‘Massive Cauldron of Chaos’, which has been called a “another career-defining release which will surely confirm their place among black metal’s more promising groups.” (Sputnik Music), and a “musical, versatile effort that should earn 1349 a high degree of respect going forward” (Metal Injection) is streaming here.

Founded in Norway in 1997, 1349 have remained a constant influence on the Norwegian black metal scene. With a penchant for lightning speed riffing, blazing drums, and apocalyptic lyrics, the band has trail-blazed the underground, surpassing many of their peers through brute musical force. Following a a trio of landmark albums, namely 2003’s Liberation, 2004’s Beyond the Apocalypse, and 2005’s Hellfire, 1349 is set to re-establish their dominance in the world-wide extreme metal scene.
