The untitled seventh studio album by German Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein, also referred to eponymously as Rammstein, was released through Universal Music on 17 May 2019. Their first studio album in ten years, it is their first not to be produced by Jacob Hellner; it was instead produced by Emigrate band member Olsen Involtini. The album was preceded by two singles, "Deutschland" and "Radio", the former becoming their second number-one song in Germany. Ausländer" was released as a single on 31 May.
It’s an amazing-looking three-way split-screen that kind of blows your mind if you think about how it was done. Filmed in the studio usually inhabited by Australian children’s act The Wiggles, and starring Australian pop star Sophie Monk as the whole band’s ex-girlfriend, here’s some camera trickery, some incredibly tight choreography, some old-fashioned theatrical quick-swap kind of things, as well as tearaway pants and an endearingly knackered bunch of flowers.
After more than two decades as one of the most dynamic live acts in rock and roll, Kruspe says that the band decided to return to the studio to divert attention from their peerless showmanship and back to the songs. Pre-production for Rammstein’s seventh studio album first began with some low stakes rehearsals and writing sessions back in 2015. All of a sudden, there’s a certain kind of respect that I always missed a little bit. We just had good chemistry, which reminded me of the first time when we started.
The untitled ninth studio album by American rapper Nas, commonly referred to eponymously as Nas, was released on July 15, 2008 by The Jones Experience and Def Jam Recordings. Its original title Nigger was changed due to controversy surrounding the racial epithet. The album is distinguished for its political content, diverse sources of production, and provocative subject matter. The album features guest appearances from Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Busta Rhymes, and The Game, among others.
Despite being one of heavy music’s biggest and most dynamic live acts, that same fan devotion has never quite translated to the band’s recording career. Ask an average rock fan to name a few Rammstein songs, and most would likely get stuck at Du Hast. The Verdict: Rammstein’s untitled seventh studio album marks a triumphant return, and lives up to Kruspe’s desire to present the band beyond its reputation as a magnificent live act. There is a key focus on melody amid the grandeur and forcefulness of the music, along with thought-provoking lyrics (translated from German) that deal with pain, passion, controversy, and sensuality.
DiS' Chris Power gets a first listen to LCD Soundsystem 's forthcoming untitled album. Just over three years after their magnificent second LP, Sound of Silver, LCD Soundsystem return with their as yet untitled third and, if recent statements by bandleader James Murphy are to be believed, final album.
The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, Nas' fifth to do so. It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for shipments of 500,000 copies in the United States.
Before the as-yet-untitled album is released to wreak havoc upon the world, however, Manson is set to join Rob Zombie for the Twins of Evil: Hell Never Dies summer tour, and maybe even publishing a long-anticipated coffee table book of his paintings. Are there any younger musicians in 2019 who embody that kind of attitude for you? Well, you've got people like this guy I just met a couple weeks ago, Machine Gun Kelly - he's the real deal. You do sound like you're in a pretty good place.
