EXCLUSIVE: SIGH REVEAL COVER ART FOR SCENES FROM HELL, ANNOUNCE RELEASE DATE!!!
When Sigh mainman Mirai Kawashima offered to do a series of blogs from the studio where the band is recording their new album, Scenes from Hell, it was an opportunity too cool for us to pass up. Below find Mirai’s latest report; here are links to his previous entries:
Hello everybody. This is not a studio report actually.
Finally, here we reveal the cover artwork for our eighth studio album, Scenes from Hell. It was designed by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Mekong Delta, Gwar, etc). We’re truly proud of the artwork. This is the perfect descrition of what the album is about – namely War, Hell and Death!
The End Records has set January 19, 2010 release date for this album.
As reported before, it features a real string quartet and real orchestral instruments such as trumpet, trombone, french horn, tuba, flute, clarinet and so on, and it turned out to be the perfect score to the scenes from hell. We can assure you that this is by far the most grandiose and powerful album by Sigh.
Also, the album features the great aural cooperations from David Tibet (Current 93) and Kam Lee.
The track listing for the effort is as follows:
- Prelude to the Oracle
- L’art de Mourir
- The Soul Grave
- The Red Funeral
- The Summer Funeral
- Musica in Tempora Belli
- Scenes from Hell
