Rammstein

Wed Oct 18, 2006 5:22 am

Hi everybody,

I am just curious, who on A.net likes Rammstein (not the AB  Silly )

I do, I don’t know what really got me into it, but they make really great music.  Silly

What is your opinion?

I have no clue why I like them, it must be because they are so different to the norm.

Anyway, I love Feuer Frei, Amerika is not too bad and Duhast is alright.

Weird as I say.

They are not what I normally listen too, most bands I like have a Female singer fronting them and are Symphonic or Gothic, but Rammstein have appealed to me recently, especially "Sonne"

I utterly love them. Not only do they have excellent music which all my friends like too, but they bring recognition of another country (Germany of course) to us stupid Americans.  Big grin Excellent, excellent band. Excellent vocals and musicians all around, with varied sound and great performances. (Very over the top.) It's worth noting that I see a lot of Germans who do not like them for whatever reason.

I also think they are a great band. I saw them at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York back in July 2001. One of the best concerts ever. Great show and fantastic music.

I like them too, their a good band. I own the Mutter CD, one of the very few CD's I own actually. (I only own three) I would like to see them perform live aswell. What I like is the heavy guitar playing and German lyrics.

Rammstein is great - I have their Rosenrot album, and a few others. I can't understand most of it, doesn't stop me though. People think i'm bonkers listening to stuff I can't understand.

You know, the English version is completely different from the German

Quoting RootsAir (Reply 19):

Actually, they are rather left wing. People think because they have a harsh tone they are rightist, but that couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, Links, Zwei, Drei, Vier was a response to critics who completely mischaracterized them as such.

Erm...RootsAir I take it you do not understand a single word of German? Well, maybe, just maybe it'd be sensible to have someone who does translate it for you, and then you'll find out the truth  Wink

But then you're not the only one, even some political-overcorrecties in Germany tried to put the bad bad bad rightwing label onto them, related to the rolling rrrrrrrr of Till Lindemann.

I do like them, or rather...did, it gets tiresome after all these years, and they don't come up with something new actually. Still, when they made the live album, I WAS THERE, and THAT was a frigging great concert!! (first time I was on a concert that was recorded...the second one being Rush 2004 Frankfurt)
I know it's only VfB but I like it!

I remember in the late 90s at a birthday party when someone brought a CD with German heavy metal. We laughed so hard the first time we heard it, but it was pretty cool at the same time.

The album was of course

Sehnsucht

Loved pretty much all the songs on that album (although Du Hast has become tiring since it became known all over the world.) Some of the newer stuff ain't so bad either.

Decent band.

Rammstein, geile Mucke Big grin . Absolutely love them, just about hard enough for my taste. Albeit, I also really like their "ballads", if you can call them that, namely "Ohne Dich" and "Klavier". Also, not to forget that they always put out interesting videos, to say the least, even though some are rather controversial, with two of them being completely banned from German television, "Mein Teil" due to supposed cannibalism, and "Stripped", because the video is based on films produced under the Nazi regime. And yet they allow that ultra-gay video for "Mann gegen Mann"...

The only song on that album I couldn't stand, but it sounds much better today.  Smile

My absolute favorite band! I was at home one night at about 1:30am watching MTV, yes they were actually playing videos then and they played "Du Hast" just after it was released. It was almost a spiritial moment for me, I couldn't believe what I was hearing and seeing. I was instantly hooked and went out the next day and bought the CD "Sehnsucht" and found out they had a previous CD and bought that too! When I show people the DVD's they always freak too, you picture a band like this would be seen as "a white racist band" but I've shown it to a Mexican friend who is now hooked and a black friend who actually bought a RT Lufthansa ticket for something like $1100 and a concert ticket in Berlin to see them live. Their music is ear heroin.

That song was not from Rammstein but some obscure Finnish band.
