Sweden’s SHINING is set to hit the road for a 23-date tour during May and June 2019. Accompanying SHINING on what will be called the “Return of the Enemy” tour. will be Slovenian Black Metallers SRD, with no other bands or local supports being included on the tour.

Commenting on the tour the band had this to say:

SHINING are finally heading out for our first European tour in 3 years, and the first one in honour of our 10th album “Varg Utan Flock”, which, upon its release, once again proved that SHINING are the undisputed kings of pitch black, anti-humanitarian art.

Because of the band’s long history of never adjusting to the norm, SHINING have decided to refuse to have any local support acts on any of the dates, and,  instead of having some semi-interesting pay-to-play opening band, we will be bringing along Slovenian Black Metal band SRD, who are newly signed to Kvarforth’s own label THE SINISTER INITIATIVE.

To make things even more intriguing, SHINING are preparing a longer-than-usual show, and we promise you an event full of uncompromising darkness and perversion. Book your tickets today and join us in a celebration of the downfall of man!

All hail the Enemy!

Mist of Misery PR

With their new album “Unalterable” due out on Black Lion Records on the 12th April, Sweden’s MIST OF MISERY have unveiled a video for a track from the album.

The video, for the track “Halls of Emptiness” can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/9tA2_WEGmNk


A
“Unalterable” will be the third full-length album from MIST OF MISERY, and promises to be the longest, and most in-depth work that the band has every created.  Split into two parts, with fourteen tracks, and a total running time of almost two hours, “Unalterable” was recording during 2017 and 2018 at the Forlorn Halls Studios and  in various private locations in Stockholm, Sweden.

Black Lion Records will release “Unalterable” in Double CD  and Digital formats, both of which are now available to pre-order from https://mistofmiseryblacklion.bandcamp.com/album/unalterable

All guitars on StormblÂst and  the clean parts on “Unalterable” were  performed by Erik Molnar.  With artwork by Alice Ruitenberg, booklet design by Marcos Cerutti, and Bandphotos by Nikita Smirnov,  tracklisting on “Unalterable” is as follows:

Part 1
1. A Window Into Nothingness
2. Halls Of Emptiness
3. Heir To Misfortune
4. A Forest Of Disenchantments
5. Red Snow ( Coldworld Cover)
6. Desolation
7. Bleak Autumn pt II
Part 2
8. A Hollow Promise
9. Embracing Ruin
10. Stormblåst (Dimmu Borgir Cover)
11. The Dying Light
12. Within Dark Dreams
13. Unalterable
14. Eternal Bereavement

Mist of Misery Albumart PR

Of “Unalterable”, the band had this to say:

The actual conception of “Unalterable” goes a long way back, with the title track having already been written in 2014. However, back then, we had no idea that we would be using it  as the  title track for our third-full length album. The rest of the songs were composed during 2017 and 2018 and the album was recorded during the same period

This album differs a bit from our earlier releases, both in production and in the composition of the songs. They are longer, darker, and more atmospheric than on any of our previous releases, and with its running time of almost two hours, it is the by far the longest work we’ve ever recorded .

The title “Unalterable” refers to the path of life, unalterable despite all efforts to alter its course, forcing us to dwell in this miserable existence until life’s end.

MIST OF MISERY’s next live appearance will be at Copperfield’s in Stockholm, Sweden, on the 30th March.

Shining studio PR2

Sweden’s SHINING have finished recording their tenth studio album, ‘X – Varg Utan Flock’ (“Wolf Without a Pack”), which will be released on Season of Mist.

SHINING’s founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth commented:

“It has been an ordeal of gigantic proportions, but I am pleased to announce that the recording of our tenth album have now come to an end, and I am currently working on the final visual details before this aural nightmare can be sent off to our label and fuck up your lives.

‘X – Varg Utan Flock’ is the direct follow up to our fifth album, but, as usual it does contain a few unexpected twists and turns that will send cold shivers down your spines. It was an honour to serve for two decades as the grand puppet-master and bringer of chaos.

Let there be Blood!”

Shining Spinefarm PR2

In a statement issued today,  SHINING founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth confirmed that the band had reached an agreement with former label, Spinefarm Records, that would see the label re-releasing three of SHINING’s recordings, which, according to Kvarforth, “have all been unavailable for a few years due to several “inconvenient” matters”.

The frontman went on to say: “SHINING’s seventh full-length album “VII / Född Förlorare” and the “Lots Of Girls Gonna Get Hurt” EP will both appear in CD and Limited Edition vinyl formats, with the vinyl formats having one additional track each.

“But the best news of all is that “Redefining Darkness” will once again be available to those who missed out on its short-lived presence on the record market.  The album will be available in both deluxe DIGIPAK and VINYL editions”.

The deluxe digipak edition of “Redefining Darkness”, and the vinyl editions of all three of the re-releases, have been re-mastered by Andy La Rocque at the Sonic Train Studios, and are now available to pre-order, along with new merchandise and bundles from  www.shininglegions.com

NIKLAS KVARFORTH’s “When Prozac No Longer Helps” is set to be published in French by the Camion Noir Publishing House on the 19th of January.  The French edition, titled “Quand Le Prozac  Ne Suffit Plus”,  contains the lyrics to SHINING’s songs and follows on the heels of the English and Turkish translations.   With a cover photo by Natasha Mediator of Haste Malaise Photography, “Quand Le Prozac  Ne Suffit Plus” is available from http://www.camionnoir.com/

Having tired of the shambolic, and mostly completely inaccurate translations of his lyrics that can be found on the internet, Kvarforth translated the texts from the original Swedish into English and published the first edition of “When Prozac No Longer Helps”, which sold out virtually immediately and is now in its third edition.  The availability of the English translation of SHINING’s lyrics opened up the way for other publishers who showed an interest in translating the work into their own languages.

As always, though, Kvarforth has exacting standards when it comes to all things SHINING, and chooses his collaborators with care.  For the French Edition he chose to work with  long-time friend Nicolas Castelaux, who, in the ’90’s, earned notoriety as the “Vampire of Paris”.  Having served a twelve year sentence Casatelaux went on to establish Camion Noir, a publishing house that specialises in the Occult, Dark History and True Crime.   The two met up recently during the band’s recent French tour and Kvarforth agreed to the publication on the condition that Castelaux himself handled the translation.

SHINING frontman and founder NIKLAS KVARFORTH previously explained the reason behind the band’s decision not to spend long periods of time on the road:  “Basically we want to be able to give our audience the best show possible each time we are on stage.  And weeks on the road stuck on a cramped, uncomfortable nightliner, with people you don’t even know and with no privacy in which to be able to rest and relax, is not conducive to any of us being able to give it our best on stage, particularly myself.  So that’s something we will definitely not be doing.   We have also decided that we do not want to be shunted into the usual venues that every tour seems to hit, but rather to choose to play better venues, with better facilities not only for ourselves, but also for the audience, wherever possible”.
