Rammstein to begin mixing new album; three-year tour planned
German metal giants Rammstein are working on their first album in 10 years - next month they will start mixing it (probably with the help of Rich Costey, who worked with Rage Against the Machine and Muse), according to guitarist Richard Kruspe.
Kruspe in a recent interview said:
Music-wise, I think it’s richer when it comes to harmonies and melodies. That was also something that I was trying to do, because in the past, every time you talked about Rammstein, it’s all about this big burden about the show and the fire. Nobody really talks about the music, which is, to me, as a [music] writer, kind of a slap in your face. It was also important to me that we kind of step up, music-wise, in a way. It’s almost like Rammstein 3D, I would describe it.
Earlier this fall, guitarist Paul Landers suggested in an interview with "Music Radar" that the album would be out in the spring of 2019. And, according to Kruspe, after the album's release the band will be on tour for three years straight.
