Finnish vocalist Heidi Parviainen (ex- Amberian Dawn) recently released an album with her new band Dark Sarah. The album is called BEHIND THE BLACK VEIL and it ought to appeal to fans of symphonic goth/metal. The album came to life thanks to crowd funding on Indie a Go Go and was recorded in three separate parts which later became the album. We talked about the album, the guest appearances, and the on going process with releasing the album. The first video from the disc came two years ago so I guess Heidi was glad to finally unleash her work to the fans and the world. Read more about her journey below.

2014 was a very busy year for Sonata Arctica. First of all, they released their eighth album “Pariah’s Child” which marked the return to their old melodic speed metal roots. Then, they re-recorded the whole “Ecliptica” album to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this first opus. The Finnish wolves are currently on tour throughout Europe to promote this new re-recorded version. Before the beginning of their concert in London (the only UK show), I had the opportunity to meet their charismatic vocalist and founding member Tony Kakko. I asked him some questions about “Ecliptica – Revisited; 15th Anniversary Edition” and their early years as well.

From Finland comes Silent Voices, a band that plays excellent melodic metal and who released their fourth album REVEAL THE CHANGE at the end of last year. I really loved the album and when I realized that Henrik Klingenberg (Sonata Arctica) also was a part of this band I decided to check them out. I got in touch with Pasi Kauppinen (also a member of Sonata Arctica) and we had a long talk about the new album, the influences and the many guest appearances the band has featured. A few of the guests are Mats Levén, Mike Vescera and Mike DiMeo. Of course came Sonata Arctica up in the conversation…enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »
