And Frost is still in the band? I thought he got kicked out or something.

xDecapitation - Yes he apparently still is within the line up. I like the sound of the description of what the album will sound like I got from their Label, Prosthetic.

"For the band's fifth full-length release, 1349 decided to suck out the fiercest and most potent energies from every single member and surroundings, channeling it into songs that are pulsating with uncanny atmospheres, rawness and nerve shattering intensity. The whole process of getting the material on record was like one long, exhausting black magic summoning that could not be allowed to go wrong.

"DEMONOIR" is without a shadow of a doubt 1349's darkest, most sinister and brutal work to date, and in this case it comes to mean that the band has gone from the utterly extreme to the genre-expanding and mind-boggling. Black Metal cannot, and will never be the same."

Sounds promising. I didn't think much of the last record they put out, hopefully this release will be a comeback to their older sound.

Wow, that's mighty "cool & quick" a new 1349 album release for 2010: I look forward to the new "DEMONOIR" release...'they have a surreal bite-chill to their sound and liked very much liked the '09 1349 album release "Revelations of the Black Flame" which was hauntingly "clever" in vocals & music techiques moods. All the best to the "4" legendary HELLFIRE Musicians of "1349"...'cheers!
