ALBUM: Shining – International Blackjazz Society

shining-internationalblackjazzsociety

Release Date: October 23rd 2015
Label: Spinefarm Records
Website: www.shining.no

Rating:

Shining‘s newest release is something of a much more stripped down and straightforward band than they were on ‘Blackjazz’, and especially ‘One One One’. The use of a more alt rock and lo-fi type guitar lines with a heavier use of drums gives the band more of a solid exterior. Shining, for one of the first times in their career, use quite structured guitar lines throughout the majority of their albums, and it makes them a hell of a force on this album. However, if you thought this album would be easy listening, it’s definitely not by any stretch of the imagination.

Rating:

The seventh running of the Damnation Festival falls on bonfire night this year, and there’s no shortage of metaphorical fireworks spread across three stages inside Leeds’ student union. A one day event, Damnation is very similar to Bloodstock in style, catering for the heavier side of metal with past headliners including Carcass and The Dillinger Escape Plan whilst also employing a number of post- bands like …And So I Watch You From Afar and Maybeshewill. It’s been a personal goal to make the 10 hour trip up from Plymouth for the last few years, and so it’s awfully lucky that it wasn’t a waste of time and in fact a very worthwhile endeavour.
