Label: Season of Mist
Year: 2015

It’s the ninth album for the Swedish depressive black metal act, Shining, which is undoubtedly one of the most unique bands in the field of ​​black metal. Like the previous album “Redefining Darkness”, “IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends” is very well crafted with impeccable production and the expressive vocals of Niklas tantalizing the compositions. Sick riffs on guitars, massive bass and drums create a very nice chaotic atmosphere. The moments with the clean vocals and the eerie clean guitar give an even more sinister feeling, a weird psychedelia trying to explore you while your mind travels. The excellent solos by Huss and Valovirta really deserve your attention. It’s really a nightmare in a sweet dream that doesn’t let you wake up and enjoy it more and more as time passes. Surely we’re not talking about the same Shining band that started with “Within Deep Dark Chambers” but they’ve managed to create their own phase which is incredibly successful and has so much to give both to the field but also to one’s feelings. Generally it’s not an easily – heard record and needs many hearings for one to catch all the details. What they deliver in the studio is just what you reciprocate in their live performances; nothing more nothing less. I could write endlessly about Shining but there is no point to simply fill some lines, so whenever you want to listen to something different-sick-nordic, invest without fear!
