Engaging with a new Sigh album is a lot like being presented with a gigantic trash bag filled with candy. You're not quite sure what's inside, but past experiences have taught you that whatever's in there, it'll probably be pretty sweet.

China was a neat
Indeed. Sigh are the best avant-garde metal band thereby making them one of the most original ones on the planet.

Now who should I call? Should I call Mr. Strawberry?
No, I don't think I'll call Mr. Strawberry. I don't think he's taking calls.

From their Facebook page:

"Heir to Despair" is out today. It's alread everywhere on the Internet so I am sure many of you already illegally downloaded it. Now you all know what I've been saying about it is true. Just give me your honest opinion on the album. Don't pretend to like it after only one spin.


You really gotta love Sigh.

Lol no I missed those. I love their attitude to things though, they don't get pissy knowing people pirate their stuff and don't go into rants about ruining the music industry etc.

When Sigh use flute, do they become Fligh?

In all seriousness though, phenomenal album. Not that they've never been, but also somehow a lot catchier and bouncier than I remember Sigh being for a while. 3:20 on this is a real "riff of the year" candidate.

I loved the music of this album, but just can stomach the vocals. Not the vocals per se, but how they are used... I felt it distracts from the great music going on.

I miss the more prominent sax on some of the recent albums. Flute seems to have taken it's spot on this one.

Wonderful album. My 1st Sigh album has been Graveward, this is my 2nd one. I liked Graveward a little bit more than this one but this album is just beautiful. Gotta love Sigh.
