Cult Japanese black metal legends Sigh have announced details of their new album Shiki to be released on August 26 via Peaceville.
Shiki, an opus of dark and eclectic blackened heavy metal, shrouded in traditional eastern influences, marks the latest chapter in the Sigh legacy and includes some of the band’s heaviest and darkest material for some years; a fine hybrid of at times primitive black metal akin to early influences such as Celtic Frost amid more epic melodic heavy metal riffing and solos. It will take you on a journey through the strange and the psychedelic, incorporating a whole eclectic mix of genre styles & experimentation throughout their career. Highlighting that Sigh has remained a vital creative force in the avant-garde field whilst maintaining their old-school roots.
Immerse yourself in Sigh’s new world through the first single Mayonaka No Kaii and the accompanying illustrated video from animator extraordinaire Costin Chioreanu below.
