Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Norwegian black metal tyrants 1349 for North America. The band (Frost [SATYRICON] - Drums, Ravn -Vocals, Seidemann - Bass, Archaon - Guitars) will release their new album in fall of 2014.

1349 commented on the signing: "We entered the studio with an idea of putting everything that 1349 has ever been about into a cauldron, stir it well, and pour in some fresh ingredients - as well as some strange old ones - and come up with our most potent elixir ever. And we brought the spirit to match the ambitious attempt. Boil, boil, toil and trouble...Behold! We have made the most delightfully intoxicating and dangerous potion you can dream of. FEEL THE FIRE! And Hail Hell."

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.

The tour kicked off on April 4 and continues through the United States and Canada, making stops at Texas Independence Fest and the New England Metal Festival along the way. The remainder of tour dates can be found below.

"Amidst seas of mindless music fans shunning black metal as a genre of satanic noise and worthless musicianship, 1349 comes to remedy the ailment of the people." - Sputnik Musick

"Named after the year the black plague hit Norway, 1349 is truly an aural assault on the listener... 1349 absolutely have what it takes to be remembered as something great and not just a passing fad. Their sound, while being influenced by everything from Slayer to Darkthrone, is still uniquely 1349, and should be remembered as such. If you are a fan of any type of metal, not just black metal, you will without doubt find something in 1349 that brings you back for more." – Lambgoat

"1349, a Norwegian black metal band, has excelled at delivering consistently solid albums since their 2003 debut “Liberation.” Time and time again, 1349 has brought a heightened sense of aggression, with little room in their sound to breathe..." - Metal Underground
