Taskaha - Taskaha

It’s always nice to discover new, good and exciting bands, and recently I discovered Taskaha. That band is a Norwegian prog band consisting of five adept musicans that share many years of experience from various bands and projects and with experience from many different music genres..

Taskaha presents themselves in this way, «Join us on a musical journey through a prog landscape that has received the magical mixing touch of Øyvind Voldmo Larsen at Lionheart Studio, and the secret mastering potion of Jens Bogren of Fascination Street Studios. Are you ready to be spellbound?».

Taskaha will release their self-titled debut album at the end of August. That album is produced by Stian Dahl whick also plays guitars in Taskaha. Artwork by Thomas Kaldhol and photo by Kerstin Dahl.

Stig Gøran Nordahl from Metal Express Radio states about Taskaha, «Taskaha take you on a joyful musical journey with their self titled debut album. Solid prog rock with twists and turns that will surprise and amuse the listeners. Excellent songwriting and performance. Don’t miss this one!».

Since the early 1990s, several of the current members have played together on various occasions and they have also had success with their respective side projects that has allowed them to play some major venues on both domestic and foreign soil.

The current lineup has existed since 2014 and the band actually started work on the debut album in 2016. 4 years is a long time, but the result was then absolutely worth the wait!

When Taskaha compose music, it is essential for them to challenge the boundaries of song arrangement utilising different time signatures and a mix of styles. They are big fans of playing around and experimenting, and often seek to add a humorous touch to parts of their music.

Their upcoming debut album, due for release on the 28th of August 2020, showcases their musicianship and displays a vast soundscape covering a gamut of musical expressions from hard metal to the soft and atmospheric.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4222 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
