German pagan metallers EQUILIBRIUM have announced the addition of vocalist Robse to the group's ranks.Commented mainman/guitarist René Berthiaume: “We know Robse for quite some time now, so for us it was a just a logical decision having him as the new singer of EQUILIBRIUM. "The recordings are on and with his stunning voice we got shitloads of new possibilities for the new album up our sleeves! The mood in the band is fantastic and we can't wait to enter the stage with Robse!" Added Robse: "I am really proud and thankful for being a part of the EQUILIBRIUM family now! Two years ago, René asked me if I wanted to handle the vocals on one of his projects. So the foundation was already there. Now being the singer of his main band is just amazing! The boys and the girl welcomed me so warmly and I am SO looking forward to the things to come!" A short video message from the band introducing the new singer can be viewed below. In February 2010, EQUILIBRIUM parted ways with vocalist Helge Stang and drummer Manuel Di Camillo "due to personal reasons." The band stated at the time, "There is no bad blood between us and we wish them the best of luck for all future endeavours. We shared some really special moments on stage. Nevertheless, this will in now way affect the music of EQUILIBRIUM. The songs will still be written and composed by René Berthiaume." EQUILIBRIUM's "Blut im Auge" video can be viewed below. The track comes off the group's second album, "Sagas", which entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 30 back in July 2008. The album features a guest appearance by Ulrich Herkenhoff, who is said to be "one of the most famous pinpipe players and can be heard on the soundtrack of 'The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King'." "Sagas" also features a violin solo by Agnes Malich, deputy concertmaster of the Augsburg Philharmonic Orchestra. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/equilibrium.
