Shining (SWE) have announced a January 05th release date for their new album “X – Varg Utan Flock” through Season Of Mist. The title translates to ‘wolf without a pack’ and a song from it titled “Jag Är Din Fiende” (translation: ‘I Am Your Enemy’) is streaming below. The band’s Niklas Kvarforth commented
“The third track, ‘Jag Är Din Fiende‘, from our upcoming tenth album embodies everything that Shining represents on a musical level. An uncompromising mix of high and low tainted with a sinister atmosphere of horrible unease. Lyrically, this track speaks of the need and means for retribution, making not only this, but the album overall, infused with a nightmarish maliciousness and a pitch-black hatred that hasn’t been as prominent on our earlier albums. There is a war coming and this is our statement on what we have in store for you!”
Before the album’s release, the group will issue a new 10″ EP titled “Fiende” on November 24th. That outing will feature the below track as well as an acoustic cover of The Coffinshakers‘ “No Rest For The Wicked“. You can pre-order that here.
