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.

Richard Kruspe recently gave an interview to the German TV program PopXPort to promote Silent So Long. When asked about Rammstein, Richard Kruspe revealed that the band is still on hiatus, but will meet in September 2015 to decide what to do next.

In addition, Richard also revealed that Flake Lorenz is currently writing a book and Till Lindemann is working on a solo album. After the interview, it was revealed that the band’s next releases will be the DVD / Bluray of the Madison Square Garden concert (December 2010) and an official documentary.

You can watch the video of Richard’s interview here. The information presented in this post is mentioned at minute 15.
