SUBSIGNAL, the German band featuring former SIEGES EVEN members Arno Menses (vocals) and Markus Steffen (guitar), will enter the studio in February to begin recording its third album, "Paraìso", for a September release. The group states: "We will be recording nine tracks with an approximate playing time of 60 minutes." The follow-up to 2011's "Touchstones" will include the following songtitles, among others: "A Giant Leap Of Faith" and "The Stillness Beneath The Snow".
SUBSIGNAL released a concert DVD, "Out There Must Be Something - Live in Mannheim 2012", in November. The DVD features the full show the band played in April 2012 in Mannheim, Germany, in a very small venue, filmed with six cameras. Steffen states: "Actually, this is the place where the first SUBSIGNAL show back in 2009 took place."
He adds, "Don't expect explosions, fire and naked women on stage, but a DVD with 140 minutes of pure SUBSIGNAL music and a great audience."
SUBSIGNAL recently parted ways with drummer Roel van Helden and replaced him with Danilo Batdorf (DREAMSCAPE). According to the band, Danilo already successfully played the last leg of SUBSIGNAL's European tour in April/May 2012.
"Touchstones" was released in September 2011 via ZYX Music. The vinyl version came with two bonus live tracks, "Where Angels Fear To Tread" and "Paradigm".
SUBSIGNAL describes its music as "progressive, melancholic, cutting edge, emotional, blended with a good portion of melodic heaviness."
