With the release date of SHINING’s ninth full-length album “IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends” set for the 20th of April on Season of Mist, a track from the album has been debuted today. Commenting on the track, Kvarforth had this to say: “The time has come to share a little bit of the darkness that will infect the world’s population in a few months. The song chosen for this specific event is called “Vilja & Dröm”. The track reminds me of our earlier days, when I was still mostly focusing on metal. However, it also represents a great leap into the terrible shift-shaping darkness that is our ninth album!”  “Vilja & Dröm”  can be heard for the next five days at the following links, before being uploaded onto the band’s SoundCloud page at
