Editorial Reviews

Finally on Vinyl Progressive Rock has got a new definition: SUBSIGNAL! After the huge success of their debut album BEAUTIFUL & MONSTROUS in 2009, they come back with TOUCHSTONES , yet more elaborate and more innovative than before a stately album which reinforces their well-deserved large reputation.
Raving press reviews draw comparison with the legendary YES as a tribute to their talent.

Just finished listening to this CD for the first time and I can honestly say that I was really amazed at the similarity to the last two Sieges Even CDs (which I love and consider masterpieces). This band is incredible and I wish that more people knew about this band. The lyrics are some of the best I have heard by anyone in recent years and the vocals and harmonies are superb! The musicianship is high-caliber and expertly performed. An all-around fantastic piece of music that I am very proud to have in my collection. My only complaint (and it is minor) is that at least on first listen, that the production was not quite as crystal clear as the Sieges Even work. But if I had heard this band on the radio and had not heard of Subsignal I would have sworn that it was Sieges Even! So fans of the band can pretty much expect the same type of creativity and beauty from this band. I just hope that they get some success as Subsignal! These guys really deserve it! I look forward to becoming more familiar with each song. It is a very learning journey! Just the kind I like! Master songwriters!

For their sophomore effort the band has created another lush prog album full of the type of music you would expect from Arno Menses. While I'm not going to go song by song (will let someone else do that) I will say that if you're a fan of their first album, plus a fan of Sieges Even, then this is a must have album. Overall, you will not be disappointed and you should expect some great listening.

This cd is great, very, very good. I like more the hard part of progressive music(and with the term progressive I do not mean the last two works of SYMPHONY X),but this cd is not very hard but it is incredible . Mixed progressive metal parts with other parts very melodic and beautiful, with an amazing chorus work. Nothing is missing, it is almost perfect. The production is very good and very clean, letting us hear all the great music that they offer us in this work.I think the best song is FINISTERRE,but all the songs could be.This cd is great,great and great. RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!

From the ashes of Sieges Even came Subsignal,at first i did not know what to expect from this band.Arno sings stupendously & Steffen at guitar create wonderful melodies and rhythms.Their first album was great but was really slow at points and was like anything Sieges Even did.I did not hear they had released another album until i checked up on Amazon and saw it was to be released and it was well worth the wait.The album much heavier and full of melodies and choruses that just stick in your head.Each song is so unique and crafted perfectly that it fit into this album and it was astounding.The highlight track for me from this album is "Echoes In Eternity".This album is amazing.

SUBSIGNAL "Touchstones"

Amidst the never-ending rain of music bombs that explode here and there at times, I feel lucky that this time I was, again, at the right spot. And what do I mean? I am exactly where I am not sorry, I am not sad or even enraged when musicians and artists have the knowledge, the experience and the guts to stay at the top, honoring their musical past without sacrificing it at the altar of popularity, fame and comfort. The Dutch-German SUBSIGNAL rightfully belong to those acclaimed musicians.

They respect, above all, their multi-year career and, as a consequence, their audience, their fans. All those, all us, that faithfully follow them from the SIEGES EVEN times. MENSES & STEFFEN, the distinctive twin, in sound and in presence, including members of the equally amazing bands DREAMSCAPE & SUN CAGED, come to spread the last of this year's music carpet.

TOUCHSTONES is the second creation of SUBSIGNAL (2 years after the incredible "Beautiful & Monstrous") and they must be truly proud, as even the slightest doubts, that possibly existed during their start, now simply totally vanished. Yet another amazing album came to stay; it is of the kind that you want to listen to over and over again. Without exaggerations, without decorations that distract your attention. A story of a lifetime, of experiences, of the years that have passed, along with any mistakes and the price being paid for them. Of the years that will come, bringing hopes and dreams different from those that passed. Revealing hidden thoughts and feelings, letting them become lyrics, poems, maybe even messages, along with the music.

A masterpiece of this level is simple and plain, from its visual presentation , there is no need for "overloading", to its lyrics and music.
