No. 38: Shining, ‘Manniska O’Avskyvarda Manniska’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs


There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Swedish “suicidal black metal” band Shining, but when it comes to progression in songwriting, atmosphere and some of the most insane guitar work ever put to tape, Shining are in their own league.

‘Manniska O’Avskyvarda Manniska,’ which translates to ‘Man, O’ Despicable Man,’ was released on Shining’s seventh album ‘Fodd Forlorare.’ If you don’t feel like listening to the entire track, do yourself a favor and skip ahead to 3:33 and 4:36 for two of the greatest guitar solos written in the 2000s.
