Rammstein Ready New Live Album and Concert Film
Watch the trailer for 'Rammstein: Paris' now
Published Mar 24, 2017Rammstein's live show has astounded listeners for years, but if you've never had a chance to see their pyrotechnics displays in person, you'll be able to take it in from the comfort of your own home with new live album and film.
Rammstein: Paris will be released as both a live album on CD and concert DVD, as well as digitally, on May 19. Directed by Jonas Åkerlund (Metallica, the Rolling Stones, the Prodigy) the film is said to showcase "absurd details, upended perspectives, shocks of contrast, and sensory confusion."
Åkerlund shot the film over the course of two shows the band played at the Palais Omnisports arena in front of a crowd of 17,000 people. He also used 30 cameras in the process.
"This is a two-hour-20-minute show, and I take the footage and cut it with the same precision that I would a three- or four-minute music video," Åkerlund said. "Even with a big crew of editors, it took us over a year to nail down the edit."
Rammstein's last proper studio album came in 2009 with Liebe Ist Für Alle Da. They'll be at Montebello Rockfest this summer as part of a string of North American tour dates.
