Re-Release "Forever Is Now" for free at Bandcamp!
6 years from its dissolution we have re-release our 2006 Album "Forever Is Now" as a free Download on Bandcamp. The Download includes the whole artwork with an 8-paged Booklet as PDF and the "From The Ashes" EP (2004) as Bonus Tracks.

"Forever is Now" was recorded in the Berlin "Daily Hero Recordings" (War From A Harlots Mouth, Placenta, Postmortem, Deadlock) and was mastered by Peter "Pluto" Neuber at Mega Wimp Sound (Born from Pain, Disinter, Septic Flesh, Avulsed).

Even after nearly 10 years "Forever Is Now" is still a neckbreaker. After the bankruptcy of our previous distributon, and the fact that the then-label is no longer active, the album is hardly to be found, which is why we has decided to provide it this way.

Get it from:

Spring 2009
All good things come to an end...
...Unfortunately, we're taking this opportunity to let you know that for a variety of reasons, we've decided to end our 10 year long journey as Subconscious. To make it clear: There is no bad blood between us at all and we are still good friends.
It's been a wild ride, with clearly more ups than downs and maybe it's better to stop at the point when it's at its best.

We would like to thank everyone who accompanied us on this journey, fellow musicians, friends, fans and bands with whom we were allowed to share the stages.
Thank you for the many years together! We are sure, at one or the other place we will continue to run into each other!

The summerbreak is over...
...and subconscious are back on the stage again...

The Pack is back!
We are very happy to announce a new SUBCONSCIOUS band member: from now on, Olaf will hit the strings on the guitar next to Klaus. Some of you might know Olaf from playing bass in his former band Redeema.
As a band, we already know Olaf for a couple of years now, as some of us rehearsed and shared stages with him for various Berlin Allstarz shows and Olaf was also responsible for our latest band promo shots.

Subconscious looking for new guitar player
We are eagerly looking for a new guitar player! Our new member should be an open-minded person with a broadened musical horizon and skilled on the guitar. You should also bring live show experience, suitable equipment, a good portion of fun and a certain dedication to the band and the music.
We are all laid-back people, so don´t be afraid If you are interested, please get in touch with us via email or myspace and drop us some lines about yourself. Thank you!

12.01.08 Subconscious and Christian has parted ways
As we announced it already in December 2007 at the Lindenpark show in Potsdam, our guitarist Christian decided to leave Subconscious by the end of 2007. We are now looking for a new guitar player, so please check the news above for details.

Here are some final words from christian:
After due consideration, I finally decided to leave Subconscious at the end of 2007. Growing interpersonal dissension and estrangement between me and parts of the band brought about this decision. My decision should not cast a cloud over the past more than 8 years. For me it was a great time and we achieved much more than I had expected when we formed Subconscious in February 1999: Numberless songs, 99 shows and 4 CD outputs, which describe Subconscious‘ developement from an unknown ‚rehearsal room combo‘ to an established metalcore band.
Much more important than these statistics is the fact, that I met the right guys to enhance myself musically and to create our own kind of music I can identify myself with till today. Playing liveshows I always considered as highlights of my musical career and I´m very thankful for the experience having felt the enormous power of music releasing this flood of energy between the band and the crowd. This feeling and the picures of moshing, slamming and handbanging crowds are impressions that will last.
Finally, I want to thank especially Ananda and Jana for their fantastic support during many years and Kurt (Memorial) for the great time we always had in Denmark. Let me also thank my band-buddies, all kind bands who we shared the stage with, all concert promoters who gave us the chance to play at their venues and all people who visited and hopefully enjoyed our shows.
Take care.

Hey folks, Subconscious are back from Rat-City and don´t want to miss expressing our biggest gratitude to:
- Jochen & Gerd for getting this awesome festival going
- the whole JNR Crew, including production, catering, sound and security for running a successful event
- those crazy freaks attending our show and starting the first mosh & circle pit of the festival even during those heavy showers occuring while we were playing! No matter that it were only 30-40 people - you are the greatest, thanks a fucking lot!!
- Narziß, who - indirectly - made it possible for us play that show, since they had to change their stage-time and for a great show at the "Sumpfblume"
- Forever It Shall Be, who - directly - recommended us to the organizer in order to fill Narziß´ slot at the main stage :-)
- And Still I Bleed, for rocking at the tent-stage prior to our show and sending all the people to the main stage after their show, as well as for lots of fun during the Cataract show!
- A Traitor Like Judas for watching our show, even though they had to prepare for their own show in the tent, taking place afterwards
- Hexe (...) for that awesome sticker on her car´s rear window :-)
Once again lots of Greetings to all the bands and musicians who were plaing and with whom we had the chance to chat backstage (Deadsoil, Dew Scented, ASIB, FISB, ATLJ, etc...)
Conclusion: HAMELN WAS A BLAST and it was a huge pleasure for us to play there and to mosh with the fearless in the rain. THANK YOU!!

09.06.06 Guitar-Player wanted !
No, we don´t wanna get rid of our present guitarist, we just want to expand  the band as soon as possible with a 2nd guitar-player! We are not looking  for beginners and we do not necessarily need a full-time pro - we want  someone who´s down with his instrument and who´s not statuesque when  playing on stage.
You should have your own equipment, experience on stage, the willingness to  rehearse at least once a week (rehearsal room in Berlin) and to aquire our  songs quickly and on your own to a large extent, as well as fun making  music and playing shows. A positive attitude towards Metalcore is needless to mention :-)
If you are such a person or know someone who might be interested, just drop
us some lines in a myspace message or write an email
Please spread the word, thank you!

Today we will relaunch our website with a new design, almost completely in English, new contents and a new structure. New pictures and downloads are coming soon. Have fun checking the new site out!!

Hell yeah! The final mastering of our recordings is in progress. We got Peter "Pluto" Neuber at "Mega Wimp Sound" for this job! You might know his work from pimping the recordings from bands like Born from Pain, Disinter, Septic Flesh, Avulsed, Deicide, etc. - so be warned: "Forever Is Now" will sound like war in hell, haha.
