"Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel", the first-ever video from Swedish extreme metallers Shining, can now be watched below.

The video was directed by Martin Strandberg & Niklas Kvarforth, produced by Martin Strandberg and created by Black Shadows Filmproductions & Hill Fifty.

Commented frontman and founder Niklas Kvarforth: "We know we are going to get heavily criticised for some of the scenes. But it's nothing more than you will see as soon as you switch on a television or watch a move, or walk down a city street come to that. But we're Shining and it's always open season on Shining when it comes to people who have neither understood, nor taken the time to try and understand, where the band is coming from.

Just to explain why there is a censored version. Not every country is equally liberal, and the censored version is the only one a lot of fans are going to get the chance to see."




The censored version is available at this location.


"Förtvivlan, Min Arvedel" comes off the band's latest album VII - Född Förlorare, which was released on May 25th through Spinefarm Records. More album details were previously reported over here.

I figured whenever they eventually did a video it was going to be pretty extreme. Wasn't too surprised.

This was pretty disappointing. It's everything I expected, and unfortunately what I expected was gimmicky self harm and drug use.

OMFG SHINING SOLD OUT I WILL HAET THEM FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER!!!!1111

Just kidding. If they want to make a music video, I say go ahead and let them do it.

I love this band. Song and video =

Wasn't expecting anything and wasn't impressed, too. But I have realized there's something really cool about Kvarforth's appearance... just have no idea what.

Creepy girl singing a disjointed version of "You Are My Sunshine", lines of blow, shots of diesel and Kvarforth cutting himself. Sounds like Shining to me. That was a RAUNCHY gaddamn video, i can 150% understand why there's a censored version.

Why is everyone so negative. Feels like a good step from VI. Awesome song!

Was thinking exactly the same thing.

But seriously, yeah, I totally never saw this coming from Shining...
I'm not too crazy about the song either, it's kinda non-depressive and light when you compare it to Shining's other works.

Hell yeah they do! All they need are hookers (unless they wanna put the put the necro child with the dead animal to work), and then it's a REAL party!
