German pagan metallers Equilibrium have parted ways with vocalist Helge Stang and drummer Manuel Di Camillo.
The band announced the news via MySpace: "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."
Fuck this shit. I'm really upset about this. One of the few folk bands I really enjoy and now this has to happen. I doubt the replacing vocalist will be as good as Helge, as his vocals perfectly suited this band. FUCK FUUUUCK
