1349: Liberation

Raw Norwegian black metal that makes much of what came out of the fair Scandinavian country during the early '90s sound like soothing crooner music a la Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. 1349's music is as uncompromising and sinister as any in the metal underground. While some might argue that "Manifest" and "I Breathe Spears" are little more than exercises in pushing the boundaries between organized noise and music, those tracks, as well as "Pitch Black," "Evil Oath" and others, prove rewarding for the patient listener seeking out new forms of expression within the genre. It might be cliche to say this but 1349 are not for the faint of heart or weak of ear.

Now that Emperor's gone look for this bunch (and Old Man's Child) to take up the cause of creating groundbreaking black metal.
