Hopefully, the name Equinox will resonate with some of you as the reformed version of what used to be Beer Bear. If you are not familiar with them, they were a folk metal band from Russia who put out two great albums (“Honey” and “Beyond The Invisible Line”) and an EP and then for whatever reason decided to call it quits. Out of the ashes of that end is now born Equinox. ..From the beginning of “Сон Вратиаса” (“Sleep Vratiasa”) you will hear how this is more vocally/melodically driven band now with the operatic styling of Alla Ravna who powerfully takes control here. ...this is a band that I think could really pull off a concept or theme album based on what I heard with Lux Borealis.
