Finnish cinematic metal act Dark Sarah unveils the first single off of their fourth studio album “Grim”. It’s titled “Melancholia” and comes along with a lyric video which you can watch below.
With their fourth studio album “Grim”, the band starts another chapter with a brand new horror/fantasy concept. 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 and rabbit-headed people. Besides Luna, the album will bring to life a new character Mörk portrayed by Jasse Jatala, as well as marks the great return of JP Leppäluoto, this time in the role of Wolf.
Heidi Parviainen comments: “Melancholia” is a dark (and maybe the saddest) song on Grim, yet it is also very powerful. In my opinion, it also contains the most beautiful guitar solo of the album. “Melancholia” is the name of a blue orb which provides magical powers to the protagonist Luna. In the song, Luna sees into her past through the orb and learns what has happened to her. She lives through her longings and loneliness once again.”
Heidi’s vigorous, yet melancholic soprano-like voice suffuses the rough soundscapes and merges with an irresistable narrative. With the help of a blue orb, the protagonist of the song, Luna, gains the magical power to see her past, helping her to reflect all occurrences and unveil the truth of why her heart had been frozen.
