Loads of Rammstein fans here.

There was a big thread about a possible Irish date here:http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...ight=rammstein

All gone quiet on that front unfortunately.

Yeah, it doesn't look great for them coming here.

They're one of the few bands I love that I haven't seen yet. So I'm fairly disappointed. I have to see them before they retire (I think I remember seeing somewhere that Till said something about wanting to retire at 50, that only gives me two more years!)

They're a great example of a band that have simple songs, but that are so powerful.

I've come to appreciate them over the last few months and love the last album. I'm figuring on a cheap Ryanair flight over to catch them the next time they play a Berlin home gig, whenever that is.

Love them. Saw them at Rock Wercther last year, was on the rail at the front and my face nearly melted with all the pyro. It was insane.

I travelled over to see them last year in Birmingham ... they were absolutely amazing.

Big fan...Loved the older stuff though funnily enough I didn't really like mutter (except for zwitter and sonne). LIFAD has really grown on me though. Great album.

Anyone who's not a Rammstein fan would do well to get the hell out of this forum until they learn some appreciation for decent music.

Would love to see them. They are my secret shame. Not sure why but I always get funny looks when people find out I'm listening to them. I'm sure I don't fit into their typical demographic.

They have some great videos. They really put thought into them especially when they link them up.

I don't hold out too much hope of them coming here now, I think last year was the big chance, they said they were in discussions - and if it didn't happen then I don't see what's gonna change......real pity if they don't come here, there's clearly lots of fans here, I know a lot of people outside the metal side of things that are big fans.........I'd very much doubt they'd have trouble selling out a date here.....

so what do folks around here reckon is their best album? I'm still in that honeymoon phase where I can listen to anything and enjoy it. LIFAD does have a great overall sound to my ears anyway.

Also, I'm in the very early stages of learning German, has anyone thoughts on English translations of their lyrics? I found a site that has translations of some tracks http://herzeleid.com/en/lyrics but I've no way of knowing whether they are in any way accurate.

Danke
