* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: As seen above, every main release in the band's discography starts with one of the four letters in the band's name. They always cycle through the four letters in order, then restart the cycle after they get to the end.

* AltumVidetur: Heavily used in ''Hangman's Hymn'', which makes sense as the album is structured as a funeral mass of sorts. Also shows up elsewhere, such as the song titles "Musica in tempora belli" ("Music in a time of war", although apparently it is slightly grammatically incorrect) and, apparently, "Kaedit nos pestis" (which appears to be roughly translated as "Strikes Us with Pestilence", though it apparently is correctly spelled as "Caedit").

'''Sigh''' is an [[AvantGardeMetal Avant-Garde]] BlackMetal band from Japan, maybe the first BlackMetal band ever from that country, which formed in Tokyo in 1990 and has the distinction of being one of the outright ''weirdest'' bands from an already weird genre. They were somewhat well-known among the black metal scene in the early 1990s for being signed to Deathlike Silence Productions, the record label of {{Mayhem}} guitarist Euronymous. Beginning as a fairly straightforward BlackMetal band, they increasingly began to [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly experiment with their sound a bit]], invoking MindScrew in the liner notes to ''Hail Horror Hail''. This culminated in 2001's ''Imaginary Sonicscape'', which goes to levels of GenreRoulette that quite possibly have to be heard to be believed. After committing GenreAdultery with the PowerMetal and [[NewWaveOfBritishHeavyMetal NWOBHM]]-influenced ''Gallows Gallery'' (their biggest departure from BlackMetal and their only release not to feature any HarshVocals), they settled on a hybrid of BlackMetal, ThrashMetal, and SymphonicMetal for ''Hangman's Hymn'' and ''Scenes from Hell''. ''In Somniphobia'' and ''Graveward'' go back to the GenreRoulette of previous works. As of 2014, they describe their style as "Cinematic Horror Metal".

* TheWalrusWasPaul: One of the most notable examples in BlackMetal. They are very clear about the fact that their music is intended to be a MindScrew.
