1349 is the year the Black Death reached Norwegian shores.
It’s now been 666 years since and 10 years since the band released their signature Hellfire album – and tonight they’re celebrating by playing the album in full. The sound of crackling flames builds up as the album’s closing title track is turned into an intro, but initially this grand anniversary seems under-rehearsed and lacking in brutality. I Am Abomination continues in the same vein, but as Sculptor Of Flesh blasts through on a blastwave of aggression, revealing the raw essence of 1349, it becomes a turning point.
