SIGH / In Somniphobia (2012)

Sigh continue to surprise.  They make avant-garde metal that’s the perfect soundtrack to films that don’t exist.  This album pulls the listener through a gothic horror drama, then drops them behind the scenes at a jazz club hosting a late night carnival fancy dress party.  The middle part of the album, Lucid nightmares I–VII is so off the wall for a metal band that you’ll wonder where the wall went.  Did I mention there is accordion?  And I think there may have been strippers.  It makes me want to own a wind-up psychotic doll and donate it to a children's home.  If you know Sigh, you’ll know to expect the unexpected, and they once again deliver it.
