Death Metal/Black Metal
1349 is a Norwegian black metal band from Oslo, Norway, formed in 1997. The band's name is a reference to the year that the Black Death reached Norway. Combining influences from bands as diverse as Mayhem and Celtic Frost, the band self-describes their particular brand of black metal as "the soundscape to Hell, unrelenting and intense...aural hellfire." The band, to date, has released two demos, an EP and five full-length studio albums - the most recent being 2010's Demonoir.
