VampireFreaks.com recently caught up with RAMMSTEIN guitarist Paul Landers. The following is an excerpt from the interview:

Q: Since you guys are known for putting on crazy shows, what is the craziest thing thats happened at one of our shows?

Landers: "Once we had a show in Sweden and Till (Lindemann/vocals) actually set the entire backdrop on fire. Everyone in the audience of course thought it was planned and it was great, but it wasn't at all part of the plan. We sort of have a sense of healthy fear because of that incident with GREAT WHITE with that big fire in that club. So we're sort of afraid the fire thing will be completely forbidden. Another crazy story is that a long time ago Till had a firecracker rocket that he would fire off, it was like a huge rocket, a real big fireworks rocket that goes realy high. At one concert we were playing at a club where you could open the ceiling. We didn't tell anyone, there was no warning and he had to actually hit the hole in the ceiling. If he wouldn't have hit it, it would have blown up right in the club!"

Q: The album Rosenrot is known to be the "sister album" to Reise Reise. Will there be any other "sister albums" in the future?

Landers: "Basically we had a bunch of songs extra from reise reise and we had a contract for five albums with universal, Rosenrot was the last of the five albums to fulfill the contract. so we took a bunch of the songs that for theatrical reasons didn’t fit into reise reise or would have been b-sides and we also wrote 4 or 5 new songs. there were several reasons for that - 1) we wanted to take a break for a year, 2) we wanted to finish the contract, and 3) there were good songs there so we may as well wanted to get them out.

Q: What happened with the contract then?

Landers: "We've got no contract right now and we're free to look around. we got all the cards in our hand so everything's open right now."
