SIGH's 'Graveward' To Receive North American Release In May

Japanese extreme metal/noise icons SIGH will unleash their crushing tenth studio opus next month. Titled "Graveward", the eclectic, ten-track offering took over two and a half years to complete with each song comprising over one hundred recording tracks exceeding 100GB of audio to select from in the final mixes.

Inspired by musician/composer Fabio Frizzi, "Graveward" pays homage to Italian zombie and Hammer horror classics. The CD features guest performances from TRIVIUM's Matthew Heafy, DRAGONFORCE's Fred Leclercq, SHINING's Niklas Kvarforth, ROTTING CHRIST's Sakis Tolis, THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL's Metatron and others with fittingly twisted, grave-robbing cover art by Costin Chioreanu (IHSAHN, AT THE GATES, DEICIDE, ULVER).

Already devouring the hordes in Europe, "Graveward" will be released in North America via Candlelight on May 4.
