SHINING [NOR]

Norway’s Shining for over ten years breaks every boundaries. Led by Jorgen Munkeby, multiinstrumentalist known from Jaga Jazzist, the band at the beginning performed acoustic jazz as a quartet. Over the course of years Shining draws toward more experimental approach, plays with Enslaved on tour and presents to the listeners in 2010 their album Blackjazz, soon to be critically acclaimed all around the world. Blackjazz is not just an album title, it’s also description of Shining’s music – a shocking mix of metal and jazz that lures listeners with magnetic force despite its extreme character.
