Taake Announces "Stirdens Hus" Release

Following a European release at the end of 2014, Taake's "Stridens Hus" will come to North America via Candlelight Records on February 10th, 2015. The label comments:

"Every third year, Norway’s Taake sets a new level of perfection for black metal. On this, their sixth album, the five-piece once again reinvents their wicked wheel. Founded by vocalist Hoerst in 1993, the Spelleman Award Nominee (Norwegian Grammy), has amassed a sizeable worldwide following. Hoerst avoids the media, making live performances and the limited interview access part of the band’s underground appeal. The North American release follows Europe but fans across these collective states will rejoice on its domestic arrival."

Norwegian black metal veterans Gorgoroth have announced that vocalist, Pest, has been fired from the band with immediate effect after he refused to make the band his top priority. The band will still be honouring its touring comittments however. A message from the group reads as follows:

"Out of respect for and loyalty to Gorgoroth's audience and collaborators, Infernus (guitar) has kicked Pest out of the band, effective immediately. This after Pest informed the band that he would not be prioritizing doing the upcoming Latin American tour after all, just two weeks before the band was set to depart for Brazil.

"Infernus has decided that the tour will go on as planned, though, and Hoest of Taake will replace Pest as vocalist on the tour starting on September 7th.

"As for the next Gorgoroth studio album, Instinctus Bestalis, vocal duties will be handled by a Serbian Satanist known as Atterigner, of the band Triumfall (Forces of Satan Records)."
