Shining premiere and streaming of the new song “Gyllene Portanas Bro” is available today, song is a part of the forthcoming ”X – Varg Utan Flock”!

Premiere and streaming of Swedish black metal maniacs Shining for the song  “Gyllene Portanas Bro” is available, this song is a part of the  forthcoming album ”X – Varg Utan Flock” which is going to be out in January 5th 2018 via Season Of Mist Records.

Here is a statment of mastermind Niklas Kvarforth about the song:

“The track, ”Gyllene Portarnas Bro” has been in the works since 1999 and is one of the calmer moments on this record. Built around three different parts, it was originally intended for the album, ‘Livets Ändhållplats’. It was later reworked for ‘Redefining Darkness’, but it wasn’t until now that this song finally started to make sense. Lyrically, it speaks of the seduction of the human mind and spirit, the ultimate destruction of the life cycle of the one being seduced. Indeed, this track sets the mood for the violent darkness that follows.”


Niklas Kvarforth is not the first artist struggling with mental illness and related issues. The erratic Swede is also not the first musician whose inner demons are part of the creative genius. Yet in the world of metal, his band Shining remains as a unique and outstanding act in terms of talent and musical excellence. Never shy about his personal afflictions, 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.

Founded in 1996 by Kvarforth, Shining self-released ”Submit to Self-Destruction” in 1998 and spawned the term “suicidal black metal” with this debut 7″. A couple years after first full-length, ”I – Within Deep Dark Chambers” (2000) and sophomore album, ”II – Livets Ändhållplats” (2001) had cut deep marks into the underground scene, Niklas replaced his whole crew, which started a continuous cycle of line-up changes. With Mayhem drummer Hellhammer on board, ”III – Angst” (2003) and ”IV – The Eerie Cold” (2005) began to gather major press attention. At the same time, Shining focused on bringing their vision and often controversially received live performances to Europe.

Yet Kvarforth’s mental health led to cancellations, physical and psychological fights within the band, and finally a break-up. Not content to let things rest after his breakdown, the restless singer returned with new members and the acclaimed masterpiece, ”V – Halmstad” in 2007. By then Shining had reached headliner status and toured with other great acts such as Satyricon and Mayhem.

Several line-up changes later, the Swede recorded two albums in one session: ”VI – Klagopsalmer” was released in 2009, to be followed by ”VII – Född Förlorare” two years later. The band also received their first gold disc for the single ”Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel” in Sweden.

After rotating more musicians in and out, Shining returned with ‘Redefining Darkness’ (2012) and a less aggressive, yet more sinister sound. Before signing to Season of Mist, the band released the project ”8 ½ – Feberdrömmar I Vaket Tillstånd”, which featured six of Kvarforth’s favourite vocalists.

In August 2014, Shining entered Andy LaRocque’s Sonic Train Studios to record their ninth album, ”IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends” as the sum of Niklas Kvarforth’s musical evolution and experience. More line-up changes and breakdowns followed. Yet Niklas Kvarforth clawed his way up from the depths once more and returned to Andy LaRocque and Sonic Train Studios to record another album. The result, ”X – Varg Utan Flock” is a musical masterpiece far beyond simple genre limitations and a shining tribute to the achievement that a troubled mind is capable of when driven by a passionate will to excel and overcome. Listen with respect.

For all its beauty, Iceland can be a sinister place where furious elements rage teaching fear but also inspiring human creativity. Hailing from the village of ”Hveragerði” in the south of the volcanic island,  Auðn are the latest offspring from the burgeoning black metal scene in this land of ice and snow to set their dark sails for foreign shores.

With their second full-length, ”Farvegir Fyrndar” (literally meaning “Ancient Riverbeds“, with a long tail of untranslatable subtext),Auðn  continue their fast ascent. Unlike the majority of their blackened brethren from the country’s capital Reykjavik, this young band does not base its sound more or less on Deathspell Omega worship, but rather reaches back to a more classic second generation black metal approach for inspiration.

Auðn deliver haunting melodies and beautifully frozen atmospheres – as opposed to the jarring and caustic blunt force trauma that has brought this remote place in the Northern Atlantic to the black metal forefront of late.

Founded in the bleak winter of 2010, Auðn ‘s talent was quick to be recognised. The band got invited to Iceland’s main metal event, the Eistnaflug Festival and won the local Wacken Metal Battle contest in 2016, while making it to the top 3 at the main event. Performances at the prestigious Inferno and Roadburn Festivals followed in 2017.

With ”Farvegir Fyrndar”,  Auðn not only demonstrate the impressive progress of their songwriting skills but also deliver a clear definition of their very own black sound. Warning: this album grows with every spin and will take a long time to even come close to any limit!
