Taake US tour 17 PR1

More information regarding supports will be issued in April

With their signature Helnorsk Svartmetall sound, TAAKE have always stayed true to their Black Metal roots , but the band’s iconic founder and frontman, Hoest, has  refused to allow himself to get bogged down in the formulaic writing that plagues so many bands in the genre today – bands both old and new.  His approach has always been one of trying something new, and original, even if it’s something totally unexpected, and it is this that has kept TAAKE at the top of their game for over two decades.

With his formidable stage presence, Hoest has acquired a quasi-legendary status amongst fans, and the band’s return to the US will hopefully give more of TAAKE’s followers a chance to see one of Norway’s most admired and influential Black Metal bands.

Aside from the US tour, TAAKE will play four dates in the UK in April, and has  already been confirmed for various festival appearances over the coming year.

TAAKE

With over two decades of experience, both in the studio and on the stage, TAAKE, or more precisely,  the band’s formidable founder and frontman Hoest, has acquired almost legendary status.  Never abandoning the origins of Norwegian Black Metal, Hoest still manages to innovate and surprise fans the world-over, and, in a long-lasting collaboration with Dark Essence Records, consistently produces albums that are considered to be classics in their genre.

Hoest’s powerful persona and mesmerising stage presence makes TAAKE much sought after on the live circuit, with 2017 already gearing up to be as busy as the previous year.   As well as the four UK dates have already been confirmed for various festival appearances over the coming year.

fen-pr1

FEN

Formed in early 2006 with the goal of producing Atmospheric Black Metal that incorporates elements of post-rock,  FEN have, since then, found themselves at the vanguard of a resurgent UK Black Metal scene.  With an EP, four full length albums, several splits and compilations, two European tours and numerous appearances at prestigious festivals under their belts, FEN’s fifth full-length album “Winter”, which is set for release on Aural Music on the 17th March,  is  the band’s most ambitious, and yet most fundamental expression, yet.   FEN recently debuted a track from the album, on the strength of which two limited edition versions of “Winter” are already close to being sold out more than a month before release date.  The track “I (Pathway)” can be heard below and at https://fenuk.bandcamp.com/album/winter

de-profundis

DE PROFUNDIS

DE PROFUNDIS started life in 2005 playing a haunting blend of Doom and Death metal, but, by 2010, whilst still retaining the sombre, melodic atmosphere the band’s sound became much more progressive in nature.  Now, after  years of honing their art, the sound of DE PROFUNDIS has been streamlined into concise, technical cacophonies that fuse ferocious Blackened Death metal with ethereal progressive overtones.  DE PROFUNDIS’ extensive stage experience guarantees that this tour will be one too good to miss.

More information about DE PROFUNDIS can be found at https://www.facebook.com/deprofundistheband/  and on the band’s website at http://deprofundistheband.com

DE PROFUNDIS’ music can be heard at https://deprofundis.bandcamp.com

With their third full-length album “Det Nya Svarta” set for release on the 7th April on Indie Recordings,  Sweden’s ALFAHANNE have revealed a track from the album.  Titled “Stigmata”, the band explained  that the track “is about our home town. How you are born full of hope for the future, but the raw climate destroys you and the town drags you down”.

“Stigmata” can be heard below and on YouTube at https://youtu.be/uKg2mBrn-T0


x
Recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne’s Pehr Skjoldhammer and Mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis, “Det Nya Svarta” follows the ALFAHANNE tradition of including some high profile artists making guest appearances.  Artists which in the past have included  TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr,  KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT, and Nattfursth from SORHIN, not just on their first two albums, but also live on stage

Guests making an appearance on “Det Nya Svarta” include KAMPFAR’s Dolk, David Lindh from YVONNE AND BRODER DANIEL,  Sanrabb from GEHENNA and Nadine Skjoldhammer.  Tracklisting for “Det Nya Svarta” is as follows:

1. Satans verser (with Dolk from KAMPFAR)
2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from YVONNE & BRODER DANIEL)
4. Klubb 27
5. Mitt mörker är mörkare än ditt (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)
6. Dödsmaskin (with Sanrabb from GEHENNA)
7. Även hund har sin dag
8. Svarta får
9. Det nya svarta

Formed in Eskilstuna in 2010,  the self-styled “Alfapokalyptic Rockers” burst onto the scene with energy, exuberance , and an impressive swagger, which, coupled with a fan-friendly attitude quickly earned them respect,  and an ever-increasing, and dedicated, following.  ALFAHANNE’s debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps” appeared on Dark Essence Records in 2014 and  was followed by “Blod Eld Alfa” in 2015.

The band’s lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a couple of decades of experience under their belts in bands like VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT.  Together they have created a sound that mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll that is unmistakably ALFAHANNE’s.

Frontman Skjoldhammer recently explained that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE are continuing  to explore the dark side of mankind: “Alfahanne’s lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally…. Equally useless.”

“Det Nya Svarta” is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from http://shop.indierecordings.no/artist/16189–alfahanne and in Digital format from https://itunes.apple.com/no/album/det-nya-svarta/id1202165056?

Confirmed live appearances for ALFAHANNE include the By:Larm Festival in Oslo, Norway in March and In Flammen Open Air in Torgau, Germany in July.  More dates to be announced shortly.

Sweden’s self-styled “Alfapokalyptic Rockers” ALFAHANNE have inked a deal with Indie Recordings, who are set to release the band’s third full-length album “Det Nya Svarta” on the 7th April.

Hailing from Eskilstuna, ALFAHANNE burst onto the scene in 2010 with the avowed intent to bring back a sense of danger to Rock n Roll.  Playing what the band calls “Alfapocalyptic Rock”, which mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll, ALFAHANNE have created their own style of music, full of the kind of swagger and attitude that earns them plaudits from critics and fans alike.

Add to this the fact that ALFAHANNE were, right from the word go, able to attract high calibre guests such as  as TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr,  KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT, and Nattfursth from SORHIN, not just on their first two albums, but also live on stage, and have continued this enviable the tradition with “Det Nya Svarta” , and you know you have something pretty special.

The band’s lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a couple of decades of experience under their belts in bands like VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT.  Bringing that experience to the studio ALFAHANNE released their debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps” on Dark Essence Records in 2014.  This was followed by “Blod Eld Alfa” in 2015, and,  within a short two-year period , ALFAHANNE’s high energy, exuberance, and easy going, friendly  interaction with the fans (both on and off the stage) brought the band to the attention of audiences world-wide, garnering them a legion of fans.

Frontman Skjoldhammer explains that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE continues to explore the dark side of mankind: Alfahanne’s lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally…. Equally useless.” 

“Det Nya Svarta”  was recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne’s Pehr Skjoldhammer and Mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis.  Guests on the album include KAMPFAR’s Dolk, David Lindh from YVONNE AND BRODER DANIEL, Sanrabb from GEHENNA, (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)

Commenting on their collaboration with Indie Recordings ALFAHANNE had this to say:  “We think Indie is a natural choice for us and we are very pleased to be collaborating with them. Now we just hope that they are aware that they have thrown a bone to a dog, fed the beast, poured gasoline on the  fire and unchained a monster.” 

“Det Nya Svarta” is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from http://shop.indierecordings.no/artist/16189–alfahanne and in Digital format from https://itunes.apple.com/no/album/det-nya-svarta/id1202165056?

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.

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

Tracklisting for “…Doedskvad” as follows:

  1. Hordalands Doedskvad part I
  2. Hordalands Doedskvad part II
  3. Hordalands Doedskvad part III
  4. Hordalands Doedskvad part IV
  5. Hordalands Doedskvad part V
  6. Hordalands Doedskvad part VI
  7. Hordalands Doedskvad part VII

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.
