black and Extreme Metal artists in the business, but also some of the most talented upcoming bands, showcases no less than seven of its bands at this year’s Inferno Festival. One of Europe’s foremost music festivals Inferno takes place annually in Oslo, and this year runs for four days from the 27th to the 30th March http://www.infernofestival.net

Opening night of the festival, which is effectively the club night, sees four of the bands appearing at Blå. Post Rockers KRAKOW (http://www.krakowofficial.com/), whose critically acclaimed sophomore album “diin” was release in Autumn of last year, kick off the evening at 21:00, followed by Melodic Extreme Metallers COR SCORPII (http://www.corscorpii.net/), who are currently working on their next album. Third band on will be VULTURE INDUSTRIES (http://www.vulture-industries.net/ ), a band whose skilled interpretation of avant-garde extreme metal, coupled with the highly theatrical and manic performance of frontman Bjornar Nilsen, makes for a fascinating live show. Topping the bill will be HELHEIM (http://helheim.com/ ) one of the original Norwegian Viking Metal bands who celebrate their historical roots both in their music and in the visual effects used in their live performances, and who have been together for over twenty years. Information about how to get to Blå can be found at http://www.blaaoslo.no/

Thursday 28th sees another band celebrate its twentieth anniversary when TAAKE headlines on the Rockefeller stage at 23:00. TAAKE frontman HOEST will also be holding a signing session at 15:00 in the Shadowland record store (http://www.shadowland.no/), Torggata 36 (200 meters from the Rockefeller). Formed in 1993, TAAKE’s contribution to the Norwegian Black Metal Scene has been considerable; with founder Hoest remaining true to his Black Metal roots, whilst still being able to breathe life and originality into the genre even after twenty years. The band recently released “Gravkamre, Kroner og Troner” (Tombs, Crowns and Thrones), a double Anniversary CD which feature exclusive new tracks as well as rare and previously unreleased material, alternative versions of previously released tracks and recordings that have, until now, only been available on vinyl. More information about TAAKE at http://taake.svartekunst.no/

AETERNUS will hit the Rockeffeler stage on Friday 29th at 19:45, a few days in advance of the release of “…And The Seventh His Soul Detesteth”, the band’s seventh full-length album. Founded in 1993 by guitarist and frontman Ares, AETERNUS has re-emerged seven years after the release of their last album “Hexaeon” with a new line up that comprises Ares on guitars and vocals, Phobos (GRAVDAL, MALSAIN) on drums and Specter on guitars. One of the pioneers of what the band calls “Dark Metal”, AETERNUS’ sound combines features from both Black Metal and Death Metal with superlative guitar playing and occasional haunting, melodic interludes. More information about AETERNUS can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Aeternusofficial

Saturday 30th, the last day of the festival, also sees the last of the DARK ESSENCE RECORDS bands to appear. HADES ALMIGHTY will play on the Rockefeller Stage at 19:45, and incidentally they were one of the bands who performed at the very first Inferno Festival in 2001. Apart from the occasional live appearance from the trio of Janto on Bass and Lead Vocals, Jorn on Guitars and Synth and Remi on Drums and vocals, things have been relatively quiet since the re-release in 2004 of their 2001 classic “The Pulse of Decay”, but the band has been busy behind the scenes working on the next album. More information about HADES ALMIGHTY can be found at http://www.hades-almighty.com/

Tracks from all the releases of the above bands on DARK ESSENCE RECORDS can be heard on SoundCloud at http://soundcloud.com/dark-essence-records/sets/dark-essence-records-bands-at or embedded using the following code:

NEW MUSIC VIDEO FROM NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS TAAKE

NEW MUSIC VIDEO FROM NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS TAAKE

With the MCD “Kveld” released in April as a taster for the band’s fifth full-length album “Noregs Vaapen”, and with the album itself hitting the streets on DARK ESSENCE RECORDS on the 20th September in Europe, and a release date set for the 1st November in the USA, TAAKE has today released a music video for a track from the album. Directed by Torgeir Ness Sundli, the video, for song “Nordbundet”, is a mix of live footage of the band interspersed with scenes of the countryside around TAAKE’s home town of Bergen, which have been filmed by founder and front man Hoest, who also produced the video. Audio production is by Bjornar E. Nilsen and the video debuts today on the website of the Norwegian Radio Station Pyro, at

“Noregs Vaapen” was a much anticipated release from the band that is now seen as one of the leaders of the Norwegian Black Metal scene. Whilst never losing TAAKE’s traditional sound and atmosphere with its icy riffs, its melodies redolent of Norway’s history, and distinctive vocals, Hoest has not hesitated to add a few twists that have taken everyone by surprise and kept the music fresh and original, including the use of the banjo on one track. The addition of guest appearances by some of Black Metal’s elite including Nocturno Culto (DARKTHRONE), Attila Csihar (MAYHEM), Demonaz (IMMORTAL) and Skagg (GAAHLSKAGG, DEATHCULT) as well as producer and VULTURE INDUSTRIES front man Bjørnar E. Nilsen have added a further dimension to “Noregs Vaapen”.

TAAKE will celebrate the release of the album with a special live set at Det Akademiske Kvarter in Bergen on the 30th September, and will then head out for a European tour in October with fellow Bergen Blackened Metallers BYFROST and the UK’s DONN THE PHILOSOPHY. Tour itinerary, including newly confirmed dates as follows:

October
