SIGH have announced a new album!
Titled Shiki, the new album from the cult Japanese black metal legends is scheduled to be released in August this year via Peaceville Records, with whom they signed in March this year. The album was recorded across multiple studios, and mixed and mastered by Lasse Lammert at LSD Studios in Germany.
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have shared a new music video for the album’s lead single Mayonaka No Kaii.
Speaking about the new song, band founder Mirai Kawashima comments, “The song is kind of a culmination of what SIGH have been up to. Whistle scream, throat singing, URIAH HEEP like vocal harmonies, vocoder, flute solo, shakuhachi solo, Hammond solo and the great guitar solo by Fred – it’s got everything! Although it’s only 5-minute long, it’s a very dramatic song with many aspects. The title stands for ‘a strange incident at midnight’, and it’s based on actual weird experience I had .. Long story short, I experienced midnight twice in one night! You can read the details at the end of the video. We have been working with Costin for a long time, so we were 100% sure that he’d be the best guy to visualize my eerie experience, and how did it turn out? You all see for yourselves!”.
