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 rather dark, while retaining the bombast and folk elements of the previous records.
Today, the band have released the official video for the brand new track ‘Eternal Destination’ via YouTube.
Check it out here:
The band states:
"The repertoire of Equilibrium is full of different songs; happy songs as well as dark songs. For us there are more colours than just black and white. We don't care about any genre boundaries, we just do what we feel like. ‘Eternal Destination’ is our first music video for one of our dark songs and we love the result, Grupa13 did an amazing job! There is also once again a guest appearance of Robse’s daughter. This video expresses exactly the emotions I've had when I wrote this song. We need the earth, but the earth doesn't need us..."
