The strange obliqueness of Rammstein has given them an edge on the Goth metal circuit these last few years. Simply drawing on the strange texture of the German language and placing up against dark driving anthemic rock and a growly delivery. They are fascination and it will be interesting to see what kind of crowd turns up for their show in June with ACDC. Mutter is a stripped down affair and shows off how tight the group has become musically. Unlike groups who butcher the English language, there are few of us who choose to chant along with German lyrics of unclear meaning, then again, these aren’t sappy love songs either.
