TAAKE AND BYFROST JOIN FORCES FOR EUROPEAN TOUR

Posted: August 29, 2011 in BYFROST, DARK ESSENCE RECORDS, OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASES, TAAKE

Two generations of Bergen bands are set to tour Europe in October, bringing with them the blackened sounds and performances that makes Norway’s second largest city one of the foremost producers of extreme metal.   Headlining will be TAAKE, formed in 1993 by Hoest, one of the most dynamic front men in Black Metal.  With a plethora of releases and a wealth of stage experience behind them TAAKE has become one of the leading Black Metal bands playing today.  Supporting will be BYFROST who already have two full length albums to their credit, and whose aggressive black ‘n roll, combined with elements of thrash, have earned them a large fan base following recent appearances at some of the top European festivals.  Also on the tour will be the UK’s DONN THE PHILOSOPHY.  Tour dates as follows:

October
Fri 14 – The Rock, Copenhagen (DK)
Sat 15 – TBA
Sun 16 – Baroeg, Rotterdam (NL)
Mon 17 – Werkstat, Cologne (DE)
Tue 18 – Biebob, Vosselaar (BE)
Wed 19 – Underworld, London (UK)
Thu 20 – Glazart, Paris (FR)
Fri 21 – Club 45, Zug (CH)
Sat 22 – Init, Rome (IT)
Sun 23 – Rock Planet, Ravenna (IT)

Both bands will be touring with new releases.  TAAKE’s “Noregs Vaapen” is due for release on Dark Essence Records in mid September, whilst BYFROST’s “Of Death” was released on AFM records in June of this year.  More information about TAAKE can be found at http://taake.svartekunst.no/ and BYFROST at http://www.myspace.com/byfrostmetal
