...So I was reading a tidbit from a different source, that Rammstein keyboardist Flake (aka, Christian Lorenz) recently called the LIFAD indexing 'a petty misunderstanding of art and a gross violation (or something to this effect) of civil rights'.
...So I found out through an informative tweeter, that as of this coming Wednesday Germans will be required to present proof of age (ID) in order to buy the new album. This was decided because the cover art images were deemed too graphic by whoever's in charge of this stuff; also, the lyrics to 'Ich Tue Dir Weh' were mentioned as 'having explicit references to sadomasochistic behavior'.
I was just wondering, if anyone else has any thoughts pertaining to Till Lindemann's recent 'all-black' wardrobe. Nowadays it seems he only wears black: black pants, black shirts, black shoes, black jackets.
This will probably be the last time I ever write anything about Rammstein. It is all over for me...
Let me make this very clear:
I will die first before supporting anything even remotely associated with advocating porn, prostitution. sex trafficking or violence against women. PERIOD - NO EXCEPTIONS.
Just when we thought it was safe to come out of the closet...
For a gut-wrenching, stomach-turning, 20- second racy video, see the new promo ad this band's got out for their upcoming single called 'Pussy'.
Aber aber aber! This new stuff makes 'Mann Gegen Mann' look like the Princess Diaries (you thought THAT one was saucy, wait till you see this new stuff)!
Since it should be common knowledge at this point that Rammstein's (potential) US shows will not be carbon copies of those that are done elsewhere, I have come up with a few ideas as to what these 'other' shows could be like.
I am envisioning Rammstein's collective energy and music in combination with a dark, gothy, spooky visual backdrop. Think it could work? Here are a few more details...
From the outset of this blog entry I will acknowledge, that I realize I may not win new friends by making such a bold statement. But there are several reasons for me taking this position, and I hope my thoughts will at least be considered by those interested in this topic.
...Of all the new titles (11) from Rammstein's forthcoming new album, I would have imagined that the track 'Pussy' would rank among the last of their picks to shoot a video for. The title alone suggests pulling from the mind's more primitive archives; and yet according to recent reports, 'Pussy' is indeed slated to become the band's first video release.
With a major tour about to kick off for Rammstein this coming November, a looming question remains: Will they come to the US this time around?
...Still thinking about the recent leaks of the new single, and wondering how it's all going to play out. I don't care what I hear or read, I still think it's going to turn out OK. Just have to wait and see on it, though.
