SHINING Taps GORGOROTH's KING For Forthcoming Album

Swedish black metallers SHINING have tapped GORGOROTH's King Ov Hell (real name: Tom Cato Visnes) to play bass on their upcoming sixth studio album, entitled "Tillbaka P Ruta Ett" (Back to Square One). The CD will be recorded at The Slaughterhouse studios with producer Rickard Bengtsson beginning on April 28.

"Tillbaka P Ruta Ett" 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.

SHINING has yet to find a replacement for bassist Phil A. Cirone who left the band last year.

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.
