Eins, Zwei, Drei, Gehen! (One, two, three, Go!) The crazy German Pyrotechs of Rammstein is releasing 2 previously recorded unreleased singles off the “Mutter” (Mother 2001) album. A 5 song disc that features a different side of them. Known for their insane bizarre lyrics, risky music videos and amazing stage performances endangering their lives with fire, shooting confetti & foam at the crowd, nothing seems sufficient to describe how incredibly unique and great this band is. They have thousands of fans all over the world even know probably 80% of so don’t speak German and have no idea what they’re talking about. I think that’s enough evidence to say they area INCREDIBLE & everyone knows it.
The cd is short but sweet, it has two songs on it “Mein Herz Brennt” which has been re-done in 4 different styles. (Now for all of us who don’t speak German the title of the song means My heart is Burning.) Each song has been interpreted in different ways making it unique and the other track is called “Gib mir deine Augen” (“Give me your Eyes“).
We begin with the soft delicate sound of Mein Herz Brennt (Piano Version). German is a very harsh intense language when spoken but Till Lindemann did an amazing job. The song is very powerful & soft at the same time, its simple yet sweet. “Gib mir deine Augen,” has a very cool piano intro followed by some heavy guitar rifts. The song is catchy in classic Rammstein style. Mein Herz Brennt (Video Edit) is obviously the version of the song that they used on their music video which if you watch its insane. There’s a lot going on in the video and it will leave you confused but shocked as every video that they have ever made. But this style of the song is great because there are other instruments in the mix and it makes a huge difference and the song sounds more intense. Get your giant platform boots, your cyber dreds, goggles and get to the dance floor. The industrial mix of Mein Herz Brennt (Boys noize remix) is very sick and will make you want to dance. There’s nothing better than dancing to a Rammstein song and really feeling that body beat. Finally to close things off Mein Herz Brennt (Piano Instrumental) this version of the song has no vocals, it’s just the pure magnificent piano. Its deep, beautiful and stands out all alone.
Über all dem 5-Song-Disc ist genial (Over all the 5 song disc is awesome). Rammstein-Fans gehen raus und bekommen es (Rammstein fans go out there and get it)!
