1349 Drummer Rejoins Band In Chicago Following Visa Delay
Kjetil-Vidar "Frost" Haraldstad, the drummer of the Norwegian black metal band 1349, arrived safely in North America two days and joined the rest of the band on stage Thursday night (April 29) in Chicago.
1349 was forced to miss the first few dates of the CANNIBAL CORPSE tour due to volcanic and visa issues. The band made it over last weekend, but Frost was held back. Tony Laureano (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, ANGELCORPSE, NILE) stepped in while Frost was gone.
"Demonoir", the fifth full-length album from 1349, was released on April 26 in Europe via Indie Recordings and one day later in North America through Prosthetic Records. The CD was recorded at Studio Nyhagen, deep in the woods in Norway with Tom G. Warrior (HELLHAMMER, CELTIC FROST), who showed the greatest respect for the task and played a key role as motivator and catalyst. His technical role of the recording was that of a co-producer, but far more important was his presence and understanding of what a challenging project "Demonoir" was.
