Former AMBERIAN DAWN Singer's DARK SARAH: 'Behind The Black Veil' Album Artwork Unveiled

The cover artwork for "Behind The Black Veil", the forthcoming debut album from DARK SARAH, the new project led by former AMBERIAN DAWN singer Heidi Parviainen, can be found below.

In an interview with Bloodart, Parviainen stated about DARK SARAH: "I had been planning my own project for years but never had really the time for it next to AMBERIAN DAWN. And in fall 2011, I started an active phase to make my project happen. After quitting AMBERIAN DAWN, I could concentrate on it only. At this point of my career, I felt I had to make one of my dreams come true in the form of DARK SARAH. But who knows what the future will bring?"

Regarding where the idea for the name of her new project came from, Heidi told "The name Dark Sarah came along with the first lyrics I wrote for DARK SARAH.

"The story is about a woman who has gone through some rough times, and was actually left at the altar by her husband. She almost breaks down but something wakes up inside of her and she changes to another person, her meaner half, Dark Sarah.

"I was so in the story of Dark Sarah that it became my project name and it could also be my alter ego too. [laughs] I also liked the fact that the name Dark Sarah sounds like a super villain or a cartoon figure (like Cat Woman, Jekyll & Hyde etc.), and they all have their metamorphosis too.

"But there is also a deeper meaning behind the name Sarah which is a really old name and means 'a princess,' and Dark Sarah is a 'dark princess.' The eye of Horus symbol in the logo and her eye (when she transforms into hear meaner self) means protection, she protects her good self by becoming bad."

DARK SARAH's "Memories Fall" video can be seen below. The track features a guest appearance by former XANDRIA frontwoman Manuela Kraller.

Parviainen left AMBERIAN DAWN in November 2012. Her final appearance with the band was at the Metal Female Voices Fest at the end of October 2012 in Belgium. She has since been replaced by Päivi "Capri" Virkkunen.

Parviainen sang on AMBERIAN DAWN's first four albums — "Circus Black" (2012), "End Of Eden" (2010), "The Clouds Of Northland Thunder" (2009) and "River Of Tuoni" (2008).
