The album title will give you enough information
not to mix up Shining, Norwegian "black jazz" metal band per definition,
from the Swedish homonymous avant-garde metal band.
Live Blackjazz is a nice piece of shiny metal ass I tell you, a
retrospective and long awaited live version of the band's achievements since
Where the ragged People go, their debut in 2001. The fans will probably
already have got hold on this album coupled by a live DVD and will be able to
tell you that the new Devil's instrument is the saxophone.
After listening to this album for a while I now wanted to share my enthusiasm
with you; no matter how hard I try to listen to other releases, it just doesn't
fade a bit, but grows and grows; what an album, what a band! The traditional
jazz instrument and sick guitar sounds, the raw energy and sick raging vocals
combine to one of the best metal you can find these days.
Either you are extreme metal addicted, into industrial or all types of new
sounds, or generally musicophile, you are most likely to be compelled by this
savant hybrid Live Blackjazz and by the whole discography of Shining
