So as most of you know, besondere du, That I am fond of Rammstein, the amazingly talented band. They are really good, give it a listen. While they're classified as Metal, (or in Germany, Neue Deutsche Harte) they're more than just metal artists, they are soul singers; no seriously.... one song made me cry. A METAL song made me cry. Here are why I like them, find your reasons for so-;
1- They sing so well; and most importantly CLEARLY!!! (that is a problem with so many languages round the world, you know?)
2- I can feel the pain/anger/joy when the lead man sings
3- Their metal is not 'noise', it is actual music. Taste is subjective though; it is totally up to you to listen to as you please
4- They're nice, mostly
Now what I actually wanted to say as this. I learned quite a bit from them, not just as musicians, but even stuff that makes me a better person. Those interested in reading, please proceed to know what I did, maybe it can help you too
So.... here goes-:
1- Better German and how to write poetically in a foreign language Gotcha!
2- Work for your passion. Keyboardist Flake had mentioned that they did a hell lot to make it, so yeah... I really should do so too.
3- Enjoy your work, and throw your passion forth. Keine Lust (No desire) was a song made based on this aspect. They were rich, famous and well-respected, but eventually it boiled to one thing- they were best friends who wanted to make music and follow their hearts; and that was the essence of their core selves. Kudos!
4- Money and fame is not everything, See above
5- Stay yourself. They teamed up to show what they felt, not aping others.
And by far the most important one ever.....
Appearances do not judge your true self. Behind a murderer-face there can lie pure gold. Proof- the lead singer. Read about him... and weep
