This release also marks the original album debut from Dr. Mikannibal, who was named one of the “Sexiest Women in Metal” by Revolver Magazine, and features guest vocals from David Tibet (Current 93) and Kam Lee.

SIGH continue to deliver their avant-garde metal with the frenetic energy they’ve been gaining worldwide attention for since their inception in 1990. Scenes From Hell is black art metal as it should be: loud, all-encompassing and intense.
