I've tried to get into Swedish shining, but something about it just sooooo boring and it seems like it's trying to hard to emulate the darkness of 90 bm but doing the DSBM thing, it seems disjointed and honestly not that great. A few songs aside. I've only tried the first 2 albums though.
Don't bother with the first two, they're nothing like the others. V - Halmstad is usually hailed as their best work. Opinions may differ, but that's the album where they really started exploring other musical elements, like clean singing and piano (Låt Oss Ta Allt Från Varandra is a perfect example). I personally find the vocals a bit exaggerated, almost try-hard, but Kvarforth really perfected his voice into something terrifying and beautiful on the following records.
Sure, I tried first albums and it's totally plain works after first listens.. this is mostly why I rejected them that long time. But tried "V: Halmstad" opened my eyes, for now it's one of my favourites black/doom/dsbm works for sure.
Given your taste I’d agree with the others that Halmstad is where you should start. The Eerie Cold, Född förlorare and Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends may also be of interest to you, but Halmstad is their masterpiece for sure.
After coming to swedish Shining again I can say, I'm confused. Of course it's not true (gay) DSBM, lyrically it's like angry stupid teenager writing shit and posing like he is so dark and depressive, but.. but sometimes lyrics has good moments like they pretend to be something ambitious. And same with sounds: as they are not the thing which suits me the way it is, but sometimes it sounds like interesting variation of Bethlehem or Forgotten Tomb. Sometimes vocals are really great. Also, doom and prog elements, solos are highlights. Damn, two years of knowing Shining and still don't know what I should think of it.
But 1% of people editing tags creates correct genre tag. So, it really doesn't work. Also, try to imagine band "Oblivion" - http://www.metal-archives.com/search?searchString=Oblivion&type=band_name - and see how many artists has same genre. Probably it goes with self titled albums, many of them can have similar titles. For example, last two thrash metal Oblivions from USA has "Oblivion" albums. Same name, same genre, same release, even same country. Weird, but you see.
Take a look at the link to this page. Name of the band is there which means that the name must be unique. This is the reason why Spotify is using hashes to create unique link to a band (where there is no name) *flies away*
Oh how I've missed this sweet darkness, maybe it's strange how I mainly listen to ambient stuff amongst "DSBM" but stuff like benighted in sodom and shining isn't just "DSBM" or negative to me. It's a comfortable darkness and they are true musicians
