Taake is a group of Black metal formed in 1993 with Bergen in Norway. Initially baptized Thule , the formation changes name at the end of two years. Taake , or tåke in a more modern C-W communication, means fog in Norwegian. This name evokes the mysterious and oneiric universe of the music played by the group.
In the beginning, the group is a one-man-band founded by Hoest , which composes the songs and interprets. In 1999, it records its first album of lasted logist, Nattestid ser porten vid , and is surrounded for that of musicians of session. This album is the first of a Trilogie whose topics are the Nature, the Mort, the Norwegian Folklore, the Nationalisme (without relationship with the National socialism) and the Nihilisme. Each album contains seven songs in the form of not titrated chapters, and the booklet is entirely written in Runes. The following album, Over bjoergvin graater himmerik , leaves three years later and the series closes on Hordalands Doedskvad (disastrous song of Hordaland) in 2005.
The " disastrous song of Hordaland"
The Black metal of Taake moves away from traditional Norwegian of the kind and is characterized by ternary tempo changing, sometimes , often rapid, of the melodies very present obtained thanks to a superposition of layers of guitar and voice, and the sporadic use of traditional instruments. The compositions are single because one cannot bring them closer to a precise kind: in spite of the melody lines, one is far from the symphonic Black metal and his grandiloquent keyboards, and the sometimes nihilist words move away it from the Pagan black metal. The step can on the other hand approach other Norwegian groups like Enslaved or Windir which, by their music, testifies to a great pride and a large respect for their traditions, their culture and Norwegian nature.
