Folk metal came in with such force as the new popular thing and is now drifting slowly out as legions of monotonous bands have sucked the genre dry of all originality, but these Bavarians are here to breathe new life into this genre with their second album "Sagas". Equilibrium already burst onto the folk metal scene with incredible energy three years ago with the impressive but somewhat one-track minded "Turis Fratyr" and now return with a more mature, more diverse and truly masterful epic opus to take the world by storm.

Equilibrium are one of the most promising young folk metal bands out there - at least for most people. I myself wasn't that impressed with Turis Fratyr, it was enjoyable but it sounded a bit to much like Menhir and many other more underground German Folk/Pagan bands mixed with Finntroll. But now they are back and have gathered everything they can, to bring one epic masterpiece who will surely convince all critics!

Absolutely! Just revisiting this album now, was a 10 then, and is a 10 now. Superb melodies.

Not even the word "epic" can describe just how beautiful and aventurous this album is....heavenly music. I've had it for over 14 months and still can't believe humans crafted something like this.

I've decided that the violin solo in 'Mana' (14:00 mins in to the song) is my favourite section of music ever written (and I've listened to a lot of music!), its so beautiful how it slides down the scale and then rises and flattens out at the end. I'm not just some mega Equilibrium fan boy making ridiculous outlandish statements either. Mana is just THAT good, those who haven't listened to it do so now! You might want to bring a clean pair of underwear also.

It's a nice solo and Mana has several brilliant melodies. They could have written an entire album based on this song. I know this song like the back of my hand at this point now since I probably spent around 50 hours transcribing it, and I'd have to say my favorite part is 9:10-10:05. There's a ton going on there at the same time and I get in some sort of trance in several places of the song

Great album, just a couple of songs that are fine but not super awesome makes it a straight 9 in my opinion. I really hope Equilibrium will deliver songs as good as this in the future as well. Rekreatur is good, this is on a whole other level though.

Agreed, may I ask how you are going transcribing it? That's one mighty job are you using guitar pro?

Yes. It was insane to take it on in the first place but in the end worth it, because awesome song is awesome. I just uploaded a video for people without GuitarPro or just to hear what it sounds like. Still some modifications to be made though http://youtu.be/t2mZ0dhnaTs if you wanna check it out (there's a link if you have GP6 too). Cheers!

I came back to this album after not listening to it for about four years and it's still amazing. Definitely my favorite release of theirs. Blut Im Auge is my jam.
