Having celebrated Taake‘s 20th Anniversary last year with the release of Gravkamre, Kroner og Troner, a 20-song, 2 CD collection of rarities, the contribution that frontman and founder Hoest has made to the Black Metal scene, both in terms of recording and performing, is immeasurable.  Time has not stood still for a band that is not afraid to take risks, but which has always remained true to its roots.  Whilst many new Black Metal bands have steadfastly refused to move away from the generic formula that frequently risks sinking the whole genre into a sea of platitudes and unoriginality, Taake has shown that Black Metal is still very much alive, fresh, original and thriving.

Vanhelga release digital single ahead of full-length album

Posted in News with tags , , , , on 24th February 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Today (24th February) sees Swedish band Vanhelga release their new digital single Där Evigheten Inväntar Mig ahead of their upcoming full-length album Längtan. Där Evigheten Inväntar Mig, which translated from the Swedish means “Where Eternity Awaits Me“, sets the tone for Längtan, which is scheduled for release in Europe on the 28th April in CD format on the Art of Propaganda label, and in vinyl format on Carnal Records on a date as yet to be confirmed. Där Evigheten Inväntar Mig is available direct from Vanhelga on Bandcamp at this location.

Vanhelga was formed in Linköping, Sweden in 2001 by J. Ottosson, aka 145188 (ex-Lifelover (live session musician), ex-Skogstron), who, unable to create the kind of music he really wanted to, found a group of like-minded musicians and together they set about bringing their vision to life.   Aside from Ottosson on Bass, Guitars and Vocals, Vanhelga‘s lineup consists of J. Gabrielson (Eskapi, ex-Lifelover) on Vocals, J. Ejnarsson (Taketh) and Wadström (ex-Skogstron) on guitars and D. Franzén on drums.
