TAAKE “Kong Vinter”

“Kong Vinter”
(Dark Essence Records)

Battle Helm Rating

TAAKE is the quintessence of Norwegian black metal today. Hoest that does everything on this album has managed to create a really cool black metal album. This the seventh one is filled with stuff that you expect from Norwegian black metal. But it does not end there. Just like Enslaved there is more than meets the ear on this album. If you are allergic to progressive tones you better stay the hell away from this because this is as far away from necro as you will get. TAAKE has on this album managed to merge classic Norwegian black metal with the progressive. And only as it could have been done in Norway. This one surprised me much more than I thought it would. A really, really cool album. Anders Ekdahl
