Shining – “The One Inside”

Shining tour dates – as the support act on Dillinger Escape Plan’s spring tour – were just announced and as part of the digital press release was a link to the Norwegian’s “shot in one take in the Mojave desert” video. Now, with a pretty serene setting and a shoot during the bright daylight, you might not expect this metal-meets-weirdo-jazz band to make anything that captures your attention but you’d be wrong. About a minute in, I thought, “Okay, I get it … guys playing insane and artsy-noise-metal in the desert. Is this going to go on for another three and a half minutes?” And then comes the sax. And I couldn’t turn away, couldn’t give up on the song (and, frankly, didn’t want to).

This is good stuff. No Ohio dates which is too bad as I’d like to see these guys live.
