Osmose Productions has set an April 18 Swedish/European release date for the new album from reactivated Swedish black metallers SHINING, entitled "V / Halmstad (Niklas Angående Niklas)". The North American release will be handled by The End Records.
According to the band, "V / Halmstad (Niklas Angående Niklas)" 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)
SHINING recently posted the song "Låt Oss Ta Allt Från Varandra" on its MySpace page.
SHINING filmed its controversial February 3, 2007 concert at Diezel in Halmstad, Sweden for an upcoming DVD, entitled "Fy Fan För 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 "Låt Oss Ta Allt Från Varandra". SHINING's setlist spanned the band's entire career and the show featured guest appearances by members of MAYHEM and CARPATHIAN FOREST.
