From Aural Innovations #37 (Sep 2007)
Taak are a six piece Estonian Doom rock band. The name means Heavy Burden. They also have another version of this band called Dawn of Gehenna, with the same music but the songs are sung in English. It sounds really cool in Estonian but you don’t know what the fuck he is saying… They describe themselves as DOOM rock, mainly based on the guitar riffs but the music is heavily driven by the organ to give it a unique edge. There are quite a few excellent tracks on the CD and few that sound too much like earlier tracks. Sometimes the singer sound a bit strained but in general I like his style. I wish the organ would take the lead a bit more and play some wicked solos rather just play an atmospheric role in the music.
