In Somniphobia

by Sigh
In Somniphobia by Sigh
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Candlelight Records
No other metal band packs as many disparate genres into its blackness as these Tokyo avant-crazies: atomic bongo breaks, blues chords, spy-movie orchestrations, opera arias, Catholic mass choruses, gypsy accordions, Men At Work sax solos, "Tom Sawyer" drums, circus themes, classical filigrees, St. James Infirmary jazz piano. Not to mention gongs, alarm clocks, laughing men, panting women, rattling chains, demon dialogues, woozy organs, scrambled shortwave signals, and old dial-up Internet electro-blippery. Disjointed as hell, yet fascinating, and often chewy and gorgeous, despite the montage.
