Taake - New Album Details Revealed

The day just got better for Taake fans. The black metal band and its founder Hoest is now back with a seventh full-length album and the details have been revealed. Titled Kong Vinter (King Winter), the new album is set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 24th of November in digipak CD, digital and vinyl formats. True to form, Hoest has spent three years working on Kong Vinter, ensuring that the album is imbued with the unique Taake sound, whilst at the same time taking it even further.

According to the press release, "it is deceptively familiar to the ear, yet it is unpredictable as it winds its way sinuously through a soundscape that only a mother could love. A soundscape underscored by a nasty groove, that at times can seem devilishly playful. The result is an album that is both progressive and straight forward, with a touch of the devil's own music - rock'n'roll , making it unmistakably Taake. It is, in fact, an illustration as to why, for over two decades, Hoest has succeeded in remaining relevant and at the forefront of the genre."

Kong Vinter, on which Hoest plays all the instruments himself, was recorded and produced by Bjornar Nilsen (Vulture Industries) at his Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen. With a running time of 55 minutes, photography by Christopher Zibell and artwork by Tom Korsvold of Coverart, the tracklist is as follows:

01. Sverdets Vei
02. Inntrenger
03. Huset i Havet
04. Havet i Huset
05. Jernhaand
06. Maanebrent
07. Fra Bjoergegrend mot Glemselen
08. On Top (De Press cover, bonus track on the vinyl edition)

Glockenspiel, I heard
This is this the water, and this is the well
Drink full and descend
The horse is the white of the eyes, and dark within
