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.

    There is so much contradiction happening in these interviews, it's hard to say what's really true at the moment. In this case, let's not forget that in february there was this other French interview with Lindemann that hasn't been released yet. Like I said earlier, these interviews could have been made earlier this year, but are released now with the release of Skills in Pills getting closer.

    The reason I might be a little overoptimistic about this tour, is that I hold Flake's words above anyone else's. The statements he made are less than a month old, and there is a rather large amount of people saying they heard him "announce" the tour. With the interviews, you never really know when they were made since a lot of these magazines only have monthly issues.

    Anyway, by Monday afternoon we will all be hopefully enlightened.

        As long as they tour somewhere in the US where I can get to in order to see them, I don't much care when the tour is. But I would be pretty upset to only ever have the chance to see them once...

          If only Flake wouldn't have crashed into Till with his segway and injured his knee back in Sweden in 2005, they would have continued their plans to tour in South America and Asia for a while. After that, they also wanted to tour in North America somewhere in 2006 or 2007 during their "Rosenrot"-tour together with Marilyn Manson. Unfourtunately Flake had problems with his ear, and Richard started to work on Emigrate, so that never happened. But as you see, Rammstein try to tour in the states whenever possible. If they would have come to the states during their canceled 2006 tour, they would on average tour every 2-4 years in the states.

          Since this tour has a smaller show, they could become more mobile and do another US tour. Probably not as big as their 2012 tour. However they could also just keep it in Europe this time around. You could do a weekend trip to go and see them in some European city you always wanted to visit . Anyway, if this tour isn't happening however, we will probably not see them live until the end of this decade . Unless of course they delay this tour and do it in 2017 instead .

            Posting from phone since one of the kids is playing minecraft on my laptop and one has the tablet. Saw them in 2012, which was amazing! They actually came here which was perfect!

            Trust me me if there was a snowball's chance in hell that I could travel to Europe ever I'd be there in a heartbeat

              A little update. It turns out that the Monday issue of Süddeutsche Zeitung is going to be a 25 anniversary issue including many "Best of" stories. There is going to be a small segment about Rammstein, but it's more of a look back to the 2012 US tour and the big article that was written for it. However the segment is also supposed to include some newer interviews from the band. Anyway, we will see what's coming on Monday.

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."

                            If they play Canada I'm in luck as my adopted sister lives in Ottawa, we haven't seen each other in forever and she's a R+ fan as well. I'm going to start saving my pennies now 'cause I know tickets for the show(s) are going to be uber-expensive and will sell out like mad.
                            Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket?

                              I so hope a 2016 tour happens (2015 is off the table, I'm sure). With a little bit of luck I'll see Till twice in one year.
