Label: Dark Essence
Format: 7 LP Picture Disk Box Set
TAAKE’S 25TH ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION PICTURE DISC BOX SET CONTAINING ALL THE BAND’S FULL-LENGTH ALBUMS
If there is one thing that Hoest, the iconic leader and frontman of Norwegian Black Metallers TAAKE, has demonstrated with his trademark Helnorsk Svartmetall sound over the band’s twenty five year career, it is that it is possible for the genre not only to survive, but also to thrive and re-generate itself into something fresh and relevant, whilst losing none of its traditional feel.
And alongside TAAKE for many years now has been the Dark Essence Records label, based, like the band itself, in Bergen, and well known not only for its roster of long-established and extremely successful exponents of Black and Extreme Metal, but also for its unerring ability to sniff out the best of the new generation of bands coming up today.
Now, this hugely successful partnership between label and band has come up with a collaboration that will see the release of “7 Fjell”. This career-spanning, limited edition box set is a one-time only issue of 1,000 copies, and will contain seven picture discs that comprise all of TAAKE’s full-length albums to date. Each individual disc of seven tracks each (no bonus tracks), will come in a die-cut sleeve, and also included in the box will be a TAAKE slip mat for your record player! Of the seven albums, the last four have never before been released as picture discs.
“7 Fjell”, which translated means the “7 Mountains”, is a reference to both the seven mountains that surround Bergen, as well as the seven albums themselves. With artwork by HELHEIM’s H’grimnir, based on a photo by Peter Beste, the picture discs are as follows:
Noregs Vaapen (2011)
Stridens Hus (2014)
Kong Vinter (2017)
