RAMMSTEIN guitarists Paul Landers and Richard Kruspe spoke to Metal Hammer magazine about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band’s follow-up to 2009’s “Liebe Ist Für Alle Da” album.
Kruspe said: “It really depends on our singer Till [Lindemann], that he can finish the mysterious ideas we have. At the moment we have 30 ideas, some with lyrics, and some not.
“We’re working on the vocals, and then we might consider another producer. There’s all those question marks that we haven’t answered yet.”
Landers added: “Our goal right now is to write really good songs and maybe even try unusual methods, new ideas, and change the path that one usually has.
“It might be that when grandmother hears the album, she thinks it’s the same as the other ones. But for us, we really want it to be another milestone.”
RAMMSTEIN last year played a number of concerts where the band opened each show with a brand new song, presently only known as “Ramm 4”. The track contains lyrics that seem to be a combination of various titles of previous RAMMSTEIN songs.
RAMMSTEIN will release a new concert DVD and Blu-ray, “Paris”, on May 19. The set was recorded in March 2012 at the then-named Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris (now AccorHotels Arena) during RAMMSTEIN‘s “Made In Germany” tour, and was helmed by the band’s longtime collaborator, Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund.
Lindemann in 2015 released a debut album with his side project LINDEMANN.
Kruspe‘s EMIGRATE project issued its sophomore album, “Silent So Long”, in November 2014 via Spinefarm.
