1349 - Abomination

1349 was the year of arrival of the Black Plague in Norway, home of these atavistic barbarians. They produce straightforward Norwegian Black Metal without the spactacles of church-burning, murder, electronic dance music, elf costumes, rubberized trousers, fetishized fascism, synthesized church organs, or modern production technique. If they rely on a gimmick, it is merely the tendency of band members to blow fireballs on stage and in still photographs, no mean feat when one's face is slathered in greasepaint and novelty costume blood.
To Rottendom!
