SHINING announce EU tour with Intronaut and Obsidian Kingdom

Shining will be hitting the streets of Europe with the Los Angeles progressive metal band Intronaut and the up-and-coming unclassifiable Spanish group Obsidian Kingdom in September!

Jørgen Munkeby from Shining comments: “Last tour Shining did in Europe was by far the best headline tour we’ve ever done. The crowds were amazing, the venues packed, and the vibe was through the roof! This time we’ve added a band package that I’m especially proud of, that I think can take the shows to even new heights! Intronaut and Obsidian Kingdom are both long time favorite bands of mine, and they perfectly compliment Shining’s Blackjazz music in each their own unique ways. These will be nights to remember!”

Shining and Intronaut will be co-headlining, and taking turns on ending the nights.

Tour list below. Some additional dates might be added later:

GLORYFUL post track-by-track commentary (Pt. 1)

GLORYFUL already revealed the artwork of their upcoming album "End Of The Night", now guitarist Adrian Weiss took some time to comment on each track in detail.

Here's the first part of the track-by-track commentary about the album's first 5 songs:

1. Dawn Of The Raven King (Intro)

An intro fit for the album's main theme: mellow cello sounds pick up the title song's theme. Everything's accompanied by a medieval battle-ish soundscape. It's King Guerkin with his comrades-in-arms, who go to war.

2. This Means War

The first track on the album, which definitely leaves an impression after the atmospheric intro. A quite unique song, because there aren't many melodic parts, the main focus lies on the riffs. Straight in your face! The riffs, used in the verses, remind of old Pantera albums. The solo in the song is through-composed from start to finish and that's how you'll hear it live. It's a bit strange for me, because my soli usually develop in the moment, so to speak, even live.

Fueled with the anger, wisdom and energy of all things past, this monumental achievement is the culmination of many years of dogged determination and the belief in the music. This music that we and many others find healing and inspirational. At last it sees the light, uncompromising and laden with passion and intensity that we'll immortalize on our new album. We're happy to officially announce our signing with Relapse Records. They also believe in the music and are very understanding of our integrity, vision and aspirations. On tour right now in the USA, we are celebrating this experience with glorious sound. Join us on this golden road. Thanks to all who believe!"
