BALANCE is the history of MELODIC ROCK. Formed in the early 80’s by BOB KULICK (KISS, ALICE COOPER, MEAT LOAF etc) with Peppy Castro (ex WIGGY BITS, BLUES MAGOOS) and Doug Katsaros (keyboard player who later found fame and fortune with KISS, Rod Stewart, Cher, Bon Jovi, Sinéad O’Connor and Aerosmith among others), they have released 2 albums which made waves between the fans of this particular music style, especially “In For The Count” which was recently reissued by Rock Candy / Universal.
The band members after the end of BALANCE in the 80’s went on to have shining careers in the music business, however they never had the chance to work on a new Balance album and complete their musical circle, so as soon as they got a proposal from Frontiers Records, and after the recent reissue of their classic “In For The Count” album on Rock Candy / Universal, they decided the time was right to start working again.
Completed with the help of Bret Chassen on drums (who also co-produced the album together with Bob Kulick), the resulting album “Equilibrium” is truly a labour of love: a record written and crafted with the highest respect for the fans and the same enthusiasm as the old days, bringing back the trademark sound and updating it to the production techniques and taste of the new millennium. A true Melodic Rock masterpiece!
