The End Records is proud to announce the signing of German powerhouse DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER. On November 10th 2009, the band will be releasing their latest LP 'Licht' in the US. The US version will come with six bonus tracks (2 studio, 4 live) and stunning new album art including an alternate cover.
DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER translated into English means Horseman of the Apocalypse and the band sounds as mighty as their name, with a mix of heavy riffage, melody and bittersweet lyrics that is all their own.

In 2008, the band released 'Licht' and it made it's way on to the German charts, peaking at number 29. Along with the 'Licht' US release this year, DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER is slated to co-headline Paganfest in September.
