The Worlds Most Imaginative Metal Band is back with In Somniphobia, their most rich, obscure and brilliant musical mindf*** to date. In Somniphobia displays a style Imaginary Sonicscape fans will surely recognize; Fun/addicting rockin' tunes, Lots of intoxicating avant-garde instrumentation, and the good ol' black metal vocal attack run rampant here. But In Somniphobia is no re-run. The already gleefully absurd instrumentation has now been expanded into ethnic territory. Eerie little ambient passages full of boiling bubbles, chimes and other nonsense crop up from time to time. There are multiple saxophone solos. Throw in a few songs with atmospheres of genuine terror and you have In Somniphobia.

The depths at which surrealism is achieved on this record is jaw-dropping. But the listener is not smacked in the face with mind-blowing weirdness right away. The first track, "Purgatorium", is only moderately weird. From there, the weirdness gets weirder until you're feeling the full brunt of insanity starting with track 4, "Somniphobia". This proves to be quite the tasteful move as you get that feeling of slowly descending into a devilishly fun state of madness.

And then there's "Amnesia". A steady, sleazy-sounding jazz metal monster of a tune thats probably the best on the album. And the one after it, "Far Beneath the In-Between" is almost as good.

To be quite honest I could sit here for hours typing out all the things I like about this record. Its a head-trip supreme and a work of immense creativity and originality. SIGH's "In Somniphobia" is one of the most intriguing albums on this side of reality... Highly reccomended.

Up to this point, I have been almost completely unfamiliar with Sigh. I heard a couple or three songs on YouTube in the past, as many do when deciding if they should delve into a band's catalog, but never actually got around to purchasing any of their albums. The most I knew was that they are known for their avant-garde approach to black metal. Needless to say, when I popped in In Somniphobia, I was in for quite a surprise.

I can't speak for their back catalog, but with this album, Sigh are pushing at the boundaries of what is acceptable to do in metal... and it works in every way. With each listen, all of the odd instrumental usage becomes more and more clear. The saxophone, the organs.... everything - it all builds up into a cohesive, nightmare-inducing whole. That's what comes to mind through the entire album. This could've been the soundtrack to a horror film. Not one of those cheesy horror films either, but the really screwed up ones that seem to leave a severe scar. The movies like "It."

Of the 11 tracks, the first two and last two are the only ones that can really be classified as true metal. They're all more guitar oriented, and deliver a contrast of viciousness and harmonious melodies. The third and ninth tracks are (oddly) the "opening" and "closing" tracks, which, in essence, do open and close up the very haunting and and eerie "Somniphobia" section of the album - this could actually have been released as its own album, and it would've worked tremendously well. It is in these songs that the haunting atmosphere is really built up, coming to its ultimate climax in "Amongst the Phantoms of Abandoned Tumbrils" at ~5:30 - ~6:20, which is truly a highlight of the entire album.

Insane in a good way. This is no band more interesting and creative in their approach than Sigh. In Somniphobia takes elements from "Imaginary Soundscape", "Hangman's Hymn", and other previous works to create their most diverse and impressive release to date. Personal favorites: "The Transfiguration Fear", the crime-noir jazz feel of "Insomnia", "Amongst The Phantoms", and "Equale", which is like combining Santana, Prog Rock, and chamber music together yet Sigh pulls it off extremely well. Highly recommended.
