POISONED LOVE is a dark symphonic metal song with some catchy 80’s vibes. Get ready for a kind of gothic melodic and yet heavy track, showcasing a different facet of Herbie Langhans’ vocals, sounding as stunning as ever. He has managed to embrace the energy of rock and metal without diluting his signature style. In this song Benegas has given a brilliant glimpse of things to come with his upcoming production. With simple riffs, heaviness and enchanting feeling, its lyrics also represents well the gloomy and profound side of this POISONED LOVE story. On this track, Benegas follows a modern concept in compositions, but without losing the essence of traditional metal.
