ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sigmun is an Indonesian rock band formed in April 2011, consists of Haikal Azizi (vocal/guitar), Nurachman Andika (guitar), Mirfak Prabowo (bass) and Pratama Kusuma Putra (drums) mainly influenced by the two founding fathers of heavy metal, the almighty Led Zeppelin and the god of heavy riffs, Black Sabbath. They mentioned their music as freud blues rock, the word „freud‟ comes from the infamous neurologist, Sigmund Freud, whom they admired so much for his unconscious mind and the defense mechanism theory. They believe that the music they make are coming spontaneously from their unconscious mind.
Referring to their influences, most of their songs are based on riffs covered with distortion and overflowing echoes. They describe their sound as "bringing a high gain amplifier and drums into a cave". The basslines are almost progressive but raw and primitive at the same time, the drumming moves fierce and violent on high tempo and in a sudden could turn calm into a drowning bluesy beats, while the vocals sounded like chants and moans, obviously affected by Plant and Ozzy.
While they altogether religiously worshiped the Zeps and the Sabbaths, each member also have their own musical background. Mirfak have always been a fan of the grunge god Nirvana, the highspeed aggression of Motorhead and anything masculine, while Jono is a heavy metal geek who embrace the holy father Dio , Iron Maiden and the uncanny Uriah Heep. Haikal adores the psychedelic echoes and progressions of Pink Floyd, the complexions of Robert Fripp and the zestful spirit of Jack White‟s screech, Tama on the other hand has always been a disciple of Brad Wilk, and praises the likes of Sunn O))) and YOB.
Their interest in Sigmund Freud concepts of unconscious mind and their love for the whimsical world of surrealism are evidently showing in their lyrics. enjoying the exploration of absurdism and juxtaposition in their writings, Dali, Magritte and Chirico might have influenced them as much as Page and Iommi did, paintings made out of hazy poetry and heavy echoed chords.
