1476 (Salem, MA)
Salem, Massachusetts’ 1476 creates isolationist sound stories, heavy in atmosphere, that draw upon elements of many genres including metal, punk, neofolk and ambient. The band’s music harbors an energy and mood that reflects the environment of the old, haunting landscapes of New England’s coastal regions, resulting in an utterly unique sound, new to metal.
1476 released its new album, Our Season Draws Near, on March 31 via Prophecy Productions (Alcest, DOOL). Nine Circles debuted the album in full with an exclusive stream, adding, “You can hear the haunting influences of their Salem roots as the music rises and falls like a wave on the New England coast in winter.“
Produced by the band and mixed by Markus Siegenhort of post-black metal spearheads Lantlôs, the winter-themed Our Season Draws Near captures 1476 at its heaviest and most personal apex. Described as “a small candle flame of life lost in the middle of a winter void,” Our Season Draws Near delves into experiences with isolation and alienation and the idea that beneath the frozen surface is an internal fire and desire to defeat these obstacles. The album has met to shining acclaim in the weeks leading to its release, being hailed as, “incredibly distinct” by Decibel, and a record that “should establish 1476 as a wild-card folk/atmospheric metal force” (Dead Rhetoric).
Featuring multi-instrumentalists Neil Derosa and Robb Kavjian, 1476 has been heralded as “America’s best kept musical secret”. As a two-piece, they are completely self-contained; since forming in 2010, 1476 has written, recorded, and released their albums and EPs through their own imprint and studio, Seraphim House. The group’s DIY development has freed it from any and all genre restrictions and allowed the duo to boundlessly delve into conceptual worlds such as mythology and esotericism, reinventing itself with each release on its own terms. In 2016, it was announced that 1476 had signed with respected underground indie Prophecy Productions.
