After a 2.5 years, Sigh have completed their 10th studio full length album, Graveward (cover art below). Says the band on the new album: “OK, finally the long journey to finish up Sigh’s new album “Graveward” is done. Here are the artwork and the information. Release date will be announced soon!!! Please spread the word!!!

2 and a half years were required to finish up Sigh’s 10th studio full-length album “Graveward”, which embraces everything from vintage keyboards such as Minimoog and Fender Rhodes to real orchestral instruments.
Each song ended up in having more than 100 tracks and the total amount of the sound data exceeded 100GB.
“Cinematic Horror Metal” should be the best phrase to describe this most layered grandiose album in Sigh’s history.
Inspired by a little chat with Fabio Frizzi, well-known for his legendary works for Lucio Fulci’s movies like “The Gates of Hell” and “The Beyond”, “Graveward” was composed as a homage to Italian zombie flick classics, Hammer Horror Films, and King Diamond.
Of course the musical influence is as wide as ever including aforementioned horror soundtrack composers (Fabio Frizzi, Goblin, James Bernard, Jerry Gold Smith, and John Carpenter), and their roots (Schoenberg, Webern, Stravinsky, Bartok, and Charles Ives), left-of-center rock / metal artists (Celtic Frost, King Diamond, The Beach Boys, Magma and Frank Zappa), Free Jazz (Sun Ra, Albert Ayler, and Peter Brotzmann) and some Central Asian traditional music.
“Graveward” welcomes various guest musicians including Matthew Heafy from Trivium, Fred Leclercq from DragonForce, Niklas Kvarforth from Shining (Sweden) Sakis Tolis from Rotting Christ, Metatron from The Meads of Asphodel and so on. The cover artwork was done by Costin Chioreanu, who worked with Ihsahn, At the Gates, Deicide and Ulver.”
