Often hailed as one of Japan's first black metal bands in the early 90's, Sigh have gone on to push the boundaries of experimental and avant-garde style with their progressive music. Heir to Despair is the 11th studio album by Sigh. While the previous album Graveward (2015) was rather symphonic orchestral stuff, Heir to Despair is pointing at the completely opposite direction. Heavily inspired by old, crazy progressive bands like Brainticket, Embryo, Agitation Free, Between, Gentle Giant, Os Mutantes, Modulo 1000, Black Widow, etc., Heir to Despair turned out to be a heavy, psychedelic and exotic album.
It was released in 2018 to critical acclaim from longtime fans of the artist and new ones alike. Now re-released for the first time since 2018 on a single purple, black and white swirl LP w/black inner bags and lyric insert and embossed cover.
