Norwegian black metal tyrants 1349 (Frost [SATYRICON] – Drums, Ravn -Vocals, Seidemann – Bass, Archaon – Guitars) have released the first track from their forthcoming Season of Mist album. The track, titled “Slaves” is streaming now at Loudwire. More information on the album’s title and release date will follow.
Regarding the new track, vocalist Ravn commented: “We chose “Slaves” because it showcases very well the spirit of the coming album. “Slaves” has already become a fan favorite live on the Metal Alliance tour and the tour-exclusive 7″ stock is depleting fast. It is with great pride we see it unleashed upon the world!”
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 world-wide extreme metal.
1349 have begun the 2014 Metal Alliance tour alongside BEHEMOTH, GOATWHORE, and label-mates INQUISITION. The band will also join GOATWHORE for a series of Metal Alliance off-date shows. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
1349 is available for interviews upon request. To speak with the band, please contact Enrique Sagarnaga via email or phone (215-625-8400). Updated 1349 news will be made available through the Season of Mist website, and the official 1349 website and Facebook page.
