Taake - Noregs Vaapen (CD)
The fifth Taake studio album, “Noregs Vaapen”, sees the band refine their True Norwegian Black Metal sound, but also take a step further and include some new elements. The album is filled with Hoest’s trademark riffs, melodies and vocals, but also includes more unpredictable parts more black’n’roll grooves, ice cold mellotrons, and white trash banjo.
Hoest has invited his live line-up, consisting of Thurzur, V’gandr, Aindiachai and Gjermund to contribute on some songs, and also have guest appearances from people like Nocturno Culto (Darkthrone), Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Demonaz (Immortal), Bjørnar Nilsen (Vulture Industries) and Skagg (Gaahlskagg, Deathcult). Hoest himself is behind all music, lyrics, instruments and vocals as usual.
