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.

  • Till Lindemann for nu.nl

    The original text: http://www.nu.nl/boek/3753570/moeder...gedichten.html

    Translation by Rammstein Netherlands

    The mother of Rammstein singer understands his 'dirty' poems

    Rammstein singer Till Lindemann is not afraid that his mother maybe will interpret his sometimes 'dirty' lyrics and poems in the wrong way. ''My mother is culturally well versed. She knows how to read something like that'', he says in a conversation with nu.nl.

    Lindemann is since 1994 the singer of the German band Rammstein. Until now, the band published nine albums and sells out worldwide full venues. From Argentina to Tokyo are the fans screaming the lyrics together with Lindemann.

    The lyrics are about deformity, forced sex and obedience, but also about the sun, about love and about mothers. On stage sings Lindemann the lyrics as member of a halfnaked, muscled band, covered in military clothes.

    The 51-year German also wrote two poem books. His last one, In Stille Nachten, is recently translated in Dutch at publishing compagny Lebowski. ''I expected that America or Spain would translate my poem book as first. But it was the Netherlands. That's awesome.''

    Odes
    The sentences in the poems of Lindemann have a lot of similarities with the songs he sings for Rammstein. Violent sexdrive, but also odes to his loved ones and family members. Does there excist a difference between the poet and the singer Lindemann?
    ''The writing for the band always has to be documented according a tight scheduale, so it becomes a workable song. The band gives me the industrial version of the song and I have to make up a song on that version. It can't be too long and not be too short and it also has to be a logic overall. It is a nightmare'', says Lindemann. ''The singer is married with the band, you cannot take that one serious. It is a complete different person. The poet is private, that one is totally focussed on itself. Writing poems liberates, it just floats out of me''.

    Therapy
    In Still Nachten has Lindemann dealed with everything where he has been confrontated with the last ten years. ''When i hold this book in my hands, close it and put it away, then I put with that all my fears and devilish shit away. The fysical putting away from something works liberating. It is no therapy, more my little box of Pandora'', according to Lindemann. ''It has become a small artwork. I also gave it to the bandmembers and said: ''kiss my ass, now you go make some music on my texts. Find out yourselfs'.

    Oral sex
    In Stille Nachten does of course not only excist of vulgar, bloodthirsty or humiliating texts, but they do stand out. Lindemann tells in rhyme form about his strive for oral sex with a cutt off head. The mother of Lindemann, journalist Gitta Lindemann, keeps a critical eye on the work of her son. Wat is her opinion about such lines? ''My mother is culturally well versed. She knows how to read something like that'', answers Lindemann. ''I would be upset if she would tell me: ''What is this for filthyness?''.
    ''In my previous poem book Messer there is also a poem about her mother, my grandmother. It is a very dirty poem. It is about fucking your own grandmother. That sounds idiot and sick. But the point is, that if you love your grandmother so much, you even can have sex with her. If it really has to'', continues Lindemann.
    ''My mother read it and she understood it! She didnt say: 'boy, you really have to go to a madhouse'. My mother understood the poem and is not ashamed of it. That is enough for me.

    The use of heavy themes has according to Lindemann an important function. '' The poems has to fuck, fuck until the doctor comes. Sex, knifes, blood and dirtyness. So that the reader who appreciates that thinks: 'Yes, come one, harder!'. And exactly after that moment follows a sensitive poem and brings the sensibility into it. I witnessed that with Rammstein often. That in the front row very big motorbikers stand, and that they suddenly start to cry when we play a sensitive song. If that works, you have done something well.

    'It has become a small artwork. I also gave it to the bandmembers and said: ''kiss my ass, now you go make some music on my texts. Find out yourselfs'.

    That's the interesting part. This basically means Till will use the poems as lyrics for the new album (somehow) and the band will write music to it in the near future? I thought they didn't start writing music yet.

      I hope they start with the new material at the end of this year, but now except for Richard with Emigrate, there are no news.

        Probably nothing has started in the Rammstein camp so far, but there could always be material left (the Lifad recording time seemed to be very very productive) and Till always seems to have tons of great texts up his sleeve. However, I don't believe anything significant will happen before 2016, when it comes to a new record. I sincerily hope they offer us a DVD in the meanwhile or something. It's been long since they talked about that, which doesn't seem a good sign to me.

          ^Rumor has it the DVD was supposed to be announced past December, but they decided that it was not ready yet.
          "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."

            Not sure why it wouldn't be ready yet.. The material should be more than a year old, the lifad gig (if ever to be shown) even several years... It came to the point now where even Guns N' Roses is quicker with turning a gig into a Live DVD (1st of july a 2013 show will be released). I hope it's because there's more to it than we think.
            But in the end the band owes us nothing and we can't demand anything from them.. just hoping they would keep the machine rolling or otherwise shurrup us with some other releases .

              ^My educated guess would be, yep, there is/was more to it than we think.

                It could be problems with the documentary part, not the concert footage? I had hoped it would've been out for their anniversary in April, now I hope for a Christmas release

                  Of course it's maybe hard to complain as it's not even a year since they've ended almost 4 years on the road, backed up with an album, a best of and several clips and singles. But I' like it if they'd try to give us at least one thing each year... And I don't count Till's poetry as a Rammstein project . Although when prices drop, I might give it a go (always been a fan of Till, german ŕnd poetry + I liked the poems that made it to the internet so why not?).
