Japanese metal maniacs Sigh are to release a new album next year.
“In Somniphobia”, the band’s ninth full-length, will be released in March 2012 through Candlelight Records.
The LP is said to be “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”.
Cover art for the new release comes courtesy of Eliran Kantor, known for his previous work with Atheist, GWAR, and Testament, amongst others.
