This CD is one of a set of three interview CDs based around Reise, Reise.
Below are all of the questions asked by the interviewer. The answers can be heard here.
- 1. What was the atmosphere like in the studio when you were recording the new album?
- 2. Was it a personal crisis?
- 3. So was there a different working relationship between the band members this time?
- 4. Would you say there are any certain musical things you simply can't do within the context of the band?
- 5. Is this the most varied & adventurous album you've made so far?
- 6. Schneider, you seem to have approached the drumming in a bit of a different way; would it be fair to say that your style on 'Reise, Reise' is altogether more 'natural'?
- 7. Speaking of 'developing as a drummer', tell us a bit about 'Keine Lust' ('No Desire')...
- 8. And 'Dalai Lama'? That seems to veer in a new direction too...
- 9. Do you think that some of the more diehard fans will be surprised by the diversity of the new album?
- 10. It's been three years, of course, since the release of your last studio album, so I guess people might expect a bit of a fresh take on things musically...
- 11. Let's focus on the 'Mein Teil' video for a moment, as it sees the band interpreting the music in a number of different ways. Schneider, have you always wanted to dress up as a woman?!
- 12. Some of the scenes in the video were shot on the streets of Berlin - did anyone mistake you for a genuine woman?
- 13. Richard, you're doing battle with yourself in the video - how did you find such an excellent lookalike?
- 14. Were you a strong wrestler when you were young?
- 15. One of the remixes of 'Mein Teil' has been done by the Pet Shop Boys. Were you surprised that they were keen to work on a track as heavy as this?
- 16. 'Mein Teil' can be translated into English in a host of different ways. How do you choose to translate it..?
- 18. And finally, Rammstein isn't really a political band, but is there a particular message that you're keen to put across?
