SHINING are now revealing the first video featuring a track taken from their acclaimed new full-length “IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends“, which has been released on the 20th of April 2015.
The brutal imagery “Vilja & Dröm” is following the Swede’s tradition to hold an artistic mirror up to the face of humankind in order to throw its ugly reflexion back onto itself: homo homini lupus est. The clip has been directed by Martin Strandberg and is available for streaming above.
Niklas Kvarforth comments: “Apart from filming the band stuff in Helsinki, our director and long time collaborator, Martin Strandberg was given the opportunity to search and purchase additional material from the archives of an official TV station”, relates the mastermind. “Of the sequences that have been used in the video, about 75% of them have actually been shown on the late evening news. Those people complaining about the content should maybe open their eyes to what is being broadcast for everyone, including kids and those faint-of-heart, to see on a daily basis. You know, regardless of our opinion on ANY of these events, one should take into consideration that this is what our world actually looks like today. Anyway, enjoy the video and put your hands together in prayer for the end of everything and ALL.”
SHINING have created a t-shirt for “Vilja & Dröm”, which can be ordered here.
