Schattenreiter is the fourth full-length studio album by the German industrial rock/medieval metal band, Tanzwut. Schattenreiter was released on April 7, 2006 by PICA Music as a two-CD digipack. The album marks their newfound sound, which incorporates a more down-tuned use of guitars, darker atmospheres and harsher vocals at times than their previous albums, making them lean towards industrial metal.

The album is eclectic in nature, ranging all the way from industrial metal with "Schattenreiter", thrash metal with "Geisterstunde", and even rockabilly with "Im Tiefen Gras" to the gothic-influenced "Spieler" with many songs emanating a dance music feel to them.[3] On the second CD, the song "Toccata" is a reworked version of a J.S. Bach composition which was recorded in a church in Berlin.[3]
