Niklas Kvarforth - Shining Frontman To Publish Book Of Lyrics


Shining frontman Niklas Kvarforth recently announced that he is releasing a book titled When Prozac No Longer Helps, which contains every lyric ever written by him in both its original language (Swedish) and in English in a hardcover format, individually numbered in Kvarforth's own blood. The first pressing will be limited to 500 copies.

Niklas Kvarforth himself has translated the lyrics into English from the original Swedish. The first edition paperback will be published on December 7th. When Prozac No Longer Helps will only be available through the Shining web shop and can be pre-ordered here.

The following statement regarding the publication of the book has been issued by Kvarforth: "Far too long I've been pestered each and every day by people from all around this disgusting planet asking if I can translate this or that lyric into English. Up until a few months ago this seemed to be an impossible task due to the poetic style I use when writing Swedish. However, after several months of frustration I've put something truly horrific together and was so pleased with the result I decided to collect them all and make them into a book."

"I don't think many of you are truly interested in reading these, even though you say you do. As we all know, it is 'true' to state you really do care about the lyrics of a band like Shining. But being 'true' is probably the only reason you say so. So go ahead, prove me wrong. And to anyone bitching about the high price, well, it cost tons of money to print a fine edition in such a low quantity, and I am certainly not into charity."

"So go ahead, prove me wrong."

Uh, no thanks. I think your lyrics are bullshit anyway.

Congratulations are in order, though. He's now officially the biggest try-hard in black metal.

If you consider Shining black metal, Sure!

As I recall, keeping your towel is key to surviving in this universe. At least that is what I have read. ;-)
