DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER (="The Apocalyptic Riders") are tearing down every barrier since more than one decade: Between melancholy and soulfulness, unruly hate and infinite love, infatuating folklore and smashing, brachial sound, the Riders have found their home. Over and over new influences, again and again something different – nevertheless the music is refined with an undeniable charm. This blow on the coals with the inner fire of passion makes Fuchs, Pitrone, Volk-Man, Dr. Pest and Sir G to one of the best German live acts. Their enormous creativity makes sure that DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER can't be bounded to conventional metal. Even more: They expand it to a roundelay of emotions, languages and ecstasy.
While a gale was blowing outside and explosions obsessed the world, thunderbolts of constructiveness struck their laboratory. An album was crafted out of stone, metal and cotton balls:
R I D E R S
S T O R M
On their sixth studio effort "Riders On The Storm", the Riders corroborate their position as one of the most innovative and heaviest German-speaking (better: singing) metal acts. And now, they even take a big step forward!
The influence of roaring guitars, relaxed beats and PINK FLOYD-esque soundscapes creates comforting shivers. On top: lyrics that take away the listener's breath, touch hearts deeply and give strength in every situation. Infinite strength, courage and the will to live. "Riders Of The Storm" redefines the band without getting off the course. This record need its own superlative!
