Shining: Live Blackjazz

Blackjazz was one of the most abrasive, ridiculous and brilliantly crafted records to come out of 2010 in my often too-humble opinion.  Norway's Shining has taken their live act and committed it to DVD, Live Blackjazz being the result.  The band recently released a trailer for the DVD.  All info comes courtesy of Indie Recordings.

You can read my review of Shining's Blackjazz at No Ripcord.


For the first time ever, the raw energy of their legendary live performances has been captured on tape in a setting organized solely by the band itself. Produced by the multi-talented front-man Munkeby, and backed by the same mixing and mastering team as on their previous
Blackjazz studio album, we could not get a truer version of what Blackjazz is meant to be. Straight from the horse’s mouth, this is the new standard that bands will strive to match for the next 10 or 20 years to come.

See the first clip from the DVD here:
