Shining’s lust for adrenaline has brought them to play a live concert on top of the deadly Troll’s Tongue (Trolltunga) in Norway – a cliff hanging straight out into the air above an 800 meters drop straight down to certain death.
This year Shining celebrate the 10-years Anniversary of Blackjazz, described as a "radioactive alloy of jazz and black metal" by the New York Times. To top it off, they have just released an exciting new version of the album opener, with new vocals by the Black Metal legend Ihsahn from Emperor. With Animal they stepped into the mainstream and became more Biffy Clyro than Burzum, more Ghost than Gojira, and more Muse than Meshuggah. In 2020 their whole history comes together to honor a long musical career that has been more adventurous and fearless than most bands could dream of.
