The song “Jag är din fiende” (which translates as "I Am Your Enemy") will also be released on the A-side of a 10" vinyl single that is entitled Fiende and slated to hit the shops on November 24th. The B-side contains a largely acoustic cover version of “No Rest for the Wicked”, originally from Swedish rockabilly act The Coffinshakers.
Shining mastermind Niklas Kvarforth comments on the new song: “The third track, “Jag är din fiende”, from our upcoming tenth album embodies everything that Shining represents on a musical level. An uncompromising mix of high and low tainted with a sinister atmosphere of horrible unease. Lyrically, this track speaks of the need and means for retribution, making not only this, but the album overall, infused with a nightmarish maliciousness and a pitch-black hatred that hasn't been as prominent on our earlier albums. There is a war coming and this is our statement on what we have in store for you!”
