RAMMSTEIN will release a concert film masterpiece on May 19 titled “RAMMSTEIN: PARIS”
Official pre-sales for the concert film “RAMMSTEIN: PARIS” have begun ahead of its worldwide release on May 19.
The movie, to be released in many configurations, sets new standards in production and ambition.
In March 2012, during the “Made in Germany” tour the Swedish film director [and Bathory musician] Jonas Åkerlund shot two acclaimed Rammstein concerts at the Palais Omnisports arena in Paris in front of 17,000 spectators.
The show featured 22 songs from the band’s repertoire, the resulting film is not only the most striking collection of imagery — of the most successful German rock band of our generation — but also a masterpiece of music cinema, capturing Rammstein’s unique forcefulness as well as the complete sensory experience.
Åkerlund is notorious for his revolutionary, innovative video clips for bands such as The Prodigy, Metallica, the Rolling Stones.
Cockeyed details, perpendicular perspectives, reflex of contrast and mental confusion are themes that flash through his music productions.
In “RAMMSTEIN: PARIS” Åkerlund abides by this showy style from the outset. At the concert Rammstein played for 128 mins from “Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen?” the first song from the very first album, to “Fruhling in Paris” from the last studio album “Liebe ist für alle da”.
Aesthetically and creatively staged “RAMMSTEIN: PARIS” is one of the greatest rock concert films of all time.
