Equilibrium takes us on a journey back to the old days: after recently unveiling a redesign of their hit debut album “Met”, German epic metalheads have decided to take us further down the path, introducing us today a piece that has been hidden in a bedside drawer for almost 15 years.
Buried in dust and old memories, band founder and guitarist René Berthiaume resurrected these fragments of an unfinished track from their early years as a band and completed the song, before recording it for the very first time with the current formation of the group. As the perfect birthday present for their fans, the track is titled “XX” to celebrate the 20 years of the band’s existence.
René Berthiaume comments: “This October turns out to be our October Old School. After our remake of ‘Met’ we are happy to release a theoretically brand new track. Just theoretically, because parts of this song are based on some pretty old bits and pieces that were created around the time after our first albums. We had a lot of fun taking those parts back and finalizing this song in the version it is now. “
Check out the clip on “XX” below. Stream or download the song here.
Equilibrium’s sold-out second album, Sagas will finally be reissued on vinyl on November 12. There are only a few copies left to order, here.
