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. The song 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 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.

"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 Music

"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
