Taake (Norwegian pronunciation: [?to?k?]) is the solo vehicle of Ulvhedin Høst (Ørjan Stedjeberg), also known as Høst or Hoest. The band was formed in Bergen, Hordaland, Norway. During 1993, originally billed as Thule, Hoest proceeded to issue a brace of demos in 1993's 'Der Vinterstormene Rast' and 1994's 'Omfarnet Av Svarte Vinger' prior to adopting the new title of Taake. Billed as Taake, Hoest, together with Svartulv and Dim, the group cut the 1995 cassette 'Manndaudsvinter'.
