Norwegian black metallers 1349 have scheduled the following dates in their home country:
April 27 – Hulen – Bergen, Norway
April 28 – Folken – Stavanger, Norway
Commented the band: “We had a splendid evening last time we visited Hulen; there was a fiery connection between the band and the audience, and the natural ambience inside the cavern fits 1349 perfectly. So we look forward to returning, and this time we will pull out some special songs from the hat — both old and new songs that we haven’t performed live in a very long time or not at all. This is going to be a feast! Our encounter with the Stavanger audience on April 28 is going to be 1349‘s very first, and that’s an event now in the band’s 11th year of existence. Both 1349 and the metal scene of the Stavanger/Jæren-area has a strong and characteristic national identity — let’s see what happens when we meet for a hellish burn-out this Saturday evening!”
1349 releases its first-ever live DVD, “Hellvetia Fire – The Official 1349 Bootleg”, last October via Candlelight Records. The disc was filmed at Bikini Test La chaux De Fonds in Switzerland in 2005 and features a special guest appearance by Tom G. Warrior (HELLHAMMER, CELTIC FROST, TRYPTIKON).
The critically acclaimed album “Demonoir” by 1349 was reissued as a limited box set as part of the Indie Recordings Norwegian Collector’s Edition Series. It contains seven bonus tracks, including an unreleased track that did not appear on the expanded edition or the limited edition, 12-page booklet, poster, guitar pick, a patch and autographed photo card. The box is handnumbered and limited to 1000 copies worldwide.
“Demonoir”, the fifth full-length album from 1349, was recorded at Studio Nyhagen, deep in the woods in Norway with Tom G. Warrior (HELLHAMMER, CELTIC FROST), who showed the greatest respect for the task and played a key role as motivator and catalyst. His technical role of the recording was that of a co-producer, but far more important was his presence and understanding of what a challenging project “Demonoir” was.
