1349 vocalist Ravn has been a longtime devotee of the music of Tom G. Warrior, whether it’s Hellhammer or Celtic Frost or even now in Triptykon. The two had shared the stage twice before to perform the Frost classic "The Usurper". Tom Warrior felt an artistic connection to 1349 and their uncompromising dark experimental leanings. The two have worked together pretty extensively in the studio, with Warrior performing bass and guitar tracks on 1349’s cover of the Pink Floyd song "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" in addition to co-mixing and co-producing for the band. The two dark visionaries hit the road with their respective bands 1349 and Triptykon with support from Yakuza on the "Weltenbrand Tour 2010". As the North American tour comes to a close this night in Austin, Ravn once again joins Tom G. Warrior to perform "The Usurper" for a third time. Time will tell, whether the two might join forces on a new musical project, set on decimating your mind into the black aural abyss of oblivion. For now, enjoy the chat conducted with Tom and Ravn…
