Taake to release limited edition box set with discography re-issued as picture discs!

As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, Bergen’s true Norwegian black metal band Taake are set to perform at Umeå festival House of Metal in March 2019.  Dark Essence Records has now announced that they will release a career-spanning vinyl box set with all seven full-length Taake albums re-issued as picture discs.

“7 Fjell”, as the limited edition (1000 copies) box is titled, is set for release on December 7th. Each individual disc (no bonus tracks) will come in a die-cut sleeve. Also included in the box will be a TAAKE slip mat!

Pre-orders can now be made from BandCamp, the Dark Essence Record Webshop or the US Webshop.

7 Fjell

If there is one thing that Hoest, the iconic leader and frontman of Norwegian Black Metallers TAAKE, has demonstrated with his trademark Helnorsk Svartmetall sound over the band’s twenty five year career, it is that it is possible for the genre not only to survive, but also to thrive and re-generate itself into something fresh and relevant, whilst losing none of its traditional feel.

Now, the successful partnership between label and band has come up with a collaboration that will see the release of “7 Fjell”. This career-spanning, limited edition box set will be a one-time only issue of 1,000 copies, and will contain seven picture discs that comprise all of TAAKE’s full-length albums to date. Of the seven albums, the last four have never before been released as picture discs.

“7 Fjell”, which translated means the “7 Mountains”, is a reference to both the seven mountains that surround Bergen, as well as the seven albums themselves. With artwork by HELHEIM’s H’grimnir, based on a photo by Peter Beste, the picture discs are as follows:
