Biography

Oslo, Norway (1997 – present)

1349 is a band named after the year that The Plague arrived in Norway. 1349 rose from the ashes of Alvheim in 1997 in Oslo, Norway with Ravn on vocals & drums, Tjalve on guitars, Seidemann on bass and Balfori on guitars. They recorded but never released a demo in early 1998, and Balfori quit shortly after due to musical differences.

In early 1999 they re-recorded the never released promo Chaos Preferred. Then, the band realized they 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 decided to record a new promo showcasing the new material, and Frost of Satyricon was asked to lay down the drum tracks to get the speed required. Frost was later so impressed by the material, that he asked to join 1349 as a permanent member. Holycaust Records offered them a deal and released the new promo as an eponymous MCD. By early 2001, the band felt they had enough killer songs for a full-length album - Liberation. Recorded and mixed at Gordon Studios, Liberation blended old school soundscapes with warp-speed hysteria. In the wake of such yet unreleased but unforgiving material, 1349 supported Gorgoroth, Cadaver Inc.and later performed at the Hole in he Sky festival in Bergen in 2001, as well as the Inferno festival in Oslo in 2002. After signing a new deal with Candlelight Records, Liberation was released in April 2003.
