At night, when a deer stares at a bright light, its eye will appear to glow. This phenomenon is called shining. Shining occurs because the deerâ€(tm)s eyes are composed of two membranes. During shining, light reflects off one of these layers, called the tapetum lucidum. This reflection is the glow.
Shining is a Swedish black metal band formed in 1996, that incorporate many doom metal elements in their music. Due to the depressive undertones of their music and the mostly suicide-themed lyrics, Shining are often referred to as "suicidal black metal".
