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.

  • Richard Kruspe talks about his new guitar RZK II

    Again in german. :S

    Only a small part of the interview is published in the link. Hope this time we could find it soon.

    Translated by Google Translator (we have some german students that could practise reviewing this.....)

    Rammstein Richard Kruspe guitar can burn
    Exclusive Interview

    With his new guitar RZK II sets Rammstein guitarist Richard Kruspe new styling standards. Is quite cheap but not the part.

    Richard, please briefly summarize the idea behind your new RZK II together.

    I had been with the RZK I the vision to create a guitar that looks burnt and therefore fit to the Rammstein image. The problem with such stories, of course, is always to put such ideas into reality, especially when one has to do with people who speak a different language and come from a different culture. [...] The original idea of a real Rammstein make guitar with the design of burning wood was, for me, but it has not died. My reasoning was: If you can not make such a guitar, then you should have at least one film with the desired design develop, which can stick to. For nearly a year apart then I sat down with the graphic designer of ESP and tried to convey how I imagine this film burned. When she was finally developed and glued, the result seemed to me unreal. Somehow all this nonsense ...


    After this action, you had almost abandoned the project then, is not it?

    Right. Then I met my new guitar tech Lutz know and told him about my idea. Lutz said: "Give me the guitar and the film, and I'll try anything." Lutz had previously worked with the guys from Sandberg and took the film to Brunswick. There was one - I must say clearly - produced flawless results. The implementation was extremely difficult and took extremely long, because you can not just stop burning a piece of wood, but had to develop a process, was burned at the paper and then glued on. The effort was so extremely high, but agreed with the result.


    The RZK II is not yet gone into production, right?

    Yes, but every guitar is unique, because it is baked by hand and therefore can never quite look the same. It is really something unique. I just wanted to bring out no standard model that can be bought on every corner. Of course, the interests of a guitar manufacturer are very different, but it gave me was no matter, since all really invested a lot of work and effort.


    What Richard Kruspe told more about his guitar, you read through our extensive magazine story.
