Highlights


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. Their live performances constantly defy rules and pigeonholing. Since forming back in 1995, DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER have remained innovative and courageous, forging a form of extreme metal that is second to none. 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)! 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!).

Formed back in 1995, Germany’s DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER (= The Apocalyptic Riders) have grown from savage grindcore to a phenomenal act whose style transcends genres. In the artistic realm of the Weimar based quartet there are no rules, anarchy, a free flow of ideas and visions reign supreme!
