Recently signed to Spinefarm Records, Denmark’s ESSENCE has shed light on their new album. The thrashing Danes’ forthcoming full-length has been entitled “Prime” and it will be released on October 2nd, 2015. The album cover and tracklisting can be found below.

Narrowing the gap between the poppy energy of The Offspring and the youthful vehemence of early Metallica and Slayer, Essence's third album is a prime example of how a riveting combo of melodic and catchy, yet wildly thrashing metal is done.

SHINING play live concert on deadly mountain top

This Sunday June 21st, on the solstice and longest day of the year, the Norwegian Blackjazz band Shining played a world’s first concert on top of a grandiose mountain structure hanging out 700 meters above the ground, called Trolltunga (“Troll’s Tongue”).

The band flew up a PA system and power generator, and blasted their patented Blackjazz music to a group of 300 fans and mountain hikers who had taken on the daunting task of walking the five hour trip to the mountain top.

Shining’s front man Jørgen Munkeby commented to Norwegian TV and news after the show: “This is the craziest thing I’ve ever been part of! First of all I’m happy that we’re all still alive! But I’m also happy that we got all the technical aspects of this to work, as it’s no easy task to plan a full rock and metal concert on top of a freaking mountain!”
