Mastermind Donnie van Stavern (bass) states:
"'Victory' is the first song on the new album "Armor of Light" and the first song I wrote for it! I'm taking it back to my writing roots of "Thundersteel"/"Privilege of Power" style, a fast no holds barred face melting assault on your ears! Although it is about a victorious battle of Thunder Bay it also means a victory of sorts for us and the fans for keeping the torch burning! Rise up your voices strong and scream along cry out...Victory!"

The album was produced by Chris "The Wizard" Collier (METAL CHURCH, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, SLIPKNOT, KORN a.o.), while the cover artwork was created by Mariusz Gandzel (CRYSTAL VIPER a.o.).

The track listing of Armor Of Light:
1. Victory
2. End Of The World
3. Messiah
4. Angel's Thunder, Devil's Reign
5. Burn The Daylight
6. Heart Of A Lion
7. Armor Of Light
8. Set The World Alight
9. San Antonio
10. Caught In the Witches Eye
11. Ready to Shine
12. Raining Fire

The new songs promises to please fans of the Thundersteel-era of RIOT, as main song writer and long time Mark Reale music collaborator Don Van Stavern undertakes a lot of the writing as he did on Thundersteel, The Privilege Of Power and the latest offering Unleash The Fire.

More about RIOT V:
Since their legendary debut album Rock City (1977), RIOT has released numerous heavy metal classics, including Fire Down Under (with classics like 'Swords And Tequila'), their masterpiece Thundersteel (1988), and the unforgotten The Privilege Of Power (1990).

After the death of Mark Reale and the departure of Tony Moore, Todd Michael Hall (from Michigan, USA), completed the line-up of the band, which in the meantime performed under the name of RIOT V under the auspices of the two long term members and main songwriters Donnie van Stavern (bass) and Mike Flyntz (guitar). With the critically acclaimed Unleash The Fire (2014), a pure power metal jewel once again underlined the musical importance and influence of the quintet.

Many artists name-check RIOT as an important influence of their musical career and have paid tribute to the power metal godfathers on multiple occasions. The list is long and includes several well-known acts such as HAMMERFALL ('Flight Of The Warrior'), Luca Turilli's RHAPSODY ('Thundersteel'), AXEL RUDI PELL ('Warrior') and newcomers such as NIGHT DEMON ('Road Racin'), ALPHA TIGER ('Flight Of The Warrior'), SAVAGE MASTER ('Swords And Tequila') and STALLION ('Rock City').

RIOT V live:
10.+11.03. J Kawasaki - Club Citta
26.-28.07. D Brande - Headbangers Open Air
02.-04.08. D Wacken - Wacken Open Air

Voi and Luger told us: “This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious. Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
