Bart's accepted my request and he's told me that there isn't any version of Equilibrium around but we can get Obitus from https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/quovadis6
for a dollar.
When asked about the new record and future plans, Bart said:
"there is a very specific concept for the new record.
it's dependent on one particular milestone that I've been working on for the past few years, when that is achieved I'll focus on recording and working out those details."
He also said that he'd been limited to how much time he can dedicate to music due to personal reasons.
"but I have about 2 albums worth of material, I just want every album to have it's own specific soul, and this one - if it was released based on the riffs have - would have the vibe of defiant imagination, so not what I want,
I never release the same album twice
so it takes something special, which takes work, which takes time"
And when I asked him why doesn't he make an announcement of sorts, he said:
"I'm not going to say or do anything publicly until I'm ready - for anyone who says otherwise it's either them speculating or pretending to be in the loop when they're not"
I asked him for his permission to post this, and he gave it to me, so in case anyone's wondering, there IS a valid reason there's no new music out there, and if you want some new QV you're just gonna have to be patient.
I apologise for wording and arranging this poorly, I'm in somewhat of a rush.
