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.

                  I took the time to learn the vast majority of there songs on guitar and I figured out they use a pattern and that pattern is used for actually a large number of their songs. The pattern is like this: for example.. Buck dich, the notes on guitar are d,f,e and g with the d# played for the breakdown and end but i dont count that in the pattern. The pattern in buck dich is like d,e,f,g and it can apply to anywhere on the guitar neck, If you have a guitar you'll know what i mean XD that pattern is used in a ton of there songs like Buck dich, Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen, Tier, Mein teil etc.. granted its not used on every song but its widely used on Herzeleid and Sehnsucht, and some songs on there later albums too! Ive been trying it write my own riffs from it but im not as creative as Paul or Richard :3 some here try it and let me know how you get on ! Ill try to get a picture to show the pattern haha
                  Must of the frame where Rammsteinn throw their chords and riffs is a very typical hard and speedy rock style.

                  If you take your guitar and lower the tune of the 6th string from E to D, and here you got drop D tune: D,A,D,G,B,E. Surely you know that, but perhaps others don't. This is a simple way of imitating the style of bands like White Zombie and Marilyn Manson, over all. "The beautiful people" of Marylin Manson, is quite close in guitar style to Rammstein's music, and with the drop D tuning is as simple as...:

                  D---0--3-0------0--6--0--6--0----0--6--0--6--0---Play this 4x-----

                  Then, it is the tempo. tum tum/ tumtumtum tum/ tum tum/ tumtumtum tum... and you are playing Ich tu dir weh

                  Keep it simple, it is how it is!. Pentatonic and major scales do half of your work. Major chords for power songs, minor chords for the most intense songs (Seemann). The rest, you will work it out. But this is a very short way of getting their style in simple ten minutes.

                  Record some music, and then we discuss it!
