Rammstein To De-lock Unreleased Material

The following messages have been posted on Rammstein's official website:

Good news: Rammstein are currently working on a successor, which will presumably be called "Reise, Reise (Vol.2)" The management's statement was: "After the production period of the last album, there were many songs which did not find a place on "Reise, Reise" due to dramaturgical reason but are now completed. This is not unusual. As "Ohne Dich" derived from the production of "Mutter", many songs have been sitting to be completed for a year and shall now come to light. Which songs remains to be seen and is up to the band only." A co-worker of the record company remembers: "When we were introduced to the tracks of "Reise, Reise", many fascinating songs were among them, which were suddenly missing on the album. Among others I remember one song, which we all believed to bet he first single of the album. The song was "Rosenrot" and when we had to realize that the band changed their minds and it did not even make it on to the album, we were speechless. The album was perfect nevertheless, but their enormous self-confidence surprised us. Ever since, we hope to see some of the songs from back then released and I am happy that the band could agree on that." During Rammstein's short stop at a studio in Berlin, apparently 2 - 3 additional songs were recorded. The mixing session of the album, which is supposed to be released this fall, already began.

To mark the event of the opening concert of four sold-out shows at the berlin Wuhlheide, Rammstein introduced the first song of their new succeeding album "Reise, Riese (Vol.2)", anticipated in October, live on front of a home town audience. The song "Benzin", presented with fire fountains goshing 20 meters into the air, was euphorically met by the fans and visibly delighted the band

More Tuska Open Air Details Revealed

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival has added more international and Finnish acts to the 2005 roster. The line-up is almost complete with only 1 more artist to be added for Saturday afternoon as well as the winner from the band contest at Rotonde-Festival, France, which is to be held later this spring. This year's Tuska-Festival is more international than ever, with nearly half of the artists coming from abroad. The evening clubs will most likely see some international action as well.

New additions in Finnish professionalism will be represented by Apocalyptica, whose cello metal is witnessed way too rarely on their native soil. Apocalytica just recently supported Rammstein on their European tour and appeared stateside on a few selected dates.

German precision and universal greatness is brought to you by the mighty Gamma Ray. The band last appeared on the bill at Tuska 2000 and have since built their fanbase by selling out club shows on a regular basis.

Other additions include up-and-coming death metallers Amoral, Finnish-singing Stam1na and Viikate, as well as Callisto who are about to embark on a European tour in a few weeks.

The search continues for one more, either domestic or foreign artist.

Ticket sales for Tuska 2005 start on Friday April 1st. Three-day ticketcosts 67 euro, one-day ticket 32 euro. Go to www.lippupalvelu.fi to purchase tickets.

Current Tuska 2005 line-up reads as follows: More...

Rammstein "Mein Teil" Inspired By Grisly True Tale

Rammstein, the German band best known for the aggro song "Du Hast" and singer Till Lindemann's habit of intentionally lighting himself on fire on stage, have pushed the envelope further with their single, "Mein Teil," writing the song about a creepy tale of cannibalism.

According to mtv.com, the song, from Rammstein's latest CD, "Reise, Reise," was based on a widely publicized case in Germany where one man advertised on the Internet for another man to "dine on." A respondent offered up himself for supper, and indeed became the willing victim of cannibalism.

Rammstein guitarist Richard Kruspe said, "I was really interested to find out about why he would want to kill a man and eat [him]. It was just a really interesting story, so we decided to make a song about it."

There is videotape of the actual cannibalistic encounter, but it remains in police custody, and Rammstein's video for the song "Mein Teil," which translates roughly as "My Part," contains no references to the actual case.

Rammstein has confirmed European tour dates in February and June, and there is speculation that they will perform Stateside in April and May.

"Keine Lust" will be the next single released from "Reise Reise," slated to hit radio in February.

"Reise Reise," whose title roughly translates to "Journey Journey" in English, is the follow-up to the band's 2001 release, "Mutter."
