Rammstein - Beware Of Hoax!


The following statement has been cited on blabbermouth:

German industrial metallers Rammstein have parted company with singer Till Lindemann.

According to an official statement from the band, Lindemann's decision to leave the Grammy nominated outfit was because of "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," continues the statement.

The band have announced that former KMFDM man En Esch will take his place on vocal duties. Rammstein guitarist Richard Kruspe and drummer Christoph Schneider added:

"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.

"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.



This news took the metal world by storm; however, it has not yet been confirmed by any official source. At the moment, allsigns in the sky point to all of this being an elaborate hoax.


Statement by the band (on Rammstein website) on July 19:

Since the rumour did alarm people that Till Lindemann would leave Rammstein after the release of the upcoming album, we are pleased to inform you that after consulting Rammstein manager Emanuel Fialik, the so-called news turns out being a fake.

"Neither Till Lindemann nor another band member plans to leave Rammstein. The band is currently working on the next album and is in an excellent mood. As the greed for news is the actual doping in cycling, this 'news' is only serving those who spread the same. Though the world knows now that EnEsch has moved to Berlin, even the poor EnEsch was shocked by the outlook to have to step into Till Lindemanns footsteps. I hope he and the fans of the band will recover soon from this false report."

I hope it is. It will suck not having him there. But I suppose with the new singer we might get some good music. But still I don't to see him go.

Oh Well , Rammstein had lost it's "true" industrial metal sound in the latest album and turn into sheer sobbing so can anything good be expected from this band anymore if Till leaves or will it have an opposite effect ?

Oh come on I'm sure some half-decent newspaper in Germany would have picked up on that by now! My theory is that it is a marketing scheme for En Esch. They did that with Nightwish announcing that Vibeke Stene was the new vocalist to gain some recognition for Tristania.

I can't really imagine Rammstein continuing if Till were to leave, it would be like ripping the teeth and legs off of a dog - the band would have no more character and would be wobbling to nowhere.

"Rammstein goes Nightwish..." I read it from an Estonian tabloid but since it seemed like a total garbage news(probably fake as well), I decided not to add the news before the band announces it officially themselves....and of course....blabbermouth seems really confidential....

Slick Idiot frontman En Esch has commented on the fake press release that was circulated to internet:

"It's news to me.
Since I have been contacted by many friends and acquaintances about the news that I'm the new singer of rammstein I think I need to set the record straight. although it sounds interesting, it is not true.
I'm working on new Slick Idiot material and am in the midst of mixing tracks for mona mur.
Rammstein and I are and will stay friends and I wish them the best in their future endeavours.
Hope you're all having a great summer,
"

Later,
Esch

I call bullshit until a credible source can verify this. I hope it's not true, I've always had a soft spot for Rammstein. And yes fags, Rammstein IS metal. Pretty decent metal IMO.
