Precizní post black metal. Švédsko.
SHINING is more than just a band. In fact each release, every concert and interview becomes a bloody battleground, on which Niklas Kvarforth struggles with his inner demons. The frontman and only remaining original member has never been shy to let the world know about his mental afflictions, which seem to complement or even spark his outstanding talent as a composer and musician. His ninth album, 'IX - Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends' is another excellent example of Niklas' genius. Reaching back to their black metal roots, SHINING simultaneously melt eclectic influences from progressive rock, jazz, even pop and more into deeply emotional laments from the dark side of the soul. Niklas’ vocals come in an even greater variety of expressions which few would suspect in a singer coming from the extreme metal scene. Moments of pain and confusion turn into insane outbursts of anger. Despair shifts into melancholy and an eerie sense of timeless...
Never shy about his personal afflictions, SHINING mastermind Niklas Kvarforth is once again baring his tortured soul with 'X - Varg Utan Flock'. His anger, his confusion, his pain, and his torment are all becoming tangible on the tenth album in the band's long history. For a point of reference, the legendary 'V – Halmstad' release probably offers the most appropriate comparison. Yet all the influences SHINING fused into their previous masterpiece, 'IX - Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends' (2015) are also still present. Eclectic influences from progressive rock, jazz, classical music, and even faint traces of pop have left their mark. In addition to the broad musical spectrum on display, Niklas Kvarforth's deeply emotional laments emerging from the dark depths of his twisted mind go beyond the usual scale of metal bands in their great vocal scope and variety. 'X - Varg Utan Flock' is a musical masterpiece far beyond simple genre limitations and a shining tribute to the achievement...
