Japanese avantgarde metallers Sigh have confirmed today that multi-instrumentalist You Oshima from the solo project Kadenzza is going to play guitars for the band's upcoming 10th album Graveward to be recorded this year. According to the band, Graveward will be a "very cinematic album, epic, symphonic and of course evil and scary."

You Oshima had this to say about it: "Four years ago all of a sudden I was suffered from cancer and almost crossed the bridge between life and death. Then came the huge earthquake on March 11th, 2011. More than 450 people were killed by Tsunami in Iwaki city where I live. And as my house is located just 35km away from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, I had to leave my hometown for a while. Fortunately none of my family was killed in the disaster and I am lucky enough to have been able to come back home now, but the life was so tough back then that I was almost giving up playing music. Then I heard from Mirai. He asked me to work with Sigh. Now I started feeling the power inside and also thinking of resurrecting Kadenzza! Kadenzza fans, I won't disappoint you!"

The band adds: "We're 100% sure that You Oshima will play a big role in making Graveward a masterpiece!"

I can't believe on that. Finally some news from him! Looks like 2014 will be great Avantgarde year! New Mirrorthrone, new Kadenzza! Yea!

Really glad to hear things are looking up for him. I was just thinking about Kadenzza a few months ago and how it was sad he never recorded another album, so this is really surprising news. I hope he resurrects the band! I really liked In Somniphobia(Amnesia is one of those tracks I can only go so long without listening to) and I'm excited to hear what Sigh is working on.

Well this is good news! glad to see he's doing better. I just hope on this new release Mikannibal doesn't sing; i hate her vocals. I love her as a musician though, she can wail on the sax and piano.

I've never thought she added much with her usual vocals (nothing Marai doesn't already do), but I really liked the singing vocals she did on In Somniphobia.
From what they said about the sound of Graveward, I'm expecting another Hangman's Hymn.
