Who else is a fan? They are quite possibly my favorite black metal band. Well, maybe not. I can't choose a favorite BM band. But they're damn good.

really weak stuff
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Don't they rely on stunts like painting swastikas on their chests and showing their D icks during shows?
#5
i say it because it just sounds pretty tame to me

not meaning to offend anyone lol

For the first time in a great time, I completely disagree.

Taake wrights some of the most haunting riffs while still remaining "simple" in that black metal way (Nattestid Ser Porten Vid !.... for example)

Good stuff.

Doedskvad is great, have a listen.
#14
I like the fact that there is some technicality in their music which make them out of common
#15
Taake are awesome. Nattestid is my favourite, closely followed by Doedskvad. For everyone who hates them because Hoest did the Swastika thing, then I'd say it worked perfectly.
#16
I really enjoy Taake's music, the three official albums are outstanding (Doedskvad has to be a favourite for me)... although the EP's etc leave a lot to be desired.
#17
Taake is one of my favourite bands ever.
Oh and yeah, STOP TALKING ABOUT THAT FVCKING SWASTIKA.
Hoest has explained everything on their website about it. READ IT.
#18
their last album is my favourite musically, Nattestid being a second.

to MH, yeah it may be tame, but was their point ever to be overly controversial and abrasive?

black metal needs to be abrasive imo

I see your point, and agree to an extent, but I think BM is one of the more expressive subgenres of metal, so it can do a lot of things beside that too, imo

perhaps.
i tend to only acknowledge the raw/ugly brand of BM and forget that stuff like burzum and emperor exists haha. if we divide BM into sympho/melodic bm, dsbm, nsbm/raw and war/blasphemy influenced then i guess i only really enjoy the last one and some raw/ns

Years later and Taake still manages to only release stripped down, quality albums. I'm sure there will be many detractors on these forums nowadays considering the general population here....

Nattestid is still my favorite but I'm nominating Høst as one of Black Metal's most reliable riff makers that is still currently active. Part II on Nattestid for example; That acoustic break the leads into that riff/lead combo sounds so fucking Nordic without the use of gross "Viking" stuff. The whole album sounds like Black Metal waving a Norwegian flag but unlike it's contemporaries, it comes off as believable thanks to those riffs.

Thoughts on Taake?

Also, part five on Nattestid.... almost at the three minute mark as it picks up with that trem picking and collapses into a muted shuffle for a second then just fades away... MMM.

I've honesty never given them a chance. Any thoughts on where I should start?

Anywhere. It's generally all the same, though some argue the S/T stands out as less Taake-ish than others. I started on Nattestid.
