Finnish cinematic metal outfit Dark Sarah has signed a worldwide contract with Napalm Records. Over the course of eight years and three epically conceptualized albums, the band has proven their standing in the scene. As a classically-educated opera singer and experimental performer, Heidi Parviainen (former Amberian Dawn lead vocalist), created her alter ego with DARK SARAH and fascinates listeners with their talent for unique soundscapes in symbiosis with truly magical worlds.
Known for their extraordinary storytelling that coalesces perfectly into an unbreakable bond with their music, Dark Sarah are ready to start a new journey with Napalm Records and their brand new upcoming LP, Grim, which will be released on July 17, 2020.
Heidi Parviainen on the signing:
“We are very happy and excited to start a new era in our band´s history and to start collaborating with Napalm Records, one of the biggest metal labels in the world! After working as an independent band for many years, we have got a good view on that path – both in good and bad. This is a new opportunity for us, which we´ll welcome with open arms!”
The Finnish band starts an amazing new fairy tale-like storyline with their fourth studio album, “Grim”. The beguiling new dimension, coalescing between crystal-clear vocals and propulsive hardness, draws you into the tempestuous maelstrom of their horror fantasy theme. Introducing the new protagonist, Luna, the band invites you to their mythical world of orbs, ravens, rabbit-headed people and Mörk, that will wrap you up in a surreal dreamscape.
Singer Heidi Parviainen on the upcoming album:
“Our new album called Grim is a concept album like its predecessors, but Grim will start a new story line with a modern horror fantasy theme. Musically, Grim introduces a more modern sound and a taste of what’s to come in the future – with a “DARK SARAH twist”, of course. We´re very happy about this album and it has been really fun to make. Also creating the new visual brand and the Grim world has been an adventure already!”
