The Equinoxem word, is the fusion of Equinox, Noctem (from latin "Night") and Nox (from greek "Night"), and the non-literal meaning approaches to: Nocturnal Equinox.In astrology, Solstices and Equinoxes have a deepest meaning, physic and esoteric. In both cases, are the born, equilibrium and death of Sun. The Heathens based their main ritual ceremonies in these energy change's time. Lyrics of the band takes differents topics like feelings, sensations, beliefs, and too, religions and occult matters. Music is not only perform notes to make sounds , less when feelings comes in the game. Special frequencies that can trascend worlds. The atmosphere of Equinoxem 's sound pretends start the transmission of those sensations , create a succession of images and landscapes about sorrow, fury, happiness, hope and any soul-mind-state can be possible to reach. A travel to ancient times and past-lives, the ones who give us the knowledge about ourselves. Walking through this path of self knowing, the music is just one of the wonderful keys.
