Lest hier das offizielle Statement von Stefan:

Hi all!

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!
