Mastering Kvarforth of the reactivated Swedish black metallers SHINING has issued the following update:
"We have just returned from the Razors Across Europe tour we made throughout Europe. The ten ceremonies and three emergency hospital visits, were more or less successful and we will soon return better and even more determined of your demise soon. We did face some real severe problems in Budapest though due to our drummer and had to cancel the show because of this. However, we will be back shortly in order to fuck you up in a more sincere and professional way!
"We would like to thank foremost URGEHAL for coming along and proving that there still are some genuine black metal bands out there not bowing for anyone or anything, and a massive thanks to my long time partner in crime Attila Csihar for helping us out in Budapest (without you, Ludwig would have probably been dead by now)...
"Some days ago we entered the caverns of Radio Halland in order to record our fifth studio album and if we manage to keep the time scheduele we have set this pernicious piece of malignancy should be finished and ready for release within four weeks. 'V / Halmstad' will contain six tracks of the darkest, yet most controversial, material we have written to date! The track listing is as follows:
01. Yttligare Ett Steg Närmare Total Jävla Utfrysning (Yet Another Step Towards Complete Fucking Desolation)
02. Längtar Bort Från Mitt Hjärta (Longing Away From My Heart)
03. Låt Oss Ta Allt Från Varandra (Let Us Take All from the One and the Other)
04. Besvikelsens Dystra Monotoni (The Dismal Monotony of Disappointments)
05. Åttiosextusenfyrahundra (Eightthousandfourhundered)
06. Neka Morgondagen (Deny the Day of Tomorrow)
"Apart from this we have also recorded a few additional tracks which will be used for an upcoming EP release, titled 'Ett Steg I Helt Fel Riktning', which should be released sometime at the end of the year most likely featuring the video we're currently making as bonus...
"For those still unaware, Casado left the band and have been replaced by Gråby (ex-ONDSKAPT) and John Doe, the king of SG and psychotic behaviour, by Huss. We wish him all the success with his future projects and performances."
