Yep, you read that right. We all know the meanest and nastiest black metal bands come from Norway, but did you ever think that this evil would spread into the world of fashion? 1349 have teamed up with Anti designer, Karoline Bakken Lund, to create an exclusive line of jeans, made to suit all your church-burning needs.
The promo pictures show the band distressing the jeans in a dark smoky room and (wait for it!) even holding a lighter next to some buttons! Holy shit, that’s “scary”. According to the press fluff, “every denim ordered will be made the exact way it was made”. So nice of them to let us know that, whatever the hell it actually means.
Retailing at €590 (which at the current exchange rate, clocks in at a hefty £490), these jeans sure don’t come cheap. What’s next – Marduk Tampons? Gorgoroth Christmas decorations? Dimmu Borgir duvet sets….by this time next year, someone will have set up an Etsy store for all this stuff, mark our words.
Watch Ravne from 1349 being a bit more grim than when he’s making jeans:
