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 amazon.de:

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.

Chevelle-Emigrate-Slash

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.

This is an incredible story. A couple of days ago I was accidentally reading the “About” page on Affenknecht and discovered that the site was launched already in 2005 (formerly under domain Rammstein-Europe.com, but we had some troubles years ago). Now my calendar says it’s almost 2015. Incredible 10 years – of course full of Rammstein – many life concerts, hours / weeks of listening and of course also web development. This site is something I am really proud of.

I was hesitant for a long time and did not want to touch the great rusty design I made in 2004/5. But then I realized that the original artwork does not meet the needs of today’s fans. More and more of you access the website from mobile devices and it is important that the website is readable also on smartphones and tablets.

The new design also shows all media in more spectacular way – not small images, but nice huge pictures of your favorite band!

Another thing I want to say is that I believe that the new template will last for next 10 years but first of all let’s test it together for couple of months!

I also want to thank to all people who helped me with the site / social media and forum administration. Huge amount of work.

And last but not least big thanks to all fans who are with us – especially those who remember Rammstein Europe and went with us through all the good and bad times. Are you one of them? Share your biggest thing related to Affenknecht in the comment section!

For those of you who are using Spotify this is a great news: as of now, you can listen to the albums of the German band Rammstein.

Who previously sought on the streaming service Spotify for music of Rammstein, found no more than an obscure “Ode to Rammstein”, but not the songs of the band from East Berlin.

They were among the objectors of the streaming model and were prominent in society with the Beatles and AC/DC, but also with other German bands like Die Toten Hosen or Die Ärzte.

But this changed today’s morning: Rammstein can also be heard on Spotify, to the great joy of the European Director for label contacts, Kevin Brown. We have been in dialogue with the band for quite some time now, he says, and they had been convinced of the “opportunity to contact a new generation of music fans.”

The deal with Universal Music covers the fee-based music subscription service Spotify as well as the ad-supported version and applies worldwide. The catalog of Rammstein includes six studio albums, including the two double-platinum works “Mutter” (2001) and “Liebe ist für alle da” (2009).

The band released the last album “Made In Germany 1995-2011″ at the end of 2011 under their own label in partnership with Universal Music.
