Shining IV-The_Eerie_Cold CD Peaceville
Shining's fourth album of dark misanthropy and all-encompassing self-destruction (featuring Hellhammer of Mayhem on drums).
CD edition.
Infamous Swedish black metal act Shining was formed by mastermind Niklas Kvarforth in Halmstad, 1996, releasing eleven studio albums over a span of almost twenty-five years, commencing with ‘Within Deep Dark Chambers’ in 2000.
IV - The Eerie Cold, Shining's fourth album, was originally released in 2005 and features drum work by Hellhammer of Norwegian legends, Mayhem. The album also features lyrical contributions from Nattefrost of Carpathian Forest. It was recorded at the Slaughterhouse studio in Sweden and was produced by Niklas Kvarforth and Rickard Bengtsson, who has worked with Arch Enemy, among many others.
Providing a great evolution from the foundations of hypnotic riff-styling, Shining has progressively incorporated more diverse, experimental and essentially non-metallic elements into their music including blues and jazz - affording the songs a greater dynamic, and a more refreshing sound than typical 'pure' black metal bands. Even the vocals have a large breadth of character often missing from extreme metal acts.
