Lots Of Girls Gonna Get Hurt = CD Single = (CDS)
Controversial Swedish black metallers Shining after a long career became more accessible with their last full length "VII: Född Förlorare" which featured tracks like "Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel" that showed a largel inclusion of rock sound into their depressive metal core - pursits cried "sellout!" but I must admit that I really dig this new side of Shining that is equally emotional and catchy in the same time. "Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel" received one disturbing video clip and single where Shining has covered Alice Cooper's "Prince of darkness" that was very surprising choice of tune for them. That concept is further developed on their new EP "Lots Of Girls Gonna Get Hurt" that carries really great tongue-in-cheek title which can explain to you its content: Shining have covered four songs of bands that are threading dark rock paths so in about 20 minutes you will get to hear following tracks: " For My Demons" (Katatonia), " Utan Dina Andetag" (Kent), "Kung Av Jidder" (Imperiet) and "Carnival Of Rust" (Poets Of The Fall). Basically Shining did not change the arrangements and the very songs that much, they have played them very faithfully to the original versions but the biggest surprise on "Lots Of Girls Gonna Get Hurt" are Kvarforth's vocals: he sang all four songs in clean vocals and has done it surprisingly well, he utilized this approach before but it is fully developed here to great effect. I must also state that I am not very big fan of this cover releases as they rarely add something interesting to first and best versions but Shining have captured the atmosphere in very good way so one can even look at "Lots Of Girls Gonna Get Hurt" as one release with its own vibe and feeling that will easily capture you in its short amount of time. I can only hope that this messing with these artists will inspire Shining to put some more rocking/gothic overtones in their music as it fits them like a glove (and their "everybody dies/suicidal black" gimmick really got old), until then enjoy in this very interesting little EP!
