Staff review by
Darkseed is a gothic metal act from Germany harmonizing beautifully elements coming from the 80s from the dark scene, generally speaking, with a heavy metal feeling.

After the heavier and more aggressive "Midnight Solemny Dance" and "Spellcraft" and two years after the last one was released, Darkseed returned with "Give Me Light", a more melodic and easier to approach album. Heavy metal feeling, through a more fragile prism though, enriched with elements from the dark wave/synth pop scene of the 80s, elements more obvious in the use of the keyboards and the utterly clean vocals, is what Darkseed offer with "Give Me Light" and they do it in an inspired way. And in the corner lie slight or more intense electro references in their overall sound here and there, making their compositions more affected.
