When I first heard that Galahad are about to release two albums in a 5 month period and of course in the same year, I was a bit skeptical of how they could keep it up at the same music level with each one of the works. After I had listened to “Battle Scars”, which is an exceptional album… I was more wary of how they could beat it… or at least reach it.

Sarah Jezebel Deva and band will soon release a digital EP called "Malediction" features special appearances by Dani Filth from CRADLE OF FILTH and SOILWORK frontman Björn Strid singing a duet with Sarah on "Lies Define Us".
"Working with Sarah Jezebel Deva was a trip. We definitely found common ground humor wise and musically. The song we did together is still ringing in my head. The atmosphere is fantastic and the melody is haunting. Drop the gothic top hats and get ready for the real deal"! commented Björn
Sigh have been around for over 20 years. Although they’re coming from Japan, they managed to overcome all those difficulties that a non-European or US band was facing at the time and become a respectful name in the metal scene. The band’s black metal days have long gone but that does not mean that they lost those extreme metal elements they had since the beginning in any case. It is true that every new album from this band is a surprise… not matter if you dig it or not. I still remember when I listened to “Imaginary Sonicscape” back in 2001… how impressed I was by the band’s creativity and skills. Perhaps, this is the band’s best work up to now.
