Whenever a Till Lindemann-fronted project takes a visual stance, you know you’re in for something bizarre. And probably controversial. 2015 welcomed in Lindemann, a project conceived from the minds of the Rammstein singer and Peter Tägtgren. The music is about what you would expect, it’s a form of industrial nestled understandably between Pain and Rammstein. Nothing overwhelming, but certainly entertaining. We’ve already talked about the music video for “Praise Abort” from the debut album Skills In Pills, so we may as well take a look at the equally as fucked up music video for “Fish On.”
Skills in Pills shouldn’t be as mediocre as it is. Think about it: Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann joining forces with Pain and Hypocrisy mastermind Peter Tägtgren for an industrial supergroup? That’s not an equation that should spell disaster. But with their new project Lindemann, they’ve found a way there, giving us a mostly half-assed effort that, while not without its occasional redeeming qualities, represents far less than either’s best effort.

We like Rammstein more than a little bit here at Nine Circles. So when folks in the band start pursuing other projects, we take note—particularly when one of said other projects involves vocalist Till Lindemann teaming up with Hypocrisy mastermind Peter Tägtgren. That’s what we’ve got here with Lindemann, who’ll be releasing their debut album, Skills in Pills, later this month. To whet our appetites, the duo have released a promo video for “Praise Abort.” It’s all kinds of messed up—which, to be fair, is kind of what you’d expect. Continue reading
I was told that this is going to be our 500th post. I could easily take a look at hour history to verify, but I would much rather do nothing and assume those words are true. So, that in mind, go us! Happy fucking Monday, ya assholes!
- Lindemann has offered a taste of his new solo work. For those that need a refresher, Till Lindemann has team up with Peter Tagtgren for a project titled, simply, Lindemann. Those 40 seconds sounded exactly as I would expect them too.
- Why wait another week? Enslaved has made their entire new album, In Times, available for streaming. I encourage you all to get on this shit IMMEDIATELY.
- Septicflesh will be running through North America this spring with Moonspell and Deathstars. Actually, a reasonably solid lineup. I could dabble.
- This was big news this weekend. Dimebag Darrell’s grave was desecrated and the responsible party’s appear to be tied to Nuclear Hellfrost (who nobody gives a fuck about). The ex-lead singer issued a statement taking full responsibility. Internet world, you know what to do.
- On a more positive note, how about a new track from Faith No More? This one is called “Superhero”.
I enjoy it. Sol Invictus will be out May 19th.
