Ramming Stone

I've been on a bit of a Rammstein kick lately, and it's been a while since I blogged, so I figured I'd share some of my favourite songs/videos, since I've got nothing else interesting going on. These 3 songs, I think, really show Rammstein's range and power.

Rosenrot, from the album Rosenrot.

Mein Teil,from the album Reise, Reise. Something a little harder.

Lastly, Ohne Dich, also from the album Reise, Reise. The lyrics of this song (which itself translates as 'Without you') are really quite sad. Take the first verse...

Ich werde in die Tannen gehen
Dahin wo ich sie zuletzt gesehen
Doch der Abend wirft ein Tuch aufs Land
und auf die Wege hinterm Waldesrand
Und der Wald er steht so schwarz und leer
Weh mir, oh weh
Und die Vögel singen nicht mehr


I'm going to go into the fir trees
There where I last saw her
But the evening is throwing a cloth upon the land
and upon the ways behind the edge of the forest
And the forest it is so black and empty
Woe is me, oh woe
And the birds sing no more
