If there's any consolation, they split up to form another group, which I think is a good thing.

Terrible news...this band was great. I wasn't keen on the new album though, but this doesn't help.

If Arno and Markus are going off together, it will be tough to get another rhythm section half as strong.  The two brothers made the band.  Arno and Markus would have to branch out, add some keys and try something at least somewhat different to what they have been doing.  That is if they even want to stay in the prog realm of music.  Markus is very talented and I look forward to seeing what he comes up with but a sad day indeed.

Too bad.... Sieges Even was one of the few prog metal bands that I regularly play.... It will take a while (if it ever happens at all) before bands like Sunpath build up a similar attraction.
Even prog is rooted in the blues, at some point...

They were arguably my favorite prog metal band and will be very missed. The last 2 albums were classics.

Probably they belong to the classic  prog metal bands, they will be missed.

Update
 
Arno and Markus have confirmed that their new band line up is complete with the addition of Roel van Helden (Sun Caged)
 
Apparently material for the first album is already written so we can look forward to it being released in the near future. (hopefully)

It's a real shame. I was a fan from the start when they first released Lifecycle, and their releases seemed to get progressively better, although substantially different from album to album.
 
I can't say I was very impressed by their last two studio albums though, much too easy for my ears. The recent live album just highlighted this, when it enabled a direct comparrison between the new and older material.
 
Perhaps it's good if they take another lengthy break and then bring back Zenk and Keller, that would be great!

The worst part about all this: I missed to see them live with the last line-up Ouch
but there is always a chance for them to get together again ...
