The American heavy metal band Riot is considered a pioneer of American power metal. Founded in Brooklyn in 1976, they have been through the typical separations and reunions that accompany many successful metal bands. Ups and downs aside, the band changed their name to Riot V in 2013 and the history of the band powered through.
In the course of their band history, the guys from Riot have released 16 studio albums and three live albums, among other things. As a fan you will of course know songs like "Heart Fire", "Run for Your Life", "Rolling Thunder", "On the Wings of Life", "Immortal Soul" and "Armor of Light". And maybe you even know which albums the songs appear on without even looking. But even if you've never heard of Riot, take a look round the EMP shop - they are definitely worth listening to!
