DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER - Release Video For New Single "Tiki", Special 25th Anniversary Record "The Divine Horsemen" Set For July 2nd Release, Preorder Starts Today!

DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER - New Album! - 2021-04-16

2021-04-16 - In celebration of their 25th anniversary Germany's DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER have prepared a truly special release with "The Divine Horsemen" - a unique musical experiment: A session that has been recorded without any rehearsals or preparations during two days in autumn 2020.



The band, the engineers and a couple of friends locked themselves up in a rehearsal space and taped 500 minutes of improvised musical magic spanning anything from eruptive grind to tribal metal not unlike “Roots” by Sepultura as well as psychedelic, trippy pieces and even nods to black metal (Nachtblume, Ymir). The material has been filtered into an 80 minutes long double vinyl / 2CD release and produced by Alexander Dietz from Heaven Shall Burn, and offers a stunning, captivating journey through a myriad of sounds and styles. Adding a variety of effects and instruments like didgeridoo, djembe, doumbek, gong, frame drums, jaw harp to the quintet’s sonic arsenal and combining it with improvised, multilingual vocals “The Divine Horsemen” is in essence also a tribute to a variety of cultures and influences.

On July 2nd, 2021, Nuclear Blast will release “The Divine Horsemen” physically as strictly limited double LP with 32-page LP booklet featuring illustrations for each track crafted by vocalist Fuchs, as limited 2CD with 36-page booklet and on all digital platforms. In line with the uniqueness of this recording, the physical formats will only be available once!

DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER comment on the release:
"It's been more than ten years since, on a boozy campfire night in South Tirol, the genie of the 'two-day-record' sprung out of the bottle for the first time. In the year 2020, our 25th anniversary as a band, we have gifted ourselves with it. Five friends making music together, letting themselves go, reveling in the past and experimenting without limitations. Without rehearsal, composition or reflection: music in its most primordial form, only intended for the moment. Are we still able to be the small, wild boys of the past, who have become men with a history by now? Can we destroy and resurrect ourselves within just a few hours? Just like old times when we didn't know anything about music, and there wasn't any right or wrong, no good nor evil. The star was to explode!
We wish you a pleasant journey!
Happy birthday to us!"
