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.

Celtic Frost To Appear On HBB This Weekend

Swiss metal band CELTIC FROST will be appearing on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" on Saturday, September 30. The segment was taped when FROST played in New York City earlier this month. The show will also mark the "Headbanger's Ball" premier of the video for "A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh", taken from their 2006 release "Monotheist".

"The tour and the audience's reactions have far exceeded all of our expectations," said bassist Martin Eric Ain, checking in from Calgary. "We have worked very hard to bring the FROST back, and the support of the people we have met so far during these shows has made it more than worthwhile. We are one-third into this tour, and we'd like to think there is much more to come and that we have much more to give."

Currently 14 shows into their 47-date North American tour, the band will perform Victoria, Canada Saturday night. On October 3, the band will be joined by SUNN O))) and GOATWHORE, replacing current supporting artists 1349 and SAHG.
