Once in a great while these people we call Germans come to America to blow things up and spread their fascist derision to the masses. On May 15th, 2011 Germans came to the Seattle area in the form of Rammstein. After WWII Germany was cast underground only to thrive as a subterranean culture, hellbent on steel works, mining, petroleum disposal, and nuclear waste burning. Rammstein is a musical expression of this dwarven-like culture that has been tricked into appearing onstage for Americans to show us the vast dangers of fucking with people like Patton, Eisenhower, and Churchill.
Now that you have some background on Rammstein, let me tell you more about this cultural exercise. First off it was loud. When the musical genre of heavy metal is blended with overtly aggressive males whom have been fed heavy metals throughout their lives it tends to make a biped that expresses a rowdy plethora of sounds. The orchestral quality was magnificent, which means Brahms' genes are still in the German pool.
Sadly, it would some seem other personalities are swimming in the gene pool in Germany. I won't utter the name, but at one point one of the band members, whom most likely had gypsy blood coursing through his veins, was beat then thrown into a metal bathtub. The lead singer then stood on a platform 500 feet in the air above the stage with a metal milk jug in his hands. The milk jug contained a mixture of napalm and magnesium sulphate, which was poured into the bathtub resulting in massive explosions and the extermination of the gypsy band member.
Another interesting aspect of German culture is their means of population control. The caves of Germany can only hold so many people, so there is a lottery (not the good kind) at birth. Those whom are chosen are disposed of much like the Spartan culture. Germans being a people of brute science and reason don't just put the babies in a jar on a cliff to die from the sun, they implant laser beams to their eyes and hang them from a crane, which then randomly blows them up like tiny Timmy and Susie grenades. NatGeo really needs to get footage of this for their Taboo series.
All in all Rammstein was a mind-blowing experience, not just in sound, but also cultural awareness. If you love heavy metal like me, then they are a must see, because nothing is more metal than cave dwelling steelworkers with nuclear poisoning.
