Groundbreaking Japanese act SIGH entered the studio today in Japan to commence work on its seventh album, titled "Hangman's Hymn", due out in 2007 on The End Records. The band will be working with engineer Takamichi Osada at Studio Moopies and will produce the album themselves.
About the new album, SIGH frontman/leader Mirai Kawashima says, "It'll definitely be by far the best album by us. The album is going to be the fastest, the most violent and the most symphonic ever recorded by SIGH!" He describes the sound as, "thrash-metal-meets-German-symphonies! Fast, heavy, bombastic and majestic!"
The final tracklisting for the album is:
02. Inked in Blood
04. Dies Irae/The Master Malice
05. The Memories as a Sinner
06. Death with Dishonor
07. In Devil's Arms
08. Overture/Rex Tremendae/I saw the World's End
09. Salvation in Flame/Confutatis
10. Finale: Hangman's Hymn/In Paradisum/Das Ende
