Shining have have announced that they have officially completed work on their new album “X – Varg Utan Flock“ (Swedish for “wolf without a pack”). The effort is expected to be released later this year via Season Of Mist.
Frontman Niklas Kvarforth said the following:
“It has been an ordeal of gigantic proportions, but I am pleased to announce that the recording of our tenth album have now come to an end, and I am currently working on the final visual details before this aural nightmare can be sent off to our label and fuck up your lives.
‘X – Varg Utan Flock‘ is the direct follow up to our fifth album, but, as usual it does contain a few unexpected twists and turns that will send cold shivers down your spines. It was an honour to serve for two decades as the grand puppet-master and bringer of chaos.
Let there be Blood!”
In other news. the band have also announced the departure of guitarist Euge Valovirta. Valovirta commented:
After six years with Shining I have decided to leave the band. I’m really proud of what we accomplished together but now it’s time for me to move on towards new adventures. I want to thank Niklas & the past and present members of the band for everything. I love you bros. Also thanks to all the fans for your support. Without you we would be nothing. Hope to meet you all again on the road soon. I have some new things coming so stay tuned!
All the best,
