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)!
And today, they present their brand new single ‘Euer Gott Ist Der Tod’ (= ‘Your God Is Death’). A harbinger of the apocalypse – where death and darkness unite in an invincible alliance. An epic masterpiece! Centre stage as a shining angel amongst the pitch-black chaos is former DEADLOCK singer Sabine Scherer.

“Mors et nox in concordia invicta – United are Death and Night in invincible alliance. So shall it be – until the last sound is gone, all regret is washed away and the old earth is hanging dead in the sky.” // (DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER)
