Sigh

Sigh is an Black Metal/Avant-Garde Metal band from Japan. Sigh incorporates influences from many different genres into their music.

Sigh (サイ, sai?) is a black metal band from Tokyo, Japan that was formed in May of 1990. They are credited as being one of the first Japanese black metal bands, when the majority of black metal in early 1990s came from Scandinavia.

Sigh is an Black Metal/Avant-Garde Metal band from Japan. Sigh incorporates influences from many different genres into their music.

Sigh (サイ, sai?) is a black metal band from Tokyo, Japan that was formed in May of 1990. They are credited as being one of the first Japanese black metal bands, when the majority of black metal in early 1990s came from Scandinavia. They gradually shifted from a more traditional black/thrash metal sound, to a more experimental, avant-garde style.

Sigh was signed by Euronymous' (of Mayhem fame) infamous label Deathlike Silence Records and released their first full-length album Scorn Defeat on DSP in 1993, shortly after Euronymous' death. The label ceased to exist shortly after his death and Sigh changed to Cacophonous Records.

After major disputes with Cacophonous over promotion and album rights, the band eventually found a new home at Century Media Records, and released their album Imaginary Sonicscape. In 2005 they released their full-length Gallows Gallery through yet another source, Candlelight Records/Baphomet Records. The band is now signed to The End Records that released Hangman's Hymn and reissued a re-mastered version of Gallows Gallery with revamped artwork and six bonus tracks.

The band is featured in the documentary Global Metal. « hide
