Equilibrium – Armageddon


First a disclaimer: a “dark mood” for Equilibrium is not like a dark mood for other bands. The goofy synths still rule the roost and there still exists that signature upbeat tempo. But Armageddon is packed with brooding melodies, emotional instrumentals, and general atmosphere of pain and suffering. It all begins with the somber orchestrations of “Sehnsucht”; the track’s loneliness further exaggerated by the Eluveitie-like narration and sets the mood. “Erwachen” follows by not only charges through its starting gate but removes it from the hinges. The track is laden with power, precision, and one of the slickest key-driven choruses on the album; the chorus is big, catchy, and is chock-full of layered, multi-vocalist performances destined to haunt the rest of the album.
