SHINING unveils explosive live album Blackjazz Live At The Heavy Water Plant

Norwegian avant-garde metal sensation SHINING is set to ignite the music world once again with the release of their electrifying live album Blackjazz Live At The Heavy Water Plant on June 13. The album, capturing the band’s groundbreaking performance, will be available in an extremely limited physical format, signed by Shining’s enigmatic frontman, Jørgen Munkeby, with a dedication to each recipient. Additionally, fans can experience the sonic spectacle digitally through audio streaming and a concert film.


Blackjazz Live At The Heavy Water Plant is a momentous celebration of Shining’s iconic album Blackjazz, originally unleashed upon the world in 2010. Widely hailed as a modern classic in the experimental metal genre, Blackjazz shattered boundaries and redefined the sonic landscape, establishing Shining as pioneers of innovation in metal music.

The live album recording was originally available as a live stream for fans in 2020. It has been remixed by Jørgen Munkeby and is now available in HD. The show was recorded live amidst the historic turbines of the Vemork power plant in Norway, a setting that holds profound significance in World history. The Vemork plant, a pivotal site in World War II, symbolizes the resilience of humanity against oppression, echoing the rebellious spirit of Shining’s music.

Jørgen Munkeby reflects on the significance of the venue, stating, “It’s the freedom rebels against the big evil empire, and puts a perfect backdrop to our industrial music. We all got to be Blackjazz Rebels for a night!”
