Shining Posts Music Video For "Fortvivlan, Min Arvede"

Sweden’s Shining has released a music video for the first time in the band's 15 year history. The video for the track “Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel” can be viewed in the player below, and was directed by Martin Strandberg and Niklas Kvarforth, produced by Martin Strandberg, and created by Black Shadows Film productions. The track is taken from the new album “VII / Född Förlorare.” The censored version is also available here.

“We know we are going to get heavily criticized for some of the scenes” commented front man and founder Niklas Kvarforth, “but it’s nothing more than you will see as soon as you switch on a television or watch a move, or walk down a city street come to that. But we’re Shining and it’s always open season on Shining when it comes to people who have neither understood, nor taken the time to try and understand, where the band is coming from."

Shining's seventh full length album “VII / Född Förlorare,” which in English means “Born Loser,” was released this month on the band’s new label Spinefarm Records, and includes guest appearances from Erik Danielsson of Watain, Chris Amott of Arch Enemy, Peter Bjärgö of Arcana, and Swedish pop star Nordman. The band also recently announced that it would be releasing its first ever single.
