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.

    Do you mean these?

    I'm pretty sure those photos are old

    • ^That's my feeling too. The picture of Paul and Ollie is from the Bryan Adams' shoot.

        I have seen that picture were Hellner points a rifle at Richard years ago, It must be from the "Liebe ist für alle da"-sessions.

        That being said, you came past an interesting topic; who is producing this record? I remember Flake saying they were still looking for a producer. I hope very much that Hellner produces this record as well. In the case of Rammstein, I think Hellner's biggest contribution to the album's sound is making sure all the technical aspects are in place, in addtion to giving advice and bringing out the best possible performances from the musicians. Therefore I doubt that changing the producer would change Rammstein's sound dramatically.

        • After hearing "Skills in Pills", what do you guys think about Peter Tägtgren producing the next Rammstein album? He is busy with "Pain" now, but he might have time later during recording sessions.

          Comment


          • Could be that someday, for certain parts of the workflow, they will ask Peter's help, but i think they will stick to Hellner as usual.

            Comment


            • I think they will stick with tradition with Hellner in the same way they have always stuck with 11 songs on every album. Was there ever a reason for 11? Richard continued it with both Emigrate albums and you could argue Lindemann did too with the special edition version.

              Comment


              • I don't think they will work with Tägtgren for Rammstein. One of the reasons the solo projects are made and succesfull for them is because they are a totally different thing than Rammstein, so I guess they'll keep Peter out of it all. Plus I don't think he's the man for this kind of job, Rammstein's too big.

                Records cost a band much more money if they last over an hour (for different technical and productional reasons). If every song is 4-5 minutes you're already somewhere past 50 minutes, so that's a perfect place to stop. That might be a reason, although I don't know if it's THE reason.
                And strictly speaking they had more than 11 songs for Lifad, if you include the bonus CD .

                  True but it was an option to sell more copies and the standard version is THE album. The bonus CD were bonus tracks from those sessions. They had a lot of left over songs if you also include Mein Land, Vergis und nicht, gib mir deine augen etc. They had a voting system for the top 11 songs I remember Flake saying. Always 11 hehe

                  Maybe it's something to do with numerology?

                    It's a master number. http://www.numerology.com/numerology...-master-number

                    • I cannot see Rammstein being into that. Maybe it's just that the first cd had 11 numbers on it, and they then decided to keep it that way?

                      Comment


                      • ^Probably. Maybe in the beginning they really wanted to keep the budget down and therefore produce an album without risking the fee of paying extra for a record that's longer than an hour. The lack of more decent material couldn't be the reason because by that time they already had othert decent songs they only released later on. In fact, Sehnsucht seems to be the only album after which they didn't have any leftovers at all.

                        Maybe the fact that 11 is a master number had a part in it, more likely as a joke. It doesn't strike me as a weird idea as numerology really is a big thing in Germany. Despite the fact that not many people actually believe in it, it's wildly spread as an interesting, amusing thing. Maybe they discussed the amount of song and when 11 was on the table they agreed, laughing that it was after all the "master number". Sounds like something Rammstein would do .

                        In general I don't think they put much thougt to it afterwards. They started with 11, so why not continue. It's an acceptable amount and gives the opportunity to still play a big amount of the new songs (which gets harder when you have more). All Rammstein shows are quite coordinated and prepared so that doesn't leave much choice for alterations during the tour. Therefore they can't really choose to play a couple of songs and change the setlist the next day for about 20%.They mainly have to stick to the original setlist, so if you have only 11 new songs, you don't have to leave much out.

                          This made staying awake until 05:00 in the morning worth it!

                          I guess we could asume now that they are rehearsing in Berlin? Maybe even recording there yet?

                          • ^So at least three members in the same room and playing, didn't they post pictures of the same thing back in September 2015.

                            So I'll believe a new CD is underway when i have it in my hands

                            • That clip has made my morning! Thank you!

                              • I also found this on Chad's twitter: https://twitter.com/RHCPchad/status/794656078919307264

                                I can imagine it was Christoph who filmed the clip. So that counts 5 Rammstein members working there.
