Taake’s next move was to release the debut album ‘Nattestid Ser Porten Vid’ through the Wounded Love label. For these recordings session drummerTundra (a.k.a. Hans Helander) of Frostmoon and Tundra was employed.
A second album, ‘Over Bjoergvin Graater Himmerik’, witnessed the induction of a brand new band unit comprising of Gigantomachy guitarist C. Corax, Vendigeit bassist / keyboard player Keridwen and drummer Mutt of Gaahlskagg, Trelldom and Sigfader. However, studio time would be interrupted when Corax was imprisoned. The band finalised the recordings upon Corax’s release from jail in late December of 2000.
Corax would leave the fold in August of 2001 and Mutt followed suit in January of the following year. Nevertheless, Hoest regrouped for a tour of Germany, Taake now including Hoest on vocals and bass, Keridwen on guitar, Drakkhian of French acts Griffar and Black Dementia on second guitar and drummer T.H. Gjengedal.
In 2004, Taake signed a deal with Dark Essence Records and recorded their third album ‘Hordalands doedskvad’ in Grieghallen studios. ‘Doedskvad’ was released in 2005, again with Corax on guitar.
In 2006, Hoest was imprisoned for a period for assault (Hoest’s exact words were “I was reported to the police by an individual whose face I so elegantly rearranged due to his unacceptable behaviour”) putting Taake’s progress on hold.
With Hoest out of prison, Taake embarked upon a European tour with Koldbrann and Urgehal. The fourth full-length Taake album, simply titled ‘Taake’, was released in late 2008 after work was completed upon Hoest’s release from prison. An EP ‘Svartekunst’ was also released in early 2008, but was not intended as a preview of the newer full length album.
