PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve seen 1349 in concert at least a half dozen times by this point and am always impressed at how tight they are and how menacing and nefarious they seem as they deliver their razor sharp blasphemy. If you consider yourself a Black Metal fan at all, you need to add some 1349 to your library and show attending plans. What do you folks think about this news?
