About Sigh:

For over two decades, Sigh has been transcending the confines of extreme metal. Forged in 1989, in Tokyo, Japan, the band was initially signed by Euronymous’ infamous Deathlike Silence Records on which they released their debut full-length, Scorn Defeat, in 1993. Sigh went on to release records via various imprints including Cacophonous, Century Media, Baphomet, and The End before making Candlelight Records their label home with the release of 2012’s crushing, critically adored In Somniphobia and this year’s Graveward.
