EQUILIBRIUM recently announced the addition of vocalist Robse and drummer Hati to the group's ranks.
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 second album, "Sagas", entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 30 back in July 2008.
