Bavarian pioneers of black/folk metal, Equilibrium have so far provided us with three brilliant albums, 2005’s Turis Fratyr, 2008’s Sagas and 2010’s Rekreatur (as well as an EP released in 2013). The band combine a number of influences such as folk metal, “Viking” metal and symphonic black metal, whilst their riffs reflect traditional Germanic and Pagan melodies and their lyrical themes focus on Germanic tales. Although Equilibrium holds a similar sound to bands such as Turisas and Korpiklaani, they are distinctive in their own right.
