Just acquired their ouevre (all 4 albums).

Took me a while to appreciate as they are, to the untrained observer, a rather commercial sounding affair. But their music is like a mix of clannad and Rush.

Clannad? Really?

Subsignal emerged from the ashes of Sieges Even; vocalist Arno Menses and guitarist Markus Steffen are the creators of Subsignal. They basically continued with sound of Sieges Even's last two albums - The Art of Navigating by the stars and Paramount. Their sound is quite unique I dare say, although the influences are visible (if I may say so): there's Rush plus some hints of metal and neo-prog. But all together quite nicely done.

It's the harmonies.

They aren't terribly heavy and are quite ballad oriented.

Each to their own. I read their history on Spotify (boo hiss), but not really listened much to Sieges Even.

^ ballad oriented I wouldn't say, they know how to blend soft passages with heavier ones.
They're not that heavy, I agree, they're under neo-prog on PA, but I say they're more progreesive metal than neo-prog.

Beautiful & Monstrous is one of the most solid albums of the last 10 years in my opinion. I discovered it nearly a year ago, and it's already been listened start to finish at least a hundred times. My favorite track by them is Paradigm. Beautiful harmonies.
