Taak is reputedly a Doom band, but I'd classify them as "light doom", as this sounds more like plain Heavy Metal with a little doom-ish atmosphere, but not much more doom than that.  The vocal style is clean to the bone, the singer reminding me a little of Danzig.  Like most bands on Nailboard Records, Taak sing in Estonia, so the lyrics will be lost of most outside their native country anyway (personally I always find it interesting to hear clean vocals in languages other than English.)  The keyboards are omnipresent here, not overblown but at the same time they sound out of place and could have been done without.  They have a little 70s psychedelic vibe that I never cared for.  Musically there's nothing to get too excited about - this is average heavy metal and it lacks some "punch", and I found I got bored a little after only a couple of successive listens.  It's not badly bad per se, but kind of bland.  The vocals help throw in a little variety, even partaking to a few up beat passages here and there.  So, overall an OK album, but you'll easily find much better in the genre.
