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.

    True that, some people had been saying how they prefer Lindemann over Emigrate since it's closer to Rammstein's style.
    They do not realize that Richrad never had the intentions of doing so, he wants something different.
    There would have been no point for Richard of doing that, had the project been exactly like Rammstein.
    Lindemann is pretty much an unexpected experimenting album, as Till or Peter said, they recorded one song (Ladyboy).
    Then they saw that the work is going really good without any pressure and all of a sudden they have enough songs to make an album.

      I Was talking about comparing the success the bands got, not the bands, the bands are completely different.


      • #18
        Well you were saying that Richard should not compare his band with Lindemann, and as I interpreted it, the fact that Lindemann's style is closer to Rammstein's.
        Guess I've been mistaken. :P

              Richards = Emigrate, he calls the shots .

              I think indeed he just likes to do some main stream stuff, but having to compromise with 5 other band members isn't easy, especially if creative, experimental brains like Till and Flake divert you from fulfilling your wishes to the full. He did seemed to be very happy in the last tour though, that I must say.

              Lots of speculations here, just because the man sells a guitar .

                I don't think he needs the money, and maybe he just wants to clean house and downsize a little bit. I was drooling over them the other day and my husband looks over my shoulder and says 'Who is Richard Kruspy?' Should I divorce him? lol

                  ^Nah, it's a perfect opportunity for some indoctrination.

                    Believe me, I've tried. He likes punk, so we are not exactly into the same music. He knows who Till is. I think he got tired of me going on an on about Till and Rammstein in general, so I haven't said much about Richard. Even though Richard is my favorite eye candy in the band

                      I have just seen this:

                      "Win a guitar from Richard Kruspe, that he used on tour with Rammstein during the "Mutter" days!"

                      As most of you Rammstein fans know, Richard Kruspe is selling his old equipment. While a lot of guitars have already found new homes, Richard is
                      also thinking about the Rammstein and Emigrate fans who cannot afford such a high value item.

                      So we decided to raffle one of his old Rammstein stage used guitars to all the fans.

                      $ 10 - one entry in the raffle

                      $ 30 - three entries in the raffle

                      $ 50 - five entries in the raffle

                      $ 100 ä 10 entries in the raffle

                      At the end of this campaign, Richard will personally draw the winner from all the entries.

                      Good luck !

                        Yesterday a teaser was released for Hotei's new single Move It, and as you know Richard is in there, the thing that surprised me was the fact that he said:
                        Hey it's me Richard from Emigrate, not even mentioning Rammstein. O_o
                        You can see the teaser on Hotei's official Facebook page:

                          For me that has a double meaning, and I don't find it negative.

                            Maybe he's relying on the fact that everybody knows that he is from Rammstein, so he finds it pointless already stating that?
                            It's too early to start suspecting that he is tired and sick of Rammstein.

                              Probably he just sees this as an opportunity to promote Emigrate a bit, I mean, when you think of Richard singing - you think of Emigrate.

                                Maybe he has quit Rammstein and they didn't announce anything yet. It would explain why he is selling his gear.
