EQUILIBRIUM Second track-by-track trailer released

German epic metal pioneers, Equilibrium, will set aflame a brand new bonfire this summer with their fifth studio album. Guitarist, composer and lyricist René Berthiaume spent almost two years working on this new opus called ‘Armageddon’.

The result is a rather dark endeavour, whilst retaining the bombast and folk elements of their previous records.

Today, the band has released their second track-by-track trailer for that upcoming album.

Let Rene give you further information on the idea behind these songs:
06. Zum Horizont
07. Rise Again
08. Prey
09. Helden
10. Koyaaniskatsi
11. Eternal Destination
