Darkseed is a personal favorite in the gothic metal genre and I was surprised to see that Stephan Hertrich is no longer part of the band, one thing I loved about this Deutsch act was his voice, both clean, melodic hoarse and grunting. Good news though concerning their 2010 release, Poison Awaits. The new vocalist isn't unknown to the band, he'd been around during the first era of Darkseed, having participated in another project of Stephan as well, Betray My Secrets, henceforth he's part of the family. Harald Winkler is a bit generic but very good vocalist, melodic with a deeper accent at times, a few times lending a few grunts/whispers as well. I still prefer Stephan but having loved this band and since Harald knows really well how to stand behind the microphone I don't think the fans will be disapointed, maybe a little in the beginning, only then.

We Have To Notice That It's Harry's First Album After 10 Years (He Returns To Darkseed)
I'm Sure They Will Be Better In Future.

Well, at first I enjoyed the lyrics and it made me interested in the album the first time around. However, it just doesn't have much special in it musically, and Harald's vocals become tiring unfortunately. If he only used his soft, clean vocals it would be a better album (like at about 2:45 in "Striving For Life"), but his gruff, normal voice just is exhausting to listen to for an hour. Ahh well.
