RAGE has issued the following update revealing the title of their forthcoming album:

"At the moment, Peavy, Victor and Andrй are working with high pressure at their new album, with the working title "Carved in Stone".

"Carved in Stone" is also the title of a new song, a super hymn, which could open the live shows in future. More titles are (under reserve): Open My Grave (very heavy & dark), One Step Ahead, Long Hard Road and Without You. There are much more songs, we'll tell you more about, soon.

The music is very catchy, and compared with the last output, straight-lined. Due to Andrйs way of playing the drums, a newer wind came into. Most of the lyrics deal with critically notes to anxiously, socially developments."

RAMMSTEIN - Fake rumours of Till Lindemann leaving the band!!

RAMMSTEIN have posted the following upadate on their official site:

"Since the rumour did alarm people that Till Lindemann would leave Rammstein after the release of the upcoming album, we are pleased to inform you that after consulting Rammstein manager Emanuel Fialik, the so-called news turns out being a fake.

Neither Till Lindemann nor another band member plans to leave Rammstein. The band is currently working on the next album and is in an excellent mood. As the greed for news is the actual doping in cycling, this 'news' is only serving those who spread the same. Though the world knows now that EnEsch has moved to Berlin, even the poor EnEsch was shocked by the outlook to have to step into Till Lindemanns footsteps. I hope he and the fans of the band will recover soon from this false report."
