Takatak was formed 10 years ago, in the city of Lahore - the second largest city in Pakistan and the largest city in the Punjab province. Deriving it’s name from a spicy Pakistani meat dish, The name takatak denotes the sound of the spatula hitting the hot plate or griddle and breaking the food into smaller chunks while they are being cooked with aromatic spices and herbs. Takatak is the rhythm of chopping.
Takatak performs a modern take on heavy metal never before seen in Pakistan or anywhere else for that matter! It truly is unique. I fucking swear to God. The band has gone through a number of line up changes, and with every line up change, they’ve released a new, but slightly different record.
The first line up gave us 3 beautiful singles. The second line up gave us a 3 song EP called “Out Of Something”. This is the third line up change of this band, and it has been the most extensive; thus causing the new record to be the most different out of the band’s entire discography. It truly is unique. If you don’t believe me, then listen for yourselves. I dare you. I double dare you motherfucker.
