Finnish Metal Expo 2012 Day One

After being in Finland for a full year now, I once again was able to attend the annual Finnish Metal Expo in Helsinki. A good omen for the weekend was the fact that for the first time in weeks, the weather was not so freezing that my fingers would be tempted to fall off.

Perhaps a difference from last year, that I had noticed immediately was the fact the exhibition itself had shrunk a bit. Less guests, and less retail stands of course means smaller crowds and I wondered just what that would mean for the rather exciting lineup this year, which featured Swallow the Sun, ICS Vortex, Turisas and many more!

Die Apokalyptischen Reiter Announces Best-Of Album

After eight studio albums in fifteen years and over 600 live shows, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter is presenting the band's first official best-of collection, "The Greatest of the Best." The release contains liner notes for each album, a complete history timeline, all lyrics, guitar tabs on selected songs, rare and brand new photos and of course the 20 best Reitersongs of all time. "The Greatest of the Best" is set for release on November 18th, 2011.

Commented by the band: “The youngest Rider fans were not even born when the debut album was released, so we can use the words 'cross-generational,' now. Who would have ever thought? Die Apokalyptischen Reiter would like to thank their audience with this CD, especially for their passion and loyalty. With over 100 songs, it was not easy to select the 20 best.

"So the band has searched their archives, set lists and guest books of the past, to find out the songs that have moved most. Musical boundaries and limits have never been subject to the selection on The Greatest of the Best. Packaging and the booklet could not be more opulent, the seaman yarn of the liner notes will even die-hard fans let their knees tremble. Rare and brand-new photos, an elaborate cover like for production as a studio album. The Greatest of the Best is a jewel.”
