Yesterday turned out to be a hectic day at work and at home, ending with a 250 km/h speed thrill in the Globe arena, presented by the German industrial rocker ensemble going under the name of Rammstein. Myself, Järven, Fisken, BoKo, Mats and Johan went for a few beers before having our hair styles drastically changed by a fire breathing and watt pumping stage set.
It has been said that due to Rammstein’s almost-only-German-language performance, there’s a communications glitch between the group and the audience. In a way, I can agree. On the other hand, I don’t go to concerts to listen to the lead singer of a group debate the weather in Stockholm, or to make political statements, or talk about his personal sexual preferences. I go to concerts to enjoy an experience, preferrably a musical one 🙂
This was the second most powerful (in terms of watt and human energy radiation) concert I’ve been to, the most powerful being having seen Dee Snider live @ the Hard Rock Café of Stockholm several years ago. Rammstein feels much better live than on disc, even if the lyrics and vocal performance is somewhat lost in the almost overpowering sound output.
If you like rock drenched in energy, and have the opportunity, go see them. You can also go to their website for some more information about them.
Rammstein.. Rammstein.. Rammstein!
