Exclusive Premiere: Listen NEW track from the forthcoming SHINING: album ‘X – Varg Utan Flock’!

Below you can listen - EXCLUSIVELY on RockOverdose - the second track of the forthcoming SHINING album, 'X - Varg Utan Flock', out January 5th 2018 via Season Od Mist. Parallel to this, SHINING are revealing the album cover and complete track-list as well as starting pre-sale for the album!







SHINING mastermind Niklas Kvarforth comments: "The track, 'Gyllene Portarnas Bro' has been in the works since 1999 and is one of the calmer moments on this record. Built around three different parts, it was originally intended for the album, 'Livets Ändhållplats'. It was later reworked for 'Redefining Darkness', but it wasn’t until now that this song finally started to make sense. Lyrically, it speaks of the seduction of the human mind and spirit, the ultimate destruction of the life cycle of the one being seduced. Indeed, this track sets the mood for the violent darkness that follows."
