Bassist Andreas Larsen has left Swedish extreme metallers SHINING so that he can concentrate on his studies. The band states, "He has been a great asset to the band during his time with us, and a good companion, and we wish him well for the future."
The group adds, "A new bass player has already been chosen, and we will be announcing more about this shortly."
SHINING has completed work on its seventh album, "Shining VII - Född Förlorare" (English translation: "Born Loser"), for a March/April release via Indie Recordings.
The album will feature the following track listing:
01. Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel
02. Tiden Läker Inga Sår
03. Människa O'Avskyvärda Människa
04. Tillsammans Är Vi Allt
05. I Nattens Timma
According to vocalist Niklas "Kvarforth" Olsson, "Shining VII - Född Förlorare" will see SHINING "tak[ing] a deep dive into the darkest of all musical genres you could imagine."
Making guest appearances on the album are Erik Danielsson (WATAIN), Peter Bjargo (ARCANA) and NORDMAN.
Addict-TV conducted an interview with Niklas "Kvarforth" Olsson when SHINING played Paris, France last year. The clip, which includes performance footage, can be viewed below.
