Sweden's SHINING To Release IX / Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends Album In April
January 20, 2015, 3 years ago
Sweden's Shining will release their ninth full-length album, IX / Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends, via Season Of Mist on April 20th.
Commenting on the album, founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth had this to say: "For once I am extremely pleased with how the album turned out and I believe that the fevered presence of filth and uncompromising darkness is more prominent than ever before. Not only will our more recent fan-base “enjoy” the oppression contained therein but I am also certain that those who stopped listening to Shining after our fifth album will find the new one plague-ridden with what some might have felt was lacking on the more recent efforts… that atmosphere of old".
Shining recently released photos taken during the recent video shoot for a track from their upcoming album. The photos, by Assi Viljanen, have been uploaded onto Shining's Facebook page and can be seen at this location.
The only details regarding the video that Shining is prepared to reveal for the time being is that it is being filmed in Helsinki, Finland and Belgrade, Serbia, and is directed by Martin Strandberg. Strandberg was also responsible for the videos for "Tillsammans Är Vi Allt" and "Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel" from the band’s seventh full length album, VII / Född Förlorare, and is currently working on a "warts and all" documentary about the band.
Commenting on the video, Shining founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth had this to say: "Although Martin has worked on our videos before, this one will be something quite different from any previous efforts."
The last release from Shining was 8 ½ - Feberdrömmar I Vaket Tillstånd, which appeared on Dark Essence Records in 2013 and featured guest vocals from some of the elite of black metal including Attila Csihar (Mayhem, Tormentor), Maniac (Skitliv, ex-Mayhem), Gaahl (God Seed, Wardruna, Trelldom, ex-Gorgoroth), Famine (Peste Noire) and Pehr Larsson (Alfahanne).
