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.

      This was posted 5 minutes ago on Emigrate's Facebook page, the page which has been Silent for So Long.

      Hello my friends,
      I just want to tell you I have finished my first collaboration as a guest singer with Hotei. I am very honored to be a part of it and we just shot the video for the song, 'Move it'. I'll keep you posted on the video release. I wish you all a beautiful day and apologize for being silent so long .
      Much love, Richard Z.K.

      He has finally finished working with Hotei, I wonder what is he going to do now, going back to Rammstein? Or continue working on Emigrate?

        Since they are already working on new R+ material and going on tour, I guess it's a very safe bet that that is what he is going on with.

          It's almost as if he read our comments here these last days ...

            ^It might just be what he needs to pull is head out of his ass.

            Also, I find it curious he makes no mention to the 3rd E-album.

            "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."

              I think it's safe to say the 3rd Emigrate album has been delayed for now. At first it sounded like it would be released last year. The band were recording in April and mentioned a possible September release date. Even Till mentioned about mixing the album in one of his Lindemann interviews.

              With Rammstein writing, touring and recording now, I don't think we will get this Emigrate album for a few years. At which time Richard might even change his mind about it seeing as half the songs are SSL left overs.

                ^It seems indeed like he has to get silent so long again before releasing SSL II. Maybe, and hopefully, he'll take the time after Rammstein to work out some already made songs, make them deeper, maybe more epic. I liked SSL, but it would've been better if it sometimes had more depth, if there were more epic parts, instrumental and lyricwise. In the end Emigrate so far released relatively short albums with not much "special" to the songs, with a big "what you see is what you get"-aspect. There are not to many layers to the songs, which leaves out a bit the thrill of sometimes discovering something new in those songs. It's not a must, but it could make it all better.

                Maybe he postponed the release for the money and record deal. He might need the upcoming Rammstein stuff first as a carrot (for the label and/or audience) to release the next Emigrate material. All again speculation of course.

                  Hotei mentions in new interview how collaboration with Richard came about:

                  And with Richard, we were connected through our label, then had a skype meeting, shared files via internet—that’s how ‘Move It’ was born. Richard is an amazing and respectful guy. Not every collaboration goes smooth as I’ve experienced for this album. Each moment was so memorable and there’s a sense of ‘destiny’ connection. It was so exciting.
