If You Like Sigh listen to:
Sigh started out as a more traditional Black metal band but with each release they challenged the barriers and boundaries of this genre and their listeners. Probably the word 'traditional' would not be correct as in the early 1990's when Sigh were just starting, Black Metal was mostly the exclusive property of Scandanavian bands. In Japan, Sigh are recognized as groundbreakers in this subgenre.
As they release a new album they increasingly push envelopes incorporating avant, classical, progressive, jazz and other concepts - sometimes into the same tracks. It is safe to say that Sigh can no longer be properly classified only as a black-thrash-death type band without adding the phrase avant-garde progressive metal.
