German folk metallers Die Apokalyptischen Reiter have recently announced the supporting bands for their The Greatest Of The Best European Tour 2012. With 20 stations in England, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Germany (see the dates below), they will tour together with two different band lineups.

For the tour start on April 21st, 2012, at the Durbuy Rock Festival in Belgium, Germany's cult-alternative rock band Emil Bulls will join the tour bus and will be with Die Apokalyptischen Reiter for eleven shows in Benelux, France, UK, Spain and Italy as the main support. Emil Bulls are probably one of the figureheads in the German alternative rock scene and are standing for an explosive live show. Their recent album Oceanic is the most successful album in their long lasting band history.

For the shows in the German speaking area, meaning Germany, Austria and Switzerland, it was chosen the band Kontrust. Kontrust, with the headquarters in Vienna, caused quite a stir in the past two years with their extraordinary live shows and unusual video clips, also over the borders of Austria. One of the highlights probably was their performance at the Polish Woodstock Festival in front of over 100.000 people last summer.

The position for the opening act for the whole European tour was filled by the 5 Danes of Malrun. With their debut album Beauty In Chaos they got good press echoes of the metal media from all over Europe and they stand for melodic, modern metal.

It baffles me how that video has pretty much any likes. I understand why people like some alternative metal... but not this. This is just bad. Like, objectively bad.
