It’s never easy to replace a member of a band, particularly when that band member is one of the band’s lead vocalists. Draconian’s fifth album Sovran introduces their new female vocalist Heike Langhans, who replaces Lisa Johansson who left the band in 2012. The album takes a more gothic and atmospheric approach then previous albums giving it a very dark and dreary sound. Heike is a fantastic replacement for Lisa, her gorgeous vocals are the highlight of the album. This was a late contender for album of the month but it simply blew away all other competition.
