“I guarantee everyone who comes to my show will have a good time. There’s a saying, ‘there’s no story so good a drink won’t make it better.’ My stories, plus drink, equals killer night out. Besides, don’t you want to know how tomato sauce can kill any STD? I have the answers.“ – Scott Ian

SHINING Streaming New Song

Innovative “blackjazz” metallists SHINING teamed with Decibel Magazine to showcase My Dying Drive, a track from the Norwegian group’s new release, One One One. Stream the song HERE. Plus, additional tracks can be hear on The Welding Room.

One One One — the follow-up to 2010’s acclaimed Blackjazz, which earned a Norwegian Grammy nomination and cracked that country’s Top 10 — is out now digitally. The album will be out on CD on May 28; an LP release on 180-gram black and limited-edition orange vinyl will follow shortly thereafter. Pre-orders are currently available in the Prosthetic webshop.

Amazon – http://amzn.com/B00C9VL3MW

One One One has been described by SHINING front man Jørgen Munkeby as “a series of jazz-metal hits with no fillers” and “definitely the catchiest and most immediate music we’ve ever recorded.” The album was mixed and co-produced with Sean Beaven (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Slayer) while being mastered by Tom Baker at Precision Mastering (A7X, Deftones, Ministry). The final chapter in the band’s “Blackjazz Trilogy,” the album incorporates progressive rock, jazz fusion, experimental metal and black metal influences to create a unique sound, as showcased in the music video for first single I Won’t Forget.

The future is not only bright…it’s SHINING.

 

New DARKANE Album On PROSTHETIC RECORDS This Summer

The Swedish quintet DARKANE combined melodic death metal with technical thrash to stirring effect for 15 years. They just joined forces with PROSTHETIC RECORDS to release their upcoming album The Sinister Supremacy, which marks the band’s first new music in five years, is scheduled for release on July 2 in North America and will feature the return of vocalist Lawrence Mackrory, back in the Darkane fold for the first time since the group’s 1999 debut Rusted Angel.

DARKANE was originally formed in 1998 by guitarist Christofer Malmström, drummer Peter Wildoer and bassist Jörgen Löfberf who, along with guitarist Klas Ideberg, recorded a few tracks for a demo featuring Björn “Speed” Strid on vocals, who left DARKANE shortly after due to his commitments in Soilwork. The band then recorded their first full-length, “Rusted Angel, with Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Dimmu Borgir, Vildhjarta) who introduced them to vocalist Lawrence Mackrory. They made their first international appearances alongside Soilwork and Naglfar, but due to scheduling conflicts, Mackrory was unable to complete the tour and left the band soon after. Over the next few years, the band signed with Nuclear Blast Records, released a number of acclaimed records and toured around the world with acts including Testament, Meshuggah, Fear Factory, Soilwork and Devin Townsend’s Strapping Young Lad.

Stay tuned for more information on The Sinister Supremacy in the near future.
