Equilibrium release album arkwork for Armageddon

EQUILIBRIUM have unveiled the cover art for their new studio album!

In light of the new album ‘Armageddon’, which is set to drop August 12th, 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records, EQUILIBRIUM have released the cover artwork!

German epic metal pioneers, EQUILIBRIUM, will set aflame a brand new bonfire this summer with their fifth studio album. Guitarist, composer and lyricist René Berthiaume spent almost two years working on this new opus called ‘Armageddon’. The result is rather dark, yet still contains the bombast and folk elements of the previous records.

In regards to their new album artwork, René states: “Once more, Skadi (Rosehurst) created a wonderful piece of art, which captures the more darker atmosphere of Armageddon‘perfectly. As on the album, you can discover a lot of details in the artwork as well. Skadi’s style – traditionally drawn motifs become one overall picture digitally – fits marvelously to our music. Again and again, it’s an exciting feeling if the music becomes even more concrete and livelier by the artwork.”  The album has been recorded, mixed and produced by René and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Los Angeles).
