Shining frontman Niklas Kvarforth recently announced that he is releasing a book titled When Prozac No Longer Helps, which contains every lyric ever written by him in both its original language (Swedish) and in English in a hardcover format, individually numbered in Kvarforth's own blood. The first pressing will be limited to 500 copies.

Niklas Kvarforth himself has translated the lyrics into English from the original Swedish. The first edition paperback will be published on December 7th. When Prozac No Longer Helps will only be available through the Shining web shop and can be pre-ordered here.

The following statement regarding the publication of the book has been issued by Kvarforth: "Far too long I've been pestered each and every day by people from all around this disgusting planet asking if I can translate this or that lyric into English. Up until a few months ago this seemed to be an impossible task due to the poetic style I use when writing Swedish. However, after several months of frustration I've put something truly horrific together and was so pleased with the result I decided to collect them all and make them into a book."

"I don't think many of you are truly interested in reading these, even though you say you do. As we all know, it is 'true' to state you really do care about the lyrics of a band like Shining. But being 'true' is probably the only reason you say so. So go ahead, prove me wrong. And to anyone bitching about the high price, well, it cost tons of money to print a fine edition in such a low quantity, and I am certainly not into charity."

"So go ahead, prove me wrong" !! C'on ... what he thinks he talking to?! a bunch of kindergarten's child!? ... besides his voice and according to statements like this one , he would fits in another job better than this. maybe a businessman!
PocketMetal - 04.11.2012 at 14:15  
He sure talks like a "true" asshole . I'm not even gonna read it if someone gives me for free ...
Sznc - 04.11.2012 at 14:24  
There isn't any reason for him to talk like a "nice guy" either.
Kuroboshi - 04.11.2012 at 15:13  
Better for him to use this kind of tone, otherwise everyone would just say he's trying to milk his fans. Besides, it might be nice for the non-Swede fans.

This is analogous to the time Jiri made a book of his lyrics for a school project and hand-numbered each copy in his semen.
Boxcar Willy - 04.11.2012 at 17:31  
Maybe he'll bleed out before 500.

Elitist crap from a whiny attention whore. How surprising

Every time I read Kvarforth's drama queen statements, I imagine him reciting them like at the beginning of "The Eerie Cold". I find his pompousness to be a light and humorous contrast to the bleak image he puts forth with Shining. It's like Carpathian Forest and Vrangsinn's enormous ass.

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOO glad I got that album without that speech. That would have been a major turn off for the first time I heard the otherwise fantastic album.

I think he should make waaaaaaaay more copies of those books with his blood on it.

Considering the person we're talking about... In the crazy event in which I get such a book: I'd stay the fuck away from the bloody parts.
Valentin B - 04.11.2012 at 20:12  
Wow, I heard this guy was a bitchy asshole but this certainly crosses the line.. it's like someone is making him publish these lyrics so that we can share in the supreme cathartic experience that is reading his lyrics. He sounds like the members of Anus.com all converged into one. I'm gonna quote Necrobutcher from Mayhem on this one.. "I have a comment: FUCK YOU!"
Slayer666 - 04.11.2012 at 20:22  
"So go ahead, prove me wrong."

Uh, no thanks. I think your lyrics are bullshit anyway.

Congratulations are in order, though. He's now officially the biggest try-hard in black metal.

The funny thing is that Prozac has more or less been proven to be a placebo anyway. Source.

Cocaine all the way, baby. 45-60 minutes of real happy bliss, and you don't even need a prescription.

My original copy didn't have the speech, and it was nice to have the first listen without it. Then I lost it and bought the Peaceville reissue that did have the speech. Glad I have it, it's hilarious.

As I recall, keeping your towel is key to surviving in this universe. At least that is what I have read. ;-)
