Having kicked off their 25th Anniversary celebrations with a show in the band's home town of Bergen, Taake's iconic frontman and founder , Hoest, has, over the years, honed the band's trademark "Helnorsk Svartmetall " sound to perfection. For a quarter of a century Hoest has always remained true to the spirit of Norwegian black metal, both in the studio and on the stage, and has never allowed the icy, dangerous edge, much beloved by black metal fans, to stagnate, keeping it fresh with surprising twists and turns.
Hoest's powerful presence, which dominates any stage on which he sets foot, coupled with a live lineup of experienced and highly skilled musicians, and an extensive back catalogue to draw from, has always ensured that Taake's performances are an experience that is guaranteed to enthral.
Aside from the upcoming European tour, Taake will be making a number of Festival and club appearances this year including Stockholm Slaughter in Sweden, Incineration Festival in the UK, Tuska Live in Finland, In Flammen Open Air in Germany, Beyond the Gates in Norway and the Colony Summer Fest in Italy.
Taake will also be heading for Japan to play a series of dates in July:
