riders are back and this time with a double album. The first one called 'Tief'
is an album like we know from this band. A mix of all the styles we are used to
hear from them. Aggressive songs, touchy ones and epic tracks, lots of
electro parts, everything
is again there. They experiment in every song with styles they played throughout
the years. There are almost no boundaries for them and that is something not a
lot of bands can say. Fans will not look the other site if the band does
something unexpected or unusual. This must be a real blessing for the band.
Folk parts, electronic elements, a grunt, everything is possible and Die Reiter
has the ability to put all the elements in songs with a head and a tail. The
first part 'Tief' can be compared with the 2008 album 'Licht', if you like that
one you will love this one also. The second CD called 'Tiefer' has a few
re-recorded songs and is for the biggest part accoustic. If you like tender and
emotional tracks, you will need a few handkerchiefs for sure. The song "Das
Paradies" sounds really Rammstein like, especially because of the Fuchs'
singing. Along-side the more emotional tracks there is also a real party song
like "Friede sei mit dir" with wind instruments and also "Auf die Liebe" is a
rather happy song. Both songs put more balance to the album.
Both CD's show that Die Apokalyptischen Reiter is a mature band and it doesn't
matter what style they choose, everything they touch turns into gold.
