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.

    For them, yes. They put on a very expensive stage show, and the cost alone to have it moved from city to city must be crippling. Most bands tour to make money from fees and merchandise, as CD sales have dwindled over the years. But R+ must make some or they couldn't keep it up

      ^They sometimes joke that they have to tour a lot to make money, because the cost to set up and transport their huge show is expensive enough. According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung article, one show from their 2011-2012 "Made in Germany"-tour cost 250 000 euros pr. night.

      Keeping it in Europe might help to keep it less expensive. Furthermore, according to Flake's comments, the show would be slightly watered down. If that's true, I believe the shows will be like the ones in South America in 2010. Roughly the same amount of pyro, but smaller stage and a lot less big and heavy lighting gear.

        Probably for the new album there will be a worldwide tour, so they'll need a lot of money.

                  I think it's sad when such big legendary bands finally quit. They can't really go on forever, so I guess it only makes sense that one day they have to end it. Admitedly I was never a big fan of them, however catching them on their final tour would be great.

                    The latest of Black Sabbath's "final" tours. They're getting to be like the fucking Rolling Stones for final tours.
                    The last time I saw Sabbath was in 1978 and they were old hat then. The first time I met Ozzy was when I was 13 and he was just a piss head (drunk) in those days, and he was trying to persuade myself and my friend to go and have a drink with him in the Station Hotel pub in Kings Heath (where they had a rehearsal studio and also where I went to school) in Birmingham. The problem was that a great number of my teachers drank in that pub (it was the 70's folks), and also we were in school uniform! He was such a nice guy but always off his head.
