All four bands on this year’s tour are based in Bergen, home of DARK ESSENCE RECORDS itself. TAAKE is a band that over the years has been one of the definers of True Norwegian Black Metal. Using intense, unique, and unpredictable dynamics to create an atmosphere that ranges from ice cold Nordic melodies, to catchy necro riffs, it is the epitome of what a Black Metal band should be. With a line up of experienced and skilled musicians, any one of whom most bands would kill to have in their ranks, it is clear to see why fans are constantly clamouring for the chance to see TAAKE play live.

The embodiment of the true Viking spirit, HELHEIM very obviously incorporates the band’s love for its Norse heritage into both the music and the lyrics. They take this one step further in their live performances, with the use of VJ effects which create a spectacular backdrop for the music, illustrating each individual song with historic and symbolic images. HELHEIM will release the MCD “Aasgards Fall” in October, in time for the tour, and the much anticipated seventh full length album “Heiðindómr Ok Mótgangr” is expected to appear early next year, as well as a live DVD.

VULTURE INDUSTRIES is a Progressive Extreme Metal band that manages to take complex themes and structures, and make them immediately recognisable and catchy to produce a sound that has now become uniquely its own. Fronted by one of Norway’s foremost producers, Bjornar Nilsen, VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ live shows are a tour de force, with Nilsen’s manic stage presence drawing the audience into the music like some deranged master of ceremonies. The band recently released a vinyl edition of their 2007 full length album “The Dystopia Journals” and their second full length album, “The Malefactor’s Bloody Register”, hits the streets in September.

Intent on following a path that lies between Death and Black Metal, with a liberal sprinkling of progressive mindset, SULPHUR rose from the ashes of the nineties Black Metal outfit TAAKERIKET at the turn of the millennium. Comprising current and former members of bands such as GORGOROTH, AETERNUS, ENSLAVED and VULTURE INDUSTRIES, the SULPHUR of today is fiercer and more challenging than ever before. The musical landscapes that the band is willing to explore are limitless and the resulting album, “Thorns In Existence”, which was released in March of this year, is not afraid to challenge, thrill and destroy the listener. The band’s recent appearance at Terrorizer Magazine’s Grindhouse Norway event proved that on stage SULPHUR is an experience that will make even the most ardent head banger happy.
