Metal Sanaz conducted an interview with vocalist Till Lindemann and drummer Christoph Schneider of German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN on the “black carpet” of the third annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which was held on April 20 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California. You can now watch the chat below.
RAMMSTEIN bassist Oliver “Ollie” Riedel revealed during an interview with MusikUniverse.net that the band’s concerts in New York and Montreal were filmed for a forthcoming DVD. In addition, the group is planning to release a “best-of” collection featuring two previously unreleased songs.
RAMMSTEIN first stormed America in 1998, touring with a set based on their Grammy-nominated breakthrough second release, “Sehnsucht”, featuring “Du Hast”, the song prominently featured in David Lynch’s film “Lost Highway”.
RAMMSTEIN’s latest album, “Liebe Ist Für Alle Da”, sold 22,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart. Previously, the group’s best rank came with its 1998 chart debut, “Sehnsucht”, which peaked at No. 45 off the strength of its only U.S. radio chart hit, “Du Hast”.
“Liebe Ist Für Alle Da” arrived in stores on October 20, 2009 through a marketing and distribution deal with Vagrant Records and Universal Music Germany. The album was produced by Jacob Hellner and RAMMSTEIN, with recording done at Northern California’s Sonoma Mountain Studio. The first single from the 11-track release was “Pussy”, which was released as a digital single on September 22, 2009 and accompanied by one of the year’s most viral videos.
