1349

Until they began taking chances with their sound later on in their career, 1349 were a traditional Norwegian black metal band -- both musically and visually -- that took their name from the year in which the black death arrived on Scandinavian shores…need we say more? Well, if you must know, the band originated in the city of Oslo, in 1997, born of the ashes of an earlier group named Alvheim featuring vocalist and drummer Olav "Ravn" Bergene, guitarist André "Tjalve" Kvebek, and bassist Tor Risdal "Seidemann" Stavenes. Second guitarist Idar "Archaon" Burheim would join two years later, in time to perform on 1349's second demo (named "Chaos Preferred") and ensuing eponymous 2001 EP, which established the band's sound as a single-minded throwback to the devastating style of black metal that made Norway the movement's focal point in the early '90s (with the help of some rather illicit behavior extensively chronicled elsewhere). 1349 made another connection to that seminal period in time when they recruited Satyricon drummer Kjetil Vidar "Frost" Haraldstad to allow vocalist Ravn to roam free on-stage, which contributed to the band's burgeoning reputation both as players and as performers, thanks to the usual black metal accoutrements (ghastly corpse-paint, leather and spikes, fire breathing, etc). A trio of career-affirming albums followed, namely 2003's Liberation, 2004's Beyond the Apocalypse, and 2005's Hellfire, paving the way for a U.S run supporting the reunited Celtic Frost and a few years of dedicated touring and major European festival appearances. 1349 finally got back to the business of recording via 2009's Revelations of the Black Flame album; a radical departure produced in partnership with Celtic Frost icon Thomas Gabriel Fischer, who replaced much of the band's old-school black metal with slower, ambient, and semi-industrial sounds, outraging most of their fans. The following year's Demonoir made only token efforts to redress the situation (with numerous atmospheric pieces sprinkled amid the more typical black metal songs) and further polarized 1349's audience, leaving many unanswered questions as to the band‘s future prospects. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

The guy below this post is a turd and an epic failure.
True Metal is the only form of music that is played here.

It is not only the best form of music, but also the only style of music that let you truly express yourself.

Follow me for many forms of True Metal.

No bands formed after 1999 as 2000 was the official downfall of music.
Whoa... This is... awsome...
pretty great !!
I would love to see a drum battle between Frost and Proscriptor.
Frost is awesome! Best drummer in all of BM.
holy crap!!! this is the song from Fresh Prince of Black Metal on Youtube!!
I'm so happy I found this. Pandora has never let me down.
1349 and finntroll the best of the best!!
Christian black metal, normal black metal, it does kinda contradict, but if Christians wanna play black metal, why not. Music is music, I've been to a unblack metal concert, corpse paint and everything, not as good as real black metal. All I can say is, the majority of Christians would probably think unblack is satanic anyways.
KVLT
YES!
Frost is a f**king beastly machine behind that kit! I'm sure he can blast beast at 280bpms while sleeping.
hammers2005
I kown that kid. he is not the best, but is one of the best.
hammers2005
Frost does not need a machine gun he is one.. listen sculptor of flesh!
Quel un sac de douche
amazing band
Frost is crazy fast-I heard he holds the record for most beats per minute.I wouldn't mind listening a competition between Frost and Hellhammer
That drummer simply cannot be human
Saw em with skeletonwhyc h and cannibal corpse fucken awesome
annastrane, f you!
This band is actually pretty lame compared to Gorgoroth, but that's just my opinion. But the fact that no one in Gorgoroth has converted to Christianity makes them the better band.
Jingle bells, jingle bells

GODSMACK all the way..

Oh what fun it is to play

TRUE metal all the way, HEY!
Way better than Gorgoroth or Marduk, I'll give 'em that. Probably the best NBM out there. Not that NBM is any good.
ravenmaster f**k you!!!
Check out a song called Hardware-fro m a band called Mortificatio n . . . . s u p p o s e d l y Christian,bu t as good and hard as any black metal or Death Metal band.....Doe s n ' t much matter to me- I am a pagan and think both religious views(Christ i a n i t y and Satanism) ridiculous,b u t more to the point, music is music
ebrewer3
dont bother replying. he jacks off to responses to his posts.
Yeah. The whole "white" or "unblack" metal thing pisses me off. There's some kid at my school who listens to what he calls "life metal," or christian death metal. Stupid as hell, if you ask me.
ebrewer3
You mean Nazi clowns like yourself?
brutal s**t
"christian black metal"

i hear that term and fall over laughing... what's next, "polite death metal?"
It's called Unblack Metal or white metal (or whatever else they call it now)
