Since their legendary debut album »Rock City« (1977), RIOT has released numerous heavy metal classics, including »Fire Down Under« (with classics like 'Swords And Tequila'), their masterpiece »Thundersteel«(1988), and the unforgotten »The Privilege Of Power« (1990). After the death of Mark Reale and the departure of Tony Moore, Todd Michael Hall (from Michigan, USA), completed the line-up of the band, which in the meantime performed under the name of RIOT V under the auspices of the two long term members and main songwriters Donnie van Stavern (bass) and Mike Flyntz (guitar). With the critically acclaimed »Unleash The Fire« (2014), a pure power metal jewel once again underlined the musical importance and influence of the quintet. The bands latest offering »Armor Of Light« was released this year through Nuclear Blast Records.
