Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Just as Dodheimsgard's 666 International attempts to fuse industrial music and black metal from a black metal direction, Shining's Blackjazz tries the same experiment from the perspective of an industrial musician, and of the two experiments I think this is the more successful one. With keyboards that sound like guitars, guitars that sound like keyboards, and a wall of noise which shifts between industrial and black metal modes on a whim, the group have produced a complex soundscape with sufficient variety that there's space for a King Crimson cover at the end of the album which seems bizarrely appropriate given the howling cacophony that precedes it. Not to everyone's taste, but if it is to your taste you'll love it to bits.

Shining's BLACKJAZZ is an album that I found almost laughably bad on first listen, but I find now that it has really grown on me. I appreciate the aesthetic and the instrument tones, particularly. This "avant-garde black metal meets free jazz meets Zu" approach is a new sound for Norway's Shining (not to be mistaken for the Swedish black metal band), and I think it works quite well for them. BLACKJAZZ is a very high-energy, loud album that incorporates - along with the aforementioned genres - elements of electronic music, which end up quite interesting with distorted, growled vocals overtop.

The only track I found remotely weak was the cover of King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man; the rest of the album definitely fits with my current tastes. However, I could easily see this as a love/hate album for most people.
