Darkseed

Darkseed was part of the German gothic metal scene for quite some time, as they formed in the early nineties and last recorded in 2010. Their style fit in well with goth metal scene dominated mostly by Finns -- mid-to-slow rhythms, driving guitars, lower-pitched, semi-spoken vocals (with some female backing vocals), and more of a rock feel than traditional metal. Mainman Stefan Hertrich put together several side projects over the years, notably the excellent Betray My Secrets. A February 2015 posting on their site indicated that they were taking an extended break, which may well mean they are done.
