Oh… so that’s how it’s done?
Take one part jazz, one part black metal, and throw in a twist of industrial, and you have Shining in a nutshell. Not to be confused with that other Shining from Sweden, this “version” hails from Norway. They started out in 1999 as an acoustic jazz quartet. Color me confused, but intrigued.
I’ll have to check out Blackjazz, Shining’s latest album, which is due out February 2nd in the US. Of course, Europe gets all to cool shit first. Thankfully, we have the internet.
Check this music out on myspace. It’s totally worth your time.
