Equilibrium - Part Ways With Vocalist And Drummer, Update


German pagan metallers Equilibrium have parted ways with vocalist Helge Stang and drummer Manuel Di Camillo. This has been reported by the organizers of Winterfire Festival at which Equilibrium were supposed to perfom next weekend (13th February 2010). So far the band itself has only published the following statement on its official Myspace site:

"We regret to inform you that we have to cancel our appearance at Winterfire Festival due to serious restructuring within the band. We regret this deeply and hope for your understanding. Of course we will inform you as soon as possible about the future of Equilibrium."



UPDATED on 13.02.2010:

By now the band has confirmed the split officially. The statement on the band's Myspace reads as follows:

"Unfortunately we have to tell you that Helge, Manu and Equilibrium go their separate ways for personal reasons. We parted on amicable terms and we wish them all the best for their future. We really had an amazing time with them on stage!
Certainly, this split is not going to impact the music of Equilibrium which means the songs will still be composed by René Berthiaume. At the moment, we are recording our third album at Helion Studios in Munich which will be released in June. And we can already give away that this album will contain plenty of bombast, harshness, epic poetry, emotions, curious musical surprises and much more!
Every announced concert is going to take place! (Except for the Winterfire-Festival) Of course you will be informed instantly, as soon as we've got any news about new Equilibrium band members."

I fear very much for the band's future... The drummer was awesome and Helge was very good too. By the way, those who wanna hear him again can try Arafel, even though his voice is weird with this band, he sounds like Tvangeste's vocalist... Anyway, this is very bad news, much more dramatic than Dimmu Borgir's so-called drama.

And about the retard who thinks English is metal's one language, well... you're a freaking, ethnocentric and racist bitch. There.

You do realize that it actually is Tvangeste's vocalist in Arafel's second release?

Nope lol so that's why his name is "Ilia" or something like that... My only contact with Arafel is a short listening on their myspace page. But I was actually right when I said he sounded like Tvangeste's vocalist, since it WAS that guy So, what will happen to Helge Stang???

At least we know the band's not gonna fall apart... But replacing a vocalist is always risky. You can tune a guitar so it sounds the same as it did with another guitarist, but you can't do so with a voice. Let's wait and see.

I thought that I saw in the update that the band was splitting up at first, but that fortunately isn't the case.

Also, I love listening to non-English bands.

And By the way, Equilibrium already proved us that they can be good without vocals too (Mana).

That's really disappointing, both of them were great at what they did. I hope Equilibrium can find a new vocalist and drummer soon. They're a great band.
