Sigh - New Album Details Revealed


Japanese avantgarde black metallers Sigh have announced that the band's ninth album In Somniphobia will be released in March, 2012, through Candlelight Records and have unveiled the album cover. In Somniphobia will be the follow-up to Sigh's last album Scenes From Hell.

The band commented on the upcoming release: "This album is by far more musically varied compared to the last two albums. Put heavy metal, classical music, jazz, Indian traditional music, Stockhausen, and Xenakis into a cauldron of hell and stir it, you'll get In Somniphobia. It is a pure sonic nightmare that lasts more than an hour."

That cover looks...intriguing. Looking forward for this release. And who give's a shit if the girl is hot or not. I thought Metal was above that whole female product marketing thing. Oups, forgot about Arch Enemy.

I have an awkward relationship with avant-garde music. Sigh fall into the "I hate this shit" category.

back on topic: good cover art indeed

That cover art is fucking genius! Almost makes up for their poor last album alone.

Their last album could have been better if it wasn't for the production. It ruined the orchestral elements. But this song is giving me some hope. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd4oTZabos8


To me the orchestral elements ruined the orchestral elements (the whole album). I'm digging that song though, and I really like the cover!

But they're Japanese, i.e. cool!



Gallhammer is also Japanese and certainly not cool at all

It's just a matter of good connections (i.e. Maniac's dick).

Yeah, that definitely didn't help either... Still I just can't grasp how people buy that shit. It goes beyond me.

I think the explanation is pretty obvious, though.
People hear about 3 (well, 2 now) little schoolgirls from Japan, one of which is fornicating with Maniac, who are blasting a very primitive/raw version of crust black metal. It's natural that people get curious, I know I did.

Speaking of cover art get some people to think this is some avant-garde record (not AG metal just music) and...link

Gollmy Lights was released before Darkthrone brought them over to Peaceville and before Skitliv toured with Gallhammer. Although admitedly, Gloomy Lights wasn't a very good album.
But I blame Peaceville for most of the bashing the band gets.

Japanophiles otherwise known as Weeabos: you know the type of people who will watch anime for thirty hours straight and declare it the best thing to happen since the dawn of creepy tenticle porn. I do enjoy anime myself but some people just get out of control with that stuff.


Precisely. Except it's spelled weeaboo. Like our resident Wapanese J-Flower Metal tentacle pr0nz pinko.

Album art looks interesting, btw.
