These riders of the storm have always been quite a strictly German affair, but over the past few years Die Apokalyptischen Reiter have broadened their horizons and now have interest from more than just one centralised area or Europe. After a massively successful previous album "Riders On The Storm" and hugely entertaining festival shows around Germany it would seem the perfect time to capitalise on the newfound popularity the band have managed to draw.

The unpredictable Reiter are back with album number seven. The extravaganza band from Thüringen, Germany has been enjoying the spotlight directed on them following the very successful Riders on the Storm release in 2006.

While the new offering, Licht, strays from the winning formula of its precursor, it remains a dedicated effort despite the lighter tone of the songs and the tuned down devastating aggression. So from the start I give them the thumb up for avoiding releasing a clone of Riders on the Storm. These guys know better than to do that and lose the creative spirit that ranks them up there with bands upholding similar standards, bands such as Rammstein and Moonspell.
