The Gauntlet recently caught up with RAMMSTEIN guitarist Paul Landers. The following is an excerpt from the interview:
The Gauntlet: What is new with Rammstein?
Paul: "The big news is that the band has just gotten back together and has begun working on new songs. We are working on new material and have put together 30 tracks already. There are a few songs that came from individual members at home, but the thing that is really fun this time is the way we work together. That is what is enjoyable."
The Gauntlet: With the last two albums, the band really didn’t work together, Richard (Kruspe/guitars) was in New York and the band was in Germany. So the band is working more closely on the songs this time?
Paul: "Richard still lives in New York. The band has been together in Germany for the majority of the songs. Richard has been flying back and forth a lot. The sessions have been really good this time."
The Gauntlet: With the band having such a positive time recording, will that make the album less aggressive?
Paul: "I think aggression can be positive. Energy-wise, it is probably going to be heavier. Everything is going to be a little more on point. This could be the heaviest record we have done. The last two we did were a bit on the sweet side."
The Gauntlet: The last two were a bit on the sweet side, but they still had a dark and aggressive undertone.
Paul: "The band thinks everything is heavier and tighter this time around. It is always difficult for the band to say though as the band thinks it might be heavier, but journalists will come out and say it sounds like the other one and this is completely different from the other album. It is very subjective. Now that we have already done a full five albums, we have a certain confidence that this album will be good. Just like you know when you are getting a Mercedes 'S' Class, it will be a great car."
