1349 - Demonoir (2010)
If you want brutal, uncompromising black metal then 1349 is your band. The lyrics and riffs are very grim, but the highlight of the album is undoubtedly Frost's magnificent drumming. The man is a blast beat machine almost unparalleled in the genre. 1349 may be a latecomer to the Norwegian black metal scene, but with this release they prove that they can indeed measure up to the greats.
