German folk metal band Die Apokalyptischen Reiter have released a new video for Wir Reiten. The video was in cooperation with French movie maker Yann Arthus-Bertrand and features sequences from the movie Home. Wir Reiten comes off of the band’s latest offering Moral & Wahnsinn, released in 2011.
The band talked about the experience: “When we watched Home for the first time, we were simply blown away by its grace and power. We got in touch with Fondation GoodPlanet and their chairman Bertrand, in order to search for possible ways to make this movie available to a wider public. There are only very few movies that are obligatory to watch in one’s lifetime – and Home doubtlessly ranks among them. The combination of our music and sequences of Bertrand’s movie goes way beyond the mere aesthetic value. Compressed to four minutes, it depicts the ultimate ‘dream vs. nightmare’ scenario of a world that has reached a crossroads.”
