Taake is essentially the one-man project by U. Hoest that manages to capture all the best elements of any black metal album.
This album is very raw like an early Darkthrone or Satyricon release, and it is this same intensity that Taake manages to harness - without 'trying to hard', integrity kept in tact.
I would call this album Melodic-Black-Folk-Forest-Metal in that the melodies (like ulver and Kvist) seem to have folky origins. Mr.Hoest never seems to linger on a riff too long before it evolves- instead the emotions surge on. Surge they do too, as this is extremely passionate and full music, beautiful and grotesque, violent and melodic. It is fast, epic, composed as well as anything by emperor. Oh and the bass guitar is wonderful, it is rare hear bass utilized so well in a black metal release, let alone it often being the source of heart-wrenching melodies.
There is anger here, like desperation; for me this album creates a sense of urgency, and a sense of being 'in the moment', and we soar with the music. It's kind of like dissection in the sense that the composition is so polished (not in the Cradle or Dimmu sense); it seems Taake knew exactly what we/he wanted and he's done it all. He's refined all those great black metal moments- blast beats used in the correct context, Garm style (aaaah) chants, excellent screams, sweeping guitar like cold wind, dark drums (and bass courtesy of Tundra) like pounding winter rain. All the "gimmicks" you could wish for...they just aren't used as gimmicks on this album...this album is very "true" and all parts are integral to the overall 'vibe' of the album.
(The only things missing are an intro with moaning wind, and wolve howls. Everything else that you've heard in a BM album, its ALL here.

This is my favorite BM cd 8 April 2001
By "sadistik" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Out of all the metal I own, this is my favorite BM cd. From the time I first heard it, it has had a place in my heart. All of the other reviewers mention a heavy old-school debt, but I disagree. When I think "old-school" Norwegian I think of good albums (Wrath of the Tyrant, Deathcrush, etc.) that were hampered by two things:1)the sometimes immature and/or amateurish moments that were frequent and 2)A distinct commitment to "extreme" images. I never liked the whole "let's dress up and play scary" feel of the BM image, but I LOVE the music. Taake has managed to put out a phenomenal album without ANY ill-fitting or amateurish sounding moments (quite a feat for a debut, huh?). And while the production is SOMEWHAT raw (but VERY audible at any level and very fitting, in my opinion), the music is extremely well polished and maturely written and played. Also there are no "walking in a forest/cemetary at night looking sad/miserable/forlorn" photos, which is a plus, rather a minimalist layout and design that actually sets the mood better than corpse-paint and tombstones (who woulda thought, right?). Exceptional, first rate stuff. For those who love metal music and don't need Century Media's Image Budget. Fantastic.

Taake (fog) 8 Aug 2000
By Mark Matyskiewicz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First of all, this album does not appeal to people that like their blackmetal clean and polished in the production department. That is really too bad, because this album is exceptional. Recorded at Grieghallen Studio by Pytten (Also famous for Emperor's "In the Nightside Eclipse", and the first few Burzum albums to name a few), this piece of work has that freezing nordic atmosphere comparable to early Emperor and Darkthrone using no keyboards at all. The riffs are extremely melodic but crusty at the same time, and the vocals are absolutely grim, plus some clean tone in the first track. One of the more interesting songs is the instrumental in the middle of the album, which is just brilliant if you ask me. This is definitely true Norwegian Blackmetal at its best, don't overlook this release or the next one either which I hear is upcoming!

OLD SCHOOL 13 Mar 2000
By "devil-boy" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is probably one of the best CD's released in 1999. Not bad for a bands debut. These guys play old school BLACK METAL. Like the good old days of IMMORTAL, touches of MAYHEM and a dab of old ULVER. They have taken the blueprint of old and given a fresh shot in the arm. Well played and executed.

Nattestid Ser Porten Vid. 16 Oct 2010
By NorCal Underground (MetalHedJuggalo) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I will say that taake is my favorite black metal band ever besides Darkthrone, Burzum, and Mayhem. But I say that this Nattestid ser Proten Vid is the "Best Black Metal Album" I ever heard. All the tracks has a atmosphere to them that takes you to your own world. For a debut album from 1999. Nattestid ser Porten Vid is the Must own Norwegian Black Metal Album.

First-Class Norwegian Black Metal from TAAKE 11 Jan 2007
By J. Ronnel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Taake ("fog" in Norsk) is able to create an atmosphere of anger & depair & passion. A very expressive album. At the same time, very cold. It does have a Viking-Metal and Folk influence.

If you like Emperor and Burzum, dont miss this one.
