|“This album was a struggle.|
Against advancing madness.
We won it!”
(DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER)
|Germany’s most spectacular band is Weimar’s DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER. The band whose name translates as “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”, has proven to deliver a unique brand of melodic heaviness, accompanied by unique, intense lyrics. Since forming back in 1995, DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER has 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 is 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, that you can watch here: https://youtu.be/Sg0Ji4swcdg
