German metallers DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER have released a new track from their upcoming experimental record, “The Divine Horsemen”, which will be out July 2nd, 2021. “Ymir” is again referencing black metal, but in a more expansive way compared to the very straight forward & compressed last single “Nachtblume”. The song’s lurking mid-tempo slowly builds up an eerie & melancholic mood, and finally culminates in an outburst of cathartic fury.

DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER on “Ymir”: „The history of creation in Germanic mythology tells about “Ymir” as the first living creature. Yet his story is mostly unknown, compared to the early Germanic deities. In our piece we’re building a world of ice and eternal frost in memory of this ancient hermaphroditic giant. The majestic sounds go hand in hand with the powerful pictures we have chosen for the video.”
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!
