Drums [were] recorded in Seeheim/Jugenheim by good old Kristian Kohlmannslehner who also co-produced SUBSIGNAL's first album, 'Beautiful & Monstrous'. Vocals [were] recorded somewhere in the north of Germany. Mixing and mastering by Kristian Kohlmannslehner at Kohlekeller Studios."

SUBSIGNAL released its debut album, entitled "Beautiful & Monstrous", on September 25, 2009 via GoldenCore Records/ZYX Music. The CD was helmed by co-producer Kristian Kohlmannslehner, who worked on SIEGES EVEN's 2007 release, "Paramount".

SUBSIGNAL describes its music as "progressive, melancholic, cutting edge, emotional, blended with a good portion of melodic heaviness."
