Paara was started as a two man project back in 2011 with the idea to compose music just for themselves. Zvartus and Helmouth decided to release a digital single in 2012 which had so good feedback that it started something inevitable – Paara would have a full lineup in 2014. The debut album 'Yön olevainen puoli' saw daylight in May 2015. The band had already raised interest in music scene and had several special guests on their album from bands like Swallow The Sun, Moonsorrow, Katatonia, etc. Natalie Koskinen (Hahtezan) from Shape Of Despair also appeared on the album – and in 2016 was asked to join the band. Since the debut album came out Paara has played shows around Europe and Scandinavia – including some festivals. Paara's second album 'Riitti' will be out in early 2018.

Paara was early on heavily influenced by 1990's Norwegian black metal, but as things have evolved during the years they've picked a lot of aspects/influences from different genres. It's a complex mixture of melancholic melodies and atmospheric raw black metal – moments of serenity turning like a tide into raging winter storm. Themes have been revolving around Finnish stories of poltergeists, old rituals/incantations and myths/folktales. Paara is sung in Finnish to capture the essence of these stories and the atmosphere to depict them.

Lineup:
Zvartus – guitars & vocals
Helmouth – vocals
Hahtezan – vocals
Lempo – guitars
Trangoth – bass
Waara – drums & percussions
