King Dude


The solo project started in 1993 lead by U. Høst under the name Thule. Høst doesn't do everything himself though, he does get help from session musicians.

Two demos were made, «Der Vinterstormene Raste» in 1993 and «Omfavnet Av Svarte Vinger» in 1994. After the releases the band name changed to Taake, which represents the fog around the seven mountains of his hometown, Bjørgvin. Another demo was made in 1995 under the name «Manndaudsvinter» and a 7" EP was released in 1996, named «Koldbrann I Jesu Marg» on Høst's own Mosegrodd Productions. This solo-project is also very unusual because the lyrics are mostly formulated in old Norwegian verse pattern and written in the old runic alphabet.

Reverent as it is prophetic and stark, King Dude has previously shared his spiritual visions with releases on Dais, Avant!, Bathetic, Clan Destine, and Ván records. Pulling together the biblical sound and isolation of the bygone days of revelation with an atmosphere filled with hope and salvation, King Dude has woven his own brand of American music.

He brandishes many varied influences in his songwriting. Everything from British Folk, Americana, Country and Blues can be heard in his songs. Even the heavier sounds of Heavy Metal tend to sneak and slither it's way into the King Dude canon. The resulting songs are much more of a modern day hymn then your average pop song.

King Dude's music beg's the soul to lift itself up from the darkness of ignorance, towards the ever shining glorious «Light» that exists outside of all of us yet that which we are eternally connected to and at once connects everyone on Earth.
