ALBUM REVIEW: 1349 – The Infernal Pathway

 

Norweigian plaguebourne Black Metal act 1349 unforgivingly unveil their new album, The Infernal Pathway (Season Of Mist), a long-awaited LP for 2019. Their centralized coherency has stayed true to its path since 1997. Their construct of aggressive black metal has remained consistent as they’ve impressively demonstrated a threshold of effective releases. 1349 is nothing short of innovative, corpse paint driven, and a cause to exist, ultra-aggressive, that is to put in simpler words, well-executed.
