Subsignal - La Muerta (2018)
The fifth album from this German band.
Subsignal is a quintet on this album with a lineup of keyboards, drums, bass, guitars and vocals.
Marjana Semkina from Iamthemorning does vocals on the final track.
Subsignal is a sort of a German subergroup with members from Sieges Even and Axxis. I believe this band is a side-project of those two bands.
I have reviewed their first three albums in # 1 of this blog. You can find these reviews there.
From what I remember, the band was sailing pretty close to prog metal on their first albums. They were still a neo-prog band. But with some prog metal influences.
That has changed on at least this album. The band has moved more towards classic neo-prog and melodic rock.
There is a lot of catchy tunes here and sugary coated melodies. The vocals is very sugary sweet. That said, there is still enough substance and meat here to satisfy the prog rock fans too.
The end result is an hour long good album which will interest fans of melodic neo-prog. I have my reservations as this album is not giving us a great song. Nevertheless, check it out.
