Norwegian black metal masters 1349 have released the official music video for the song "Dødskamp". The track was originally recorded in conjunction with the Edvard Munch museum and will appear on the band's new record, "The Infernal Pathway". The clip, which was filmed and edited by Carl Eek Torgersen of Necrolust Productions at Inferno Festival 2019 in Oslo, Norway, can be seen below.
Earlier this year, "Dødskamp" was commissioned by Innovation Norway, Visit Norway and the Munch Museum. Along with four Norwegian artists within four different genres of music, 1349 was asked to interpret its angle on a freely selected work by the famous painter Edvard Munch.
Since the release of the single, Visit Norway has shared a video in which 1349 gives detailed insight as to their inspiration behind the song and why they chose that particular piece.
"The Infernal Pathway" will be released on October 18 via Season Of Mist. The disc was recorded earlier this year at Amper Tone studios and Studio Nyhagen with engineer Jarrett Pritchard.
The cover artwork of "The Infernal Pathway" was created by Jordan Barlow.
1349 will embark on a European tour with ABBATH and VLTIMAS in January.
1349 is aural hellfire. That has been, and continues to be, the primary concept since the band first rose from the ashes of ALVHEIM in 1997. Conceived around the founding members — vocalist and former drummer Ravn, guitarist Tjalve, and Seidemann on bass — 1349 completed its lineup with the addition of guitarist Archaon in 1999 and SATYRICON drum legend Frost in 2001.
