SHINING

One One One

(Prosthetic)

Reviewed by : David Perri
Rating : 9.0

You see the track called 'Blackjazz Rebels' and immediately you hope that you’re not about to be exposed to the carnival black metal that's made bands that will remain nameless so incredibly and viscerally unlistenable. But, as One One One begins in its outright deathtrap, you very quickly realise that Oslo's SHINING has executed a record that is devoid of weakness and instead preys entirely on strength, One One One being an experience that is about a single element alone, despite the album's multitudes: attitude. Like fellow Norwegians KVELERTAK, the Shining is the aural personification of every moment of grandeur without the delusion, this band an absolute expression of confidence in its form, even if that form is, for the most part, an unexplored entity outside of the Shining's collectivity. Basing its latest output on MINISTRY-esque industrial and then bringing it to levels of hell Al Jourgensen never thought possible ("God is dead and no one cares, if there is a hell I'll see you there," Trent Reznor of NINE INCH NAILS, once sang, and the Shining raises its fist from that inferno), the Shining also brings the fuck-you demeanour of TURBONEGRO and early THE HELLACOPTERS and brings it bold, One One One affecting in ways that are total and complete rage-on-rage apex. There's also an experimental quality to this album that makes it so dangerously alluring, the Shining creating art that is what STRAPPING YOUNG LAD might sound like if Devin Townsend was actually insane (and that is by no means a disparaging comment to the man who wrote the absolute perfection that is 'All Hail The New Flesh'). Aside from the unbearable sax that's all over 'How Your Story Ends', One One One is the barbed wire that will cut you, deeply, no matter how desperately you struggle to stay untangled.
