Der Rote Reiter was produced by the band and co-producers Alexander Dietz (HEAVEN SHALL BURN) and Eike Freese (DEEP PURPLE, KAI HANSEN) at Chameleon Recording (Chemical Burn Studios).

Says co-producer Alexander Dietz on the new REITER album:
“DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER are back. Merciless, fresh and with lots of joy of playing. They overcome the balancing act of restless heaviness and graceful beauty easily!”
