Black Metal




Is black metal too gloomy for your liking? Does it lack the optimistic note so typical of many power and folk metal bands? If so, you should definitely check out Equilibrium. This German band has been around for fifteen years and built their foundations on a combination of black and pagan metal. As the years progressed, they integrated more and more folk influences and symphonic metal into their songs, with ‘Erdentempel’ (2014) as the perfect illustration of this evolution. Their most recent outing ‘Armageddon’ (2016) brings a bipolar attack: some songs are in keeping with the rest of their catalogue whereas a song like ‘Born to Be Epic’ brings a departure from that formula by combining dubstep with metal. Equilibrium are never boring and they will get the crowd moving! (#GMM19)
