NO SHINING POLL!?

I've listened to few albums by Shining, and from what I heard I think I enjoyed II the most, specially songs like, Annu Ett Steg N?rmare Total Utfrysning, Dod, and Svart, so I voted for II.

V will win this hands down, even though III is the superior record ;]

What's the big deal about V anyway? it's just an average album if you ask me.

"V - Halmstad" is one of my favourite albums ever. It has everything a Shining album needs. The lyrics are great, the music is catchy as hell, yet depressive and Kvarforth's vocals are better and more emotional than before. Let's not forget that "Låt oss ta allt från varandra" is one of the best songs ever and has the best lyrics ever written in my opinion.

People will probably throw razorblades at me, but I think the second best album by Shining is actually "VI - Klagopsalmer".

DODGE, BITCH!

III wins by a microscopic hair. V is catchier, I dig Kvarfoth's vocals more and it's just more varied and interesting overall, but III is just a piece of chocking, oppressive sickness in it's purest form.

It's very close between IV and V for me... I voted V in the end though. I've only been into this band for maybe half a year, so I don't know their discography inside out, but III and VI are also very good...

Never gave a fuck at this band, as I hate depressive Black Metal.

They went more prog and the songwritting overall got more complex without losing their original touch, which can't be said about the albums that came after that are just going downhill, no passion now.

I have to give the albums a new listen but right now it feels like III, IV or V are the best ones to me.

So do I but III has something special about it. You could give it a go and see what you think. I can count how many DSBM bands I like on one hand and still have digits left over.

It's funny, I don't even consider Xasthur DSBM, even though I suppose they are. In my mind it's more ambient black metal. But yeah I like Xasthur.

Yeah, it's kind of in between but tbh I don't know what DSBM really is musically...

*shrugs* Though I usually know it because I don't like it. Xasthur is far murkier and grittier than 99% of overly emphatic DSBM bands.

The thing that gets me is that I just know when a bm band is dsbm but I can't explain why musically.

III easily for me as well. I think II and III get less recognition because less people have heard them.
