Thuringia, Germany (1995 – present)

Die Apokalyptischen Reiter (German for “The Horsemen of the Apocalypse”) are a Metal band founded in 1995 in Thuringia, Germany and are signed to the Nuclear Blast label.

They incorporate Black-, Death-, Thrash- and Power Metal, as well as Rock and Folklore in their music.

Their original style (featured on their releases up to and including “Allegro Barbaro”) consists of blended with melodic compositions establishing a more epic mood than usual in traditional death metal. influences were added in later albums, while the death metal influence has declined, resulting in less chaotic composition (often centered around a verse and chorus with a bridge and solo), more constant tempo, longer songs and some clean vocals, resulting in a more polished and accessible sound.

Concerts projected for 2007, commencing at the Antwerp Hof Ter Loo venue on April 27th, were announced as the ‘Earthshaker Roadshock’ tour in union with After Forever, Tarot, Finntroll, Machine Men and All Ends.

In 2008 followed their album “Licht” and their latest album, “Moral & Wahnsinn”, was released in 2011!

    Die Reiter sind immer noch stark, aber für eine Person mit "Fuck Me Jesus"-Mardukshirt in der Kirche einfach nicht böse genug. Das stimmt. Aber für solche Quatschköppe haben sie nun "Das Spiesserlein" veröffentlicht :)

    Rund um gelungenes Album. Klar, es ist nicht mehr so hart wie die früheren Scheiben, aber dies tut diesem Album nicht ab.

    Концерт в Самаре был просто чума! Позитив, драйв, Reiter! Dr. Pest в конце отжег с "Катюшей")

    Quite interesting album, the best are "Die Wahrheit" and "Die Leidenschaft", then "Freiheit, Gleichheit, Brüderlichkeit". "Das Paradies" is very similar to normal version, I think they should change this to other song xd Maybe "Riders on the Storm", that would be interesting in acoustic version.

    They've grown. It takes several spins to get into the album.

    Новый альбом,несмотря на некоторую смену стиля в сторону индастриала,больше похож на предыдущий и он такой же унылый.По ходу исчерпали себя Райтеры,жаль,очень жаль.

    Frechheit, Brechreiz, Schlumpfenscheiße. Wäre das der Titel des Openers, würde er das neue Album wunderbar zusammenfassen. Nach Riders On The Storm kam von den einst so großen Reitern nur noch Mist.

    Послушал новый альбом и разочаровался, что это черт возьми такое, что за хард/хеви метал. Конечно, не спорю, в альбоме есть пару интересных вещей, но альбом они не спасли. Короче говоря, скатились Райтеры и очень жаль.

    DAR have a habit of releasing tasteful acoustic songs that make the originals sound heavy-handed and dumb in comparison. A few years back it was Komm; now it's almost everything on Tiefer. Especially Das Paradies. So yes, awesome album.
