Rammstein: 'Pussy' Single Artwork Unveiled
0
Rammstein, the Berlin, Germany-based industrial metal sextet well known for its controversial and fiery live performances, will release a new single, "Pussy", on September 18. It will be made available a two-song digipack, also featuring the track "Rammlied" as the B-side. A video for "Pussy" was recently shot with renowned Swedish director Jonas kerlund, who has previously worked with Metallica, Satyricon, Madonna and The Prodigy, among others. Check out the single artwork here. "Pussy" comes off Rammstein's new album, which will be released in the U.S. on October 20 via Vagrant Records. The band's first new CD in four years contains 11 songs which were once again mixed and mastered by Jacob Hellner in Stockholm, Sweden. Pre-production for the new release was done at Castle Beerenstedt in eastern Germany's Halle/Saale while the bulk of the recording was done in late 2008 at Northern California's Sonoma Mountain Studio. The track listing for the CD is as follows: 01. Rammlied 02. Ich Tu Dir Weh 03. Waidmann's Heil 04. Haifisch 05. B****** 06. Fruehling In Paris 07. Weiner Blut 08. Pussy 09. Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da 10. Mehr 11. Roter Sand U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine has posted a complete track-by-track guide to the new Rammstein album. Rammstein has sold nearly three million records in the U.S. and over 14 million albums worldwide. The band first stormed American shores in 1998 touring behind their Grammy-nominated breakthrough sophomore release, "Sehnsucht". Band members were jailed in the U.S. on indecency charges during the 1998 Family Values tour due to Rammstein's highly provocative live show. Rammstein's last tour through the U.S. was in 2001 in support of "Mutter", and as they continued to sonically and visually explore societal and sexual taboos, Rammstein has found themselves embroiled in further controversies both here and abroad throughout the last decade. Rammstein retains an aura of mystery due in part to their ambiguous lyrics (sung almost entirely in German) while their chart-topping releases and sold-out worldwide tours prove that fans can't get enough of this enigmatic group. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    lumping rammstein in with other controversial acts like say Marylin Manson is just wrong. For one thing, these guys have WAY WAY more brains than to just be a band that stirs shit up just to sell records. I'd also like to point out that Rammstein is one of the very few bands thats equally if not even more famous for their live shows, I would say controversy is only a tiny fraction of what makes this band both unique and amazing. Rammstein will forever grab my attention because they're one of the most unique sounding bands out there in world filled with second rate pop punk and metalcore wannabes. Anyone who does not respect these guys cannot begin to form a serious opinion about heavy music in general.

    This is a music site, and Rammstein is music. If you want a family site, take a look to discovery kids.

    rammstein has thrived on controversy from the very very start

    I can't wait to see what record stores do with this - do they sell it and get yelled at by the obscenity police, or don't and suffer the wrath of Rammstein fans.

    The censored word is b!tches. I'm surprised they'd show this artwork when they censor other words on this site.

    YES! The masters are back. Does anyone think that the line "I can't get laid in Germany" is ridiculously funny? Tour soon! This is going to be epic...

    No, it is completely right and perfectly fine. But Rammstein wants you to think that it is wrong and piss you off/make you feel disgusted, that's how they work, and that is why I love them. Fuck you!

    Can't wait. Been waiting to hear something new from these guys for a long time.

    The fact that so many of you are complaining and are "shocked and appalled" means Rammstein have done their job. And for those that hate on them, I have an advice for you: go wack off to the Jonas Brother or whatever queer "safe" and "unappalling" band you're into, b/c Rammstein's not for people with no balls.

    anyone that says, i dont like this, its too obscene, thats too far or anything along those lines, simply just doesnt appreciate rammstein enough something like this is just what they needed to do to just say, now we're back and honestly? i cant ****ing wait

    And by watching the trailers of "pussy" its seems to be done in a light hearted way and besides its not like rammstein havent sung about sexual content before, maybe half the people here didnt realise that

    it's funny how in the forums all the mods keep stressing the whole family site thing. But now this is here.

    The promos for the video and the website LIFAD.org are funny as hell, and the english lines in the single are to funny to put into mortal words.

    Ahh this looks brilliant! Nice and controversial sexual stuff. What the 'Stein do best!

    Is anybody replacing NIN's Piggy with Pussy other then me? Hey puss, puss puss pussy puss puss puss.

    That's amazing, not to mention fairly convincing from the preview. I appreciate that they can even put out things like that, granted Target and Walmart will have a brown paper bag version.

    Is this even allowed on UG, considering they have lady parts? :S
    Zero_Mike
    Wow... just wow... Equal parts odd and obscene; a brilliant juxtaposition of tities and man faces.
