Finnish cinematic metal icons DARK SARAH have officially signed a worldwide contract with Napalm Records! Over the course of eight years and three epically conceptualized albums, the band has proven their standing in the scene. As a classically-educated opera singer and experimental performer, Heidi Parviainen (formerly of AMBERIAN DAWN), created her alter ego with DARK SARAH and fascinates listeners with their talent for unique soundscapes in symbiosis with truly magical worlds.

Known for their incredible storytelling that coalesces perfectly into an unbreakable bond with their music, DARK SARAH are ready to start a new, mesmerizing journey with Napalm Records and their brand new upcoming epos, Grim, hitting stores on July 17, 2020!

Heidi Parviainen on the signing:
“We are very happy and excited to start a new era in our band´s history and to start collaborating with Napalm Records, one of the biggest metal labels in the world! After working as an independent band for many years, we have got a good view on that path - both in good and bad. This is a new opportunity for us, which we´ll welcome with open arms!”
DARK SARAH to release new horror-fantasy album, Grim!
Out on July 17, 2020 | Pre-Order HERE!
Cinematic metal icons DARK SARAH start an astonishing new fairytale-like storyline with their fourth studio album, Grim. 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, rabbit-headed people and Mörk, that’ll wrap you up in a surreal dreamscape.

The overwhelming intensity of DARK SARAH’s masterfully told cinematic metal saga sends shivers down your spine and takes possession of heart and soul, while leaving you with pure emotions. Grim flourishes with its full magnitude, unfolding its potential with every very second.

Singer Heidi Parviainen on Grim:
“Our new album called Grim is a concept album like its predecessors, but Grim will start a new story line with a modern horror fantasy theme. Musically, Grim introduces a more modern sound and a taste of what's to come in the future - with a “DARK SARAH twist", of course. We´re very happy about this album and it has been really fun to make. Also creating the new visual brand and the Grim world has been an adventure already!”

"A cocktail of modern prog metal, 'Macro' is the album where Jinjer show us what the future of heaviness sounds like.” - Loudwire
In the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic and with music fans confined to their homes, Ukrainian modern metal frontrunners JINJER bring live madness to your screens with the release of the official live video for crushing song "Pit Of Consciousness" from their globally acclaimed album Macro.

The video was filmed during the band's captivating performance in Kiev in 2019 by Oleg Rooz (Suicidal Tendencies, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Enter Shikari).

Commented bass player Eugene Abdukhanov: "Back when we recorded this show we were on the tail end of a 6 month tour and somewhere in between all that madness we managed to write and record Macro... it was an extremely stressful time. But it was one of the most positive times of our lives. Things right now look pretty grim and no one knows what will happen next. We want to release this video with the hopes of letting people know that no matter how crazy, confusing and scary things get - BETTER TIMES are on the way. Let’s use the time at home in isolation to take a good look inside and learn about our true selves…"

In under 10 years, the four-piece progressive groove metal wrecking machine known as JINJER have carved their very own place in the heavy metal landscape and are poised to go even further in 2019 and beyond. Hailing from Donetsk, this Ukrainian musical oddity formed in 2009, but consider the official start of the band with the addition of the incredible vocalist and femme fatale, Tatiana Shmayluk, in 2010. Since then, JINJER have been nominated and won the Best Ukrainian Metal Act award for Best Ukrainian Metal Band multiple times.

JINJER have built upon the successes of their previously released Micro EP with their latest full-length, Macro – boasting impressive worldwide chart debuts, remarkable critical acclaim, and millions of track streams and YouTube views – all the while selling out the vast majority of their international live performances in support. With Macro, JINJER have truly arrived in metal stardom territory and are on the verge of conquering it.

Debut Album SkamHan Out April 24 | Pre-Order HERE!

The best-kept secret of the Danish underground -
A hallucinating Progressive Black Metal offering


Danish progressive black metal enigma (0) has just released their newest single “Skarntyder”, fresh off their upcoming album, SkamHan, to be released on April 24 via Napalm Records. FJ’s dark growls paired with a mysterious and exhilarating atmosphere round off the song in perfect harmony and pull the listener even farther into the somber void.

With heavy riffs and ascending drums, followed by an unmistakably grim guitar solo, the song will have the listener on the edge of the boundaries of their imagination from the very first second. Watch the energetically bursting lyric video for “Skarntyder” below!

The band states:

The second single from SkamHan is track nr.3, “Skarntyder”. It's about people who as children are branded as difficult and weak, and thus scorned by society. “Skarntyder” is a made up word, derived from the danish word Skarntyde which means hemlock. When suffixed with an 'r' it becomes a joined word consisting of 'Skarn' and 'Tyder'. 'Skarn' translates to filth, which in Danish can be used about a person (child) who misbehaves. 'Tyder' is used about someone who interprets and reads into symbols and patterns.

So a 'Skarntyder' is someone who points out and brands a person that misbehaves or doesn’t fit in.

Watch “Skarntyder” HERE:

In rousing dark euphoria, (0) lifts the veil for their debut album SkamHan, a lucid dream wrapped in growling dark melancholia. Seven explosive and oppressive tracks presented in a frenzied mania blossom into a hallucinating mixture of black, drone and post metal spiced with intense sludge and progressive influences. The opening track, “Tyndere End Hud”, infatuates with intoxicating riffs and forceful growls, drawing its listener into the dark vortex. Pain and gloomy nothingness dominate the luminous expanse of SkamHan and symbolize the extreme soundscapes in an opus of darkness. The eponymous track crucially grows to a cathartic vibrating atmosphere and ruptures in energetic parts due to the agonized, bloodcurdling growls. The atmospheric expansiveness of the final track, “Alle Renses”, reminds that the routes of (0) remain labyrinthine. The elusive quintet bites the ear of the listener and drips with blackened obscurity.
