Well I am getting psyched already because they should relase new material at some point soon.

 

There are not a lot of bands that have never, not once, had a lineup change from day one. Rammstein is one of those bands.

 

Who else here loves this band? I saw them in Chicago last summer and it was quite a spectacle.

Then there is KMFDM.

 

When Lucia sings, it is a lovely industrial metal / female nastiness treat.

Not very familiar with either of those, except Du Hast, which many people know, but if I was going to see one of them in concert, I'd lean toward KMFDM, for 3 reasons.

 

1. Singing in English (although I like the Rammstein music better).

 

2. Much better looking singer.

 

3. Almost no chance of getting "pissed" on.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

I saw Rammstein a few years ago. It was a totally spectacular concert, who can't love a band who cook their keyboard player in a giant cauldron, using a flamethrower ? :)

The Volkerball DVD is also highly recommended.

Of all these metal bands out today, I can give a little time to Rammstein. They're pretty cool. There's some artistry there.

 

They should have The Hoff do a walk-on though.  :)


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

Rammstein is too one dimensional, like GWAR but without the humour.

Indeed this sounds about right.

 

The popular German musical group Rammstein has acknowledged influence by both the aesthetic approach and material of Laibach. When members of Laibach were asked by an interviewer about Rammstein "stealing" from them, they responded that "Laibach does not believe in originality... Therefore, Rammstein could not 'steal' much from us. They simply let themselves get inspired by our work, which is absolutely a legitimate process. We are glad that they made it. In a way, they have proven once again that a good 'copy' can make more money on the market than the 'original'. Anyhow, today we share the territory: Rammstein seem to be a kind of Laibach for adolescents and Laibach are Rammstein for grown-ups" Laibach would later provide a remix for the Rammstein single Ohne Dich.

Rammstein's ok.  I haven't really kept up with them.  My favorite tracks by them are still the 2 from "Lost Highway" ("Hierate Mich" and "Rammstein").  "Tier" and "Engel" were pretty good tracks too.

 

"Juke Joint Jezebel" is pretty cool, but that's the only KMFDM track that really stood out to me.  I don't listen to much industrial.  NIN, I guess.

 

My all-time favorite industrial tracks are probably "Headhunter 3.0" by Front 242, or "Muscle in Hate" by Nitzer Ebb.

Did someone say 'fun'?

 

Hell I think Rammstein is about the most fun band I've ever seen.

The lyrics to this song are very disturbing. So it is even more fitting that they be in German.

 


You're only alive for me
I poke medals into your face
You are utterly devoted to me
You love me because I don't love you
You bleed for the salvation of my soul
A little cut and you're turned on
Your body already completely disfigured
Whatever, anything goes
I hurt you
I'm not sorry
It does you good
Listen to it scream
With you, I choose the torment
Barbed wire in the urethra
Put your flesh in salt and pus
First you die but then you'll keep living
Bites, kicks, hard blows
Needles, pliers, dull saw
Make a wish, I won't say no
And I'll insert the rodents into you
I hurt you
I'm not sorry
It does you good
Listen to it scream
You are the ship, I'm the captain
Where do you want to go?
I see your face in the mirror
You love me because I don't love you
I hurt you
I'm not sorry
It does you good
Listen to it scream
