Sieges Even was a progressive metal band from Munich, Germany. The band was originally formed under the name Sodom (not to be confused with fellow German band Sodom) in the early 1980s, released their first demo in 1983, and adopted the name Sieges Even in 1985.


In the summer of 2008, the band split up due to internal differences. Markus Steffen and Arno Menses formed the band Subsignal, while the Holzwarth brothers have been participating in various projects. Since 2011, they are both full members of Rhapsody of Fire.

Sieges Even played the progressive metal genre, but had used different musical styles over the years.
