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.

  • But Fruhling and Mann Gegen Mann above Ich Will, Amerika, Links 234?! lol I know it's because it's in Paris but Fruhling just seems a bonus song for every other country.

    The DVD will be great. Just a shame we won't see all songs on the big screen.

      In my opinion, it wouldn't look good if they kept only 2 songs from B-scene in a film, it would be kinda too short

      • They obviously meant to keep in the songs that haven't been shown on DVD (very often). And the show for Sehnsucht, Links 2-3-4 and Ich Will weren't very different from the previous one. I guess they kept Keine Lust because it really fits well in the setlist there, as it is also mix of hard and soft and basically a song that works very good each time. Or maybe they just thought the performance of those classic songs that are left out was a bit less than the rest. Whatever the case, I actually like this cut (I want to see those songs too, but I don't mind they're left out).

          • ^It's pictures like this that make me very interested for the movie. I guess it will have a few suprises.

            I got an E-mail from my local cinema today where I was told that ticketsale will open tomorrow for a lot of cinemas.

                    I know that many felt there was a somewhat mixed reaction from fans after the release of the music video for "Pussy" and "Mein Land", but I felt that "Ich tu dir Weh" and "Mann gegen Mann" were rather well recieved.

                    I will wait until the movie is released before I say anything big about it. As of now, the only thing that has me worried is the darkness of the picture. Both trailers looked VERY dark to the point were some things were not visible. I hope it's just a rendering issue, or maybe an effect only used for the trailer.

                      That actually has always been a sort of negative comment of mine on the MIG tour, at least for the festival part: it was all very dark (when it comes to lighting) in comparisson to other tours. In july last year it was noticable how 'bright' the stage looked, probably because the last time in 2013 was very dark. When you look at the 2013 Werchter report on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5a7QFB-2PDA , you can see that even in this professional report we don't see much of the stage in many cases. I hoped it were better for the previous leg of the tour, but apparently it might not...

                      • They did indeed mess up the appropriate strengh of the lights during the 2013-tour. But if you look at pictures like this:



                        It's not the lighting which is the issue, it's the color-filtering. It could most likely be just a rendering issue, and not something which will affect the final product.

                        However, I assume they worked a lot on fixing the Go-pro footage this movie will have, because it appears they did make some changes to the final cut in the last year. They used state-of-the-art cameras to film this movie. Cameras which are still used for Hollywood-productions. However the Go-pro HERO 2 from 2011 does have a lot lower resolution and struggles to work in low light compared to the newer ones.

                        • I studied video production a few years back. My memory is a little rough but with cameras you have F-stop settings which affects the depth of field in pictures/video and the amount of light entering the lens.

                          It does look a little dark to me in places but at the same time there's some well lit stuff too like the shot of Till's sparks in Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen. Perhaps they turned down the f-stop in order to capture the pyro. I guess we'll see!

                          The same could be said for the footage from 2001 in Berlin. I really liked that footage though.

                          • F-stop works in "opposite direction" the smaller the f-number the more light and the smaller depth of field. The higher the f-number the longer depth of field but less light. So it's always a balancing act of what you want and the priorities for your shoot.

                            • Has anyone here watched Metallica: Through The Never? The concert part from that film is what I think Rammstein: Paris will be: a concert film looking like it's from "actual" Hollywood film, and I would really like that approach - Rammstein's concert like a rock opera.

                              Comment


                              • ^I haven't seen the entire film, only parts of it. Like this music video:


                                However "Metallica: Through The Never" was a bit ambitious. It tried to be a concert film mixed with being a movie narrative, which also made it an 2 hour music video in some ways. The production quality of the concert footage is phenomenal. I think they are the only metal-band to this day which has made Rammstein jealous of their concert film.

                                Åkerlund did say he would use "every trick in the book" and according to the description it is a "a radical new approach" to making a concert-movie. Having that in mind, I don't think that it has the same "documentary"-type style of a concert film in which the purpose of the movie is to only show a good recording of the band playing their show, sometimes at a particular venue which people find special. "Völkerball" is a good example of that. Åkerlund is trying to make an entertaining film which is supposed to give you the same feeling and experience (empthasis on those words) as beeing in a Rammstein concert.

                                Knowing how they are self-aware of this, I am not going to be as critical of dubbing and incoherent editing, because this time they are beeing very clear about their intentions.
