Rammstein 'almost split' in studio"
Rammstein Guitarist Richard Kruspe has told Kerrang! that the band almost went their separate ways during the recording of their sixth studio album.
"This record was one of the biggest roller coasters of our lives." says Kruspe "Many times we did not believe we'd be able to finish this record. there was a lot of tension. our chemistry is really destructive: there are a lot of fights, a lot of aggression and frustrations to make a record. "at the end of the day, we have to have that, otherwise it wouldn't be Rammstein" he adds. " yet when you're in that situation it is frustrating and you don't want to deal with it. it's a tough thing, to deal with this chemistry. but it is important to have this energy otherwise it wouldn't be a good record"
Now the as-yet-untitled 11 track follow up to 2005's Rosenrot is finally completed, Kruspe reveals that the mood in the Rammstein camp could not be better.
" at the moment,everyone is amazed that the direction is so great" He smiles." I'm amazed that people are so impressed by the record. I was like 'Really?' I lost that connection, i didn't know anymore and my view changed from month to month but now people are calling it 'The Black album of Rammstein'
