1349 guitarist and founding member Tjalve (real name: André Kvebek) has left the Norwegian black metal act after nine years and three studio albums to focus on his other bands PANTHEON I and SARKOM.
Commented Tjalve in a statement: "I will remember 1349 as the most diabolical, vicious and plague-ridden band ever to stride the Earth, and I'm proud to have been a part of it. I'm confident that they'll continue to plague mankind for ages!"
1349 announced earlier in the year that they were going to be utilizing the services of former NILE drummer Tony Laureano on their upcoming dates as regular skinsman Frost is busy with promoting SATYRICON's recently released "Now, Diabolical" CD.
1349 released their third studio album, "Hellfire", in the U.S. last October via Candlelight Records. Recorded at Studio Studio in Nyhagen, Norway, "Hellfire" was supported by a European tour with Norwegian black metallers GORGOROTH.
