DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER

‘Licht’

Nuclear Blast/The End Records

A rather strange concept of death and folk metal coming together, but anything goes and with DAR’s 2008 offering ‘licht’ this is no exemption, pounding drums fastened with guttural German death vocals and backed up by crunching guitars. Even if the language barrier eludes non-German speakers, the music makes up for its difficulty in sing-along. Seems to be the norm for well known German bands to sing in German, Oomph!, Rammstein, DAR, Subway To Sally. But the essence remains, the fact that this is an album essential for any death/folk metal fan. An album that answers much to fellow countrymen Subway To Sally and Haggard. DAR have stepped out of the ‘light’ (licht).
