More black metal?
Shining is pretty famous, and even though I try to make a point out of not posting albums everyone already heard I decided to post this one. One of Kvarforth's earlier works released when he was only 19~ years old. While he is extremely notorious for his album "V: Halmstad", extremely acclaimed by fans and critics alike, I almost still prefer this one. I don't think everyone has heard this earlier album. It's more black metal ("Halmstad" actually being doom metal rather than black metal) similar to atmospheric black metal and mid-burzum ("Hvis Lyset Tar Oss", "Filosofem" etc.) through almost ritualistic repetetion, highly distorted guitars which almost only become a soundscape while still having legible melodies and riffs. With screams/growls on top. Simple yet effective production. It almost comes off as minimalistic. It definitely has a glow his other albums lack. In the same way it lacks some of what his later albums offer.
Speaking of Kvarforth as a person, I think he is hilarious. Not in the sense that I am laughing at him, rather I am laughing with him at all the little fuckers who take him seriously. He is the greatest troll ever to have existed.

Okay, enough nostalgia for a while.
