Staff review by

How cult does it sound back in the days for an underground black metal act from Japan signing with Euronymous' Deathlike Silence while the big fuzz was around the norwegian scene? Well, as cult as it sounds, Euronymous didn't live to see Scorn Defeat being released; had he lived until today, he would have been a black metal businessman and he'd be proud of Sigh.

Rating: 7 Prretty good debut album. A bit primitive-sounding, but has some interesting ideas for the album recorded in 1993.
