Scintillating, enigmatic Dark Sarah, a Finnish cinematic metal band led by classically trained singer/songwriter Heidi Parviainen, is back with the Final leg of her chronicles, with “The Golden Moth”. The album is going to be released on the 21st of September 2018 in Europe and North America under the label of Inner Wound recording, and is the brainchild of Heidi Parviainen, former Amberian Dawn’s vocalist. Dark Sarah ́s music combines metal, film music and theatrical elements. I reviewed “The Puzzle” back in 2016, I have been waiting for the final leg of the journey, without a doubt with tremendous curiosity.

The concept albums tells the story of a young woman called Sarah and her evil half – Dark Sarah and a mystical journey through three worlds. Dark Sarah’s first album “Behind the Black Veil” introduces the listener to the main character Sarah, a young woman left at the altar by her husband. When she is on the verge of breaking down, something wakes up inside and changes her into her meaner half, Dark Sarah. While her Second album “The Puzzle” we embark on a journey where she’s sent to Underworld, an island where the banished souls live, and solve a puzzle to come out it.

With “The Golden Moth”, she takes us on a journey from the netherworld to the Upper world, a deserted waste land where the gods rule. The Dragon sneaks into the new world following Dark Sarah. And as they team up together they try to find their way to the gods that live on an island floating upon the desert. All the three albums have been crowdfunded by the fans on Indiegogo.

Svarteskerm – “Dawn of the Dread”

Swedish anarcho-punks Svarteskerm have released a bit of a discography that is worth checking out in all its raw, chaotic glory.

Svarteskerm are Swedish and nearly everything I can find on them is in Swedish as well, which complicates doing things like reviews, but given that they’re primarily  an anti-capitalist punk rock outfit, that probably doesn’t matter much as you get the idea.  I liberally tried google translate in some cases and it failed me (see band member list below, lol). They’ve apparently been around nearly 10 years and the guys at ZAP Records thought it was time the world should hear the brilliance of the band.  The song on the anthology start out from a 2014 recording and go back to some recorded in 2008 with a couple remixes added at the end for good effect.

The video for the song “Maktlös” should be all you need to know.  Grainy footage, multiple vocalist jumping around and trading lyrics back and forth over a fast punk rock beat that sounds equal parts Crashdog and old Blindside, with maybe some NYHC thrown in for good effect.  The song is fast with a great driving rhythm that would incite near riots in the pits and the production is rough and raw, perfectly matched to the song.
