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.

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

3rd Attempt PR1

It’s been well over two months since The 3rd ATTEMPT promised that the second instalment of their track-by-track concept video would appear within days of the December release on Dark Essence Records of their second full-length album “Egocidal Path”.   The two-part video was intended to give a  very personal insight into frontman and lyricist Ødemark’s  emotionally charged, and highly personal lyrics, with the first part describing the first four tracks on the album, and the second highlighting the last four tracks.

Unfortunately, a series of problems and mishaps caused the second part to be delayed until now, because, as Ødemark explains,  “Everything went fucking wrong.  It really did.   Every single step of the creation of this two-part video  was hit by either technical issues, a computer breakdown, lack of time, and of course, the inevitable noob mistake.  It could be said that the whole process was a series of disasters, but perhaps that’s why I couldn’t be more proud of the final outcome.

“This has been my first video creation ever, I had a vision and the motivation, and in order to make it happen I began learning all the technical stuff there is to learn about every aspect of  video making (animation, recording, lights, editing, post production, encoding etc.)  Add to this the fact that I had 0 Budget, so all the costs came from my already empty pocket.  But anyway, if there is no money, it has to be replaced by ingenuity and knowledge, and I wouldn’t let anybody interfere with it or give me a hand. I was set on proving I could do it all myself – and I did!”.

The  video can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/pZu7ZVRPmUo


A
The 3rd ATTEMPT was formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN) and, aside from Ødemark on vocals,  the band’s lineup is completed by Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) on drums.   “Egocidal Path” is the follow up to the band’s 2015 debut album “Born in Thorns”, and,  with it, according to Tchort, the 3rd ATTEMPT took a ” huge leap towards the true sound and identity of the band.  While our debut album “Born in Thorns” represented the CARPATHIAN FOREST era of our song writing, “Egocidal Path” is a newly written album that is more aggressive, tighter, and in-your-face.  It also showcases the fantastic drumming skills of Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) and the vocal range and creativity of Ødemark”

Ødemark  himself explains  what he sought to achieve with the two concept videos:  ” I wanted to give a visual context to our music, and,  at the same time,  give as much of an insight into the thinking behind the lyrics without it being a written explanation that nobody bothers to read anyway.    This lead me to creating what you are now seeing.  Yes, I do give a general idea of what each song is about, but I don’t set out to explain the lyrics line by line, I want those who are interested to discover  things for themselves.

“As regards the visual content,  I decided to create a two completely different scenarios. With the first video, I wanted to convey the sense of chaos associated with the self-destructive lifestyle aspect of Black & Roll, and to do this I had to adopt a “0 tolerance for political correctness”. So if the mere sight of the naked human body or drugs offends you in any way, if you do not want to  see the whole of what life involves  without getting “offended”, well, this one is not for you.  Life is, what life is, with or without your personal approval.   With its hints at decadence and personal corrosion, the first video contains a lot more symbolism.  The  barbed wire and the pain is real though,  and people can  decide for themselves what it all means.

“For the second Video, I wanted something radically different,  I didn’t  want people to have to drink twice from the same cup.   I needed to create a more realistic scenario as I wanted to depict depression, madness, confusion, mysticism,  and make it more personal.  I almost went too far with the cutting in the last scene, it all ended up with a pool of blood behind the scenes –  too much adrenaline, jeeze!”

3rd Attempt PR1

Whilst it has become fairly standard these for bands to release promo videos that feature excerpts of tracks from their upcoming releases, Norwegian Black Metallers the 3RD ATTEMPT have approached the whole thing in a slightly different way.  Not only does the video give fans  an insight into the sound of the album, but it also features a voice-over by  frontman and lyricist Ødemark himself, describing to fans the concept behind each track.

3rd Attempt Promovideo PR

The video, produced by Ødemark,  and featuring snippets of the first four tracks from “Egocidal Path”,  will be the first of two, with the second one, featuring the remainder of the tracks, appearing before the December 1st  release of the album on Dark Essence Records.  It can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/MnPPn74G1iU


A
“Egocidal Path” will be the second full length album from the band formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN) and  whose lineup also includes Ødemark on vocals and Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) on drums.  It will, as Tchort recently explained, be an album that more clearly defines the band’s sound:

“With “Egocidal Path” we take a huge leap towards the true sound and identity of the 3RD ATTEMPT. While our debut album “Born in Thorns” represented the CARPATHIAN FOREST era of our song writing, “Egocidal Path” is a newly written album that is more aggressive, tighter and in-your-face.  It also showcases the fantastic drumming skills of Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) and the vocal range and creativity of Ødemark, allowing the listener to slip into his personal universe of wrath, ego, human spite and the glory of suicide”.

With artwork by the Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares, tracklisting for “Egocidal Path” is as follows:

  1. Blood, Dope and Black N Roll
  2. Into the Light
  3. Reflections about Knives
  4. Egocide
  5. I’ll do it now
  6. The Disciples
  7. Black Metal Alchemist
  8. The Oath

With the release of TAAKE’s “Kong Vinter” less than three weeks away, Dark Essence Records have today debuted a track from what will be the seventh full-length album from one of Norway’s Black Metal elite. The track ” Inntrenger” can be heard below as well as at the following:

Bandcamp:  https://taake.bandcamp.com/album/kong-vinter
SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/dark-essence-records/taake-inntrenger
Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/2XIkWr8cCHspvC9ovxoAuV


A
You could never mistake “Kong Vinter” for anyone’s work other than that of founder and frontman Hoest,  whose body of work,  which spans over two decades, coupled with his magnetic stage presence, has made  him into an icon for Black Metal fans the world-over.  As is usual with TAAKE,  there has been a three year break between albums,  and, once again playing all the instruments himself, Hoest has produced  an album which, whilst losing none of the atmosphere that makes TAAKE so recognizable, still manages to surprise with its underlying nasty groove that can, at times, have an almost devilish playfulness about it. It is deceptively familiar to the ear, yet it is unpredictable. It is progressive, and yet straight  forward.  And of course there are always some elements of  rock’n’roll, the Devil’s music itself.

Set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 24th November, “Kong Vinter” was recorded and produced by Bjornar Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES) at his Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen.  With a running time of 55 minutes and with photography by Christopher Zibell and artwork by Tom Korsvold of Coverart,  track listing is as follows:

  1. Sverdets Vei
  2. Inntrenger
  3. Huset i Havet
  4. Havet i Huset
  5. Jernhaand
  6. Maanebrent
  7. Fra Bjoergegrend mot Glemselen
  8. On Top (De Press cover, bonus track on the vinyl edition)

TAAKE will be appearing at the “Kong Vinter” Release Party at the John Dee in Oslo, Norway, on the 1st December.  Also appearing will be Dark Essence Records label-mates HELHEIM, along with ASAGRAUM.

3rd Attempt PR2

With the release of their second full-length album, “Egocidal Path” on Dark Essence Records,  a month away, the 3RD ATTEMPT have given fans a first taste of what to expect by releasing a video of a track from the album.  The video, by Lukas Jaszak , for the track “I’ll Do It Now” can be seen at https://youtu.be/Ca0WwsIq0cs


A
Commenting on the track itself, guitarist/bassist Tchort had this to say:

“Musically this song differs from anything we did on the first album, or, indeed, on “Egocidal Path” itself for that matter.  It’s melodic but old school, and contains some breaks that are perhaps a bit untraditional as regards Black Metal as I know it.  And knowing that the lyrics are actually very deep emotions and personal experience made flesh, so to speak, the impact this has on the melody and the depth of feeling expressed in the vocals is that much stronger”.

It is the strength of the emotions expressed in the lyrics that surprised video maker Jaszak  and affected the way in which he  approached the making of the video, as he explains:

“I like to work at night, but that proved impossible with this particular song with its seemingly simple, self-explanatory lyrics.  But they grow on you without you realizing and before you know it, you’re thinking about ending it all.  I know it sounds naive, but  try listening to this on repeat, at night, with the words flashing on the screen – on and on.

“I tried to make this video as simple as the message itself, whilst portraying the feelings of chaos and desperation that consume the  main character.  We definitely did not want to get too literal with the subject here, and we chose to ignore the blood and razors and all the usual worn out clichés, and focus instead on emotional chaos.  Although suicide may seem like an easy way out for most, I feel instead that it is a horrifying vortex of tangled emotions, and  both the song and the video show this”.

Given the intensity that both Tchort and Jaszak picked up on in both Ødemark’s lyrics and his performance, the vocalist reveals the anguish behind the song:

“When I first heard the music for “I’ll Do It Now” played in the studio, I felt that the atmosphere surrounding it was the perfect environment in which to talk about how, at the age of 12, I made a serious attempt at killing myself for the second time.   I could have just described the scene and been obvious about it, but the music awakened something in me and I decided  instead to write about what went on in my head, without resorting to any poetic artifice, artistic pretensions or judgment whatsoever.  I therefore chose to regress to that particular moment in my life, something which, incidentally, was much harder to do than I had expected, and write the lyrics using the thoughts exactly as they went through my mind.

” I had to open myself up to being  as vulnerable as possible in order to once again become that child who had decided to take his own life, and to write down his thoughts with total honesty.  Some of it might sound clichéd, or even naive and childish, but I needed to keep the truth undistorted in order to create the purest, most honest piece of art possible, and align that honesty with my vision of what Black Metal should be”

Formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN), the duo recruited Ødemark on vocals and Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) on drums, and released the band’s debut album “Born in Thorns” on Dark Essence Records in 2015.  As Tchort recently explained, that album still had some of the remnants of the CARPATHIAN FOREST era, whilst “Egocidal Path”, on the other hand,  was written with a fresh approach,  resulting in an in-your-face album that is much tighter and much more aggressive, with Ødemark’s lyrics and vocal range dragging the listener kicking and screaming into his own skewed universe.

With artwork by the Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares, tracklisting for “Egocidal Path” is as follows:

  1. Blood, Dope and Black N Roll
  2. Into the Light
  3. Reflections about Knives
  4. Egocide
  5. I’ll do it now
  6. The Disciples
  7. Black Metal Alchemist

Crest of DarknessPR1

Black Metallers CREST OF DARKNESS, whose founder and frontman Ingar Amlien is an acknowledged expert on Vampirism and the Occult, and who is often called upon by the Norwegian media to comment on such matters, are celebrating Halloween with the release of a lyric video for the track “The Noble Art”.

The video, directed and edited by Goffredo Passi for EstremArte videoproduzioni, features the  extraordinary zombie foetus sculptures created by the Italian artist Andrea Falaschi can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/mzwd_AWw8jY


A
Released in December 2016 on My Kingdom Music, “Welcome the Dead” is the perfect illustration of the kind of wide-ranging appeal that CREST OF DARKNESS has built for itself over the years, with a sound that encompasses the Black, Death and Metal genres.  It is, according to Amlien, an album that has special significance for him personally, having put a lot of himself and his deepest emotions into creating an album that reflects the kind of ritualistic atmosphere that pervades the band’s live performances.

CREST OF DARKNESS’ lineup of  Ingar Amlien (CONCEPTION, ROQUEFIRE,  AMLIEN’s INFERNO) on bass and vocals, Rebo on guitars, Bernhard (ex- PALE FOREST) on drums are now working on what will be their eighth full-length album, and more information about the band can be found at http://www.facebook.com/crestofdarknessofficial

Favourite

“Welcome the Dead” was released on My Kingdom Music in both CD and Digital and a  double LP, which will feature a special bonus track, will be released shortly in collaboration with Metal Age Productions, Kristallblut Records and Supreme Music Creations.  It is available from all the usual retailers as well as direct from My Kingdom Music at http://smarturl.it/DEAD-CD in CD and 2LP formats and in digital format at http://smarturl.it/WELCOME-THE-DEAD.

Nine tracks tracing the history of CREST OF DARKNESS, can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page at http://soundcloud.com/crest-of-darkness/sets/crest-of-darkness,  whilst the official playlist, which includes the  band’s entire catalogue can be heard on Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/user/patriciathomas/playlist/7hW4CvcmbBGGriJtJBryx5
