Dark Sarah – The Puzzle

darksarah.jpg

Symphonic metal has been a pleasure of mine for a little over a decade now, and as I age I find that I enjoy it more than other forms of metal. This is largely due to the grandiose style symphonic bands deliver and one band that truly hits the mark is Finland’s Dark Sarah. Like any serious symphonic metal album, The Puzzle begins with an introduction track. In this case it’s called ‘Breathe’ and the track opens with strings, piano and synths before slowly gliding into the epic majesty that is this genre. The orchestra does well to pique my interest and the guitars serve only to enhance this feeling. The song truly comes into its own, however, when it all slows down and starts anew with vocalist Heidi Parviainen entering the fray for a few moments.
