By far this is Taake's best release to date. Noregs Vaapen is intense, fast paced Black Metal. I liked at better than the other albums because I felt all the pieces of the music fit best here. Guitars, drums, vocals all sounded dialed in to me - not production value, just that all the music flowed well together. Black metal fans won't find anything too unconventional here - except for the use of a banjo! Which, really, sounds pretty cool in the song, much better than a kazoo or whatever was on a previous album. I consider this a fine album and worth five stars compared to previous releases.
