SHINING picture
Shining is a Swedish black metal band originally formed back in 1996 by Niklas Kvarforth. Their lyrical themes are based on depression, suicide and angst, and their live performances contain large amounts of self-mutilation that they invite the audience to take part in.

SHINING IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends

Album · 2015 · Black Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends" is the 9th full-length studio album by Swedish extreme metal act Shining. The album was released through Season of Mist in April 2015. While there are 3 years between this one and it´s predecessor "Redefining Darkness (2012)", Shining has kept busy in the intermediate years with the release of the "8 ½ – Feberdrömmar i vaket tillstånd (2013)" album, which is an album with re-recordings of earlier material, and the release of a couple of splits/EPs. There have been a couple of lineup changes since the last album too as Rainer Tuomikanto has replaced Ludwig Witt as the band´s new drummer, and Euge Valovirta has been added to the lineup has second guitarist. The usual suspects are Niklas Kvarforth (vocals, guitars), Peter Huss (guitars), and Christian Larsson (bass).

Stylistically the music on "IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends" is pretty much Shining as we know them (in recent years). The depressive Swedish language lyrics are performed passionately by frontman Niklas Kvarforth who successfully combines anger and despair when he sings both his raw and clean vocals. You never quite know where you have him. One moment it sounds like he is ready to cut your throat and the next he sounds like he is about to slash his own wrists. The guitars pump out meaty heavy riffs, but also atmospheric riffs and acoustic sections, and lead themes and solos. The well playing rhythm section glues it all together.

The material is well written and while it´s based in black metal, there are also elements of death, thrash, doom, and progressive metal in the music. Acoustic sections have been a part of Shining´s material for years, and that trend continues on "IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends". This time even to the extent where they are occasionally leaving metal territory and entering depressive rock territory. Not completely unlike the Norwegians in Seigmen, which is an act main composer Kvarforth has admired for years, and who Shining even did a cover of on "VI: Klagopsalmer (2009)". So the material is quite varied, and occasionally even a bit quirky (both "Människotankens vägglösa rum" and "Inga broar kvar att bränna" fit that description).

"IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends" is well produced, featuring a powerful, clear, and professional sounding production, which suits the music well. So upon conclusion it´s another high quality release by Shining. I don´t think it´s their strongest output in recent years, but both new listeners and fans should still be able to have a blast with this one. A 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

Klagopsalmer finds Shining persisting with the musical approach they'd adopted on Halmstad, and whilst it doesn't quite feel as fresh as it did on that album, it's still nice to hear them really going to town on embellishing the quieter sections of their loud/quiet blueprint. Shining could probably be accused of sticking to their basic formula once again, but the additions to the formula attained during the Halmstad era have clearly stuck, and consequently their sound still feels moderately refreshed here. I don't think this album is the equal of Halmstad, which I would personally recommend to most listeners as their starting point in exploring the miserable world of Shining, but it's not bad either.

Emerging in the wake of the whole "Ghoul" debacle (in which Kvarforth and Shining tried their best to convince the world that Kvarforth had committed suicide without ever directly stating it for the sake of plausible deniability when the sham was revealed), V: Halmstad reveals a rejuvenated and refreshed Shining. It's not that their formula has radically changed here, but the application of the formula is masterful and compelling. In particular, the band have clearly honed their skills when it comes to the quieter instrumental sections, and the tightened up sound there really helps the compositions hang together. If Kvarforth needed to pull a tasteless prank on the black metal scene in order to produce this album, I'm inclined to forgive him when the results are this good.

With some of its calmer tracks approaching post-rock territory (complete with found audio snippets a la Godspeed You Black Emperor), Shining's fourth album is a confident application of what had by this point become a tightly optimised blueprint. It's a solid work, though it still doesn't quite represent a major creative breakthrough in the band's music; if anything, it risks creating the impression that the band were stuck in a rut at this point and only just about manages to avoid this. You have to wonder whether Kvarforth's infamous "Ghoul" stunt that followed the release of this album wasn't at least in part motivated by a desire to shake off the cobwebs and do something a little different.

Warthur
Shining's second album is in most respects a reiteration of the formula of their debut, once again offering desperate scrabbling outbursts of black metal in between despairing acoustic passages. The main development here over Within Deep Dark Chambers is in a mildly greater level of polish to the production, and a deadening of the fury of the black metal sections, sinking even deeper into the melancholy, lethargic atmosphere that makes these early albums of theirs a simultaneously fascinating and worrying listen. By the end of the listen most listeners will feel that Kvarforth is badly in need of a hug; whether you consider this a positive or not is probably key to whether the whole "depressive black metal" concept is for you or not.
