Niklas Kvarforth (born December 7, 1983) is a Swedish musician. He is best known as the founder, composer and vocalist of the black metal band Shining.[1]


As a multi-instrumentalist musician, Kvarforth started Shining when he was only twelve years old, in 1996. The band had released their first EP, Submit to Selfdestruction two years later, on which he played guitars and bass. It was not until the band released their first album, I: Within Deep Dark Chambers that Kvarforth became the band's vocalist.
