5.0 out of 5 stars Death Metal? Black Metal? Doesn't matter!! November 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Stockholm's Shining is typically labeled black metal by most music sites. While the band has continued to evolve musically, the foundation of black metal is still there lurking beneath the surface. To quote the metalbastard blog: "The band shows that they still do self-destructive, misanthropic, nihilistic metal better than nearly any other band on the planet." Can't say it any better.

2.0 out of 5 stars eh March 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
after i read about kvarforth describing this as a transitional album, i can't say i went into it with any enthusiasm. first of all, you don't consciously make an effin' transitional album. you devote all your attention to the album you're writing right now, and if you identify a discographical trend later on that might mark a particular album as a bridge between two styles, fine, call it a transitional album; but you don't _go in_ to make one.

not surprisingly, the results are lukewarm; the songs just lack character and individuality. the band's clarity is slipping, and all the merits of this album amount to cynical replication of previous achievements. with their strange juxtaposition of self-pity leftover from their "pure" suicidal black metal days and newfound swaggering rockstar posturing (and not to mention kvarforth's constant transparent attempts at manufacturing controversy), shining are a band who are easy to hate even when they're releasing fantastic music--so they're not exactly getting by on personality points when they produce something this grey and passionless.

if you've never heard shining before, maybe you'll love this because their dark psychedelia is so foreign to you. but trust me, compared to older stuff it doesn't hold up.

3.0 out of 5 stars extra long EP March 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The easiest way for long-time Shining fans to swallow this is to consider it to be a great Shining EP with disposable "bonus tracks" appended. Yes, the 1st 3 songs are typical great Shining (though not AS great as much of their past stuff), with the big advancement being the guitar solos, which are good but I found to be distracting; they are of a length and nature to keep them just barely shy of being ANNOYING! But they don't really cross into that territory; they will certainly be noticeable to longtime fans. Technically great, Shining-wise ill-fitting. But this is a band that constantly evolves, remember. There are worse elements that could've been introduced (said "worse elements" I don't doubt will one day surface). In regard to these first 3, I found the initial vocal phrasings of song 1 to be oddly "off"; hard to digest, but one becomes accustomed to this brief incongruity. Yes, "Ol' Nick" does sing quite nicely on this (not being facetious, either!) in some spots, while displaying his normal maniacal vocals for the most part. So, a satisfying ep so far! HOWEVER, when we get to track 4, it is VERY obviously a not-penned-by-Shining song; while it is indeed MeTal, it doesn't fit (and does become annoying with it's boring structure). Track 5 is, as expected by previous album formats, an instrumental segue'. Unfortunately, this is akin to hearing some dork playing an acoustic guitar in his bedroom and hitting upon a melody that he thinks is really super-moody and mournful...and so repeats it again and again ad nauseum, adding some really lackluster effects for added "atmosphere" when he finally records it with his laptop. Yeah. A buncha nothing played WAY too long. And the final track? Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great one from Shining ! February 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since I loved the last Shining CD so much I could not wait for them to put out another. This CD is really surprizing! Straying away from the doomy suicidal feeling a bit this time. There are a lot of beautiful quiet interludes not unlike Opeth. This band does not sound like Opeth but reminds one of them. Almost like a cross between Carpathian Forest and Opeth with a totally unique singer. This CD is chock full of.......guitar solos!Played by whomever Graby and Huss are? They do some pretty twin harmonies also, like Thin Lizzy used to. They are great guitarists.The drumming is also excellent with occasional blast beats and slower beats mixed in. Kvarforth sounds amazing on here. He does nice clean vocals as well as his other ten voices.If you liked V Halmstad get this right away! Too bad their tour of the USA was cancelled due to Visa problems.I would have been first in line for my tickets!
