Reactivated Swedish black metallers SHINING are preparing to embark on a European tour, with the first dates now announced. More shows will be added as they get confimed. Enterpainment Booking have arranged three SHINING gigs in Germany that are to take place in January 2006. The band have, however, not been informed on the exact locations yet, but make sure to visit the group's official web site as it will be updated as soon as the details become available.
In other news, SHINING leader Kvarforth has joined Swedish black metal elitists DIABOLICUM as a permanent member and will take part in the recording sessions for their new album (to be issued on Code666 Records next year). In addition, he will appear live with the band first time ever on October 22 at the Slimelight/Elektrowerkz in London, England. More information is available at Diabolicum.cjb.net.
SHINING recently played their first three shows ever (one in Sweden and two in Norway) and are currently planning on touring until February 2006, when they will commence the recordings of "V - Besvikelsens Dystra Monotoni" (Osmose, 2006), the follow-up to 2005's "IV – The Eerie Cold" at studios in Sweden (drums, guitars, bass) and Slovenia (vocals, piano, orchestration).
