Noregs Vaapen


Taake, to put it simply, is Norwegian Black Metal that always delivers. While the sounds does change somewhat from album to album, the band's sound remains strongly rooted in second-wave Black Metal. Noregs Vaapen mixes the raw with the melodic, harsh Black Metal with plain old school Heavy Metal and a dash of Thrash, all glued together by BM screeches that reverberate through the speakers and freeze the blood. It's cold and dark as fuck, yet incredibly catchy for the genre, thanks to the subtle-but-not-too-much-so melodic work which finds its way to the listener's ears through the otherwise abrasive music.

Mid to fast-paced, heavy, cold, dark, melodic, sometimes melancholic, Noregs Vaapen is a journey in hell filled with varied, interesting Black Metal that just begs for repeated plays.
