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.”
