A split EP by black metallers SHINING and DEN SAAKALDTE was released this week by Temple of Darkness Records. The 7" EP comes in a gatefold cover and is available in three different limited-edition versions. The plain black vinyl is limited to 666 copies and the picture disc is limited to 250, while there have only been 100 copies produced of the die-hard version, which comes with an exclusive T-shirt.

Sweden's SHINING and Norway's DEN SAAKALDTE both have the same frontman — controversial vocalist Niklas "Kvarforth" Olsson. Both groups also have new albums slated to appear in early 2009 — SHINING is due to release its sixth studio album, "VI/Klagopsalmer", on Osmose, and DEN SAAKALDTE will release its second album, "All Hail Pessimism", on Avantgarde.
