DARKSEED-Gründungsmitglied Stefan Hertrich hat die Band verlassen. Sein Nachfolger ist Christoph Puhr-Westerheide.
Lest hier das offizielle Statement von Stefan:
Many people have demanded a clear statement explaining why I left the band
Darkseed, the band I formed 11 years ago. The band originally comes from
Munich, but I moved 300 km away because I found a good job in the computer
gaming industry. I would still have been able to record more Darkseed CDs,
but the rest of the band wanted to play live, a thing I cannot do because it
simply requires too much time to rehearse the songs and play concerts. So I
proposed that they should look for a new vocalist after Astral Adventures
is released so that concerts can be played again and Darkseed will get more
publicity than they have in recent years.
I will concentrate on my solo project Shiva in Exile now
(www.shiva-in-exile.com), an experimental mixture between ethnic and gothic
music, maybe work on a new Betray my Secrets album with Christian of
Megaherz, and also work on computer game music. But the first thing I will
do (in fact I have already started to do) is to write a real metal album. It
will be the album I would have written for Darkseed after Astral
Adventures. So don´t imagine that I will start a life without music!
OK, that´s about all of it. No dramatic words, no room for rumours 🙂
Thank you to all Darkseed fans, the old ones from 1992 as well as the new
ones who bought Diving into Darkness and Astral Adventures, and good luck
for the new Darkseed line-up. Also many thanks to Alex Koenig alias Darksoul
for maintaining the Darkseed website for such a long time (and for free!).
Enjoy Darkseed live, after 4 years of silence!
