Colours In The Dark is the fourth studio album by Finnish symphonic metal artist Tarja Turunen, released in August 2013 by earMUSIC.

TARJA is inarguably one of Finland’s brightest stars in the rock scene. From the moment she could talk TARJA knew music was in her blood and singing was her tool, as most metalheads know she first gained fame via being lead vocalist of Finnish symphonic metal NIGHTWISH and became one of the pioneers of this new genre of opera metal. Since being dismissed from the band in 2005 her solo career has blossomed and developed beautifully; with three rock studio albums, two classical albums, three live albums, a number of projects and many live shows on a worldwide scale it is more than safe to she is doing impeccably well.

Tarja’s powerful voice has never faltered throughout her career, but the music that has accompanied hasn’t always been entirely flattering. With Colours In The Dark she has finally cracked it with a more confident and bolder sound.

Whereas its predecessor What Lies Beneath was separated into three distinct styles with each mixed by a different producer, Colours In The Dark is more fluid, more coherent and even more dramatic than anything she’s previously produced on her own. 

On progressive opener “Victim Of Ritual”, marching rhythms part to reveal the symphonic metal sound the soprano has been associated with for the best part of three decades. The pop element she’s flirted with has been polished up by producer Tim Palmer, whose credentials include Bowie’s Tin Machine, Robert Plant, and Turunen’s previous album. 

This one is packed with rock anthems (the galloping “Never Enough” and “Neverlight”) and twists through grandiose orchestral arrangements, driving metal riffs and piano-led ditties soaked in rich atmospheres.

Colours In The Dark is without doubt the point where it all fell into place, and a promising step in a far more powerful and interesting direction.

Check out the singles: “Victims Of The Ritual” and "500 Letters".

This double album 2LP record set is on clear multi coloured splattered vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with inner sleeves, pressed in Germany.
