The 10″ vinyl single ‘Fiende’, slated for release on the 24th of November, is the first excerpt from the forthcoming SHINING album ‘X – Varg Utan Flock’, which will be released on January 5th 2018. The A-side features the album track «Jag Är Din Fiende» and delivers a raw and brutal sound contrasting with a surprisingly progressive guitar solo. The B-side contains a largely acoustic cover version of «No Rest For The Wicked», originally from Swedish rockabilly act The Coffinshakers.
SHINING mastermind Niklas Kvarforth comments: «The third track, ‘Jag Är Din Fiende’, from our upcoming tenth album embodies everything that SHINING represents on a musical level. An uncompromising mix of high and low tainted with a sinister atmosphere of horrible unease. Lyrically, this track speaks of the need and means for retribution, making not only this, but the album overall, infused with a nightmarish maliciousness and a pitch-black hatred that hasn’t been as prominent on our earlier albums. There is a war coming and this is our statement on what we have in store for you!»
