Rammstein Are Going To Be Strange and “Unusual” On Next Album

Rammstein has been keeping us in the dark regarding a follow up to their 2009 album Liebe Ist Für Alle Da but that’s okay because guitarists Paul Landers and Richard Kruspe threw us a bone. In an exclusive interview with Metal Hammer Magazine, Kruspe and Landers filled people in with the album’s progress and said that they would create a new and blend “unusual methods,” in the mysterious seventh album, which is Rammstein terms, it can be ANYTHING.

“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.” Said Landers about their desire to reinvent themselves in their upcoming album. “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.”

Kruspe added that they were waiting for frontman Till Lindemann to finish the “mysterious ideas” they have. All I have to say to that is MY BODY IS READY and so should yours! Be sure to see these iconic pyros this summer on their short North American tour and for those that are in the west coast, be sure to get your tickets to their only west coast show in Sin City at the T-Mobile Arena on July 1. Read the whole interview and order your copy of Metal Hammer.

Behemoth Will Awake In 2018

Guitarist/vocalist of Behemoth Adam “Nergal” Darski said in an interview with online music station Rockhok that they have about a dozen songs in development for their follow up album. Darski also stated that they are shooting for a fall 2018 release to their 2014 follow-up to their successful The Satanist album.

“We’re taking it easy it’s not tense whatsoever but we have 10 or 13 songs already like sketches of the new songs. Times flying and we are super stoked about this new stuff its like, I like the approach with Behemoth too you know because when I went from this to do Behemtoth songs, I was super hungry.” Said Darski as he tried to find the right words to describe his desire to play metal again. “I was like hungry for doing like this you know radical, you know, sounds and I really hope it sounds different again but it’s refreshing and it’s something we’re defining and rejuvenating in what we do with Behemoth again.”

We are just as excited and borderline speechless as Darski when it comes to Behemoth.

King 810 Will Turn Heads With ‘La Petite Mort’

In the spirit of celebrating the French phrase used to describe an orgasm and their track, “La Petite Mort,” King 810 has recruited three porn stars for the NSFW video. The band has been teasing fans with eight second clips on their Twitter and if you’re still a little hot and bothered, check out their peepshow. It will be interesting to see exactly how the Michigan metallers will portray “La Petite Mort” since the song itself is dark and gets real and far from sexy. We won’t know exactly what’s up with this video till its premiere in the world famous PornHub sometime in the future. I will get to the bottom of this to answer this burning question people have…I will not rest till I do! But for now start the foreplay with their latest album La Petite Mort Or A Conversation With God which is out now via Roadrunner Records.
