1349: 1349 rose from the ashes of Alvheim in 1997, with Ravn (vocals & drums), Tjalve (guitars), Seidemann (bass) and Balfori (guitars). They recorded but never released a demo in early '98, and Balfori quit shortly after due to musical differences.rnIn early '99 they recorded the never released promo Chaos Preferred. By then, the band realised they needed another guitarist, and found Archaon whose speed and technique took their music to a new level of intensity and brutality.

HIVELORDS: Philly - avante-garde - psychedlic - black metal 'Cavern Apothecary' was a glimpse into the potential this band had at that point. On ‘Tapered Limbs of a Human Star’, they've smashed through the glass ceiling and surpassed the promise they showed. The fact that they're signed to Anthropic Records is both a blessing and a curse; it makes those who know about the band seem like part of a secret club and preserves their cult status. However, had this been released on a label like Relapse, Profound Lore or Candlelight, everyone would be losing their shit and proclaiming this as the best album they've heard this year. It’s simply stunning. - The Sludgelord
