Why do minors sound sadder, when you play with them and use them in riffs with overdrive?

Updates:
I was playing in a minor key, with the harmonic minor scale and noticed that its sounds much darker and sadder, and emotional the riffs
the overdrive adds a kind of drainy power to the riffs and makes it so so sad

  • Not sure, but that's a quality of all minor keys. Pentatonics tend to sound Asian/ not Euro-centric as well.
