Taake is one-man band by Høst - vocals and guitars,from Norway - Bergen, formed in 1993. Taake means 'Fog', previous name - 'Thule'.
One of my favourites! Argh...respect to Høst.

What do you think about this band?

Apart from the notorious banjo solo (which I personally enjoyed and didn't think was all that strange, but maybe that's because I listen to a lot of Americana), it's business as usual. Which isn't a bad thing, because Taake really have maintained a consistent quality over the years. Right now I'm getting into all this new hipster BM, so I'll probably put this to the side and give it a proper chance later.

One thing about the band/project that is interesting is the fact that Høst was onces banned from playing in Germany due to him appearing on stage with a swastika painted on his chest. The music is quite good though.

Nothing like riling the ol' Germans.

The banjo solo is very good. It's like you're listening to some harsh evil-sounding black metal, and then the funny banjo part comes in... You can't stop laughing!!

What song is the banjo solo in? I don't think I've heard it and it sounds like something that shouldn't be missed?

Myr, somewhere past the halfway point IIRC. Only listened to it once so far.

Sorry I missed it. Personally I could have lived without it but at least it's inventive!

Yeah haha. I love that track. The album is not bad either. Not as good as Hordalands Doedskvad, but still nicely done.

I don't have anything against Germans but when it comes to history a lot of them surely are easy to piss off.

One issue I have with Taake though is that they tend to call their songs (at least on the older albums) I, II, III .. and so on. I've always found that a bit unimaginative and dull.

Personally I find the more recent albums boring.
But other than that, very compelling band

Banjos have no place in black metal, but otherwise good album

Yeah, back on this topic after 6 years. I will always prefer the older albums such as Nattestid, Bjoergvin and Doedskvad, though love the newer ones too; the banjo in Myr fits my taste good, it is not usual and unpredictable which I like, but of course it is not for narrow minded people. In the end of the day, cheers to Høst.
