YAAAAARRR ? EQUILIBRIUM is here! Beer pints, horses, mountains, swords, born-to-be-epic style tunes!
Equilibrium were founded as a sextet in 2001 and was actually only meant to last for one single show. But the metal audience's inspiring feedback prevented the Southern Germans to disappear in the annals of history, and thus Equilibrium wrote their first chapters for the textbooks of metal history with their first demo in 2003 and the debut album ?Turis Fratyr? in 2005. In 2008, their first album on Nuclear Blast Records, ?Sagas?, and a great 30thrank in the German album charts followed, which was even exceeded by ?Rekreatur? (rank 20) in 2010 and ?Erdentempel? (rank 16) in 2014.
The latest album ?Armageddon? was released in 2016. The album is darker, more serious and it mirrors all the currently moving world affairs but still maintains all the playful, catchy elements than the previous releases.
Equilibrium will be headlining Heavy Metal Heart 13 on Saturday October 12! Make sure you'll be there and hail in the name of EPICNESS!
