Incineration Festival @ Camden, London

July 22nd, 2015

Incineration Festival

9th May, 2015
Various Venues, Camden

Review by Caitlin Smith

Incineration-15-Metal-Ha

Returning for another year after a sold out show in 2014, Incineration Festival returns bigger and better than ever. Expanding both in size and genre, 2015 saw the venues scattered across some of the largest and most infamous metal venues in Camden, hosting not only the usual black and death metal, but incorporating psychedelic and shoegaze acts into the mix. While some of the less traditional extreme acts may have come as a surprise, especially as last years headliner was Taake, nothing seemed out of place. The crowd seemed to agree as arriving the exchange, the queue stretched around the side of the black heart as revellers waited eagerly to collect their wristbands.

Taake, Helheim, and Black Crucifixion: Nosturi Helsinki Finland, April 26 2013

May 9th, 2013

Taake

with Helheim and Black Crucixion

The 26th of April
Nosturi Helsinki Finland

Taake visited the Steelfest Open Air festival last summer and unleashed their diabolical Norwegian black metal under the bright light of day. That environment didn’t create much of an evil atmosphere as Taake’s grim black metal required. Taake is celebrating their 20th anniversary and have been crisscrossing Europe and landed to have a gig in Helsinki with Helheim and Finland’s own Black Crucifixion as supporters.

Steelfest – Hyvinkaa Finland

June 6th, 2012

Steelfest – Hyvinkaa Finland

_MG_7760.JPG

The Finnish summer is a full of all kinds of festivals. Metal music has massive support amongst the Finnish festival audience. It is no surprise that a new festival is established when another vanishes. Steelfest is basically a new metal festival on the map even though the fest has been around for a while now. The organization of Steelfest used to run the fest as a private event for close friends and invited them to enjoy the metal madness. Until now Steelfest was expanded and doors were opened to the larger public. The location for the festival was tremendous when taking a glance at the location in general and above all the festival area. There were two stages where all the bands terrorized and unleashed hell on earth. The moving between these stages was easy and smooth. Of course, some smaller issues could be pointed out, but all in all the festival faced ultimate great success in every aspect.

TAAKE To Unleash New Album This November; Cover Art + Track Listing Revealed

September 14th, 2011

The past few years have seen Norwegian-based TAAKE busier than ever before with numerous tours around the world and increased productivity. With their fifth studio offering, Noregs Vaapen, TAAKE have refined their respected black metal sound, expanding this time around to include new elements. The album is filled with Hoest’s trademark riffs, melodies and vocals, but also embraces the unpredictable — more black ‘n’ roll grooves, ice-cold mellotrons and Southern-inspired banjo.It is without a doubt TAAKE’s most diverse and unique recording to date.

Noregs Vaapen was produced by Bjørnar E. Nilsen (Dead to this World, The Batallion, Helheim, Vulture Industries, etc.) and features guest appearances by Nocturno Culto (Darkthrone), Attila Csihar (Mayhem) and Demonaz (Immortal). View the cover art HERE.

Formed in 1993, TAAKE have built a loyal fanbase and an even more curious press profile. The controversial episodes of band leader Hoest have resulted in several incarcerations. The band’s previous album, simply titled Taake, was released in the U.S. via Century Media.

Noregs Vaapen Track Listing:
1. Fra Vadested Til Vaandesmed
2. Orkan
3. Nordbundet
4. Du Ville Ville Vestland
5. Myr
6. Helvetesmakt
7. Dei Vil Alltid Klaga Og Kyta

Noregs Vaapen will be released in North American via Candlelight Records on November 1, 2011.
