Equilibrium Posts Second "Erdentempel" Trailer

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...

In few days, the guys will enter the Helion Studios Munich to kick off the recordings with guitar player and producer René Berthiaume. The band states:

“The songs are written, 13 tracks are planned for the album. We can hardly wait to finally release another full-length record after four years! In the past we’ve written a lot, so that the record will be very varying. With some songs we return to our roots, others will be a sonic surprise. Next week Robse will hit the studio to record vocals and to give the songs life. Furthermore there are some other things planned for Equi this year, you can really look forward to!”

Equilibrium Posts Second Part Of Interview

Today is the day: German epic metal heroes Equilibrium unleash their pagan fury once again – on their very first EP to date!

Produced by guitarist René Berthiaume in Helion Studios and mixed and mastered by the Resetti Brothers – namely Joerg Umbreit and Vincent Sorg – in their Principal Studios, "Waldschrein" encompasses the new title track and an acoustic version of the same song plus a re-recorded and extended version of "Der Sturm" from "Turis Fratyr" (originally sung by ex-vocalist Helge Stange, now by front man Robse Dahn). Moreover, it contains "Zwergenhammer," a previously unreleased older song, as well as a cover version of famous video game Skyrim's opening theme.

The band commented: "We were really looking forward to releasing this EP, because we all have to wait until next year for our next full-length album to be released. This makes it the perfect chance to release some songs and recordings that didn’t make it on any regular album because they are so exclusive. The best thing is that with the song 'Waldschrein' we can already give the fans a little foretaste of what to expect in 2014!"

Equilibrium also gave fans the chance to address questions directly to the band via Facebook and subsequently answered them in a video interview. Part 2 of the Facebook fan interview is now online and can be viewed below. Part 1 of the interview can also be found at this location. More...
