Rammstein Parts Ways With Vocalist, Announce Replacement

Emanuel Fialik of Pilgrim Management GmbH, which represents German industrial metal pioneers RAMMSTEIN, has issued the following press release:

"On the 13th of July 2007 the industrial gothic top act RAMMSTEIN announces that after the release of the next studio album, which is about to get finished, the current singer and frontman Till Lindemann will leave the band.

"Till's decision is mainly based on the increasing inharmoniousness within the band and was well deliberated. He will head now for other challenges which can be a solo career or maybe a new project (as of his own words).

"The band decided not to quit but announce a new singer. There is a clear statement coming from Richard Kruspe and Christoph Schneider that 'nobody ever can replace Till Lindemann' but since 'we have still so much fun doing RAMMSTEIN we looked for a new singer which is charismatic in his own way without copying Till.'

"The new singer which was found and signed to be the new RAMMSTEIN frontman is the co-founder and ex-member of the electro industrial act KMFDM and current singer of SLICK IDIOT — En Esch — who recently moved to Berlin to join the band.

"We all will miss Till Lindemann who gave us many years of joy by listening to his unique grinding voice. Please welcome the talented En Esch — Till's footsteps are big, but maybe he can dry our tears rapidly."

RAMMSTEIN will issue its "Völkerball" DVD in the U.S. in September. The exact release date will be announced soon.

RAMMSTEIN's latest album, "Rosenrot", received its long-overdue U.S. release in March 2006 via Universal Music. The CD, which was certified platinum in Germany for sales in excess of 200,000 copies within two weeks of release in October 2005, topped the official album chart in Germany, Austria and Finland, and landed at No. 2 in Sweden and Denmark, No. 4 in the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, No. 5 in France, No. 6 in Mexico, No. 11 in Italy and No. 29 in the U.K. In addition, "Rosenrot" achieved gold status in Austria, the Czech Republic and Switzerland.

RAMMSTEIN's track "Mein Teil" was nominated in the "Best Metal Performance" category at the 2006 Grammy Awards.

I haven't listened to this band since high school, but I don't see how they could exist without him.

This is such a good band, much of their work is underrated (outside of Du Hast, which is far from their best.) And Till has such a cool voice...This really sucks. At least the new singer has experience in industrial.....But I will probably be following Till's solo work than the new Rammstein.

Fire? Lots and lots of pyro?
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.

Just a shitty sell out german band that need fire to distract the audience from their music.

A different frontman might improve them!

Rammestein = shit

Much like KISS, then? Or every other band who uses, or has used fire and pyro in their shows. Iron Maiden, for example?

And how exactly did they sell out? They sound the same now as they did on their first album. In fact, their sound has progressed a lot on the last two records. That's not selling out.

Rammstein are a great band with unique, if often very simple, ideas. Not liking them and them being crap are two very different things.

This is a shame if it's true but it should be pointed out that neither Rammstein's site or that of Pilgrim Management have posted this press release, and that no major news sources in Germany are running this story. It's only music sources in America that are running it, and most of those have pulled it. It is believed by Rammstein fansites that it's a hoax, but we'll see.

Richard's solo project is coming first, though. And it sounds very promising.
