Metal Storm Awards 2012

2013.03.16

I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that Taranis’s album “Kingdom” was nominated for the Metal Storm Awards 2012. In the fan voting it finished on the 6th rank of the melodic black metal category. However, the staff of Metal Storm had its own vote and selected “Kingdom” as The Best Melodic Black Metal/Metalgaze Album of the Year!

  1. Wanderson:

    Fiquei maravilhado com essas canções. Você está de parabéns pelo talento múltiplo nos instrumentos e pela bela voz tanto limpa quanto Gutural. o Taranis – álbum Kingdom, e Finsterforst – álbum Rastlos são respectivamente os dois melhores Álbuns de EpicVikingProgBlackMetal que eu ouvi em 2013.

  2. Zöld Tea:

    Gratulálok a megérdemelt sikerhez! Minden idők egyik legjobb hazai metal albuma a Taranis – Kingdom. Várjuk a folytatást is :)

Interview at Hardrock.hu (Hungarian)

2012.01.27

Forrás: http://hardrock.hu/?q=node/18250
Az interjút Tomka készítette.

Bakos Attila egyike a legjobb hazai metal énekeseknek, nevét mégse ismerik túl sokan. Pedig karakteres orgánumával nagyban hozzájárult ahhoz, hogy a legutóbbi két Thy Catafalque album, a ’Róka hasa rádió’ és a ’Rengeteg’ ilyen remekül sikerült. Ám Attila nem csak Kátai Tamás zenekarának nívóját emeli, hanem az elmúlt évtizedben szólópályáját is egyengette: idén januárban jelent meg Taranis nevű bandája nagylemeze, a ’Kingdom’, amelyet talán a „progresszív szimfonikus black metal” műfajbesorolással lehetne illetni, de tagja egy Arcturus-szal rokon zenét játszó norvég zenekarnak is, arról nem is beszélve, hogy a neofolk kedvelői számára a Woodland Choirból is ismerős lehet. Attilát karrierjéről, alkotói módszereiről és a friss Taranis albumról kérdeztük.

Taranis – Kingdom

2011.12.30

11 years have passed since the “In Days Of Yore” demo. It was released in 2000, and in the same year I composed an album’s worth of new songs. We split up shortly after, I didn’t plan to release them, but as the years passed by I started to feel that I won’t be able move on until I record these songs. So I finished the 40 minutes long album entitled “Kindgom”, which is the fulfilment of the path we stepped on with our demo.
You can listen to the album here on my page, under Taranis discography, or you can check the following:
http://taranis.bandcamp.com
http://www.myspace.com/taranishungary
http://soundcloud.com/attilabakos/sets/taranis-kingdom
The cover artwork shows the brilliant work of Gyula Havancsák (http://www.hjules.com), and the photos of me were taken by Andrea Takács (http://www.takacsandrea.hu).
The album is only available in digital format, for USD 8 you’ll get 24bit/48kHz FLAC quality on my Bandcamp page (or 320kbit MP3). There are plans for a limited CD release as well, hopefully it will happen in 1-2 months.

  1. Lial:

    Kingdom is the best album of 2012 i am a guitarist myself and the music on the album has made a huge impact on me artistically and personally. Look foward to hearing more from Taranis soon.

  2. Damaris:

    KINGDOM I really liked this album, the four songs I bristle skin but STORM has a certain charm!
    I loved

Interview at Hammerworld.hu (Hungarian)

2010.10.13

Forrás: http://hammerworld.hu/2010/10/12/woodland-choir-akusztikus-folkos-ambient/
Az interjút Uzseka Norbert készítette.

Az akusztikus, folkos, ambient-jellegű zenében utazó Woodland Choir mögött egyetlen srác áll, Bakos Attila, akit legtöbben talán onnan ismernek, hogy ő énekelt a komoly elismeréseket kiváltott, tavalyi Thy Catafalque albumon.
