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.

    The original source for Pinkpop is this: http://festileaks.com/2015/10/zegut-...-pinkpop-2016/
    "Which is better, eternal happiness or a ham sandwich? It would appear that eternal happiness is better, but this is really not so! 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."

      It also claims the new cd will be ready then. If so, that is unusually quick work. We can only hope. But at another link from festileaks it says 2017. http://festileaks.com/2015/10/rammst...in-zomer-2016/

        If you sum up the rumors surrounding this festival tour (Flake's comments, RammsteinWorld, Francis Zegut's "insider knowledge"), the tour simply doesn't sound that unlikely anymore to me. That being said, it's the fact that much information only comes from Zegut, which makes me doubt a little.

        That being said, tonight we might finally find out if it's true or not. Today at 20:00 (08:00 PM) Western European Time more headliners for the Download festival are being announced. Zegut already guessed Iron Maiden right, so keep your fingers crossed...

        You can keep a look out for the next Download festival announcments here.

          Precisely.

            There's bound to be just TONS of rumor and speculation about timelines now that they're back in studio. But for the touring season next year? That seems to me like only old stuff if anything. I'd be incredibly surprised if they come out with an album by then. A few months only? The only way that'd work is if they pretty much already have most of it done and just need to fine tune it....

            I could see them touring with old stuff again, but then why go back into studio first? Why not just be rehearsing their old stuff?

            Besides, as awesome as them touring again would be, they will not likely be coming to the US next year, so I will miss it all

            I will keep my hopes up for completely new material.

              ^IF they play new material in 2016, it will probably be just one song, like they did with links in 2000 and Benzin in 2005.

                ^ I'd really rather a whole new album, but I guess I'll take whatever they give us at this point.

                Hmm. One new song would be feasible. I wonder if they complete and rehearse one new song as well as old stuff...and then tour the festival season...will they then return to the studio and make a whole album....and then possibly world tour and then retirement?

                  ^It's not unusual for bands to tour during different production stages of an album. In this case, I believe the tour will probably only last 2-3 months. Rammstein did tour A LOT between production stages in the old days. Good examples for this are Sehnsucht and Rosenrot but also Mutter like Snake mentioned (they played a few shows before the record was complete).

                  That being said, I think this tour will be the final leg of the "Made in Germany"-tour, and the final time the LIFAD-stage will be used. I think for the next album, they will probably change their stage and show a lot, like they usually do. They will then probably only play old stuff, and being Rammstein they got a HUGE selection of songs that are considered populare which they haven't played in the last couple of years:

                  "Reise, Reise", "Rammstein", "Weißes Fleisch", "Heirate Mich", "Bestrafe Mich", "Waidmanns Heil" (has been abondend since the LIFAD tour), "Rosenrot" (only played once during a LIFAD-tour rehearsel) etc.

                    Maybe they will "promote" their new vinyl collection with a small tour, and play some new (old) material.

                      If they are actually going to play at those festivals, I REALLY hope they are going to sing something different than what they have sung, songs from Rosenrot and Reise Reise, and some unplayed songs from LIFAD and Sehnsucht.

                        If they'll play the summer festivals, I don't think there will be too much surprises when it comes to setlists.

                          ^I agree, it will be more or less the same. I wonder if in some way the purpose is getting money for the new album tour (festivals and new releases).

                            ^Could be. They've mentioned before that it's insanely expensive to tour...

                              ^I think making some money for the 7th album and it's tour, could indeed be one of the reasons. This tour might be less expensive, due to the fact that I doubt they will make a new stage. In that case they will probably use all their post-Ahoi tour equipment which they have used for the last couple of years.

                              Seeing them rework their live show completely for their 7th album in 2017/2018 would be really exciting to see.
