Swedish metal act SHINING have unleashed the first track taken from forthcoming album, “X – Varg Utan Flock” (due out out January 5th). The song “Jag Är Din Fiende” will also be released on the A-side of a 10″ vinyl single, entitled “Fiende” and coming out November 24th. Check it out HERE.
Shining mastermind Niklas Kvarforth comments on the new song: “The third track, ‘Jag Är Din Fiende,’ from our upcoming tenth album embodies everything that Shining represents on a musical level. An uncompromising mix of high and low tainted with a sinister atmosphere of horrible unease.
“Lyrically, this track speaks of the need and means for retribution, making not only this, but the album overall, infused with a nightmarish maliciousness and a pitch-black hatred that hasn’t been as prominent on our earlier albums. There is a war coming and this is our statement on what we have in store for you!”
Formed in 1996, Shining is a Swedish Extreme band that incorporates many doom metal elements in the music. Due to the depressive undertones of their music and the mostly suicide-themed lyrics, Shining’s music is often referred to as “suicidal black metal” although the band themselves would point out that they are not a Black Metal band.
