Last Known Status: Active

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.

Gaahl Comments On Signing With Indie Recordings

More comments have been made on both sides of the camp regarding God Seed's recent signing to Indie Recordings. The label commented:

"Through the last years we've worked with King & Gaahl in many different bands and projects such as. Gorgoroth, Trelldom, Sahg, Audrey Horne and Wardruna. The quality of their work has always been outstanding, and we welcome this opportunity to once again work with them – this time building something new together. The as-yet-untitled God Seed album will be released late 2009. The album has been in the making for some time already, and continues the already established path of King and Gaahl in a natural, yet progressive way.

"The new material sounds great and we are truly looking forward to be a part of their new musical carrier through God Seed."

In a press statement King comments the signing and the upcoming album:

"I have high hopes for the future signing to Indie Recordings. Gaahl and I have had various negative experiences with labels in the past, but feel confident that we have made the right choice this time. Indie Recordings consists of people we have worked with in the past and they have shown 100% professionalism. They have proven to take care and bring the best out of the bands on their roster. The fact that they are a Norwegian label and not a Swedish label makes me even more optimistic for the future!!"

God Seed's studio line up is as follows:

Vocals - Gaahl
Bass - King
Drums – Frost (Satyricon, 1349)
Guitar – Ice Dale (Enslaved, I, Audrey Horne)
Guitar – Telloch (Nidingr, Umoral)

Tom Fischer Posts Triptykon Update

Tom Fischer, most famous as the former frontman of metal legends Celtic Frost, has issued the following statement regarding his new band, Triptykon:


"Just returned home from an initially somewhat hampered but ultimately very successful rehearsal session with Triptykon. It was the first session in a while, not least due to a hand injury that had forced me to pause temporarily. And in a few hours, I will travel back to Norway for a few days yet again, to attend some of the mixing sessions for 1349's new album. Although, admittedly, my mind is very much with Triptykon, and I am eager to return to Switzerland to continue work on songs, demos, and our first album."
