“Noregs Vaapen” on vinyl!

December 12th, 2011 by Web Master

HOEST007LP_Taake-Gatefold.indd

The much anticipated vinyl version of Taake’s “Noregs Vaapen” is finally available for pre-order from our store!

Limited to 1000 copies, this gatefold double 180g LP features different cover art, A2 poster and a cover version of the classic Emperor song “I am The Black Wizards” as bonus track (featuring Attila Csihar of Mayhem and Ivar Bjørnson of Enslaved).

This 5th studio album is a firm step ahead, strengthening the glorious Taake essence whilst including a few surprising elements as well as guest performers such as Nocturno Culto (Darkthrone) and Demonaz (Immortal).

The limited digipak CD was released in September 2011 and the reviews speak for themselves:
