Founding member Tjalve has decide to leave 1349 to focus on his other bands Pantheon I and Sarkom.
After 9 years and 3 studio albums Tjalve has decided to pursue a different musical expression, concentrating solely on the vessel of his musical vision: Pantheon I
Tjalve leaves the band with the following statement: "I will remember 1349 as the most diabolical, vicious and plague- ridden band ever to stride the Earth, and I'm proud to have been a part of it. I'm confident that they'll continue to plague mankind for ages!""
