NIKLAS KVARFORTH - Book Heads To Printers For Second Edition

Shining's founder Niklas Kvarforth's book of his lyrics "When Prozac No Longer Helps" was published last December and sold out in a very short time. Now, the second edition is at the printers and ready for 23rd September release. The second edition differs slightly from the original in that it contains a handful of minor corrections, and two additional lyrics, one being those for the song “Through Corridors Of Oppression” which was previously omitted, and lyrics which Kvarforth wrote for Norwegian Black Metallers Urgehal six months before the untimely death of their frontman Trondr Nefas.  As with the first edition, the second will feature the English and Swedish lyrics side-by-side and will also be limited to 500 copies signed by Kvarforth. It will once again only be available directly from the band’s webshop in order to make sure that the true fans who want a copy get a chance to buy one without having to pay inflated prices elsewhere. The second edition is available to pre-order now at this location.
Watain’s Erik Danielsson perfectly summed up the depth of Kvarforth’s body of work saying: “The dark and narrow back alleys of the human mind are best explored and translated into art by those who abide in them. Artists who are not trying to hide their wounds or helplessness, neither their lustful yearning for Death and misery. . . This is why Niklas’ writing stands out as genuine; it comes from a sea of darkness in which he learned to swim a long, long time ago.”
Commenting on the decision to print a second edition Kvarforth said: “When we decided to publish the original version, we were not entirely sure that there would be much interest in a book of lyrics, and we were astonished at the speed with which it sold out, every copy having been snapped up within six weeks.  We were even more surprised when we were approached by several people who wanted to translate and publish the lyrics in their own languages, which is something that is in the works.  It just goes to show that there is life in the music business outside of just listening to sounds”.
Meanwhile Shining will release their new album on the same date via Dark Essence Records. More details were previously posted HERE. Link
