EXTENSIVE COLLECTION OF SIGH'S EARLY DEMOS, EP's & RARITIES, PRESENTED ON DOUBLE CD FORMAT - INCLUDES INTERVIEW & LINER NOTES COURTESY OF MAINMAN MIRAI KAWASHIMA ON THE FORMATIVE YEARS OF THE JAPANESE LEGENDS.Cult Japanese black metal legends Sigh formed in 1989/90, featuring mainman Mirai Kawashima, Satoshi Fujinami & Kazuki Ozeki

Following initial demos, Shinichi Ishikawa was brought into the band, & Kazuki removed from the line- up. It was following this shift that the band set about recording the masterpiece debut 'Scorn Defeat' for Euronymous' Deathlike Silence Productions, going on to become one of the country's greatest & most revered metal exports. With a journey through the strange & the psychedelic, incorporating a whole eclectic mix of genre styles & experimentation throughout their career, Sigh has remained a vital creative force in the avantgarde field. However, at its core, Sigh has always remained true to its roots of old school metal. 'Eastern Darkness' contains a comprehensive collection of Sigh's early rare works showing their swift musical evolution as well as the strong utilisation of keyboards in their compositional process throughout. The collection includes the band's legendary demo tapes, 'Desolation', & 'Tragedies', plus their EP's & rarities, as well as contributions to various compilation releases in the mid 1990's.

Considering Sigh's well- known regard for UK legends Venom throughout their career, 'Eastern Darkness' also contains the band's own tribute to the 1980's black metal pioneers, in the form of tribute 'To Hell & Back', originally released on tape in 1995.

This edition of 'Eastern Darkness' is presented on double disc CD format & includes a 12-page booklet featuring an interview with Mirai Kawashima about the early years of the band, along with his recollections of the origins of each title contained within the release, three decades on from Sigh's formation.
