  • STAY TUNED FOR AN UPDATE
    I have recently regained contact with Kvarforth after he moved away from Stockholm about a year ago. This previous news from August came from www.blabbermouth.net and I have not yet confirmed the status of Shining and Kvarforth's related activities. All that is clear at this moment is that the new Shinig album "IV: The Eerie Cold", will be out soon, most likely eary 2005. I've also added a link to www.devilmusic.se in the "Merchandise" page. They have Shining and Selbstmord related merchandise. More info as I get it.

  • SHINING CALL IT A DAY
    Swedish black metallers SHINING have officially called it a day. The group's final album, "IV: The Eerie Cold", will be issued this winter through Avantgarde Music.

    "I have achieved what very few others have with this ill child of mine and I sincerely hope that you will hate the new album," said SHINING mainman Kvarforth in a statement. "It's a legacy over eight years of complete disgust towards every single one of you fuckers out there and will for sure make you realize you can't do better, the chill along your back, this is where we will remain from now on, SHINING are no more."

    In addition to ceasing all SHINING-related activities, Kvarforth has also decided to end his work with one of today's most respected underground record labels, Selbstmord Services.

    Commented Kvarforth: "The firm has been hanging in fragile threads the past two years. I tried to do something about it but failed gigantically, most of our artists are now singed to other labels though, so expect no fucking mercy from these harmful units the coming months! I want to send my deepest gratitude to all of you who supportred Selbstmord Services 'till the end, no fucking matter what. I owe you all... You know who you are."

    SHINING "IV: The Eerie Cold" track listing:

    01. I Och Med Insikt Skall Du Förgå
    02. Vemodets Arkitektur
    03. Någonting Är Jävligt Fel
    04. Eradication Of The Condition
    05. The Eerie Cold (Samvetskvalens Ridå Öppnades)
    06. Claws Of Perdition

  • GUESTBOOK SHUT DOWN
    At Kvarforth's request, we are shutting down the guestbook. Kvarforth believes the guestbook is not needed on this website, mainly due to many "pathetic" entries lately. There is no need for this sort of feedback. Any questions or orders of cds and merchandise can be e-mailed. Also this page will report any news that fans might need / want to know. Very soon more news will be posted here, including tour dates! Stay tuned.
