Those Teuton tekno trance thrashers, Rammstein, have released their latest offering called "Reise, Reise" ("Go, Go"). To whet your appetite for some alternative Oktoberfest Musik, click on this to check our their 2 singles, "Amerika" and "Mein Teil".
Somehow, their songs have been appearing in movies such as "Lost Highway", "XXX" and "Resident Evil: Apocalypse". Maybe it's because of their ability to translate Wagnerian pomp into bite-sized heavy-pop tunes. Videoes for the singles have already been shown on Euro music stations. If you've known about the 'steins and their clips, they haven't lost their touch for the grotesque ("Mein Teil") and the satirical ("Amerika").
Incidentally, there is an "Amerika" CD single out in Europa featuring different mixes, including an English version.
I, for one, am hoping that the 'steins will release "Amerika" as the album's first single over here. It fucking rawks!
