SIGH Releasing New Album "In Somniphobia" in March

From Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles:


Japan's SIGH have announced that their new album, In Somniphobia, will be released in March, 2012, via Candlelight Records.

In Somniphobia is a sonic nightmare that lasts for more than an hour. The musical direction is pretty much far removed from that of the last two albums, Scenes From Hell and Hangman's Hymn. It is not easy to describe its direction, but probably one can say that it is something between Imaginary Sonicscape, Hail Horror Hail and Gallows Gallery, or rather, simply a nightmarish version of Imaginary Sonicscape.

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. This is surrealistic, ethnic, druggy, atmospheric and definitely scary! Lots of vintage gems were used in the making of the album such as a Minimoog, Prophet-5, Clavinet D-6, Roland RE-201 Space Echo etc. along with some ethnic instruments like Indian Sarangi, Sitar, Tampura, and Tabla.

Kam Lee (ex-MASSACRE, BONE GNAWER, etc.) and Metatron (THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL) cooperated with the lyrics and the vocals for 'Lucid Nightmares'. The album artwork, by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ATHEIST, ANACRUSIS), can be seen below:

WHOOT! I can't wait to get home and check it out. "Scenes From Hell" was a masterpiece, I forgot what track it was, but the intro reminded me of an old school horror movie theme song with ghosts and shit.

Finally listening to it! Sounds pretty awesome, definitely a different direction than their previous stuff, but still sounds very good! Cannot wait to hear the full album.

And this was the song I was talking about, I love the intro of it
