Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based technical/progressive death metal project Equipoise recently announced the upcoming release of their debut full-length, Demiurgus. The album is set for release on March 8th through The Artisan Era. It is the follow up to the group’s 2016 heavily praised EP, Birthing Homunculi, whose material makes its way onto Demiurgus in a re-worked fashion far beyond their initial form.
Equipoise features an amalgamation of well-respected musicians within the technical death metal community from Pennsylvania, Illinois, Missouri, Denver, and Quebec. The band’s members play in established well-known acts including Beyond Creation, First Fragment, ex-The Faceless, Inferi, Wormhole, NYN, and more. Fans of Gorod, Inferi, Necrophagist, Vale of Pnath, and Death will appreciate all Equipoise – Demiurgus has to offer.
In support of their upcoming album, Demiurgus, Equipoise is proud to unveil a dual guitar and bass playthrough video for their recent single, “Waking Divinity”. The playthrough features Equipoise band members guitarist Phil Tougas (First Fragment, Chthe’ilist, Zealotry. Serocs) & fretless bassist Hugo Doyon-Karout (Beyond Creation, Brought By Pain) running through the song with clinical precision.
