Norwegian black metal tyrants 1349 have released the first track off their forthcoming Indie Recordings album. A lyric video for the track, titled ‘Slaves’, can be seen below.
‘Slaves’ will be released on an etched 7″ vinyl, limited to 666 copies. Pre-orders for the 7″ can be placed here
More information on the new album’s title and release date will follow.
Regarding the new track, vocalist Ravn commented: “We chose “‘Slaves’ because it showcases very well the spirit of the coming album. ‘Slaves’ has already become a fan favorite live on the Metal Alliance tour and the tour-exclusive 7″ stock is depleting fast. It is with great pride we see it unleashed upon the world!”
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 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 world-wide extreme metal.
