(New York, N.Y.): Blackjazz trailblazers Shining have revealed a live video for current single “Last Day” from International Blackjazz Society, out October 23.Afraid of heights? Then consider this fair warning… but watch it anyway, since it’s not every day that you can watch a band perform… On. The. Side. Of. A Mountain.
The video finds the band performing on a narrow Norwegian mountain ledge called Trolltunga, located 700 meters above the ground; that’s nearly 2,300 feet!
The band flew a PA system and a power generator to the ledge and blasted their patented blackjazz music to a group of 300 fans and mountain hikers who had made the daunting five hour trip to the Troll’s Tongue summit.
Watch the excruciatingly nerve-racking live video here.
Pre-orders are available here.
Shining… your only choice in blackjazz.
The brainchild of multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter Jørgen Munkeby, Norwegian band Shining have been breaking down musical barriers for the past 15 years, mixing progressive, technical metal, jazz, avant-garde, and experimental sounds with cutting-edge visuals and blazing live performances. Along the way, Munkeby, a skilled saxophonist and guitarist and a graduate of the Norwegian Academy of Music, has released a number of Shining albums, collected awards, toured with the likes of Dillinger Escape Plan and Devin Townsend, and effectively forged a whole new musical genre.
