Girls under Glass is one of the most important bands of the electro-industrial-gothic szene. They have left their footprints by influencing and inspiring a lot of other bands as well as by creating a lot of hits. The band was founded in 1986, and they have been around since then. Well, a long period, with lots of changes, but their cult status has never changed and Equilibrium shows why: Gothic, electro-industrial sounds, dark wave and heavier parts are very well mixed and balanced. Equilibrium is an intense, diversified and emotional piece of music. It is a re-release with two hidden tracks and a very interesting cover version of Kraftwerk's song Radioaktivitat (this cover version was done by Trauma, a side project of GUG). The beginning of the first track "Roses of death" reminds me a little bit of Raison d'etre and I definetly love the whole song. Vocalist Volker Zacharias does a very good job, supported by female vocalist Jenny Kahler who sings soft and very playfully. Especially on "protean dreams" Jenny Kahler shows that she is a talented gothic vocalist. No wanna-be operatic style, no girlish voice but a remarkable voice that fits very well to the music. This release is never boring, the songs are complex and vary from balladesque (love is) to heavier (future assault, that has in my opinion a few glimpses of Rammstein). Therefore, instead of reviewing every single song, I just write my personal stand out tracks: Roses of death, new world order, protean dream, love is, future assault and the cover song Radioaktivitat. This release really got me. Even if you are not into this genre you should give it a try and listen to it.
