After their latest full-length release, it seemed like Kvarforth got it on his hips again. He started with doing a "Danzig" (kicking all other members out) and sought new ones. Fortunately, he didn't complete the "Danzig", but found new members that were actually better musicians than the previous. Then there were all the rumours of Kvarforth's supposed suicide and as dessert, his grandiose return, supposedly kicking the fill-in vocalist off stage and trying to break a limb. Shining (read: Kvarforth) has gone so over the top with his behavior that many suspect it to be a promotional stunt. Who can tell? Fact is, all those rumors created either very high or very low expectations for the fans of 2005's release "The Eerie Cold". And if you ask me they have blown away all expectations.

Shining is the band that have no borders to expose the feelings and emotions, even if the group has been labelled suicidal/depressive black metal, the musicians use some non-Black Metal instruments such as piano and acoustic guitars showing no limits or rules for Kvarforth to obey. The first 4 full-length albums were just great and album by album Shining were getting more experienced and skilled, but it seems Niklas wasn't satisfied with the tool box since he almost changed all the band members and this lead some fans thinking whether the next album would be a disappointment. Well the answer is simply "HELL NO".

Rating: 10 One of those few albums that really makes you take a good look around and ask yourself "Why the hell do I even bother going on?". I went through a short period where I pretty much just listened to this album. My day went: Wake up, put on Halmstad, 7 boring hours of school, Halmstad, Halmstad before sleeping, sleep, repeat. As depressing as it was, it was awesome. If that makes sense...

  Halmstad... also home land of Roxette

haha yeah I've done that too. I've also followed this routine: Halmstad, Halmstad, Halmstad, Halmstad, Halmstad, Halmstad. And The Eerie Cold, Halmstad, The Eerie Cold, Halmstad, The Eerie Cold, Halmstad, The Eerie Cold, Halmstad, The Eerie Cold, Halmstad.

Rating: 9 My favorite suicidal black metal album...

  I never really checked this band out until a while ago, but I think that this album and the previous one, IV, are really great! These are the only two I've heard so far.

Rating: 9 Kvarforth's vocals are so fucking miserable, it's quite potent. Also the fretless bass work on this album is quite nice.

Excuse me, I gotta go listen to something happy.

  I don't find a douche attempting to sing with an atmosphere that tries too hard to be dark depressive at all.
