Taake US Tour PR1

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.
