Quite a while ago it came out that one of the members of Rammstein, Richard Kruspe-Bernstein, had embarked on a side project and we had to suffer through all the wild (unsupported) claims of them breaking up and suchlike which has obviously not happened. In fact in an interview it was mentioned that having an alternate outlet for his creativity meant that he wasn't trying to pull them in different directions, which meant less friction within the band, which made them less likely to break up.
Anyway, we are on the verge of seeing the results of his project with the release of Emigrate's first album. I've heard three of the songs so far (My World, Babe, and Wake Up) and I'm actually rather impressed, it all sounds really good. 31st August is a release date to put in the diary.
The last two have a video made of clips from Völkerball and Live Aus Berlin, so they show Rammstein not just Richard and they have nothing to do with the actual song. Some very nice clips though :-)
