Darkseed are a band from Germany that has a history that dates back to the 90's and they play a style known as gotic metal and this is a review of their 2010 album "Poison Awaits" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums are mostly slow to midpaced with no fast playing or blast beats, while the keyboards have a gothic sound to them with an industrial edge, as for the bass playing it has a very powerful with influences from gothic and death rock.
Rhythm guitars are mostly slow to midpaced metal/gothic rock riffs that contain a good amount of melody, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos that have a tragic sound to them.
Vocals are mostly clean singing gothic vocals with some more aggressive and whispered vocals being used on ocassion, while the lyrics touch on dark and depressing themes, as for the production it is very professional sounding and you can hear all of the instruments that are present on this album.
In my opinion this is another good album from Darkseed and fans of this band as well as other gothic metal bands should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Incinerate" "Seeds Of Sorrow" "A Dual Pact" and "No Promise In The Heavens". RECOMMENDED BUY.
