Despite the fact that the Swedish suicidal black metallers Shining had announced during 2004 that they had achieved what they wanted through their music and broke up, they return during 2005 with a new line up and their long-awaited fourth full length release, "IV The Eerie Cold". The basic figure and very soul of the band remains Kvarforth and, of course, the band keeps on supporting the ideology they had since their very beginning, "suicide, self-abuse and the abuse of the human mind and flesh", with the "eerie cold" being present in every single second of the album.

In my hands I am holding the fourth album of one of the most controversial bands of the underground Black Metal scene: Shining. I guess this band doesn't need an introduction, since it is one of the more known bands in the Black Metal underground. They've earned that fame and their reputation with some outstanding albums and their controversy.

"I Och Med Insikt Skall Du Forga" is one of the best introductions I've ever heard.
Devil may cry.

Hellhammer's drums rips this album apart and is maybe one of the reasons I like this album by Shining the most. Seriously though, he has his way with this LP.

I had forgotten how awesome "Eradication Of The Condition" is.
Christian Bale's voice at the end of the album is the cherry on the cake.

No those were two separate ideas, sorry, I worded that in a confusing way. I edited it.
