The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: Jazz Saxophone Meets Metal "Some radioactive alloy of jazz and black metal" wrote The New York Times about the hard-hitting and genre-defining album Blackjazz, when it shocked the world in 2010 and set a new standard. Just two years later, the Norwegian jazz-metallers Shining release a concert film that answers the question everybody asked themselves: Is it humanly possible to perform their music in a live setting, while retaining the extreme intensity, along with the loose improvisation and the machinelike precision? The answer is yes! The proof is Live Blackjazz. Featuring a single concert from start to finish, we could not get a truer version of what Blackjazz is meant to be. Straight from the horse's mouth, this is the new standard that bands will strive to match for the next 20 years to come. This is what Alive was for Kiss. This is what HAARP was for Muse. This is Live Blackjazz from Shining. A classic for the future. "A Study in coordinated whiplash." -The New York Times "Shining's Live Blackjazz looks as crazy as their music sounds." "Blackjazz is fierce and unrelenting, a slavering beast of an album." -Alternative Press "Live Blackjazz is something of a revelation." -Metal Hammer UK
