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.

    Î can't decide wether "Rammstein" would be a better or worse title than "LIFAD".

    ^That sometimes happens. The "Sonne"-video was released on January 29th and the single came out February 12th.

    I find the April 12th date for the single kind of weird. I don't think they've released a video almost 2 weeks a head of the single before? I assumed with the Thursday premiere we would get the song on Spotify/download etc the following day (Friday) when new music is released by labels. I guess it depends how many physical formats will be available. However May 17th sounds right for the album. EXCITED.

    A bit of additional news:

    There was a small leak on Amazon 20 minutes before the release of this teaser. Some trustworthy people on RammsteinAustria took screenshots.
    Here is what they found out:

    - The new album will be released on May 17th. Current title is "Rammstein".
    - The single for "Deutschland" will be out on April 12th, on all formats (CD, Vinyl, digital and streaming)

    Like Snake has pointed out before, these "leaks" might just be a marketing strategy. Some say that the album title "Rammstein" might be just a placeholder or a mistake by Amazon. However, since the title "Deutschland" was 100% correct, it would be weird if the only got the title wrong.

    Reportedly called 'Deutschland'. People are saying the leaked cover is fake. We'll find out Thursday. Thoughts?

    So according to the director of the new Emigrate video, the Rammstein video was not pushed back due to Emigrate but rather the Emigrate video was released now as things with Rammstein are coming soon..

    Oh my mistake! We must be weeks away from some kind of announcement surely? We've waited the better part of 10 years for a follow up to LIFAD so I guess a few weeks more won't hurt

    It's from the hashtag when they posted stills from one of the videoshoots.

    It appears to be fake. The image was taken from a promotional poster for TV show American Horror Story Asylum (good season on another note). I was skeptical as soon as I saw "Du Hast" in the title. I know the overall meaning is different but I just can't imagine them having another song with Du Hast in the title.

    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.

    ^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)
