Reactivated Swedish Black Metal'ers SHINING have returned. SHINING are now officially allied with the highly repected French record label Osmose Productions.
SHINING leader Kvarforth last year announced the death of the band due to many unpleasant circumstances which have been prominent the past years, both within the band and around him personally. It was said that their album "IV - The Eerie Cold" (Avantgarde, 2005) would be their last. Shortly after the CD's completion, members Phil A. Cirone and Hellhammer (MAYHEM) left the band. Now SHINING return with a basically entirely new lineup consisting of Ludvig Hvit (SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, FIREBIRD) on drums, John Doe (CRAFT, TWIN EARTH) on guitar, Hallander on bass and Casado on guitar. The reason for this new lineup is simply because there is a need to play live, which never would have worked out in the long run with the previous members considering the distance between them. A new era has begun to take shape.
SHINING recently played their first three shows ever (one in Sweden and two in Norway) and are currently planning on touring until early 2006, when they will comence the recordings of "V - Besvikelsens Dystra Monotoni" (Osmose, 2006), the follow-up to 2005's "IV - The Eerie Cold". The group's official web site has been updated after a long time of silence from the SHINING camp. Included are new promo photos and live photos from the three recent live performances.
