Label: Dark Essence Records – HOEST007 / KAR064
Released: September 19, 2011
Style: Black Metal
Norwegian black metal has emulated itself inside and out, and Taake creates something fresh and breathtaking with it. The fifth 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. With its intense, unique, Norwegian and otherworldly sound, Taake delivers their most diverse and unique album to this date!
Recommended for fans of Darkthrone, Tsjuder, Gorgoroth, Carpathian Forest, Kampfar, Satyricon.
