Japanese experimental black metallers SIGH have issued the following update:"SIGH are currently working on the new album, 'Scenes from Hell', to be released sometime next year, and now are looking for orchestral instrument players such as flute, piccolo flute, oboe and French horn. If you play any of these instruments or you know somebody who could help us with it, please send us a message! If you can record any of them at your house on your PC and send us them in wav files, that'll be perfect! We're looking forward to hearing from you!" SIGH's cover version fo the VENOM classic "Black Metal" is available for free download from BrooklynVegan.com. The track comes off the Japanese experimental black metallers' new CD, "A Tribute to Venom", which was released on September 2 via The End Records. The six-song tribute to legendary black metal band VENOM features the bass work of Dan Lilker (BRUTAL TRUTH, NUCLEAR ASSAULT) and Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, VENOMOUS CONCEPT). Commented SIGH singer Mirai Kawashima: "We're excited to have these two guest musicians and friends of SIGH to take part in our tribute to VENOM. Their work has helped make the tracks stand out even more. Dan plays bass on 'Countess Bathory' while Shane is on 'Witching Hour'. It sounds awesome!"
