A Rammstein Special Report by Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin


A team of reporters for the Süddeutsche Zeitung-Magazin got close to Rammstein like none before: the photographer Andreas Mühe and the author Alexander Gorkow went on tour with Rammstein through Canada and the U.S. for weeks: backstage and onstage, on long drives and plane trips, on walks along the beach and through the desert, in the hotel and on the after-show parties. Mühe and Gorkow worked these experiences with the six band members and their crew into a 30-page long report, printed as a special issue of the Süddeutsche Zeitung-Magazin.

  1. That was the most beautiful thing I have read in an extremely long time. I haven’t Rammsteined in a while and this was just perfect. Thanks Maya for posting translations.

  2. Went to dallas this year for them, bought the Made In Germany super deluxe edition anf that, and still found the translated version of this article another way to experience Rammstein. Haxor/ Laszlo, you are doing a good thing!

  3. New DVD pleeeeeeeease ! lol

    been 6 years since volkerball…. –

    I can NOT wait much longer lol

  4. Look everyone, it says right in this article, that the “Till God” hurts himself everynight on stage. He does it at all of their shows. He is covered with scars. That is the Till way. No need to freak over it, he heals and he is fine.

  5. @NRammT

    Doh! My mistake. What I said was pretty blasphemous. Rest assured that I’m going to give myself 100 lashes for ever doubting him. With any luck my wounds will become infected to teach me a lesson.

  6. I can’t imagine that wound on his chest is real. It would be stupid to just leave it because it’d become infected in no time at all. Being that size an infection could easily be fatal.

  7. wtf do you mean? did you even read the comments? they might be photoshopped but even then he still had them during concerts. so even then they would still have to be some kind of makeup.

  8. @Hali:

    No, they are most definitely not photoshopped on. You can see them in videos. I agree with NRammT. Possibly part of MHB.

  9. the cuts could also be extremely easily photoshopped on. to keep the band’s image going. don’t worry about Till, he’s a big boy! 😀

  10. @LITTLELUCKYLINK, thank you very much!:)

    @NRAMMT: Lots of people claim that Till got those wounds during the “Vancouver” gig. They suspect those “metal wings parts” to be the real cause of the injury – which seems quite plausible, regarding the location of the cuts (arms and chest). If you take a good luck at Mutter pics from Vancouver you can see Till’s scars bleeding. And the cut on his chest is a very serious one. I wonder how come he didn’t get any stitches? My German speaking friend has already swept through the magazine scans and she says, that neither the journalists, nor guys themselves would ever mention about Till’s new injuries. How did he get them is still a mystery. We can only speculate. Given the fact that Till doesn’t like to whine about his cuts and bruises I doubt that he will ever give it away. But the time will show.

  11. M.H.B video ?????????????????? – this has been going round for yonks!!!
    Is it really gonna happen?

  12. Gosh I wish I could get my hands on that magazine :/
    As for the wounds, I read somewhere that something fell on him while he was helping set up the stage, probably one of the big metal pieces.

  13. it’s a little scary what Till does to himself for Rammstein’s image, but it shows such dedication from a very passionate man…
    I wonder where I can buy this magazine, it doesn’t matter if it’s all in German, I understand it just fine.

  14. Anybody else think that perhaps the scars were from something he did for the upcoming Mein Herz Brennt video? Till (along with the rest of Rammstein) repeatedly whipped himself in the Rosenrot video, and cut a hole through his cheek for the Ich Tu Dir Weh video; he clearly doesn’t seem to mind pain. Perhaps he did something in the MHB vid that lead to the lacerations?

  15. Please, I live in Spain and I can not ask for this edition here, Could anyone share the scan or at least ask me for money for the print edition? please contact me here:

    PLEASE, I will cover the COST OF THE JOURNAL, THE TIME AND EFFORT. Please, contact me. I NEED THIS!!!

  16. OmiGosh, I can’t fall asleep because of these wounds. O.O I’m still wondering what’s the real story behind them. Maybe we will find the answer…
