After a dry spell of three years, German viking folk metallers Equilibrium fans can rejoice because they have announced today the release of their very first EP to date. Waldschrein, as it is called, will be released on August 16th via Nuclear Blast. The cover art as well as the tracklist can be seen below. A full-length studio album is to follow next year.

The EP was produced by guitarist René Berthiaume in Helion Studios and mixed and mastered by the Resetti Brothers - namely Joerg Umbreit and Vincent Sorg - in their Principal Studios. Waldschrein encompasses the brand new title track and an acoustic version of the same song plus a re-recorded and extended version of "Der Sturm" from Turis Fratyr (originally sung by ex-vocalist Helge Stange, now by front man Robse Dahn). Moreover, it contains "Zwergenhammer"- a previously unreleased older song - as well as a cover version of famous video game Skyrim's opening theme.

The band commented: "We're really looking forward to release this EP, because we all have to wait until next year for our next full-length album to be released. This makes it the perfect chance to release some songs and recordings that didn't make it on any regular album because they are so exclusive. The best thing yet is that with Waldschrein we can provide the fans with a little foretaste for what expects them in 2014!"

Cool looking forward to this. Digging the cover art as well.

If there ever was a band made to cover a Skyrim song, Equilibrium is that band.
I hope their lineup change doesn't drag them down to the depths of mediocrity, fortunately this looks promising.

I listened to the Skyrim cover last year, Rene posted it on his Facebook page, it was fucking epic.
Looking forward to this

Didn't really like their last album (their acoustic songs were pure shit, Like, who plays power chords acousticly? )
Listened to a live version of the Skyrim song, I don't complain
