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: or, 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

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:


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 (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.

    I thought he will do it himself. He writes songs in English, why not translating it? Nobody will understand his poetry better.

    And same in Spanish, but I was completely wrong.


    • So now I'll have to buy it again. Hmmm . . . . I can't wait, my own attempt to translate are not going to well.


      • ^I'm still with messer, when I finish it I won't try to translate "In stillen Nächten", I'll wait for the translated book.


        • ^You gave me a link to a translation of Messer, I printed it out and read the German version, and the checked with the translation. As far as I can tell, the girl did a pretty good job.


          • I use more than one translation, but the girl's has been always the best one (I think) ....


            • Glad there are people happy about this, but I usually don't like translations of poetry. Especially Till's I couldn't imagine, as the words are often chosen for their sounds and specific German connotations, aside from their actual litteral meaning. I don't say a translation couldn't be good, I'm just afaid it will be "different". Unless very maybe Till is somehow involved in the translation, than it would still be different but still really Till's work.

              Auf das du mich dort findest


              • Some of us can't speak German and we translate it anyway, we'll have a good translation, so yes I'm happy about this.


                • ^What do you mean with "we translate it anyway"? We = Affenknecht or... ?

                    We = The people who can't speak German and want to read the books. We have to read a translation or translate the poems ourselves (with google translator or similar).

                      He has participated but who knows how.

                      If you are signed up to receive the Raw Dog Screaming Press newsletter you heard last week that we are publishing On Quiet Nights by internationally renowned writer and performer Till Lindemann. This is our first translation, and Lindemann’s second book of poetry originally published in German. He and his team have been great to work with, as has translator Ehren Fordyce–whose painstaking efforts went above and beyond expectation. If you are familiar with Lindemann’s work as a lyricist for Rammstein and his dramatic theatrical sense in the live arena, you are aware of his unique approach to creative endeavors.


                      • First photo of the book by Raw Dog Screaming


                        • You can preorder the kindle edition on amazon.




                          • Well, I know what I'm gonna be ordering on payday
                            Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket?


                            • ^I read that the publishers are a rather small company. So ordering directly from them will be better - and besides having a real book is nicer than a kindle-version. At least for me.


                              • ^ I want a paper book too, I have to check the shipping Costs, if are high as I expect I'll wait for Amazon, it will be released in less than two months
