Shining 8 1/2: Feberdrommar I Vaket Tillstand on Limited Edition LP
Niklas Kvarforth and his band, Shining, have never done things the usual way. The latest offering from Shining is a remarkable new take on their old songs: Re-imagining their original sound and creating a whole host of beastly new versions, featuring a variety of vocalists.
The tracks on 8 1/2: Feberdrommar I Vaket Tillstand date back to the Livets Andhallplats and Angst era in their original pre-production versions, with newly recorded bass and guitars on top and the malevolent brilliance of Lars Fredrik Froslies' keyboard magic.
Six inspiring and other-worldly vocalists have blessed the album with their madness, some of them even in their native languages. The vocalists are Famine, Attila Csihar, Pehr Larsson, Gaahl, Maniac and "Ghoul" Kvarforth himself. 8: Feberdrommar I Vaket Tillstand is a retrospective, but at the same time it also brings new life and new elements to these classic songs and it's a must have accompaniment for any Shining fan.
