Billed as Taake, Hoest, together withSvartulv andDim, thegroup cut the 1995 cassette ‘Manndaudsvinter’. A three track 7” EP, issued by Hoest’s own MosegroddProductions,arrived thesame year with Hoest handling vocals, bass and guitar and Svartulv retained as drummer. Taake’s nextmove wasto releasethe debut album ‘Nattestid Ser Porten Vid’ through the Wounded Love label. For these recordings sessiondrummerTundra(a.k.a. Hans Helander) of Frostmoon and Tundra was employed. A second album, ‘Over Bjoergvin Graater Himmerik’, witnessed the induction of a brand new band unitcomprisingofGigantomachy guitarist C. Corax, Vendigeit bassist / keyboard player Keridwen and drummer Mutt of Gaahlskagg,TrelldomandSigfader. However, studio time would be interrupted when Corax was imprisoned. The band finalised therecordingsuponCorax’s release from jail in late December of 2000. Corax would leave the fold in August of 2001 and Mutt followed suit in January of the following year.Nevertheless,Hoestregrouped for a tour of Germany, Taake now including Hoest on vocals and bass, Keridwen on guitar,Drakkhian ofFrench actsGriffar and Black Dementia on second guitar and drummer T.H. Gjengedal. In 2004, Taake signed a deal with Dark Essence Records and recorded their third album ‘Hordalands Doedskvad’inGrieghallenstudios. ‘Doedskvad’ was released in 2005. In 2006, Hoest was imprisoned for a period for assault (Hoest’s exact words were “I was reported to the police by anindividualwhose face I so elegantly rearranged due to his unacceptable behaviour”) putting Taake’s progress on hold. C.Corax hasalsobeen imprisoned, but for a longer period. With Hoest now out of prison, Taake has embarked upon a European tour with Koldbrann and Urgehal. The fourth full-length Taake album, simply titled Taake, was released in late 2008 after work was completeduponHoest’srelease from prison. An ep svartekunst was also released in early 2008, but was not intended as a preview of the newer full length album. « hide
