The critically acclaimed album “Demonoir” by 1349 will be 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.
For U.S. fans, the box set will be available only on FYE on November 25.
“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.
