SHINING - To Release Album Of Rare Material

Niklas Kvarforth's Shining announced that will release an album of rare material. To paraphrase Ray Bradbury "something old and wicked this way comes" in the shape of the long-deleted Shining album Oppression. Set for release in September, Oppression will be available in digipack format, as well as limited edition gatefold vinyl versions in different colours.
Oppression will be released on the newly-formed black metal label Colourless Art and Shining founder and frontmam Niklas Kvarforth had this to say about the release: "For too long, some of my work has been in limbo due to idiotic decisions and the worthless people that  proliferate throughout the music industry. And this needs to end here and now. We want our jewels of perdition and the attendant horrific sound to reach all of those who, without Shining's merchandising arm, Legions, cannot get their hands on these without being fobbed off with soulless products of inferior quality, that some outsider has had the nerve to spread without a single thought for our artistic vision."
For those who are not aware of the original album, Oppression is a collection of rare recordings and out-takes, mainly from the early days of Shining's twenty two year career. Included are the debut 7", some pre-production songs, weird electronica by Kvarforth. And,  most intriguing for any Shining fan out there, the cream of the crop is the inclusion of the celebrated but obscure studio track "Through Corridors Of Oppression". Link
