“I’m so excited to play this Blackjazz show at the Heavy Water Plant! Not only is it the first time since 2013 that we’re playing this very special album from start to finish, but the insane story about what happened at this factory during the last world is like a proper Star Wars legend! It’s the freedom rebels against the big evil empire, and puts a perfect backdrop to our industrial music. We’ll get to be Blackjazz Rebels for a night!”

Shining (Norway) are celebrating the 10th anniversary of “Blackjazz“ with a new vinyl pressing. This version of the effort comes with a previously unreleased version of “The Madness And The Damage Done” featuring Emperor’s Ihsahn. The band said the following about that track:

“Check out our new single featuring Ihsahn! It’s awesome! The vocals were recorded back in 2010, just after the release of Blackjazz, but Jørgen Munkeby never got his jazzy ass around to finalizing this special version of the song. Until this year, 10 freakin’ years later!”

letlive. Celebrate 10th Anniversary Of “Fake History” With Demo Collection

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of “Fake History”, letlive. have decided to release a collection of early demos from the original sessions for the album. You can purchase that on Bandcamp.

Jason Aalon Butler commented:

“2007-2009. Whenever I think about those years I smile and I’m overcome with this sense of inimitable nostalgia. We learned a lot about freedom during that era. We worked multiple shit jobs and/or hustled in ways that some may consider questionable just to buy equipment. We found the most nefarious of establishments to call our studio. We quite literally risked our health and lives in mobile death traps we called “tour vans”.

I mean one of our vans had a hole in the floor during a winter tour of America. It was completely metal inside with no lining, and my best friend and I agreed to share the back floor where the doors didn’t lock properly and would randomly open when we were driving on the highway. That’s how bad we wanted it and I truly believe it showed.

In these demos, all we wanted to do was create something different. Different than the primary music we listened to or the “scene” we would be considered in, different than that around us, different than what each other wanted at times even. That’s what made these demo years so special. We allowed ourselves and each other an opportunity to be free as creatives AND as people.

Our effort to be so different was ironic as one of the biggest hurdles we faced when trying to grow the band was our lack of breakdowns and swoopy bangs. But in the end it is what made ll. so special to us and to those who became bold enough to say they liked it. The ones brave enough to come to the shows and let go with us. The ones with the courage to be different within an already sub-cultural arena. Those ll.ifers. That ll.ove.

I think I speak for us all when I say we had no idea where these demos would bring us and that’s the most beautiful part about it. That aforementioned freedom and uncertainty – it brought us to you.”
