This is an archive of the band profile for The Final Sigh.
Formed in 2003, The Final Sigh have taken massive steps in the underground and mainstream music channels. From self financed EP releases to major exposure which includes splits with Corpo's RSJ, stateside publication with Rotting Corpse Records' Raw Aggression compilation and maintaining a presence on Chicago's Metalworks Radio. This was followed up with the critically acclaimed debut album "If You're Not Part of the Solution, You're Part of the Problem" released worldwide in May 2005 through Anticulture Records. During this time the band gained further exposure including a Metal Hammer profile of the band and a number of Radio appearances including Total Rock and 4Q Radio.

Bringing in the new vocalist and, subsequently new bass player Peter Scott, added the stability the band had lacked. The dust was brushed off album number two and it was given a name;
Where most bands will pigeon-hole themselves into a genre, The Final Sigh have always made classification near impossible with carefully crafted material that flows seamlessly between diving riffs and relaxed melody, whilst being able to crack eardrums in the same bar as subtle layered ambient breaks. Unconcerned by the traditional expectations of what a "metal" band should be, the band continue to push themselves whilst maintaining a ferocious and atmospheric live
