Rampant Rumors

Are Rammstein Releasing a Live Recording of Their Infamous 2001 Show in NYC?

Metal Injection has a theory regarding what the video is teasing, and it sounds well-reasoned and plausible enough:

“Our best guess is that it’s a live album/video, considering the band has a song called ‘Amerika’ and there’s a little bit of footage in there possibly indicating that it’s a live release. What’s interesting is there is a shot of the Hammerstein Ballrom with a KRock ad up front. K-Rock, New York’s modern rock station, hasn’t existed for almost a decade now, so chances are, if this is a live DVD it would be of their infamous 2001 show which featured an insane amout of pyro and was one of their final performances in the US for over a decade.”

Which sounds pretty cool to me — all we have to remember that show by now is some crappy bootleg footage:

Presumably, we’ll know the actual contents of In Amerika soon. Stay tuned…
