Review: SHINING-“One One One”

By Lane Oliver

Though Norway’s Shining have been around for a little while now, it was until 2010’s Blackjazz that the band started garnering mass attention and turning heads. The album’s thick, chaotic sound combined strong elements of jazz fusion, metal, and a plethora of other musical styles into a down-tuned, eccentric chimera of sorts. Shining has returned this year with the highly anticipated follow up to Blackjazz, One One One.  With such an impressive album to follow up on, could Shining’s One One One actually be number one?

SHINING Release Disturbing And Idiotic Trailer For Upcoming Album

WARNING: THE ABOVE VIDEO IS NSFW! No words. I have simply no words for this. Depressive suicidal black metal group Shining have long been one of my favorite artists. Their melodic bleakness and  unrelenting brutal approach to black metal has lent them my unquestioning ears. The same cannot be said for my eyes though. The above video is a trailer for Shining’s upcoming album, Redefining Darkness, set to be released October 29th of this year. It depicts frontman, Niklas Kvarforth, nude in a bathtub covered in blood whilst engaged in multiple questionable and highly disturbing acts including: a)licking a plastic vagina, b)drinking some sort of substance(blood?) from a skull chalice, and c)acting a damn fool, while listening to some folk song of some sort. Well, if you hang in long enough, there is a quick snippet of new material. View the above video at your own risk! Please excuse me while I go tear out of my eyeballs.
