1349 Premiere New Song “Dødskamp”

1349 premiere a new track titled “Dødskamp“, which is part of a four song compilation that spans multiple musical genres inspired by the work of world-renowned Norwegian painter Edvard Munch. That collection has enlisted multiple bands and was commissioned by the Munch Musem, Innovasjon Norge and Visit Norway.

You can hear the song below, while a single for it backed with a live performance of “Atomic Chapel” will land in stores as a 10” on April 05th.

Comments 1349’s guitarist Archaon:

“Munch is unquestionably one of the most important Norwegian artists. His work is dark and eerie and reflects a lot of anxiety, pain, and loneliness in the way I perceive them. So it suited us perfectly. I found this very exciting, especially as I’ve grown up with several Munch pieces on the walls. I chose the work “Dødskamp“, which directly translates to “Death Struggle” which speaks volumes for itself. It was an emotionally Heavy task, and also a completely New way to compose and execute [for us]. It created some very long, sleepless nights but in the end it was worth it. This is our soundtrack to the dilemma of mortality.”

Mantar Denied Entry Into Norway, Cancels Oslo Show

German duo Mantar has posted a statement online stating that their show in Oslo tonight has been cancelled, after they were turned away the Norwegian border. The statement reads as follows:

“KEEP NORWAY GREAT,
“KEEP MANTAR OUT! Oslo show cancelled!

“Bad news: we got denied at the border due to some weird tax shit we were supposed to pay for all the equipment. We didn’t have the papers they wanted and getting them would have resulted in not making it in time to oslo anyway. We never ever had that problem before when playing Norway. We are beyond bummed and seriously pissed but will make it up to you asap. Tomorrow: GOTHENBURG!”

Mantar released their third album, “The Modern Art Of Setting Ablaze” earlier this year through Nuclear Blast Entertainment and are currently on tour in Europe with Skeletonwitch and Deathrite.

Mayhem To Release Dead Era Box Set, “Cursed In Eternity”

Peaceville has announced Cursed In Eternity, a comprehensive limited edition deluxe set covering the influential Dead era of Norwegian legends Mayhem. The set will be available on November 16th, and is available for pre-order here.

Containing six picture disc LPs, 7”, 92 page book, posters, and DVD featuring the never seen before Jessheim and Sarpsborg live shows plus Henhouse rehearsals.

“We are glad to be able to honour the Euronymous and Dead era in this comprehensive box set that Peaceville and Finn Håkon Rødland put together for the band.” – Necrobutcher & Hellhammer

Mayhem, the Norwegian pioneers responsible for invigorating a global scene alongside originators such as Venom, Celtic Frost & Bathory, formed in 1984, and with a long history of tragedy, intrigue and infamy have become truly revered legends of black metal, with a large part of their legacy established in the late 80’s & early 90’s, when guitarist Euronymous and bassist Necrobutcher welcomed Hellhammer on drums and Dead on vocals, to help shape a new era of darkness and Armageddon.

Marking 30 years since this particularly iconic and subsequently ill-fated union, the deluxe Cursed In Eternity set contains a full and expansive collection of work by the band during that period. This includes Mayhem’s legendary 1990 live dates in Norway and short German tour, plus the additions of the Out From The Dark and Henhouse rehearsal sessions.

These six titles are all presented on a special limited picture disc format for this release, with the set also including a 7” single vinyl containing two studio tracks (“Freezing Moon” and “Carnage”); recorded initially for the CBR compilation Projections Of A Stained Mind and here featuring sleeve artwork made at the time by former vocalist, Maniac.

Along with a full 92-page book recalling tales of their legendary shows and inspirational music from both band members and others from the scene, and including letters and previously unseen photographs sourced from personal archives, all in collaboration with the True Mayhem Collection, Cursed In Eternity also presents, for the first time, a DVD containing never-seen-before footage from the entire Jessheim concert, plus front of stage video from the Sarpsborg show, giving a priceless insight into how these shows were witnessed at the time. The DVD is completed by full footage of the Henhouse rehearsals.

As a final bonus inclusion, Cursed In Eternity features posters from the original designs and Zeitz photo from those iconic live shows.

Ondt Blod Premiere New Song “Start Han Opp” From Upcoming New Album “Natur”

Norwegian melodic hardcore band ONDT BLOD debut “Start Han Opp”, a new song from their upcoming album Natur.

The band commented: “Grandiose bragging, and a middle finger to tastemakers and their followers. Humbly stating that I´m the “dárrolaš Áilohaš/ the Norwegian Áilohaš”, the greatest in Sápmi, and ”young and hungry til I die”. Heavy riffage, and a hedonistic chorus filled with power and joy. A double gasoline-and-tonic coming up.”

Stream “Start Han Opp” below:
