Rammstein Newsletter!


Newsletter in english


+++ Message from Rammstein

Although we're currently on the "Pledge of Allegiance" tour in the USA, the
of which had to be postponed due to the events of 11 September, we are
asking ourselves if we're fully informed, do we know everything?

The events of 11 September and their consequences vividly demonstrate that
information is one of the most important freedom-related values of this world.
we are we fully informed, if we know all of what is actually happening, if we
know the different perspectives of one and the same event, then we have the
fairest of all chances to fight our way through the jungle of opposition and
contradiction and form an individual opinion and to hold it. The world is not
simple, there isn't only black or white, there isn't simply good or bad,
each piece of information, every opinion, every point of view throughout the
current months is a building block for the formation of our own opinions. An
article by Arundhati Roy, even if it was written very soon after the events of
September, has deeply impressed us and we feel that it is important for it to be
heard. We are pleased that the author has authorised us to publish her article
on our homepage www.rammstein.com.

+++ Mutter Limited Tour Edition

On 10/29/01 the double cd "Mutter Limited Tour Edition" will be released
worldwide. The extra edition of Rammstein's album "Mutter" features an
alternative artwork and a bonus-cd including live versions of "Ich will", "Links
3 4", "Sonne" and "Spieluhr.

+++ Rammstein-Book

Available in stores from 11/01/01. More information will be released on 11/01/01

Coal Chamber, Kittie, Mushroomhead, Amen, Powerman 5000, Rammstein,

Coal Salvation
Coal Chamber re-titled their forthcoming new album to, "The Dark Salvation". The mixing of the effort was completed over the weekend with the albums producer, Ross Hogarth (Motley Crue), and a tentative February 26th release date through Roadrunner/Island/Def Jam has been set.

Wow... first 'Dark Days', then 'Salvation', and now 'Dark Salvation'? Whats next? 'Dark Salvation Days'? *LOL*

Video I Always Wanted
Kittie have posted the video for their new single "What I Always Wanted" on their official website, http://www.kittie.net . The track comes from the groups forthcoming new album "Oracle", due out on November 13th through Artemis.

I will have to take a look at that video when i get home.. stupid school computers have everything blocked!

2 newly re-mixed tracks from Mushroomhead's forthcoming Universal re-release of their outing "XX" have been posted here ( http://www.totalassault.com/bands/mushroomhead.htm ). The album is due in stores on December 04th.

I will have to check that out when i get home.. i was once told that Slipknot is just a copy of Mushroomhead but i don't really think so.. i (and maybe yourself) will have to look into them.

Casey Kinison
Amen frontman Casey Chaos recently produced material for Illinois based act, The Kinison. For more information, check out their official website located here ( http://www.geocities.com/kinisonband ). In related news, Casey is currently accepting demos from bands "who are looking to further their exposure", for more information, check out the Amen's official website at http://www.comaamerica.com . At present, Amen are hard at work on their upcoming new album with producer Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot). A release early next year through I AM/Virgin is being eyed.

The song 'Price Of Reality' by Amen rocks!

Powerman 5000 are heavily rumored to have parted ways with bassist Dorian Heartsong and drummer Al Pahanish. Though no official statement has been released on the matter yet, various sources, including Metal Hammer, have confirmed their departure. At present, the band are said to be working on new material for the release of their forthcoming new album "Anyone For Doomsday?, which is due out early next year through Dreamworks.

Man... thats shocking news.. HA!

Rammstein have dropped off of the remaining dates of the Pledge Of Allegiance Tour, which features Slipknot, System Of A Down, No One and American Head Charge. No reason has been given.

Whats up with that?

Cocky Kids
Kid Rock's video for his new single "Forever" is set to premiere on MTV's "Making The Video" on November 08th and will also air on TRL the following day, November 09th. The track comes from his forthcoming new album "Cocky", due out November 20th through Lava/Atlantic.

Why am i posting this? If that song is not heavy i am going to be pissed!

According to a recent posting on the bands official website http://www.methodsofmayhem.com , the band have wrapped up their forthcoming sophomore outing and are planning to release it in March through MCA, with a single and video beginning to air in late February.

I think the Methods Of Mayhem are a bunch of crap...
anyone else agree?
