I find that, while still enjoyable, tracks six to eleven just aren't as good as the first five tracks and track twelve. A hell lot of fun, in the most true sense of the word! While all of the band's albums vary from each other in sound, they all remain home to the previously listed adjectives. Clearly, guitarist and producer René Berthiaume had a specific sound in mind here that he was hoping to achieve, and from the evidence presented on this album, it seems as though said vision has been successfully realised. The overarching element this time is energetic, fun, and happy sounding music. In fact, any of the individual components would easily be enjoyable on their own. The following year they signed a contract with the and on 27 June 2008 they released their second album,. No, it's not the most complicated or challenging of epic metal albums, but damn if it isn't one of the funnest listens out there.
The following month the band announced that Robse, vocalist in the German band , had been chosen as their new vocalist. This is the first Equilibrium album I feel completely satisfied listening to on shuffle. And it's definitely still Equilibrium. The black metal back-bone hits just as hard as expected for a band in the genre, with the low growls and screams of vocalist Robert Dahn perfectly complimenting the heavy framework courtesy of guitarists Andreas Völkl and René Berthiaume. Utilising a full range of symphonic instruments and techniques, Equilibrium have truly removed the constraints that most bands place on themselves. The original track upped the folk influences back into absolute full swing. On 22 August 2016, the band's sixth album Armageddon was released via Nuclear Blast.
Melodic Metal, powerful yet playful, heavy but emotional, inspired but independent. With their trifecta of differing musical directions all pointing towards the one album, nothing is off limits. Must-hear tracks: Was Lange Währt, Uns'rer Flöten Klang, The Unknown Episode, Waldschrein. Archived from on 12 February 2010. Ostrander is known for his work outside of this series, particularly … Game Review. The symphonic and folk elements exist in order to effectively improve upon the incredibly solid black metal foundation laid down.
But in the end, the only way I can foresee disappointment with Erdentempel is if people are going in with expectations. I mean, that shit is impossible for a non-Germanic to spell. Their lyrical themes focus on Germanic tales and. This is not simply a black metal album sprinkled with frilly folk music and basic orchestrations, no; over the course of this album it becomes increasingly apparent that intelligent songwriting and structuring are the greatest assets that the band members possess. If you are expecting, or better yet yearning for an experience that a previous Equilibrium album offered, you will surely be disappointed.
Track list Total runtime 1 - Ankunft 0:51. Their 2010 output »Rekreatur« even topped this charting success with 20 position on the German album charts. The folk aspect is the highest its ever been in the band's career, the songs all short and simple in structure. . Tauntingly, this album does have a couple of their first English songs in it, but not enough for me to consider them given up, just enough that a lunatic or a egotist that Greek chap who loved himself to death, what was he called? However, the album contains a completely re-recorded version of the song. That is, without the need for the rest of the album's context; you can listen to and fully enjoy any given track.
Erdentempel is their latest album, and right away you can tell just how keen these guys are on their craft. Founded in 2001 as a quartet and originally for just one show, the German band managed to evoke such a storm of excitement at their home metal base, that disbanding into nowhere was out of the question. A lot of it seems to come down to preference, but I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't slightly let down by the second half of the album. Rammstein were the first but no longer the only.

As for the music itself: for one it's again the folkiest stuff we've seen from the band. I do still enjoy these lesser songs, and I've also read several reviews in which people's favourite moments are contained within said songs, so the album is in no way discredited. And again as always, Erdentempel packs the expected Equilibrium punch, but with a unique tinge of its own. The tinge this time isn't based around atmosphere, battle anthems, or what have you. The band, full again, released their third album, , via , on 18 June 2010. The whole thing is tinged with a bit of regret too, once you find out that long-time members and siblings Andreas Volkl and Sandra Van Eldik have recently announced their departure from the band.
The true beauty in an album such as this, however, lies in the care that has been placed in the details. Erdentempel takes on one goal and achieves it nearly flawlessly. It was later revealed that vocalist Helge Stang and drummer Manuel DiCamillo had left the band. On 7 June 2014, one day after Erdentempel 's release, it was announced that would be joining the band as new bassist, replacing Sandra Van Eldik. After the first demo release in 2003, their full-length debut »Turis Fratyr« 2005 as well as their Nuclear Blast premiere »Sagas« 2008 followed, with the band entering on 30 of the German charts. The outcome is a very emotional and above all very personal album, that leads back to the roots of the band, without neglecting the bombast of the previous two records.
Two days after the announcement of the album, founding members and siblings Andreas Völkl and Sandra Van Eldik decided to leave the band for unspecified reasons. Guitarist, composer and lyricist René Berthiaume spent almost four years working on the new creation. Equilibrioum's official fanpage in German and English. Not me, of course, I know what those bastards are doing. But more importantly, the album is chock full of catchy hooks and melodies, some of them downright infectious. Archived from on 3 March 2010. Perhaps the most rewarding feeling garnered from experiencing Erdentempel is the undeniable sense that everything was included for a reason, not merely thrown in to improve a lacklustre performance.
