Till Lindemann (Rammstein) Allegedly Accused Of Assault

Reports are coming our of German news outlets that Till Lindemann, the frontman of Rammstein has been accused of assaulting a man at a hotel in a short altercation.

According to the reports, the incident occurred on June 8th 2019 at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich, Germany following Rammstein’s performance in the city earlier that evening.

In an article published by German newspaper Bild that has been translated by The PRP, has reported that the altercation came after the unidentified 54-year-old man approached Lindemann and his female companion, telling her “I would pay double for you.”

Lindemann the confronted the man and asked him to apologise to the female after implying that she was a prostitute. The man then attempted to direct Lindemann to the outside of the hotel to fight.

It is here when Lindemann allegedly struck the man in the face with his elbow, which resulted in leaving him with a nosebleed, then  Lindemann leaving to his hotel room.

Music Video Roundup 07/06/19

It’s 4PM on a Friday! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks.

The first band on this weeks roundup are The Dangerous Summer. They’re gearing up for the released of their sixth record, ‘Mother Nature’ as they’ve released a video in which one mans attempts to learn to surf. Check out ‘Bring Me Back To Life’ below.

 

We’re moving to Las Vegas for the band Amarionette as they’re getting into their own sound with the video of ‘No Control’. It’s a follow up to their Spring release ‘Compromise’ which also featured Kurt Travis (Ex-Dance Gavin Dance)

 

How about some Liverpool Emo? Decay has recently dropped a video for ‘Slow Decline’, the bands new single off their upcoming EP, ‘Modern Conversation’.

Vocalist Danny Reposar has said:

“This song tells the story of how my mother’s death affected my dad. I watched him lose interest in everything and fall victim to excessive drinking. As time went on he’d lock himself in the house and drink the days away hoping to forget about his grief and erase the past three years. It’s a song for anyone that’s had to watch the people around them wither and fade; it’s for the people that don’t come from that perfect home. Your situation doesn’t define you.”

 

British metalcore favourites Heart Of A Coward are continuing their appetite for destruction in their video for ‘Ritual’. This is the third single which features on their forthcoming record, ‘The Disconnect’ which will be the first record with Kaan Tasan (No Consequence)

 

Next is a track from their latest record, ‘End Of Suffering’ which was shot by Kate Cox, it is the fantastic Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.

“I was inspired by Frank’s commitment to create safe spaces for women at gigs,” says Kate. “I always want to create female-driven narratives so when I heard the track and had the idea of female vampires living in a seaside town, transforming men into more female vamps we both instantly knew it was right for Kitty Sucker! It has been an absolute dream to work with such a talented creatively generous band.“

Check out ‘Kitty Sucker’ below.

 

Moving to Dublin, the three-piece Bitch Falcon have debuted a huge new track. ‘Panther’ is out now but here’s something more.

“Panther is about being blind in the present,” says vocalist Lizzie, “letting everything around you move on as you sit dwelling in numbness. It’s a realisation that you’re stuck in between your emotions and physical reactions come first before really understanding how you feel “Only the tears spilled show me what I want.”

 

Switching things way up to death metal this time is the legendary Cannibal Corpse. They’re a band known for their dark videos but here the video sees adult performs in POV attacking and killing each other in a gruesome way.

 

Keeping things on the heavyish side of things, I’m moving to the legendary Papa Roach where back when they toured the UK, they shot a video for their latest single, ‘Not The Only One’. the video shows vocalist Jacoby Shaddix cycling down streets in a race against time for their set!

 

Everyone at this point knows just who Man With A Mission are, right? They’ve just released a huge new EP called ‘Remember Me’ and it just so happens that the title track is their new music video.

 

And finally, we have to go with some legends. That is the only amazing, trailblazing and utterly fabulous Rammstein. They’ve just released their latest self-titled record but this is their last video before its release.

And that’s it for another week of music video roundup. Don’t forget to check back next week at 4PM sharp for another countdown of ten of the best recent music videos to feast your eyes upon. There’s also new posts every day on the Almost anything Media so be sure to check out anything that might catch your eye.

 

 

Music Video Roundup 10/05/2019

It’s 4PM and it’s Friday! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. First up is up and coming artist Kim Jennet who has a video for her new single, ‘Unbroken’ which comes off her upcoming yet to be announced solo record.

 

Up next are the Pennsylvanian metal band Motionless In White. They have a haunting new video for ‘Disguise’, which is the title track of their upcoming full-length fifth record. Warning! It isn’t for the faint-hearted.

 

Shifting to the Punk and Electro project BAIT, there’s a video which has recently been released for the track, ‘DLP’.

“BAIT isn’t just music, it’s ventilation, it’s expression through art. We all have a voice and this one speaks from the guy in broken English. I record my own music, I edit my own videos, I design my own covers and I work with people I love and respect… because I have to and because I want to.’

 

Shifting the focus to metalcore, Polar have some satanic force for ‘Devil’, a new cut from their latest record, ‘Nova’. The track is about the liars and cheats the plague our lives”, sees a seemingly invisible character walking the streets and bringing out the worst in the people that he passes. Let’s have a look.

 

London based Punks Petrol Girls have a teaser for their upcoming record, ‘Cut & Stitch’. The track and video are both in collaboration with the Solidarity Not Silence organisation. Ren Aldridge (vocals) has said:

“Thematically, ‘Big Mouth’ follows on from our previous single, ‘The Sound’. But it focuses in on voice as a physical sound that comes directly from our bodies, and also more generally as self-expression. There’s a lot of politics around who is heard and what that means, and many marginalised groups are only tolerated when they’re quiet. When they refuse this containment and control, they’re met with attempts to silence them. Just one example of this is the defamation case which aims to silence the Solidarity Not Silence girls – a group of women who each separately spoke out against the behaviour of a man in the music industry. Whilst the case is ongoing, we are limited in what we can say about it, but encourage everyone to spread the word and donate to the crowdfunding campaign for their legal costs. They are determined to not allow their case to set a precedent for silencing marginalised voices in the music industry and beyond. There’s no legal aid for this kind of case – they need money to pay for their legal representation in order to pursue justice. You can get a Solidarity Not Silence t-shirt, as worn by Joe in the ‘Big Mouth’ music video.”

 

Next, I have to write about this one. It’s been everywhere. Yes, it’s the Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie collaboration, ‘ME!’. I had to post this one, come on, don’t hold it against me.

Rumours circulated ahead of the release with Brendon sharing:  “Wait. This really happened?! Like for real?!?! Well I can’t begin to describe how incredible it has been to work on this song and video. So I will simply say: Thank you Taylor Swift for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful story. So much fuckin love and respect.”

Check out the video below.

 

Now, it’s been three years since Angels & Airwaves released their first piece of new music, and that was their 2016 EP, ‘Chasing Shadows’! Now, that is a long while! Their new single ‘Rebel Girl’ is out now and it’s off their upcoming full-length record. On the track, Tom DeLonge has said:

“’Rebel Girl’ is a space-age love song that combines my enduring obsession for New Wave, pop punk and anthemic rock and roll music… As some of you might’ve heard, I recently took a brief minute to start up an aerospace company, so you never know – I may play this song from a satellite deep in space, beamed toward everyone’s house viciously on repeat.”

 

Blessthefall has some live performance which are turning out to being legendary apparently, but they’re just stepping up everything as a band if this new video for ‘Welcome Home’ is anything to go by, we know everyone loves a good taste of the Pheonix metalcore group!

 

New Years Day are well and truly back! They’ve recently dropped their new video for ‘Shut Up’, which has some similarities to American Psycho, because of course! I mean, it’s New Years Day. Would we expect anything less from them?

Speaking on the video, Ash Costello has said:

“When we recorded the song ‘Shut Up’ I knew right then and there, on that day, straight away, what I wanted to do if we were ever to make a music video for it. It came to me immediately. So when the time came and ‘Shut Up’ was chosen for a music video, I was thrilled because it meant that I’d get to make my vision come to life, which was to recreate one of my favourite horror movies of all time, ‘American Psycho’”.

 

I had to save this for last. The well-dressed German masters Rammstein are legendary, aren’t they? Everything seems turned to eleven when they release something, as if it’s a huge day because of that release. And that’s just what this video is for our last pick of the music video roundup.

Check out ‘Radio’ below.

Music Video Roundup 05/04/19

It’s 4PM on a Friday! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. The first track is a cover from New Found Glory, and the track? ‘This Is Me’ from The Greatest Showman ut the video?? Erm… we’ll let you decide on it.

 

Now, following on the news of their debut record, ‘Fragments’, Sister Shotgun have had their lead single released and a brand new video produced by Mockingbird Studios. Vocalist Chloe Ozwell on the track has said:

“The song takes me back to a place where I was really vulnerable, but it’s about reclaiming my power. I hope it can serve as a reminder to keep pushing no matter what life throws at you.”

 

Moving to some Pop-Punk goodness for the next track, we have some Aussie newcomers on UNFD in the form of Yours Truly and this track is off their upcoming EP, ‘Afterglow’ set to be released on April 12th.

 

We’re going to switch things up again and go for some Post-Metal mayhem from Pleiades which will be the first cut from their upcoming EP and the follow up to their 2016 debut, ‘Symptoms Of The Human Being’.

Vocalist Andy Calderbank has said:

“‘All At Your Mercy’ is lyrically about control and the catharsis we feel when we finally give it up. As Humans, we welcome consequence, reluctantly accept responsibility and approach the future with caution. I guess you could describe it as Agnosiophobia or the fear of not knowing what will happen.”

 

And shifting the focus to some Emo Rockers, we’ll be having some Free Throw in this weeks list. They’ve recently released ‘Today Is Especially Delicious’ from their record ‘What’s Past is Prologue’ and there’s one thing which it does have a lot of. Fruit.

 

Next, Ahead of their tour across Europe, Japanese metalcore group Crystal Lake have given fans a taste of their music in the form of ‘Hail To The Fire’ which is just the latest track to off ‘Helix’ which saw an official release outside of their home country just last month.

 

Shall we try a different country for the next video? Ukrainian hitters Jinjer have a visual spectacle for us all in their live performance for ‘Teacher, Teacher’. This is the fourth single off their EP, ‘Micro’ and on the track, the band have said:

 

Moving back to Britain to the Alt Rock scene are the newcomers in Ruled By Raptors who were born from the ashes of Digits and the South East Northumberland band have some energy to give in the form of their track, ‘Time’.

 

For the penultimate video this week, I’ve chosen to go with Grandson. Recently the socially conscious artist has recently announced he’s playing a warm-up show for Slam Dunk Festival on May 22nd at London’s Underworld and May 23rd at The Glasgow Cathouse. Now though, he’s recently released a video for ‘Apologize’ which is the lead single off his most recent EP, ‘a modern tragedy, vol.2’.

 

And for the final post, we’re going for controversy, we’re going for industrial kings which can only point to one giant band, Rammstein. The German superstars recently announcing their long-awaited self-titled record which is set to be released on May 17th via UME / Spinefarm. With the announcement came with the music video which has caused controversy among Jewish leaders in Germany with eh commissioner of anti-Semitism in Germany saying: “I consider this a tasteless exploitation of artistic freedom,”

 

And that’s it for another week of music video roundup. Don’t forget to check back next week at 4PM sharp for another countdown of ten of the best recent music videos to feast your eyes upon.
