Like I said, not much of a Rammstein fan, although I'd definitely go see them live. That'd be awesome if they came here again... my mom, my brother, and I would all go.
I've seen them live. Lots of flame and pyrotechnics.
I loved the song Rammstein (off their album Herzaleid) where he wears nothing but some flame retardent pants and jacket and sings the song.
Some of you might have seen the poster on my wall in the Picture thread. Thats him singing that song.
But Till Lindemann (the lead vocalist) is not the only one to light himself on fire or use a flamethrower mask or some other weird contraption that shoots fire. Those from what i can tell he is the only one to wear this thing.
It's used quite often during Freuer Frei (which featured in the opening sequence of the movie XXX), especially at the point where he says (Freuer Frei) BANG BANG.
Till Lindemann is one of my favourite Lyricists of all time, though you kinda have to know german to get it as when it gets translated into english the words dont have the same poeticness they had in german. Sentence structure and all that.
Also things like Mein Teil, which is german for My Part, or rather my Penis. It's a reference to Armin Meiwes, a man in Germany who found a willing "victim" (Bernd J?rgen Brandes) to slaughter. Before the deed, Brandes wanted his penis cut off, and they ate it together.
And let us not forget the brillinat song Du Hast. When Till is just saying "Du hast," it sounds as if he could either be saying "Du hast" (you have) or "Du hasst" (you hate). This is to give the song a double meaning, even though the official lyrics say "Du hast."
There is another sort of double meaning in the song. If the line is read as "Tod der Scheide" it would be "until the death of the vagina" and not "until death, which would seperate" ("Tod, der scheide"). The whole song is a play on German wedding vows (Wollen Sie einander lieben und achten und die Treue halten bis dass der Tod euch scheidet? - Do you want to love and respect each other and to remain faithful, until death seperates you?). Instead of answering with "Ja," Till says "Nein," finally answering the question he said nothing to in the beginning.
du hast mich gefragt, und ich hab nichts gesagt, means you have asked me and I have said nothing Incase you weren't exactly sure what I was referring to.
du hast mich
du hast mich gefragt
du hast mich gefragt, und ich hab nichts gesagt
you have me
you have asked me
you have asked me and I have said nothing
I'm not sure how many of you are able to piece this together (it's kind of a long shot) but, as you may or may not have guessed, my user name is actually german, it is german for Elf Song. It's name is derived from a old german song about an Elf (there just happens to be an anime/manga with the same name which references the same german song).
Rammstein have a song called Mein Herz Brennt (one of the songs used in one of the Hellboy II trailers), part of the lyrics in Mein Herz Brennt are about demons, ghosts and black fairies (" D?monen Geister schwarze Feen" being the exact lyrics naturally), so yes, any music that is german and is about magic creatures will inivitably tickle my fancy, so yeah, you could say I am a Rammstein fan.
