DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER - Announce Worldwide Streaming Show!
Germany’s most spectacular band are Weimar’s DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER. The band whose name translates as “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”, brandish a unique brand of melodic heaviness, accompanied by singular, 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.
The band are currently 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)! To celebrate the record’s release, a special streaming event has been revealed, which is set to be the ultimate experience of Reitermania’s live-power!
For the first time ever, the band will perform not only fan favourites but also brand new songs from their upcoming album „Wilde Kinder“. Fans from all over the world will have the chance to join this unique online-event.
The band commented: "A few weeks ago, we had to cancel our 25th anniversary show due to the pandemic. Sadly, it’s still very difficult to play shows in closed rooms in Germany. But since our fans can’t come to us, we must find a way to go to them. For weeks we have been working on "The March For Freedom" – a very special and absolutely unique REITER show. We will of course be playing some of our classics, but also some songs from our new album ‘Wilde Kinder’, that have never been played live before. The show will start on Sunday, May 1st and will be available online for one week. So, if you’re alone or have some friends around, if you’re sitting on your couch or watching on your phone from somewhere else – we will come to you. We’re so excited already!"
Entirely self-recorded, and mixed and mastered by Eike Freese (Chameleon Studios, Hamburg; who has 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!).
