EQUILIBRIUM – music video for “Renegades” 8-Bit-Version released

German epic metal pioneers, EQUILIBRIUM, will set aflame a brand new bonfire this summer with their sixth studio album. “Renegades” (out: August 23rd via Nuclear Blast) is heralding a watershed, the turn of an era for this genre. This is metal at its most epic and most monumental, bearing huge songs, resting firmly in the Zeitgeist with a massive, modern production and sporting quite a number of eclectic influences. And before the bleating erupts: It’s working, it’s blending in – and above all, it’s still Equilibrium. Quite possibly more than ever.

The album’s limited Digipac includes an exclusive bonus CD with 8-bit versions of all songs on the album. Today the band presents you a small foretaste of this bonus CD in the form of a video of the 8-bit version of the song “Renegades – A Lost Generation”.

You can watch the video here:

The band states:
“Most of us grew up with computer games in the 80s and 90s so everytime we hear these 8 Bit sounds its kinda nostalgic.We always had this idea in mind to make 8 Bit versions of our songs and this time we just did it! This clip will give you a little taste of how it sounds.”

The official video clip of the song “Renegades – A Lost Generation” can be seen here:
