The Flames Rise Higher on 1349’s New Single Ash of Ages

Posted on May 3, 2024

More information about Ash of Ages

In the grand tradition of black metal supremacy, 1349 returns with a searing standalone single, Ash of Ages, paving the desolate path to their much-anticipated North American tour later this May. Echoing the grim roots of black metal’s full-throated cry, Ash of Ages ascends from the band’s profound depths to scorch the earth with its presence.

1349 have been the unrelenting force of Norwegian black metal since their rise from the realm of Alvheim in 1997. Their journey throughout the years has been relentless, an endless pursuit to refine their dark craft. With each release, they’ve etched their mark deeper into the annuls of the genre, and Ash of Ages is nothing less than a continuation of this furious legacy.

The Norwegian black metal titans are set to unleash their blistering storm across Eastern Canada and the U.S. this May, commencing with a thunderous roar at Dark Lord Day Festival in Munster, IN.

Along for this malevolent crusade are the enigmatic Canadian occultists Spectral Wound, the ferocious Antichrist Siege Machine from Richmond, and the spellbinding Spirit Possession hailing from Oregon.

1349 will be bringing along the new single on 12″ vinyl – lucky souls attending one of the 11 hellish rituals will get the chance to get the first new music since 1349‘s critically-acclaimed 2019 album The Infernal Pathway.
