RACD 111 - Shining: Shining (2CD)
PRICE: 149,00 NOK

Shining have gone through a radical development after starting out as a postbop jazz quartet before ending up as the uncompromising "blackjazz" metalband we know today, all under the determined leadership of composer and multi-instrumentalist Jørgen Munkeby. This 2CD release collects the two albums they did for Rune Grammofon, "In The Kingdom Of Kitsch You Will Be A Monster" (2005) and "Grindstone" (2007). They very much represent a period of transition and we considered them to be their most original and musically exciting albums, where they freely move between complex riffing, free jazz, filmic soundscapes and modern composition, with references to everything from The Mars Volta and Slayer via King Crimson and Mahavishnu Orchestra to Henry Cow, This Heat, Ornette Coleman, Ligeti and Messiaen.
