Great riffs, great drumming, great production... Yet it somehow sucks. This band is a paradox if there ever was one. You bullies seem better at picking things apart, than adding value to them, so this is exactly what I'm asking you to do. Why is it that this album has everything Gorgoroth's Destroyer lacked, and yet it's not enough?

I'd assume, like most of their releases, it has zero spirit.

Spot on bevan! 1349 have never clicked for me and its exactly this. They do everything right like the OP says but it just seems to lack and real spirit or presence.

Just playing for the sake of playing to my ears, when they first jumped on the scene they had this false-aura of a new dawn of true pure Norwegian BM crap. Hyped and a newer generation bought into it.

Hellfire is the only album by them I enjoy, but I enjoy it a lot. First couple of tracks are intense. Then it takes a bit of a nosedive. Not into anything else by them really.

this band gained some popularity during a time when black metal was no longer a movement, but a formula

I'd say the same for bands like urgehal, and what thunderbolt became
what a turdy time for BM

Simple answer. Boring riffs.

They were hyped because they were a "supergroup," they played really fast at a point when playing really fast would get you a lot of fans, and to boot, the stuff being released by most "bigger" BM bands back then was so bad that this record wasn't totally horrible by comparison.

But in the end I cannot remember a single tune. I know I've heard this album, but it went in one ear and out the other.

Shit, I like it. Perhaps you don't dig the riffs as much as you first thought? The riffs are usually the deal-maker/breaker.

One of the most boring live bands I've ever seen. As a few have said of their music, absolutely NO spirit whatsoever.

Also, they made some expensive jeans as merch. What a joke.

You all must be kidding. The album is almost perfect. Chasing Dragons is still their best song in my opinion and the rest is great too. I'm not saying it's the best album ever, to be honest I needed a little effort to completely get into it, but it's not boring at all. To each his own I guess...

I only ever heard Hellfire. Not into this band too much, I don't like my black metal to be in the technical vein. The more primitive, the better.

Out of curiosity, how would you gents quantify "spirit"? Feel free to give examples as well.

early graveland.. lots of spirit, so much so that there was not much room left for musicianship - which is fine by me
