Controversial Swedish metal band Shining just completed work on a tenth studio album. The album, titled “X – Varg Utan Flock” (“Wolf without a Pack”), will be released worldwide by Season of Mist.
Regarding the new album, Shining mastermind Niklas Kvarforth comments: “It has been an ordeal of gigantic proportions, but I am pleased to announce that the recording of our tenth album have now come to an end, and I am currently working on the final visual details before this aural nightmare can be sent off to our label and fuck up your lives.
“‘X – Varg Utan Flock’ is the direct follow up to our fifth album, but, as usual it does contain a few unexpected twists and turns that will send cold shivers down your spines. It was an honour to serve for two decades as the grand puppet-master and bringer of chaos. Let there be blood!”
Shining was also featured as the focal point of a new documentary produced by Art House Films. Titled “Cold Void,” the documentary is a personal portrait of Kvarforth, the man behind headlines that have included suicide and self-destruction, addiction, bipolar disorder, passion and schizophrenia. “Cold Void” is set for release in the fall and DVD and VOD.
