Sigh’s latest album, In Somniphobia, has wrinkled my brain. After reviewing a bunch of straight up metal albums, I’m suddenly faced with a barrage of instruments, genres, concepts, soundscapes, and yes, even a saxophone solo. Suddenly I have to think about things. Catchy riffs and sing along choruses are no longer the order of the day – we’ve gone far beyond that. Imagine black metal with, well, everything bolted on.
