“Et Hav Av Avstand» is the eighth full-length studio album from the legendary Norwegian Black Metal band TAAKE. It consists of four songs clocking in at 42 minutes, displaying some of the finest songwriting yet from this epic one-man band. Fierce, but melancholy. Vigorously old-school but also progressive, retaining that unfiltered sense of unique rawness that is synonymous with Hoest’s charismatic sound and musical identity.
TAAKE still manages to stay relevant and at the forefront of the genre and Hoest, who plays every instrument on the album, has ensured that the album is imbued with the unique TAAKE sound whilst at the same time developing it further. This is unmistakably TAAKE, and as always, an intense work that surprises and enthrals.
The album will be released on September 1st via Dark Essence Records. Fans got a taste of the album with the release of “Et Uhyre Av En Kniv” (“A Beast of a Knife”), the first single of its upcoming album.
“Et Hav Av Avstand” was recorded and produced by Bjørnar Erevik Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES) at his Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen and the cover photo was taken by Bende Csaba.
