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 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.
