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.

    Price: EUR 16.99

    Short description (translated by google)

    Release date: 2 October 2013

    Poems by Till Lindemann, the singer of the band "Rammstein" Till Lindemann is known primarily as a singer (and writer) of the band "Rammstein". Less well known is that he matter for over 20 years, writes poetry - poetry, although some of them have become songs, but as poems have their very own life. Most amazing sound this coming so often almost casually, but rhythmically and musically while carefully constructed texts in which a cryptic, irritable, vulnerable lyrical I in an intimate dialogue occurs with the reader. As the editor writes Alexander Gorkov - - including poems that are "sound like on cold nights scraped from the ice," but even those with nostalgia, longing and intimacy of feeling. Despite the contemporary sound to provide immediate associations with the poetry of German Romanticism and Expressionism one, also to Gottfried Benn and Bertolt Brecht. The themes revolve around the abyss of existence, the hunger of desire, the body, the pain, the pleasure, the comedy and tragedy of communication, loneliness and violence. Edited and with an introduction by Alexander Gorkov, the band, the reporter received the German award for his great report on the U.S. tour of "Rammstein" the magazine of the Süddeutsche Zeitung, 2012. The strip is in addition to the poems as illustrations of a series of black and white drawings by the artist Matthias Matthies.

    So this is how Till spent his time off
    "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."

          Entstehung der Gezeiten

          Es war dereinst ein Fischermann
          der warf sein Herz zur See
          Das Wasser gab es nicht zurück
          die Brust am Fischer weh
          da hat er grimm die Nacht entsternt
          und alle Wasser bald entfernt
          die Woge trieb nun blind von Land
          die Ströme hilflos durcheinand
          die Fluten weinten sich in Wahn
          das Wasser so zum Salze kam
          ein Sternlein fiel dem Fischer fort
          und lebt als Uferfeuer dort
          bei den verirrten Herzen

                    Today posted about the book, The news: it will be available in the Rammstein Shop (16.99€), and the preview of three illustrations by Mathias Mathies.

                    “In stillen Nächten” includes poems that, according to the book’s introduction, “sound like they were scraped from the ice on cold nights,” as well as others filled with nostalgia, longing and a sense of intimacy.

                    The book features illustrations by artist and photographer Matthias Matthies.

                    And here is the link to Rammsteinshop:

                              The postman was just here. A lovely little book (size-wise) Fits perfectly in a bag so I can carry it with me and have a little read at intervals during the day. It will probably take me some time to get through, but I'm sure my German will improve along the way. Just now I read two of the shorter poems. Rather whimsical
                              And the illustrations by Matthias Matthies great, reminds me a little bit of some African sculptures I bought this Summer on a street market in Delft ;-)
