That Sound? That Was The Internet Exploding
That sound you just heard? That was the internet exploding in a hail of guitars. Suddenly, everywhere on the internet is awash in the same rumor:
Emanuel Fialik of Pilgrim Management GmbH, which represents German industrial metal pioneers RAMMSTEIN, has issued the following press release:
"On the 13th of July 2007 the industrial gothic top act RAMMSTEIN announces that after the release of the next studio album, which is about to get finished, the current singer and frontman Till Lindemann will leave the band...
..."The new singer which was found and signed to be the new RAMMSTEIN frontman is the co-founder and ex-member of the electro industrial act KMFDM and current singer of SLICK IDIOT — En Esch — who recently moved to Berlin to join the band.
If true, it must be said that that's a combination with that's potential. And En Esch has desperately needed someone to rein him in since he left KMFDM. But most importantly? Given Rammstein's predilections for setting things (especially lead singers) on fire, here's a suggestion for all the metal press out there: whatever you do, DO NOT ASK En Esch about that time his apartment caught on fire.
Trust me on this.
