Norway's Shining, the brainchild of vocalist-guitarist-saxist Jørgen Munkeby, has shape-shifted strikingly since its early days as an edgy but more or less conventional postbop-jazz outfit. These days, the band plies polished yet off-the-wall alt-metal that can come off like a Nine Inch Nails–King Crimson smashup. Tonight, expect to hear from Shining's blisteringly intense latest LP, One One One, as Munkeby & Co. hit Greenpoint during their first-ever U.S. tour.
