Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Taake's fifth studio album, Noregs Vaapen (2011) sees the band refine their True Norwegian Black Metal sound, but also take a step further and include some new elements. The record 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 also invited his live line-up, consisting of Thurzur, V'gandr, Aindiachai and Gjermund to contribute on some songs, and guests 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. Intense, unique, and otherworldly!
