Rammstein!
« on: January 05, 2008, 01:30:49 pm »
There wasn't a Rammstein thread so there's where I come in.

Who else likes this band? My favourite are Moskau:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbMqjuCO478" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbMqjuCO478</a> (Really good duet)

Links 234 and Halleluja. The main thing I like about Rammstein is the symbolic text that other heavy metal bands (with the notable exception of Iron Maiden and Metallica) sometimes miss and the semi-dramatic build-up and fall down.

They have the worst lyrics of any metal/industrial band ever.

That includes Turisas and Dragonforce.

In what way? I know the English translations usually suck and are stiff/wooden. I myself usually avoid headbangy songs with lyrics that make no sense and prefer ones with more meaningfull lyrics like Iron Maiden, Rammstein, and Metallica.

Ohne Dich/Without you? Moskau, two ways to look at a city? Amerika, parody on cocacolonisation? I prefer them over non-synced emo whines about stuff or barely-hearable spouts by some heavily pierced and tatooed guy with massive heargrowth.

I've heard of this band before and that people really liked them but never heard their music. Not to my liking. Btw, I changed your title so if someone else searches for the name they will find it.

I only really like Du Hast, but I like Du Hast so much, i should start looking at more of their music.


EDIT: Oh! They sing Amirika! I frogot about that, i like that song to. A bit to "We hate america" for me, im getting sick of the "its cool to hate America" thing.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, out

Everyone is waiting for the light
be afraid, don't be afraid
the sun is shining out of my eyes
it will not set tonight
and the world counts loudly to ten

One
Here comes the sun
Two
Here comes the sun
Three
It is the lightest star of all
Four
Here comes the sun

One
Here comes the sun
Two
Here comes the sun
Three
It is the lightest star of all
Four
Here comes the sun
Five
Here comes the sun
Six
Here comes the sun
Seven
It is the lightest star of all
Eight, nine
Here comes the sun

Sure, those are real insightful lyrics.

Seriously, get some perspective and start listening to bands with decent lyrics. Rammstein is not a place to start, nor are most industrial bands.

I think they have marginally better lyrics than Turisas.

Marginally.

But when you see the video with Snow White and the band being the dwarfs...it all makes sense Daxx. Not too surprisingly, almost all the Germans I've met hate Rammstein. I understand their lyrisc, and I still find them funny and sometimes moving. Dalai Llama's got great lyrics, for example...in German anyway.

Can't take them too seriously...when they started doing that they produced their worst album(Rosenrot being the only decent song).
