Norwegian black metal tyrants 1349 (Ravn -Vocals, Frost [SATYRICON] – Drums, Seidemann – Bass, Archaon – Guitars) have announced a European headline tour in support of their forthcoming new album ‘Massive Cauldron of Chaos’. The headline run, dubbed the ‘Chaos Raids’ Tour, kicks off on November 12th and runs through seven countries. Additionally, the band are featured on the cover of the September issue of Norway’s Scream Magazine.
‘Massive Cauldron of Chaos’ will be released in North America on September 30, and will be available across multiple CD, vinyl, and cassette formats. 1349 are streaming three songs from their forthcoming album: “Exorcism,” “Cauldron,” and “Slaves.” “Slaves” is available for stream and purchase at iTunes and Bandcamp.
Founded in Norway in 1997, 1349 have remained a constant influence on the Norwegian black metal scene. With a penchant for lightning speed riffing, blazing drums, and apocalyptic lyrics, the band has trail-blazed the underground, surpassing many of their peers through brute musical force. Following a a trio of landmark albums, namely 2003’s Liberation, 2004’s Beyond the Apocalypse, and 2005’s Hellfire, 1349 is set to re-establish their dominance in the world-wide extreme metal scene.
