DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER - Release Video For New Single "Tiki"
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.
