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.

  • interviews Richard Kruspe

    Does somebody understand this???

    Google Translator (is better than nothing)

    Europe is another group which is divided audience, as the Germans Rammstein. For some, they are - creating a macabre black humor plays geniuses, others - goes far beyond the perverts. On February 6th the Germans once again on the third exhibit their art in Lithuania. Upcoming events - an interview with guitarist Richard Kruspe, who not only talks about music, but also denies the myth of the group and share aršumą fear for the future of the world.

    Richard starts atsiprašinėjimais interview that it had to be postponed for several days.

    The reason - the disease. Several Rammstein musicians colds, infected others, and now cough half a hundred of people forming a group tour of the team. However, the musicians do not hinder performances.

    No wonder - electronics seasoned metal group playing for nearly two decades, has "kietuolių's reputation. Lindemann Tillis singer singing on stage at times his head praskelia microphone. Runny nose will not stop them.

    Does not suspend and moralizer a trailer with Rammstein receive every new video or song. Sadomasochism elements, fire bursts, aggressive sound, provocative themes of man-eater, incest and child torturers - the group does not show doruoliams, three times a day to speak a prayer.

    This is a spectacle, and no more - say "Rammstein", is sykius two concerts in Vilnius. This time, Kaunas Zalgiris arena, they will present the best songs of the program, and įamžintą compilation album "Made in Germany 1995-2011."

    Before the journey 44-year old R. Kruspe of Lithuania in the morning readers of openness captured the musician admitted that the earlier appearance of Lithuania would like to unlearn.

    - In Lithuania, staying temporarily in the third again. Of the previous concerts in Vilnius you remember anything? - I asked Richard.

    - I remember very well a few years ago, a concert held in Vilnius. It was the only time during Rammstein's history, when just lost me to cancel the appearance. Food poisoning and vomiting every ten minutes. I stood on stage and I thought - I can not, can not handle.

    Among the more flexible about the songs from the stage where I am waiting for a bucket and a towel. Something terrible has never nesijutau so bad in my entire life. Somehow this show through. Then, trembling, I returned to the hotel, drank and fall of sleeping in bed. Vilnius and is not inspected.

    - When a few weeks ago at the Berlin stage was the mausoleum of your masks, candles and condolence book, a lot of what is understood as a hint of the impending end of your group.

    - This is - more of our compilation album "Made in Germany 1995-2011," which is now present, advertising campaign. But we like the audience in the action he sees all kinds of things.

    But what may happen tomorrow. After the tour we have no plans, but we are not firmly tell yourself - everything, period. But - we understand that currently show the best show what we have created.

    It is very difficult to answer. You know, I play on this team for 20 years, it has - in my life. And it is obvious that we reached the peak, the highest popularity, as expected. More willing to German singing group is no longer possible. So my questions are visited - What to do when the group will not have any way to turn your life? Does this mean that "Rammstein" was coming to an end? No. But not knowing how it will look tomorrow.

    - And what will you do when it all end? You could work a carpenter or open a restaurant?

    - The restaurant is not really (laughs). Although, by the way, good question, I am a chef who worked for three years. There are a lot of work, I want to do. For example, build the house with his hands - will start next year. Music - that's not the only way to create.

    I want to write a book become a music producer - I never did. The biggest professional dream - to create music for the film.

    In addition, six weeks before my daughter was born, so I want to be a good dad.

    - Are you ready to reveal the details that appear on your show?

    - Trying to reconcile its impressive number of the concerts that are staged in the past and complement them with innovation. I do not want for anything, because the audience will not be so interesting.

    But one important detail - we will have two stages. One of them - tiny, with the main feed into the crowd stretches podium. It will perform three songs. The crowd just go crazy when they can see us from so close. The merger with the audience I'm not experienced in a long time. For me it is - the most exciting moment of the concert.

    I do not want to brag, but all around saying that our concerts are - the best throughout the history of the group. Great feeling to contribute and that the relationship between members of the group now - very delicious.

    - Any keyboard player Christian Lorenz, which previously beat, burn and rape scene, be sure and this time something bad happens?

    - Of course. This is - an integral part of life alone is worth half the ticket price. Here it is probably apsidžiaugtų if Rammstein finally iširtų (kvatojasi).

    - For almost two decades, none of the musicians have left the group. Where is the unity of your secrets?

    - Communication. I learned a lot from his previous marriage. One man gave me a sign that you hang on the studio wall. One side says "Chat" on the other - "hear."

    We have a lot of talk groups, each discussing the issues raised, we do not allow it to fester. In addition, we follow the principles of democracy. Each issue is dealt with group members. Seek to compromise. It is difficult, time consuming, but it is - the only good way from the ancient Greek times.

    - Video clips and photo shoots are engaged in sex with porn actresses (although the intimate scenes you played Dublin) and the "butcher" a naked woman. Were there ideas that you even looked too provocative?

    - Yes. Director John Akerlundas (shocking works of renowned Swedish developer - Ed.) Offered us this time that what we all refused. It was too extreme. We have our own moral standards, and voted against the idea.

    - Tell you by what was it?

    - No, do not. But it was more shocking idea than the movie "Pussy" with graphic sex scenes. There are things that might seem merely never. For example, some of the issues relating to children.

    - Probably much the idea that behind the scenes to ours orgies, and you are playing at cards or Monopoly. Are the fans will be surprised, after seeing you behind the scenes outside?

    - I think so. Be surprised what a friendly, gentle and kind we are, what our good sense of humor. Our image after all - is different.

    Girls came in behind the scenes and I thought that I like sadomasochism. Anything like that, I like to kiss. They were very surprised - what, seriously? (Laughs). But what to do, because now nepradėsiu Rammstein concert to divide the flowers.

    People sometimes "nepagauna" that we are actors. When the theater played the massacre scene, after all, no one then think that the actor - degenerate. The musicians are such a problem - make of the image and its already neatsikratysi, even if you switch to another group. Actor - otherwise, they play every day something else.

    - For several years, lived in New York this year came back to Berlin. Nostalgic for the American homeland or cry, however, stronger?

    - Of course, New York - a wonderful city and I miss it. His energy - specifically, a few cities have. In this period of life, the birth of a child, it was important for me to return to Germany, where the family feel calmer. I think Berlin will live two to three years. And then I begin to worry. I miss the ocean and the space. Maybe once again attracted to the United States - Los Angeles would be good option.

    - I grew up in East Germany. Does this make you more interesting to visit Eastern Europe, to see how things are changing here?

    - I would not say. I wonder everywhere - even in Western cities are different. While shops everywhere, of course, the same, and it is annoying. Eastern Europe, I noticed one thing - the more viewers really miss the music, live it to respond. Išsprogsta their feelings in that moment, when we walk into the scene. West, where we've already seen 20 times, is difficult to make an impression.

    - Europe now - difficult times. You are often inspired by social phenomena. Does not intend to write a song or an entire album of this crisis?

    - We have already created a song, 'Mehr', which is a perfect example of what is now happening. And the bad things going on.

    - You scared? For example, that the euro will collapse and begin a complete chaos?

    - It is terrible, but not for the money. A couple of years I read many books about the economy. The more I understand about it, the more I see how things are fucking. We live in a capitalist system, which is based on consumption. In order to use, growing debt. Everything starts to strangle her. That the system can function again, it must collapse.

    I'm afraid for the future. Seriously I think, or should move to New Zealand, to buy a cow and grow tomatoes. As if the Western world because of all this junk economy will start the war, I'm sure it will not attend.
