Equilibrium Recruits New Guitarist

German epic metal band Equilibrium today introduces a new lead guitarist: Dom R. Crey is the successor to the recently departing guitar player Andreas Völkl. The band states:

"Hello dear Equi-community, after the departure of Sandra and Andi we have started to look for musicians, to start the next chapter with us and also the upcoming concerts.

"At this point we want to thank everyone, for sending us applications – some of them were really good. As of today we can announce that Dom (Dom R. Crey), also known through Nothgard and Wolfchant will be joining in on guitars from now on. We are absolutely proud that we have won our, partly long-term, friend as the latest member of the family! We are totally looking forward to the future with him as part of Equilibrium!"

Dom adds: "I am looking forward to the upcoming concerts and the next time, but also to listen to the new masterpiece of the Equi-guys. René has overdone himself with it, in my own opinion, which makes me even more euphoric towards the next gigs. This new and for some rather unusual constellation has no effect on my other bands. I am looking forward to hav all the fun in the world with Equilibrium, that have been friends of mine for a while now and also to share this fun with you, dear Equi-Fans."

German epic metal outfit Equilibrium has just released a second trailer for the band's upcoming new album “Erdentempel." Check it out below. The previously posted first teaser is also still available at this location.

In other news, last month the band parted ways with brother/sister team Andreas Völkl (guitar) and Sandra van Eldik (bass).

Guitarist, composer and lyricist René Berthiaume spent almost four years working on the new creation “Erdentempel." He comments:

“Things finally get going again! The new album is done and we can hardly wait to share it with the world. The 12 titles are already a hint that it’s an extremely varied album. I have just listened to the album again, and I’ve never been so happy and excited after the completion of an album. The album really includes every facet of Equilibrium. We are also very proud of the cover artwork of 'Erdentempel.'

"Skadi has been listening to the record most intensely, started to draw and this is the outcome. She really managed to put the content of the album into a picture! By the way, this time there is one song with English lyrics on the album. It is for all our fans who don’t speak German. So they can finally understand the lyircs while listening to it. The other songs are still in German, of course!" More...
