Groundbreaking Japanese metal act, SIGH, have signed a worldwide deal with The End Records and will release their seventh album, Hangman’s Hymn, sometime later this year.
The Japanese outfit has become one of the most respected and creative entities in the metal music scene thanks to the versatile and unique albums they have released, most notably 1997’s black metal opus, Hail Horror Hail, and the psychedelic-tinged sounds of 2001’s Imaginary Sonicscape.
On the sound and direction of the new album, SIGH frontman/leader Mirai Kawashima says that Hangman’s Hymn is “thrash-metal-meets-German symphonies! Fast, heavy, bombastic and majestic!”
