FORUM RULES ABOUT WEB-BASED LINKS TO MUSIC AND VIDEO'S

Based on latest discussions on this forum, and studiing copyright laws, it is necessary to state out new forum mandatory rules, effective immediately, so, here we are.

LINKS TO MUSIC & VIDEOS: what is legal/what is not.
NEW RULES in the forum state:

From now on in our forum users shal NOT POST TOPICS THAT containin the following :
• Requests for or links to MP3s, music videos, or other files of questionable legality
• Bootlegs

So, please do not POST A LINK TO music or videos which does not directly originate from an officially legal site.

An OFFICIALLY LEGAL SITE is: rammstein.com or rammstein.de, universal music, a legitimate music site like MTV or VIVA. The links must be direct and linked only to the approved site. Any links which have copied and transferred the music or videos from an official legal site to ANYWHERE else are NOT OFFICIAL.

• Do not ASK FOR A LINK to music or videos. If there is a legal site for either listening or viewing, xTERNAL will provide the information in the NEWS section of www.RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE.com.

WHAT YOU CAN DO in the forums: You can DISCUSS a new song or a new video.

WHAT YOU CANNOT DO in the forums: provide illegal links or ask for links, give directions of any kind as to where something might be found (examples: file-sharing, other fansites, etc.). Screen caps will be allowed (within reason) AFTER a video has been made available through an OFFICIAL LEGAL LINK. Fan remixes of songs will be allowed (within reason) after the song has been officially released.

The above restrictions are necessary not because we are being “damn babies” or “. The reason is simply that RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE has made the decision to not be a facilitator of illegal activities involving copyrighted material. The reason for that is also clear. Rammstein’s Management has shown aggressive behaviour in combating copyright infringement.

Anyone who violates the spirit of the aforementioned expansion/explanation of what the RULES mean here as applied to music and videos (and this also includes the "making of videos") will meet up with one of the following consequences:

POST BLOCKED, LINK ERASED AND WORSE.... BANNED IF NECESSARY.

If you have ANY questions about what may or may not be acceptable here, you can always PM a Moderator and ask first before posting something that might get you in trouble here.

•any links to www.youtube.com (or other sharing sites of a similar nature)are generally not allowed.
While some videos like fan made items or spoof animations are allowed, we do not allow linking to youtube. Oftentimes there is/are illegal videos of Rammstein performances to the side of the linked videos. Actual Rammstein Videos which are very illegal to be hosted by that site - therefore we cannot allow links to youtube to be allowed.

So, links to youtube are now allowed - ONLY IF it is a fanmade video by you, and does not contain bootleg footage or footage of live performances or released performances. Stills from photos found on the net are OK. A montage is OK. Clips of released footage are NOT OK.

Please try to understand that sometimes while we may allow a certain individuals fanmade videos, and deny another persons it is usually because the content in it could get the forums in trouble.

Also if some individuals post their fanmade video and it turns out to be bootleg footage that they filmed themselves at a concert and consider that "fanmade" - then we will have to reverse the ruling on allowing fanmade videos PERIOD!

Here is an update on what is considered "fanmade".
Fanmade is fanmade. You did it yourself. Like cut and paste. You creatd everything yourself. No footage filmed by someone else no clips. Still images are OK.
For example:
If you go out and find 6 banana slugs in the yard, dress them up in LAB outfits, and put the skinniest one in a paper boat and play the music to SEEMANN on a kazoo. That is fanmade.

If you have a coverband and you do your own video or you have footage of YOUR band's performance. That is fanmade.

If you have images that you sketched of how you think the video for a song should have been and you put it to music - I think we can allow that.

Use your creativity.

IF YOU SEE VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, REPORT IT BY USING THE EXCLAMATION MARK IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF RELEVANT POST.

  • I'm sure you have read about the shooting of the two videos, what do you think about it?

    Comment


    • The second sounds interesting, first sounds like they're doing a new Pussy. And a third is also planned.

      So shooting three videos in three weeks, or maybe two more, as RZK talked about five videos. I wonder how close together they'll be released or if they'll be spread over the next couple of years and they just shoot them now to get it over with?

      Anyway they're in for a busy year, I take it they'll have to learn and rehearse a new show. Some of the new material should be in the show I expect?

      • I haven't read the news on it, but which ever videos are directed by Jonas Ackerlund are going to be both pieces of garbage and also praised like they were the best thing since sliced bread.

After all, nothing is better than eternal happiness, and a ham sandwich is certainly better than nothing. Therefore a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness."

        • And Joern Heitmann?

          Comment


          • ^The inverse. It will be good in the worst case scenario, yet nobody is going to praise it that much.

              • I'm very excited for the new videos. Although I have a tiny concern about the Heitmann video. The description of the casting-call says: " a wild clip in a historical style. A woman from the 1920s-1950s freed herself from the classic model of the women of the time. She does not hesitate to pour coffee on her husband’s shirt and to climb on barricades."

                In addition, more models were asked to play extras for this video.

                I know it's ridiculous to already make assumptions about the video, but I feel this could go a little in a clichè direction. I always admired Rammstein for being the lead actors in their music videos, instead of hiring actors. In addition they rarely do videos in the classic A-plot, B-plot style, in which there is a story which is potrayed by actors (A-plot) and in the background the band is playing the song (B-plot). They have succesfully avoided that style. Even in the Åkerlund videos, at least the band were the actors in the A-story.

                Also, I think releasing a "Women's liberation"-themed music video with some nudity, in 2018, is a little tame and flat. Unless it's done really well or there is some unique twist to it.

                But again, it's a little early and I think I will stay away from spoilers until the video is released.

                  • Richard, I read you were talking about the new Rammstein album and that it's probably going to be coming out in April. What can we expect beyond that?

                    We'll be on tour probably for the next three or four years. We start with the first European tour before we come to America and then we go to Australia, then probably back to Europe. It's gonna be a lot of touring, basically. We're also preparing ourselves for doing some videos. We're going to shoot probably like, five videos for the new Rammstein record. Besides that, I'm probably always in the studio writing new songs or trying different things so I'm always - if I'm not on tour I'm in the studio writing anyway.

                        • Looks like the album is getting finished now. The band has already filmed the first music video, and is shooting the second one tomorrow. So I guess the first single will be out in February.

                          The official promotion has not started, because according to a recent interview with Richard, the band hasn't really decided a official title or tracklist for the album yet. In addition, Richard said that the band will probably not have time to finish mixing on the 5 bonus tracks (16 songs were finished, but only 11 will be on the album).

                          Comment


                          • ^ A pitty, because they always have songs in their bonus tracks that should have made it to the album.

                            • Small update:

                              The music video shot on January 21st, was actually shot by Jonas Åkerlund (not Phillip Stözl). Some pictures were released on Rammstein's instagram-story (don't know how the fuck that works, I am an old man now).

                              It looks like it has a religous theme, several actresses are dressed as nuns. Don't forget, this is the video that asked for actors in a casting call that were willing to get undressed and simulate sex.

                              Åkerlund has always worked really damn fast, most of his videos were released less than a month after shooting. So maybe the first music video is not that far away since we already have some teasers.
