Dark Sarah Interview

Finnish cinematic metal band Dark Sarah was formed in 2012 by Heidi Parviainen, a classically educated professional singer-songwriter. Their music combines elements of metal music, film music, music theater and opera. Their albums are conceptual albums and tell a continuing story.


I recently has the chance to speak to Heidi to talk about the bands upcoming album 'Grim', the story-line of Dark Sarah and a guide on how to become a darkling...

"Music was my fate and now I´m doing anything I can to make this work! Better late than never, right!"


Firstly, I have to ask this at the moment, how have you guys been coping in the lock-down, what kind of things have you been up to since the lock-down came into effect.

We have been social distancing for many months and working from home. I´ve been teaching singing online and doing a lot of gardening. Also the preparations of the album release like music video shooting needed to take place during the spring and crowdfunding. I´ve kept myself busy!
