Germany’s most spectacular band are Weimar’s DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER. The band whose name translates as “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”, have proven to deliver a unique brand of melodic heaviness, accompanied by unique, intense lyrics. Since forming back in 1995, DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER have remained innovative and courageous, delivering a form of extreme metal that is second to none. In the artistic realm of the Weimar based quartet there are no rules – anarchy, a free flow of ideas and visions reign supreme!
With a highly supportive and engaged following at their side, they achieved #10 in Germany’s official charts with their album “Der Rote Reiter”. The band has played every major metal festival and countless fans have succumbed to “Reitermania” – which is the wild and crazy experience that only DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER can provide.
Now, the band are getting ready to release “Wilde Kinder” (=”Wild Children”), their new album due out on April 22, 2022 – the official successor to “Der Rote Reiter” (2017)!
In addition to this big announcement, the band have also released a music video for the title track of the album, ‘Wilde Kinder‘.
Entirely self-recorded, and mixed and mastered by Eike Freese (Chameleon Studios, Hamburg; who worked for bands like HELLOWEEN, DEEP PURPLE, ALICE COOPER), DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER celebrate a stunning return after their completely improvised ‘Jam Session’ record “The Divine Horsemen” (2021), and attack with “Volle Kraft!” (= full power!).
