SHINING is one of Sweden’s leading black metal bands, and founder/vocalist Niklas Kvarforth continues to be one of heavy metal’s most notorious Agent Provocateurs. Kvarforth incites as much consternation among the “true” as he does fanaticism among the soon-to-be soiled minds of his growing legions of devotees. His antics, opinions, and sometimes mere presence is accompanied by the gnashing teeth and wailing, tone-deaf opinions of the self-proclaimed genre “elite”.
