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.

  • Well, it will be a Pussy 2.0 in the sense that they hired Åkerlund to make the first music video for their newest album, and the reason they hired Åkerlund is because he works fast and usually comes up with a pretty memorable concept.

    That being said, I think the release of this music video is just around the corner. If they already tease it now, I am guessing they aim for it to be released in 1-2 weeks.

    Despite the fact that many seem to dislike Åkerlund, the more mainstream audience seems to love his work. In addition, whatever you think of him, he sure as hell makes the more memorable videos in Rammstein's discography.


    • ^That is great for the mainstream audiences, but for me this is just yet another nail in the coffin for my enthusiasm.

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 am not sure I ‘d like this video. They could offend many people


        • I'm slightly surprised they're working with Åkerlund again. They didn't seem very happy with the result of Paris.

          As for which will be the first release and when, they have shot 2-3 videos in a row, I think we'll might have to wait a bit longer, as the album is not done yet. Earlier Åkerlund have shot videos for albums already released. I'm not holding my breath


          • There is a lot of fuzz on social media regarding a supposed single called "Hare Krishna". This is due to a couple of 10 second leaks from a song featuring lyrics from Till's poem "Hare Krishna" that have surfaced on Youtube. There are also some pictures of the single being "unlisted" on iTunes. In addition, the Rammsteinshop has currently removed their "media"-section (CD's, DVD's, Blu-rays, LP's etc.) from the website. Some think that this means the new Single is a couple of days away from release.

            This could all be bullshit of course. The only facts are that Rammstein shot a video 16 days ago and the media-section of the Rammsteinshop is gone. However, the leaks seem genuine, Till's voice can be heard quite clearly.

            EDIT: All of this is complete bullshit. A Russian band made a fake Rammstein song and uploaded snippets online to make it look like leaks. In addition they removed some of the snippets in order to make it look like they were being removed.

              FAKE: The song "Hare Krishna" is made by AtoW, an industrial band from Russia. AtoW is releasing the full song tomorrow because "the joke has gone too far".
              The music looks a lot like a Rammstein song, but it's not.
              Also the lyrics of "Hare Krishna" come from a poem with the same name, that comes from Till's poem book "In Stillen Nächten".

              Please note, this is NOT a song from Rammstein.




              • Last week, Rammstein posted some more pictures from their videoshoots:



                According to Rammwiki, specterberlin ( was the productioncompany for this shoot. So this may be the third Rammstein video after the one from Åkerlund and Heitmann.

                • promo:


                  • ^For some reason I suspect this is fake. It is not hard for a musician to recreate Ramm4 and put it up on youtube with already released photos.

                    • You could be rigt ;-)


                      • It's not official. It's just a fanmade instrumental cover of Ramm4 with all the promo pictures that have been released.


                        • The director of one of the new music video's released a picture on his instagram. The comment reads: "
                          It’s coming! Unleash the Beast! ". It appears that this is the music video from which a couple of pictures were released two weeks ago.



                          • A lot of people on facebook were saying the first video was meant to be released Friday just gone but I have no idea where they got that from. At this point I think people are just making stuff up

                            Also that the album is delayed. Either way it does seem odd there hasn't been an announcement with the tour 2 months away. Surely the aim is to get the album released before the tour starts? I'd argue we'll get a video at the end of the month with a mid-May release now.

                            • ^You're right. A lot of wishful thinking, seems to be presented as facts.
                              The tour was announced with very short notice before the ticket sale started, so maybe they'll surprise us with a very short notice af the album before it goes on sale (my wishful thinking)


                              • Well, it seems that their marketing strategy works perfectly. People are talking about them, about the new album, all kind of theories and wishful thinkings are expressed, yet they don't even communicate to much. Like it or not, it really works, and the hype is more present than ever. Until we get some reliable/official news, the tension will increase. But I have a feeling that this is the calm before the storm.
