In 2001, a band was formed in Bavaria, Germany. First, only for one gig, but after the audience was left stunned and begging, the band decided to continue. They chose the name EQUILIBRIUM and released a Demo in 2003. This Demo not only sold like hell but also brought the band a deal with Black Attakk.
The collabaration resulted in the amazing debut album "Turis Fratyr", combining Folk Metal with a blend of Pagan and Black Metal. After the release of the album and the good response of fans and the media likewise, the band played several tours and festival gigs (Summer Breeze, Wacken), establishing a huge fanbase all around europe – even though all of the lyrics were in German!
Not satisfied with the work of its old record company, the band signed a contract with Nuclear Blast Records in order to reach the next level.
With their newest effort "Sagas" this shouldn..t be an unreachable aim. The music and production has evolved – only hits, no fillers at all. The style still varies more between happiness and sorrow, heavy and soft, melodic and grim. For this record, the band decided to only use German lyrics on the new Album, which gives EQUILIBRIUM uniqueness in the Folk/Pagan Metal scene!
"Sagas" will be released with a superb Bonus DVD with approx. 70 minutes of running time, featuring EQUILIBRIUM on and off stage. A worthy package for every fan!
