Heidi Parviainen’s cinematic metal group Dark Sarah reveals the second single off of their upcoming concept album “Grim“, due out July 17. It’s titled “All Ears!” and comes with a music video, available 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.
Following “Melancholia“, “All Ears!” is the second single off of “Grim”. The marching rhythm of the horror-esque intro rises to an all-encompassing theme that coalesces with Heidi’s blandishing vocals and the frightening story of Grim. The official music video (directed by Markus Nieminen) and the energetic soundscapes draw its listener deeper into Dark Sarah’s magical horror fantasy world, while the story behind “All Ears!” is perfectly visualized: The protagonist Luna casts a compelling spell over the citizens of Grim. As mighty as no one could have imagined, she rises, forming an army marching against their conjoint enemy – Mörk.
Heidi Parviainen states: “”All Ears!” is a call to unite all the people who think there is a certain power behind tales, monsters and magic! Join the coven! The narrative of “All Ears!” follows the storyline of the Grim album. A powerful spell on the citizens of Grim empowers the protagonist Luna to fight against the evil monster Mörk who is terrorizing the city. The listener can also get a first glimpse of our new guest Jasse Jatala as Mörk. The whole Grim story will be released as a book at the same time as our album so that our fans can get even more immersed in the story.”
