With the vinyl version long-sold out and much in demand from fans,  Dark Essence Records are set to re-release TAAKE’s “…Doedskvad” in LP format.  The cover art for the LP differs from the original Dark Essence release, and is the one that was used for the limited edition splatter vinyl that was available on Perverted Taste, and which also sold out and is no longer available.

First released in 2005, and acknowledged by many to be a Black Metal masterpiece, “…Doedskvad” forms  the final part of TAAKE’s classic Trilogy, which includes the  “Nattestid” and “Bjoergvin” albums.  It was recorded at the legendary Grieghallen Studios, with guest appearances from Nattefrost (CARPATHIAN FOREST), NORDAVIND (ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST) and Taipan (ORCUSTUS).

The new vinyl edition will hit the streets on the 16th September and is  available to pre-order now from http://www.darkessencerecords.no/shop/doedskvad-2/  or http://taake.bandcamp.com/album/doedskvad , as well as from the Dark Essence Records  North American webshop at https://darkessence.aisamerch.com/item/41647

Taake Doedskvad Artwork PR
Founded by Hoest, one of the most  the most respected frontment in the genre, TAAKE’s Helnorsk Svartmetall sound remains true to the traditions of  Norwegian Black Metal, but never allows itself to become stale, introducing fresh, and often musically controversial , ideas with each album.  The use of a banjo on the track “Myr” on the band’s 2011 album “Noregs Vaapen, for example, initially caused consternation amongst  some of the diehard Black Metal fans,  but is now acknowledged as an eccentric  stroke of genius, and is one of the most anticipated songs at TAAKE concerts.

Following a string of festival appearances this summer, and with two North American tours behind them, TAAKE will hit the road in Europe during December for a series of dates with Niklas Kvarforth’s SHINING.  With these two dynamic and high profile frontmen taking to the stage on the same bill, the tour is understandably much anticipated by fans.   Dates will be announced shortly.
