CD review SUBSIGNAL ‘A Song for the Homeless – Live in Rüsselsheim 2019’

The German prog rockers from Subsignal are releasing their first live album ‘A Song for the Homeless – Live in Rüsselsheim 2019’ these days. The album is based on a concert the band played on March 28, 2019 in Rüsselsheim, Germany.

After six studio albums, Arno Menses, Markus Steffen, Ralf Schwager, Markus Maichel and Dirk Brand finally deliver the live concert atmosphere into the living rooms of their fans.

What stands out right from the beginning is the excellent sound of the live album for which Yogi Lang, who releases a live EP himself these days, was in charge.

With ‘Thunderstone’, taken from the Subsignal’s second album, the guys kick off an evening full of feeling and soulfulness. That fans are going along with the music is obvious at the latest at a moment of clapping hands and the applause at the end reflects a good mood too. Music and fans, that’s one unit that night.

The main focus of the concert was of course on the last studio album ‘La Muerte’, but the other records of Subsignal aren’t forgotten either. A collection of 12 songs reflects all the creative work of the quintet. Subsignal manage to bring the songs to life despite their complexity. Liveliness and atmosphere on stage are just as important to the band as their more complex song structures. Subsignal live is not only for the mind. It is also music for heart and soul, presented with sensitivity by using the whole spectrum, from soft to loud.

If you liked the six studio albums of Subsignal so far, you will also be impressed and thrilled by this live release.
