Shining confirm release of seventh album

Shining, the extreme metal outfit founded & fronted by Niklas Kvarforth, will release their new album, ‘Born Loser’, through Spinefarm Records on May 23rd.

Guests on the album – which features recently-aired track ‘Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel’ (‘Despair, My Heritage’) – include Watain’s Erik Danielsson, Chris Amott of Arch Enemy fame, plus Peter Bjärgö of Arcana & Nordman, one of Sweden’s biggest pop stars.

Kvarforth, who has written all of the music & lyrics for ‘Born Loser’, has also confirmed that, generally speaking, he now wishes to concentrate all of his efforts on Shining…

Recorded over a three-year period at Slaughterhouse Studios in Sweden with producer Rickard Bengtsson, this is probably the darkest album to appear under the ‘Shining’ banner; says Kvarforth…

“This new album is really a natural successor to the fifth album, ‘V / Halmstad’, rather than the last release, ‘VI / Klagopsalmer’, which I have always thought of more as an experiment both in terms of writing & performance.”

Shining have confirmed four Finnish dates for May, having recently returned from a UK tour with Watain.
