A limited crystal clear vinyl edition of the third album by Swedish Extreme Metal exponents Shining.
III: Angst blends hypnotic riffs, unsettling vocal anguish, acoustic passages and expertly handled lead guitar passages. 
This was the first Shining album to feature the legendary Hellhammer (Mayhem) on drums.
Swedish act Shining was formed by Niklas ‘Kvarforth’ Olsson in 1996. Already with a developed sense of direction to his compositions and expression of wholly negative outlook & emotion, Niklas created some utterly oppressive material for the debut release, the ‘Submit to Self-destruction’ EP in 1998, when Niklas himself was still only 14 years old.
'Angst' was Shining’s third album and was originally released in 2002. A development of composition was clearly evident here, working in more subtle twists and complexities to the sinister & wholly oppressive black metal. The work of Shining is intended to reflect the dark & destructive side of the world & human nature.
The album was recorded at The Abyss Studios (Immortal, Marduk & Dimmu Borgir), the famous Swedish recording studio run by Peter Tägtgren, The album was recorded by Tommy Tägtgren.
