Rammstein new album
Rammstein is a perfectionist group. It becomes even clearer when we look at the new making of photos from their new album.
2019 was undoubtedly the year of Rammstein. After ten years, Till Lindemann and Co. released a new album and the sextet also performed a stadium tour in Europe. Now, the metalheads give an overview of the preparations for the shooting. Personally, the documentaries on the artworks fascinate me. Regarding Rammstein, we are facing a real war machine, whose budgets allow all the follies.
A sumptuous staging
Rammstein presents an eight-minute documentary on YouTube (see above).
A team of videographers accompanied the group during a Photo shoot four days. Photographer Jes Larsen took care of the photo shoot, with whom he then designed the illustration for the new album.
This shoot introduces us to Larsen himself, retoucher Marty Bo Kristensen and stylist Vibe Dabelsteen.
Rammstein new album: the German steamroller
Ten years after “Liebe ist für alle da”, Rammstein finally broke the silence with a new, untitled album, the image of which is a matchstick on a pristine white background. The fuse is immediately lit, from the first passage highlighted by the controversial clip "Deutschland", which reveals a generation uncomfortable with the history of its country.
"Germany, my heart in flames / I want to love you and I curse you," chanted singer Till Lindemann with great chill. The group remains the same with their powerful war rhythms. Saturated guitars are present, as are the iconic electronic effects of this German “tanzmetal” that the Berlin group masters to perfection.
This seventh album was a huge success, catapulting first in terms of sales in Europe and in the top 10 in the United States and Australia.
For the group using the Goethe language, which is rather industrial metal kind, there is no precedent. Admittedly, the German band softened their point slightly as the tempo slows down to the sound of a lighter arpeggio after the introduction of "Puppe" or a clean ballad like "Diamond" with a classical guitar and cello. at the end.
The devil remaining hidden in the details, eleven songs lying on the CD deserve careful listening, because the album is full of discoveries, arrangements and war messages condemning pedophile monsters, or the perverse effects of nationalism.
After the first sold-out tour of European stadiums in 2019, a new set of dates for the summer of 2020 were planned.
Unfortunately, COVID 19 will have taken the skin of German warriors
