  • Print

Swedish depressive/progressive black metal band Shining, which is fronted by charismatic Niklas Kvarforth have revealed the artwork (click on the picture to enlarge) and posted online a teaser for new song from their forthcoming split 7" vinyl with Mortuary Drape. Titled In The Eerie Cold Where All The Witches Dance and set for release on Primitive Art Records, the 7" vinyl will contain an exclusive track from each of the bands. The two tracks will only be released on the split and will not appear on any album. Niklas Kvarforth commented about the song: "In 1998 a song was written which was intended for inclusion on our first album. However, somehow we were not able to record it properly, which forced us to re-record "Endless Solitude" instead. At the next Abyss session we faced the same problem and after that, the then-titled "One With The Endless", was left out as we were certain the song had a curse written all over it. Quite recently, we gave it a third shot, and this time the curse was embraced instead of the opposite. A strange phenomena reinventing itself in every way possible, and, for some odd reason, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t write any suitable lyrics, and once again considered leaving it be. I did however have a very close friend of mine in the studio who not only came up with a new lyrical theme for the song but was also given my full blessings to sing it." Link
