We are stoked to announce our newest roster editions; the Japanese obscure black metal heroes Sigh and the highly acclaimed Danish black metal act Afsky!
Sigh were formed in April of 1990 and did two demos before the ‘Requiem for Fools’ 7″ EP on Wild Rags, which led them to sign to Euronymous’ Deathlike Silence Productions. During the years band has released multiple studio albums, EPs and demos. The band is known as one of the first Japanese black metal bands and they gradually shifted from a traditional extreme metal sound to a more experimental, avant-garde style employing symphonic, world music, and progressive elements. Their most recent album, ‘Heir to Despair’, was released in 2018 via Candlelight Records.
Afsky, is Ole Luk’s (also frontman in Solbrud) solo project, which is based on traditional black metal, mixed with elements of folk and doom as well as a mixture of wildness and melancholy.
“The music of Afsky is the opposite of down-to-earth, as the sound of the quartet feels like massive stormy weather entering the city. You are shrouded by melancholy and sorrow, and you get completely hurt by frontman Ole Luk, who lives so much into the music that he too appears sad. You get sad to hear the Afsky in the right way. Disgust gives way to the feeling one can get in the body when the black dog comes to visit. This is the epitome of black metal for this reviewer”
