Clemens “Ardek” Wijers delivers Orchestral Contribution to Lindemann!

“CARACH ANGREN are highly acclaimed for their mindblowing orchestrations, which accentuate and underline the epic and narrative aspects of their horror metal masterpieces. The extraordinary talent as a composer of keyboarder Clemens “Ardek” Wijers has not escaped the newly forged alliance between RAMMSTEIN frontman Till Lindemann and Peter Tägtgren of HYPOCRISY and PAIN, which operates under the moniker LINDEMANN.

The leading Dutch metal magazine AARDSCHOK has just revealed in its May issue that Ardek of CARACH ANGREN has contributed to this project.

The composer comments: “I’m very proud to announce that I have created orchestral arrangements for project LINDEMANN by Till Lindemann and Peter Tägtgren”, relates Ardek. “Their album called ‘Skills in Pills’ will be released in May and is going to be a killer! You can read more about this in the latest Dutch magazine ‘Aardschok’.”

Legendary Swedish producer and musical mastermind Peter Tägtgren compliments: “Clemens pimped up my orchestra parts like a god.”

There is an official update on Emigrate Facebook page. Richard is sharing some insights from the recording of the upcoming album – called SSL II (Silent So Long II). We are not sure what will be the real name once released so let’s stick to what Richard suggested.

Here’s a quick update. We just finished recording drums for SSL II. Mikko flew in from Australia where he was on tour with Apocalyptica. This guy is an ANIMAL on drums and there is no higher compliment than that. He was able to bang out 8 tracks in 2 days like a champ. Much respect!
The atmosphere in the studio is very relaxed and free from frustration… I’m quite enjoying myself as I haven’t had one panic attack yet. Now that the drums are there I have set up my amps and recording chain to lay down the guitars. I don’t have the luxury this time to spend two months on it which is probably good since last time I ended up chasing the dragon (a.k.a. sound that doesn’t exist).
Ok, let’s all get back to work and I wish everybody some sunny days. We deserve it!
Richard ZK

What’s going on with Rammstein these days? Guitarist Richard Kruspe tells Loudwire about the band’s future plans, and recalls his most memorable Rammstein moments here:

The guitarist also reveals that Rammstein have fulfilled a lot of dreams for him over the years. In the interview, Kruspe discusses getting to play one of America’s most vaunted venues and finally reaching the point in their career that they could play this historic stage. To see which venue he’s talking about, watch the video above.

Richard looks little bit different on the recent videos as he is aging but he still acts as one of the most interactive band members with a lot of public interaction, giving a lot of interviews. We are also looking forward to see some interviews with Till on his recent production – stay tuned!

You can read the original text below and check out the original post here. More information should be revealed soon.

“Berlin in January:
It was grey and it was depressing. My studio should’ve been my escape but in an environment like this I only wound up writing more depressing songs. It would’ve been a no-win situation if we hadn’t come up with some good stuff for the next record, but we did. More than we needed, actually. The goal was to get two more songs and suddenly we had six in the basket. I’ll be taking these songs along with others we’ve done back into the studio in March to record with the same crew. With any luck we’ll be mixing by late April, giving us a new Emigrate record in September. The grey should be gone by then, but for now I wish everyone more light than I’ve been getting here. Unless you’re writing depressing songs too.

Bis gleich, Richard Z.K.”

Der Tastenficker - An was ich mich so erinnern kann
Der Tastenficker – An was ich mich so erinnern kann

The book will have 352 pages and will bw published by Schwarzkopf & Schwarzkopf on March 16th, 2015. Rammstein USA has kindly shared the following translation of the excerpt available at

When I discovered the Rolling Stones, my mother enthusiastically came dancing into the room. Cheerfully, she informed me, that this Mick Jagger of mine was exactly as old as she was. It wasn’t something I was keen to learn since I would always think of my parents whenever I heard the Stones. After that, the Stones weren’t even half as good anymore. I also got into the Dead Kennedys since they were playing so fast and hard. What can I say? My mother was quite impressed with them as well, and told me that Jello Biafra was a left-wing local politician and that alone made her like him. So that music was spoiled too. But the worst thing of all was when my parents came to a concert. Just knowing that my mother was in the audience, freaked me out. And once I saw her, excitedly swaying to the rhythm of our music, I felt caught, as if I had behaved like the good boy for her for years, and withholding the music I was making.

UPDATE: The book is now also available for purchase at RammsteinShop.

As 2014 winds down, we can reflect on an eclectic year in rock albums. You had new bands like Nothing More, Crobot, Starset and Islander bringing something fresh and new to the game. There were established acts like Chevelle, Slash and Seether showing they could still deliver some of their best work well into their careers. Acts like Hellyeah and Sixx: A.M. took some creative risks and a host of others also created albums that left their mark on 2014.

But who is the number one? It seems that Richard Kruspe made it to the top this year with his new album “Silent So Long”.

According to Loudwire:

The album offers up a mix of hard rock and industrial that is rock solid from beginning to end, but it’s the songs that boast guest spots that truly shine. ‘Rock City’ featuring Lemmy Kilmister is one of the best rock songs we’ve heard in years, while ‘Hypothetical’ featuring Marilyn Manson is a tour de force. With Peaches and Jonathan Davis among the album’s other guest stars, ‘Silent So Long’ stands out among the best rock albums of 2014.
