Folk Metal band Equilibrium have announced they will be releasing an EP this August. It will be the bands first EP. The statement reads:
In August, German epic metal heroes Equilibrium will unleash their pagan fury once again – on their very first EP to date.
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 an amazing 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!”

"as well as an amazing cover version of famous video game Skyrim’s opening theme."
Welp, worth checking out for that alone even if I wasn't a huge fan of the bands early work.
Digging: Marilyn Manson - Born Villain
puts me right off it
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
last album kinda sucked but I'm down to check this. Sagas was and always be my shit
Digging: Symptom - Opulent Atrocity
yeah Sagas ruled, and they've already posted that Skyrim cover on youtube. Unless this is a new one. Either way I'm looking forward to this
Digging: Skeletonwitch - Serpents Unleashed
should be a fun listen
Digging: Omb - SwineSong
I didn't even bother with the last album since most people said it was below average. Sagas is one of my favorite albums though. I'll probably look into this.
Digging: Obliteration - Black Death Horizon
Skipped their latest as well, first two were great.

this will most likely rule
Poet you remember the good old days when Sagas was first released. m/
Sagas freaking ruled. That 15-minute instrumental is a beast.
Digging: Lake Of Blood - Omnipotens Tyrannus
It better have some EYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH
Pretty sure Der Sturm is an old song of theirs...
"and an acoustic version of the same song plus a re-recorded and extended version of `Der Sturm´ from Turis Fratyr"
Yup, says as much in the OP.
live version of skyrim theme
Interesting. Rekreator was kind of meh, but Turis Fratyr is one of the most fun folk metal albums in my library.
