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.

    I remember the Puin-incident. I also think he'll have Richard's statement count as coming from the whole band. Unfortunately. As you said, it would have been stronger in Russia a least, had it come from him.

    A few years ago Sputnik News photoshopped a picture of Putin on his t-shirt, and attributed political quotes to him about how Russia is getting unfairly treated by the western powers. Till later went to the german press to debunk this whole story. I remember him saying in those interviews that he will never do any political commentary.

    Furthermore, he very rarely does interviews. So chances are we will not get a response. However, he could have a change of heart and speak out. The unkown variable for me, is the fact that he has a social media account. So he can choose when and how to comment.

    Richard has made a statement regarding the inprisonment of Andrej Borowikow. Borowikow published the Pussy-music video on a social media site, causing him to get arrested for distributing pornography in Ruissa. He is a close ally to opposition-leader Alexej Nawalny, which causes many to believe this was a political move by the Putin-government.

    Here is a link to his statement: https://www.instagram.com/p/COQ-vsfHxaH/

    This sounds very good and promising indeed. I don't think the band would've done another record without the pandemic (although Till mentioned many leftovers, but I always thought it was more to downplay the thought of a last round - a thought awakened by Richard).

    Sven Helbig has uploaded a photo on Instagram showing him working on the new Rammstein-record. Helbig is a composer and has been working with Rammstein since the "Reise, Reise"-album. He usually adds additional arrangments like orchestra, choir, additional singers etc. to the songs.

    I guess we can assume that means that album nr. 8 is already approaching post-production. A late 2021 release really does not seem unlikely anymore.

    It's definintely an unprecedented thing, so we can't know yet - nor do they. A lot will depend indeed on how the summer works out. They might still cancel the entire thing and pay everyone back, but it might be wise to combine it with the option to attend another planned gig instead. It's a pickle they wouldn't have if tickets weren't sold yet; then they would just cancel the plans and focus on new album and new tour.
    Anyway, the option of having a 1) new album - 2) tour from the previous album - 3) tour from the latest album seems weird as well.

    Some german festivals are already confirmed as being Coronaproof (e.g. outside, with less attendants than usual) and therefore 90% sure to go through (like the Strandkorb-festivals), but not the big ones. But who knows. In Belgium, vaccination goes very slow at the moment, so it's not very promising.

    I think they'll try to postpone the tour, and not for album nr 8, they will lost money that way. But I want to be wrong

    Really depends on a lot of things. They have some post production left to do (mixing, mastering etc.) and they still are schedueled to play concerts this summer. At this point I am pretty sure the entire tour cannot take place, even the North America leg. So the big question is if it will be postponed to 2022 or cancelled. There was an article a few weeks ago where the promoter for the show in Norway said he was sceptical about the 2021 tour, and there was already dialogue with the Rammstein managment to postpone the show in Norway once again.

    Either way, I think a late 2021 release for album nr. 8 seems plausible. In case the tour gets succesfully postponed, the 2022 tour will probably promote album nr. 8.

    During the lockdown, many had more than enough time for this self-reflection. Among these many is the band Rammstein, whose keyboardist Flake reports:

    “The fact that we couldn't perform live increased our creativity. We had more time to think of new things and less distraction. As a result, we recorded a record that we hadn't planned on. "

    Rammstein had recorded the record in relative normality analogously in September in France.

    Never thought indeed there would be an 8th album. Could be just an EP though, but Rosenrot history encourages us to believe they'll try to pull a full album. Besides, Till claims they have enough tracks for another record, which wasn't the case with Rosenrot. Maybe it'll be a black album?

    It seems highly doubtful to have something still in 2021 (with the majority of the last tour still to go), but on the other hand, the peeps from rammsteinworld do have a tremendous amount of intell and resources... I guess they'll bring out at least something this year.
