The release date of SHINING’s ninth full-length album, which will be titled “IX / Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends” and will appear on Season of Mist,  has been set for the 20th April.

Commenting on the album, SHINING’s 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  has also re-launched their website which  has undergone a complete makeover  by  the Japanese design company Ogino Design ( ) who will also be responsible for keeping the site regularly updated with news, live listings etc. , under supervision from the band.  The re-launched website can be found at

Kvarforth recently announced that long-time SHINING collaborator Martin Strandberg, who was 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 who is currently working on a documentary about the band, is directing a video for a track from “IX / Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends”.  Photos from the video shoot can be found at

SHINING will embark on a series of Japanese dates in January, and will head for Canada in April to appear at the Messe des Morts Festival in Montreal, as well as making a series of festival appearances.  All dates so far confirmed can be seen at, where those currently being discussed will be added on a regular basis
