Feuer Frei! BackThe back to the coming Feuer frei! single has been revealed at the official site. It shows Olli from the "Ich Will" video. Oddly, only one track is listed so this is probably not final.

Rammstein's site: update

September 6, 2002

At some point yesterday, they removed their messages about Herzeleid.com. Thanks to everyone that helped!

New old videos

September 5, 2002

Four videos from 1994 have been added to the Multimedia section. They were taken from Achtung! Wir kommen., a documentary about the music scene in Germany in 1994. These are clips of live footage, practicing, interviews, and the band in the offtime. An old version of "Alter Mann" is included!

Comments on Rammstein's site

September 3, 2002

Rammstein.com and Rammstein.de and the Fanareas have taken upon themselves to be judge and jury without even looking at evidence or taking testimony -- and have decided to tar and feather me in the public square.

Because of questionable statements on the issue rape that appeared on the above site Rammstein decided not to continue recommending this page.

While it is surely their right and to have an opinion, this could be looked at as libel (a written or oral defamatory statement or representation that conveys an unjustly unfavorable impression). You might want to know what is really going on. This was a private conversation and has been taken entirely out of context and misunderstood. They are taking offense to some personal opinions, statements, and jokes that most of you have never seen nor would have. They are in a separate place, not fully attached to Herzeleid.com. I in no way condone rape and think it is a vile and disgusting thing and a sign of a severely disturbed individual. I find the fact that Rammstein's webteam would post such an open-ended statement allowing for horrible misunderstandings to be incredibly unprofessional.

The place where these things occurred was in the General section of the forums. The topic was CLOSED a while ago because I realized a few people didn't understand where I was coming from and I didn't want to offend anyone. This was to let it die slowly while still maintaining some amount of free speech. I don't know how that has to do with this site, nor do I think my opinions expressed within are entirely controversial and were more tongue-in-cheek than anything. I was not the one who started the thread, just replying. They seem to be upset because I said it.

I think they are missing the fact that Forums.herzeleid.com is not Herzeleid.com The forums are a different site that houses many different opinions yet tries to keep things safe for everyone. If it were just another part of Herzeleid.com, it wouldn't have sections on German music, Music, or even anything BUT Rammstein. Herzeleid.com is washed of anything offensive for mass consumption, besides that which Rammstein themselves might say or believe or my opinion alone. Has everyone forgotten their own posting of the Arundhati Roy article on the 9-11 attacks and the backlash they recieved? I stood by them then. My opinion wasn't even on Herzeleid.com and I receive this response.

I do think it is incredibly hypocritical that they would post such a humiliating comment on their site, as if to publicly shame me. They could have just removed the link. Now they take a stance on morality and shoot down one of the few sites that's been around and consistently supported them -- even with their bizarre lyrics, beliefs, and actions. Where would we be if we gave in to all the rumors we have heard about Rammstein or even took their lyrics, videos, and stage show at face value without thinking about them?

Inspite of their actions, I will continue to do what I have always done: I will maintain this site and provide the most accurate information possible. No rumors or false information.

Still if anyone is confused about my beliefs: I in no way condone rape and think it is a vile and disgusting thing and a sign of a severely disturbed individual.

There is a discussion regarding this topic in my forums. You can also e-mail Rammstein's webteam and let them know what you think.
