      Equilibrium's first album (2005).

      Equilibrium's debut is a great album of folk metal in the roughly-defined Viking style, albeit this time focusing on the band's native German ancestry and mythology. The music is frequently fast and heavy in a speed metal style, complimented by keyboards that add the all-important folk element but occasionally go a little too far and become grating, as is the case in 'Widars Hallen.'

      For the most part, this is fairly predictable but fun folk metal in the style of Ensiferum, as fast songs like 'Wingthors Hammer' are balanced by slower offerings such as 'Unter der Eiche.' The album is at its best when combining the synthesised folk elements with the metal in a truer fusion rather than acting as a parallel, and this reaches its height in 'Nordheim,' before finale 'Wald der Freiheit' abandons the metal side of things altogether and proves that the band would still have what it takes as a neofolk outfit.
