Background

1349, named for the year the plague hit Norway in the 14th Century, found immediate cult status with the recording and release of their self-titled mini-album in 2001. Word of mouth spread like the plague about the band's musical offering, and Frost, who initially joined the group as a session musician, would later ask to become a permanent member. Vocalist Ravn, guitarists Tjalve and Archaon, and bassist Seidemann agreed and 1349 was complete. The band signed to Candlelight Records in late 2002.

More Bands Added To NEM&F Lineup

The latest round of additions to the continually-expanding lineup for 2014's installment of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival has been disclosed, including Massachusetts' own '90s hardcore punk act, Sam Black Church.

Confirmed as one of the main headliners of the event's third night, Saturday, April 19th, Sam Black Church's set at NEMHF 2014 will mark only the third performance since the group initially disbanded at the turn of the century, and first in Central Massachusetts since the late '90s.

Stated the band upon being asked to take part in the massive event this Spring: "It is amazing what the man we used to know as Ogre has done with the New England Metalfest! We are fucking excited to be a part of it once again!"

The organizers of the fest comment: "Formed in Boston, in June of 1988 by Jesse "Jet" Crandall (vocals), Ben Crandall (guitar), Richard G. Lewis (bass), and J.R. Roach (drums), Sam Black Church was known for their energetic live performances, playing a frenetic blend of hardcore, metal, and thrash. Over the years sharing bills with bands as diverse as Bad Brains, Clutch, Motörhead, Cro-Mags, Fear, and Helmet, they were one of the most popular hardcore bands in the Northeast United States during the 1990s. After releasing three full-lengths on Taang! Records, they left to join Wonderdrug where they remained until they retired in 2000 after releasing a total of seven albums. Since disbanding, Sam Black Church reunited for a sold-out show on September 22, 2007, at The Roxy in Boston, and played a another sold-out performance at Hometown Throwdown #16 with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at House of Blues in Boston on December 29th, 2013. A documentary of their career by Duncan Wilder Johnson entitled Leave Behind a Groove in the Earth is scheduled for release in 2014."

Also now confirmed to invade this year's festival are Oceano, Scars of Tomorrow, The Last Ten Seconds of Life, InDirections, and Julius Seizure on Thursday, April 17th, and Reflections on Friday, April 18th. The setup for Saturday, April 19th has also been lengthened with Texas In July, Obey The Brave and the aforementioned Sam Black Church performance.

1349 Displays Live Drawings

While you await the arrival of Norwegian black metallists 1349 to storm the U.S. alongside Marduk, you can feast your eyes on the drawings that artist Kim Holm created of the band performing live:

The Aural Hellfire Legion stated, "From time to time, we (1349) get approached by other artists that find inspiration in our work and want to pay tribute to us. It is a great honor and such an awarding payback for the hard work we put into our art. Every now and then there is an artist that comes along that presents us with something so special that we want to share it and promote their work, and Kim Holm is a perfect example of this. This guy drew the band while performing live and was able to transform the live energy we present on stage into his drawings. Check out his work!"

You can check out Kim Holm's representation of 1349 live both here and on his website and compare it to real life by coming out to see the band on one of the upcoming shows along with labelmates Withered:

1349 Comments On Upcoming Shows

1349 has issued the following statement about upcoming Norwegian live shows in April:

"1349 goes west in April and performs at Hulen in Bergen on the 27th of April and at Folken in Stavanger on the 28th.

"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 28th 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!"
