1349: “Slaves” Lyric Video ReleasedTuesday, 15th April 2014
Norway’s masters of blackened sonic evil 1349 are finally back with a deadly vengeance. Four long years after the release of the masterpiece Demonoir, the band will return with a new full-length album this fall. This CD will be released on Indie Recordings throughout the world except for North America, where Season Of Mist will be handling the effort.
To shorten the wait, the band has decided to bring a digital single, “Slaves”, on the market, in addition to a special seven-inch single, limited to 666 copies. The single was made available on digital services from April 4, the same day as the band’s U.S. tour started.
The official lyric video for “Slaves” can be seen below.
1349 is touring the U.S. with BEHEMOTH and GOATWHORE in April and May, and a full European tour will follow later in the year.
Comments the band: “We entered the studio with an idea of putting everything that 1349 has ever been about into a cauldron, stir it well, and pour in some fresh ingredients — as well as some strange old ones — and come up with our most potent elixir ever. And we brought the spirit to match the ambitious attempt. Boil, boil, toil and trouble…Behold! We have made the most delightfully intoxicating and dangerous potion you can dream of. FEEL THE FIRE! And Hail Hell.”
Regarding the new track “Slaves”, 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 seven-inch stock is depleting fast. It is with great pride we see it unleashed upon the world!”
