Sigh Announces New Album “Graveward”

Sigh has wrapped up work on new album “Graveward,” with an official release date to soon be announced. The artwork can be seen below, and the band also issued this press release:

“Two 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.”

Acherontas Streams Full New Album “Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification)”

Greek black metal vanguard Acherontas is now streaming the entirety of fifth album, “Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification),” which is officially released today via W.T.C. Productions. Hear all eleven tracks below, courtesy of W.T.C. Productions also comments on the band:

“Since their metamorphosis into a new entity in 2007, these Greeks have staunchly upheld the magick ‘n’ mysticism of classic, second-wave black metal.

“Across 11 expansive tracks in a time-evaporating 70 minutes, Ma IoN explores a wide swath of sonic territory, ranging Acherontas’ characteristically windswept style of songwriting to twisted ‘n’ twisting variations of it to, most crucially, ritualistic soundscapes comprising ancient Far Eastern & shamanic instrumentation.

“Taken together, it’s a total sensory experience that effortlessly guides the listener across chilly night skies, barren desert plains, humid marshlands, and the fiery abyss of the unknown. In their never-ending quest to seek the deepest wisdom, Acherontas are here joined by a whole host of incredible guest musicians, including members of Abigor, Malign, Nightbringer, Black Seas of Infinity, Emme Ya, and Tatir amongst others.

“What results is a shockingly bold, daring vision of black metal: ‘Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification).’”
