Norwegian black metal masters 1349 have announced the release date of their new album. The record, titled ‘The Infernal Pathway’ was recorded in Amper Tone studios and Studio Nyhagen with engineer Jarrett Pritchard earlier this year. ‘The Infernal Pathway’ will see a worldwide release via Season of Mist on October 18, 2019.
Norwegian black metal titans 1349 have returned with their long awaited seventh full-length: ‘The Infernal Pathway’. The album promises a journey through chaos and madness, darkness and peril, terror and annihilation.
The band are furthermore premiering a brand new song, called “Enter Cold Void Dreaming”, which can be streamed below.
The cover artwork of ‘The Infernal Pathway’ has been created by Jordan Barlow and can be viewed below, together with the tracklist.

‘Massive Cauldron of Chaos’ (2013) was the last milestone in the Norwegians merciless discography, scoring excellent reviews and a nomination for a Norwegian Grammy (Spellemannprisen). The release sparked more festival shows as well as extensive touring, bringing 1349 to Australia and New Zealand. In 2018, the Munch Museum and Innovation Norway chose 1349 as one of four bands to create a song based on the paintings of Edvard Munch. As a result, the single ‘Dødskamp’ was released earlier this year.
After performing a fiery show at Norway’s Inferno festival this year, 1349 started recording in Amper Tone studios and Studio Nyhagen with engineer Jarrett Pritchard. Thus, ‘The Infernal Pathway’ was born, a sonic parallel to summoning and unleashing the beast of the abyss in all its fearsome, ferocious and powerful splendor.
