Shining have revealed the artwork for their upcoming split with Mortuary Drape as well as posted a teaser for the Shining track. Titled In The Eerie Cold Where All The Witches Dance and set for release on Primitive Art Records, the 7" vinyl will contain an exclusive track from each of the bands. The two tracks will only be released on the split and will not appear on any album. The teaser for the track can be heard on the player below.

Shining frontman and founder Niklas Kvarforth said about the split: "In 1998 a song was written which was intended for inclusion on our first album. However, somehow we were not able to record it properly, which forced us to re-record 'Endless Solitude' instead. At the next Abyss session we faced the same problem and after that, the then-titled 'One With The Endless', was left out as we were certain the song had a curse written all over it. Quite recently, we gave it a third shot, and this time the curse was embraced instead of the opposite. A strange phenomena reinventing itself in every way possible, and, for some odd reason, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't write any suitable lyrics, and once again considered leaving it be. I did however have a very close friend of mine in the studio who not only came up with a new lyrical theme for the song but was also given my full blessings to sing it."

Last month, it was announced that Niklas Kvarforth is to be the subject of a documentary which is being produced for release in cinemas. The documentary, which is the idea of Martin Strandberg of Sweden's Black Shadows Film Productions, will chart the often turbulent history of the band, and includes candid interviews with the people who have been most closely involved with Shining in one way or another over the years, including family, friends and former band members. A video teaser for the documentary was released recently with English subtitles and can be seen here.
