Rammstein listed on the Index?
In the past few weeks all Rammstein albums were on the verge of being listed to the Censorship Index and as a consequence further sales of the albums would have been stopped.
This summer, a worried Kreisjugendpfleger (“district youth guardian”) applied at the Federal Inspection Unit to have all Rammstein albums indexed as so-called “youth-endangering media”. After negotiations, this action has ceased as of the 10th of October. Fortunately, a review board composed of representatives from the state authorities, youth welfare services, tutors, church and religious groups, and book distributors and publishers did NOT subscribe to the view of the applicant that Rammstein lyrics were obscene, violence-glorifying, or sexually humiliating.
“Krieger play with Rammstein ...”
...at least this would have been THE news of the day almost exactly 20 years ago, when 2 of the members from Krieger stood on the stage together with Rammstein's Paul Landers! Can't believe it? Please find the photographic evidence here!
Years later, the young Kriegers have developed tremendously, also to be seen here...
...and a few more years later and following co-performances with, among others, In Extremo and Stone Sour, the new Krieger debut album was released 2 weeks ago.
Starting November 5th, Krieger play their first solo club tour.

Following strong response, the limited edition of the album is now available on the Krieger-Shop again!
Those who know what surname both Krieger brothers share, can win 2 tickets per winner for a Krieger club concert here at a lottery!
Flake opens Feeling B Archiv
On the 9th of November
“Grün & Blau” (“Green & Blue”) will be released, a retrospective of East Berlin punk band legend Feeling B, in which Rammstein's Flake Lorenz and Paul Landers gathered their first experiences as musicians. “Grün & Blau” isn't only a retrospective, but also contains the release of several hitherto believed-to-be-missing songs. Flake has spent the last year in his archive sifting through old records, selecting songs, and remixing them with the goal of giving the songs the kind of sound tühe young musicians desired back in the day. “Grün & Blau” is accompanied by a 120-page hardcover book, in which Flake has published a selection of texts that help to illuminate then and now through each other – stories from up close, so to speak.
To that end, a short note from Flake to Rammstein fans »
