Israeli Folk Black metal band Arafel - featuring former Equilibrium vocalist Helge Stang - recently finished work on the album cover of their new third album For Battle Once Fought. The art contribution belongs to well-known artist Kris Verwimp (Absu, Ancient Rites, Moonsorrow).

The album was recorded on October 2009 and mixed and mastered on January 2010 in Hertz Studio (Poland) with Wojtec and Slawek Wieslawski (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated). Additional clean vocals were performed by Yohaj Davidoff (Reign Of Architect, Prowlers, ex-Acropolis) and recorded at Amaseffer's studio by Yuval Kramer (Amaseffer, Prey For Nothing).

According to the band the album features 8 tracks "filled by aggression and epic war atmosphere". Song samples are available at the band's MySpace and Facebook. Arafel is now looking for a label to release the album.

Sounds really cool to hear Helge singing english lyrics. But I still miss him in Equilibrium.. Anyone know why he left the band?

Not sure why he left, but he was the only reason i didn't like Equilibrium. I found his vocals were terrible and made the sound bland. Doesn't look to promising for Arafel, not that their vocal department was strong anyway
