Norwegian Black Metallers 1349 have just released a new single entitled 'Dødskamp'. It is available for streaming at this location. The song has been commissioned by Innovation Norway, Visit Norway and the Munch Museum, who asked four Norwegian artists within four different genres of music to interpret their angle on a freely selected work by the famous painter Edvard Munch. Guitarist Archaon issued the following comments about the single: "Munch is arguably the biggest Norwegian artist throughout history, together with Edvard Grieg, I suppose. His works are tremendously dark and eerie, reflecting a lot of anxiety, pain and loneliness, in the way I perceive them. So, it suited us perfectly. I chose the work "Dødskamp" which directly translates "Death Struggle" and speaks volumes for itself. It was an emotionally Heavy task, and also a completely new way to compose. As well as some very long nights, bereaved of sleep. In the end though, it was worth it. This is the soundtrack to the dilemmas of mortality." 'Dødskamp' is available as a vinyl single (which also features the bonus track 'Atomic Chapel') and can be pre-ordered from the Season Of Mist shop. A new 1349 full length will be released later this year. For regular updates visit www.facebook.com/1349official
