21:59 - Czerny Reiter Though, now that I think about your genre tag, you probably are after something more like this: [link]
21:57 - Czerny Reiter Red: [link] I consider this to be pretty epic. In a cosmic sense, I mean...
21:44 - Redn1ght Any Epic Doom albums that I should be checking out? The more complex riffs the better.
21:21 - !J.O.O.E.! I'm usually bored by doom that pace but it sounded almost like early Emperor doing doom.
21:20 - Apothecary I dunno, I guess I've just been spoiled too much by ROB and Elysian Blaze :p
21:20 - Apothecary The first one just really bored me tbh, though those almost Monarch-like choirs in the background were cool. I just prefer blackened doom to be a bit more... balanced, I guess, and not ALL slow tempo
21:13 - !J.O.O.E.! I dunno, I like the sound of all 4 of their tracks (less so the third one but it's still good)
German folk metallers Die Apokalyptischen Reiter have recently announced the supporting bands for their The Greatest Of The Best European Tour 2012. With 20 stations in England, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Germany (see the dates below), they will tour together with two different band lineups.
For the tour start on April 21st, 2012, at the Durbuy Rock Festival in Belgium, Germany's cult-alternative rock band Emil Bulls will join the tour bus and will be with Die Apokalyptischen Reiter for eleven shows in Benelux, France, UK, Spain and Italy as the main support. Emil Bulls are probably one of the figureheads in the German alternative rock scene and are standing for an explosive live show. Their recent album Oceanic is the most successful album in their long lasting band history.
For the shows in the German speaking area, meaning Germany, Austria and Switzerland, it was chosen the band Kontrust. Kontrust, with the headquarters in Vienna, caused quite a stir in the past two years with their extraordinary live shows and unusual video clips, also over the borders of Austria. One of the highlights probably was their performance at the Polish Woodstock Festival in front of over 100.000 people last summer.
The position for the opening act for the whole European tour was filled by the 5 Danes of Malrun. With their debut album Beauty In Chaos they got good press echoes of the metal media from all over Europe and they stand for melodic, modern metal.
