1349 To Enter the Studio This Month

1349 will enter the studio this month to record their new album, Beyond The Apocalypse.

1349 rose from the ashes of Alvheim in 1997, with Ravn (vocals, drums), Tjalve (guitars) Seidemann (bass) and Balfori (guitars). They recorded, but never released a demo in early '98. Balfori quit shortly after due to musical differences. In '99 they recorded the never released promo Chaos Prefferred.

1349 needed another guitarist, and found Archaon whose speed and technique took their music to a new level of intensity and brutality. Come spring 2000, 1349 wanted to record a new promo showcasing their new material, and Ravn asked Frost to do the drumsto get the speed required. Frost was later so impressed by the material written for the next release, that he wanted to become a permanent member of 1349.

Holycaust Records offered them a deal and released the new promo as an eponymous mini-CD. Early 2001 they felt they had enough killer songs for a full-lenght album, Liberation. Recorded and mixed in Gordon Studios, and mastered at Strype Audio, Liberation mixed seamlessly Old School with modern warp-speed hysteria.

1349 have played a few gigs, supporting Gorgoroth and later Cadaver Inc., as well as the Hole In The Sky festival in Bergen. The band has now parted ways with Holycaust Records and are now signed to Candlelight Records.
