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.

  • Recently Flake had a small tour promoting his book. In Schwerin he was asked a few questions about the new album and he said that they will start recording in february, release it in autumn and the next tour will be in 2019.


    • ^Thank you. From interviews when Paris came out, I thought they were further along.


      • Thank you very much for the information. Is there a source We can use for sharing?


        • I saw this info on Rammstein Belgium via facebook


          • "On the sidelines of the Schweriner Reading on November 16, 2017 Flake said that they will go to the studio in February 2018 to record and produce the new album. The album will be released, but in the fall. And the next tour should even start in 2019." - Rammstein Belgium/facebook, 23.11.2017 So, this means the songs are pretty much ready, the need to be recorded and mixed and it is done. My predition is that we will have a single in august or september and the album will be released in october.


            • "Bei einer kürzlichen Sitzung der Lektüre seines Buches „Der Tastenficker“, sagte Flake, dass Rammstein ins Studio im Februar 2018. Die Möglichkeit, zurück zu uns, Bilanz zu ziehen. Das Album befindet sich derzeit in der Vorproduktionsphase: Rammsteins Mitglieder spielen zusammen, finden Ideen und nehmen Demos informell auf. Das Ziel ist es, eine ausreichende Anzahl von Demos fertigzustellen und das Studio zu betreten, um es richtig aufzunehmen und dann zu mischen. Laut Flake wird das Studio im Februar 2018 stattfinden. Während dieser Vorproduktionsphase berief Rammstein mehrere Produzenten ein, um Jacob Hellner zu ersetzen, um ihren Sound zu verstärken. Der einzige Name, der gefiltert wurde, ist Sky Van Hoff, mit dem Paul und Richard ihren Gitarrensound getestet haben. Daher die damaligen Studio-Fotos (siehe News). Sei vorsichtig, das heißt nicht, dass Sky Van Hoff der Produzent des nächsten Albums sein wird. Rammstein hätte sehr wohl eine andere Person wählen können. Wie auch immer, laut Flake wird das Album Ende 2018 erwartet, mit einer Tournee im Jahr 2019. Vivement!" - Source: RammsteinWorld, original in french


              • I'm sorry, I missed these posts. Thank you very much for the information.


                • Well I suppose it is still progress. But the WAITING is just painful at this point.


                  • ^I am not even waiting anymore.
                    "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."

                      I cannot say I am either, but whenever i see a picture of one of them out and about doing stuff (well that's mostly Till) I cannot stop a quick "why aren't they in the studio" crossing my mind.9-10 years between alums is a bit steep, and no matter what RZK says, I'm sure it'll be the last, unless they record so much they have two albums ready at the same time.Not the I find that likely.

                        Yeah I don’t think there’s any question that if we get one (still a pretty enormous if) whatever we finally get will be the last one.


                        • I don't doubt there will be a next album, never did. I just hope there won't be any material left behind, that gets lost somehow. They should bring everything out, even the demos they didn't use; a bit like Nirvana did with their With The Lights Out. There was some amazing stuff on there, and I'm sure Rammstein have lots of things up their sleeve and in the vaults.
                          Dort wo der Horizont
                          Sich mit dem Meer verbindet
                          Dort wollt' ich auf dich warten
                          Auf das du mich dort findest


                          • So, Flake said that they will resume workig in february. This month is nearly over, and that means in a week they will be back in the studio. We might get some small hints, teasing, instagram updates, litte updates in interviews etc. It is also possible that everything could be kept secret until the first single is announced - a period wich is often called the silence before the storm. Others sugested that the first sign is when they announce the tourdates. I'm guessing that the first single will arrive in october/november and the album in december (because december is one of the best months in terms of marketing/sales strategy).


                            • I Hope this year will be the one, I’ll be happy if we have a release date at the end of it.


                              • How long have they been 'making' this album now?
