SHINING (Norway)

Since their debut on a small Norwegian acoustic jazz label in 2001, Shining has moved on to become one of the most hard-hitting, genre-pushing bands of our generation. Their determination to create new sounds and cross boundaries has only been further stepped up with their latest ear-crushing achievement, to be set free in 2010; a synchronized launch of attacks of a sci-fi drone military army; and an unstoppable force that could jolt the very Earth out of its orbit - that’s what Shining is all about.

After four previous critically acclaimed albums, it's become obvious to all that Shining has created their own unique musical universe on Blackjazz. Joining forces with the technical prowess and extensive musical knowledge and experience from renowned producer/engineer Sean Beavan (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Slayer), Blackjazz elevates and intensifies the vision of the band. Also featuring vocals by Grutle Kjellson (Enslaved), on a cover of King Crimson’s classic “21st Century Schizoid Man” and ”Omen”, Blackjazz creates an undeniable aggressiveness and catchiness rarely found in metal.

”In Frank Zappa’s old house, with Marilyn Manson’s old bodyguard dog lying on the floor in the kitchen, the mastermind mixer and producer Sean Beavan is working his dark magic on about an hour of new SHINING music. - Jørgen Munkeby (singer, Shining and co-producer, Blackjazz)
