Rammstein in NJ - May 2011!

Well, she did it again. My friend "Y," has somehow convinced me to go with her to watch the most famous German hard metal band from the other side of the Atlantic, Rammstein. Again. Not that I'm upset or anything. Just curious as to the set of events that lead to this, lol.

We will be at the Izod Center bopping our heads bedsides other metal heads and gearing ourselves for the pyrotechnics that the band so loves.

Rammstein formed in 1994 and has had the same line up ever since. Talk about commitment! They named themselves after the German town, Rammstein-Miesenbach, the site of one of the biggest air show disasters in history. About 70 people died and hundreds were injured. Yup.

Critics are usually divided on their music. Some say they are intense and brutal and encourages...bad stuff. They've had to defend themselves when some said criminals and terrorists were listening to their music. But others say that they are actually humorous and nothing but good entertainment. It's how you, as a listener, translates it. Well, of course.

Rammstein hasn't played in North America for almost 10 years. Part of that is due to the fact that they were banned. And my first time watching them was also their first return to North America. It was...actually quite the experience!
