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.

    ^Hahaha, I actually didn't notice in any videos that those dancers were them

    Great you loved them! I'm going to miss them in July in Brussels, but hope I can gain tickets for the Ostend sow next year.

    I absolutely enjoyed the show. I like they tried out some different things, had they only put on more and more pyro (and there were plenty) some would have argued they only did the same-same, there's just no pleasing some people. It was fun to se Paul, Schneider, Ollie and Flake as dancers, but I could have lived without that and RZK's remix of Deutschland, for me that was the only 'bad' thing, but it was short. And had they not included Pussy I wouldn't have missed it, but it's a crowd-pleaser. I think they could have used the B-stage for a little longer, but like that five members took the boats back to the main-stage.

    So overall: YES I HAD A GREAT TIME and the people around me had as well.

    Hahahahahaha your reality is the only one that matters, for me Barcelona’s was a great show and I loved it, we are fans not experts, so who cares?

    Enjoy the shows!!!

    Welp, the strangest thing happened last night. I went to the show in Paris, and despite the incessant complaining here about how the tour sucks, I had a blast. No less of an enjoyable time as I've had the other times that I've seen them. Really a great time and a great show.

    So now my reality is torn. On the one hand, I know what I saw and heard last night - and how great it was. But on the other hand....so many self-annointed concert experts here are righteously displeased. I mean, one dude even informed us that his mom said this tour is worse than the others. And if you can't trust some guy's mom on the interest to speak to the quality of a Rammstein concert, who can you trust?

    Sigh. Such confusing times we live in..

    As I said before, the company handling the design of this show is Woodroffe Bassett design, they've got a good catalogue but unfortunately I just don't think their design ideas really work that well with Rammstein who already have quite an established feel. Completely agree that the lack of LeRoy is a part of why the lighting feels off and everything's a bit static, but that's not to say that LeRoy and only LeRoy can pull it off. I just don't think WBD hit the mark, which is a shame as it would be interesting to see how another bunch of designers tackle Rammstein.

The colour for those first few songs all seem white. No variation. I think it's because for a lot of shows it's still day time during that point of the show and white light is easier to see in daylight.

    I love the stage design.. except the lighting (again). I think it would have been perfect if the sides had more of an industrial feel rather than a grid of lights. It doesn't look very Rammstein but the tower is pretty perfect.

    Yeah, from what I have seen the lighting show is indeed somewhat underwhelming. That being said, the lighting show does get changed constantley throughout the tour.

    I think the main problem with this tour when it comes to atmosphere and lighting, comes from the fact that this is the first tour since the Ahoi-tour, were Leroy Benett is not involved in designing the stage and lighting show. He is probably the most prestigous stage designer working right now, and Rammstein owes him a lot.

    Why Bennett did not work on this tour is a mystery. He even said that Rammstein was one of his personal favorites. I guess it might be him taking on less projects as he gets older, or maybe he is not that interested in a outdoor stadium show.

    Either way, I hope the reason for not hiring him isn't something stupid like his hiring costs.

    Don't.

The piano girls as the opening act and the slow opener result in a "cool" audience when the show really starts. However, when the pressure is built up they start playing slower songs again. There's no place in the setlist for the piano girls, was ich liebe, diamant, engel (piano) and ohne dich. And don't get me started on the remix, that was the point my mother turned to me (we went to LIFAD and MiG together) and said "wow, they used to be much better". The album and the stage had lots of potential and in some songs you can see that, but more often than not you can feel that this is a tour of compromises.
    A-fucking-men.

My real problem is with the stage show itself. We've been used to drama, theatre and FIRE on previous tours, and now we are left with lighting effects as the main feature of the show. I had hoped for more.
    Once the actual tour started, I tried staying away from some spoilers. I did not want to know every detail about the tour. So I won't make any big comments about this live show before I see them in Berlin in two weeks.

    The setlist does indeed look awesome, although I am not sure about the order of the songs. They actually still keep changing minor details here and there, so who knows how the show will be when I see them.


    The only big complaint I have in advance, is that according to some spoiler-free reviews I have read, the IMAC screen in the middle of the stage only shows live-footage of the band for 20% of the concert. Most of the time it's just some JPEG's of the Rammstein logo. This is honestly one of these moments I really don't know what the fuck the band is thinking. They are playing at venues that have a capacity for 80 000 spectators like in Berlin or Moscow. The idea that people way back can't see anything the band is doing, despite the fact that there is a screen and a camera-crew, is just mind-blowing.

    Some have cited the "no screen" policy the band had in the past, because Rammstein might be the only big band at this point that doesn't have screens all over their stage. But actually during their North-American concerts and the Prague concert in 2017, the band used their own IMAC screens the entire show. Those venues were much smaller then what the band is playing this year.

    They might change this for the bigger shows of this tour, since it appears the camera crew is actually recording the band during the entire show. I think that means we could get some live-videos on Youtube throughout the tour.

    I loved the Guest artists too, there are things I would remove but I loved the show, I hope they'll come back next year again.
