I am always unhappily happy when Taake release a new album. I follow this project as from the release of Nattestid…, and each single album that did follow that magnificent debut was at least worth killing for. Kill! (it’s Kristmass-time, so I can’t help myself…)
When Stig Ese left Norwegian act Vreid, where he did the guitars (we’re talking about the year 2010), he had some specific ideas he wanted to canalise by means of an own project, which eventually was called Slegest. In 2012 he debuted with a self-called mini-album under this moniker, which was pretty positively accepted.
I never thought Norwegian top-act Aeternus would ever record some new stuff for frontman Ronny ‘Ares’ Hovland is involved with several other bands (mainly as live or session musician), but never start desponding, that’s the evil message!
