Swedish black metallers SHINING have issued the following update:
"SHINING are once again entering The Slaughterhouse on the 28th of April to start recording their sixth studio album. Rickard Bengtsson will once again produce now when his and Kvarforth's [SHINING mainman Niklas Kvarforth] differences have been laid aside for professional reasons.
"In other news, no bass player has yet been found to fill the spot after Phil A. Cirone."
SHINING's new album, entitled "Tillbaka P Ruta Ett" (Back to Square One), is tentatively due late 2008 via Osmose Productions. The LP will contain six songs and will feature "six different vocalists," according to a press release.
The band's latest album, "V - Halmstad", was released in North America on June 26, 2007 via Osmose USA/The End Records.
SHINING filmed its controversial February 3, 2007 concert at Diezel in Halmstad, Sweden for an upcoming DVD, entitled "Fy Fan Fr Livet!" In addition to the live footage, the disc will consist of a two-hour "road movie" and the promotional video for the new song "Lt Oss Ta Allt Frn Varandra". SHINING's setlist spanned the band's entire career and the show featured guest appearances by members of MAYHEM and CARPATHIAN FOREST.
