Of course, you need not imagine this man. Richard Kruspe has with Rammstein reaches of something that most musicians: platinum albums, toured internationally in almost every country in the world, the recognition of the feature pages of tens of thousands as well as the fans. But there is another Richard Kruspe as the one who is in the limelight at Rammstein. Emigrate to the published in 2007 debut of his solo project Surprised guitarist first. As multifaceted singer dÜstermelancholischer industrial and metal songs
Kruspe expanded his musical spectrum - and rose with "Emigrate"Straight into the Top Ten of the German charts. Even then it was clear fOr Kruspe that Emigrate should remain no fluke. For him had fun working in loosely tied together with guitarist and producer Olson Involtini as Arnaud Giroux (Bass) made. "I can not say exactly why, but somehow I always wanted to do at least two plates Emigrate" says Kruspe. The time has come: will appear on 17 October 2014. "Silent So Long"The long-awaited second Emigrate album.
In addition to proven comrades Involtini and Giroux, and drummer Mikko Siren could Kruspe fOr the production of the album of an impressive pool of international top stars and colleagues draw, whose participation the album had become a hard rock jam in a class, as it has not seen before him. So give to "Silent So Long" Lemmy from Motörhead, Marylin Manson, Jonathan Davis from corn and Peaches the micro in the hand. "The basic idea is Emigrate to work with new people to enter unfamiliar territory, other worlds to discover," says Kruspe. But even if the team spirit is at the forefront in Emigrate, it is at the end, especially Richard Kruspe's voice that holds together the versatile plant: The guitarist has matured significantly in recent years as a singer, he has gained in structure, character and urgency.
It was not originally planned that Kruspe sings at Emigrate itself. "The origin of Emigrate is an idea of till Lindemann and myself for a joint project outside Rammstein back, we had a few years ago, "says Kruspe. It was about to break out a bit from the usual structures to work low-threshold. At some point the two, however, clear that the result probably too much of Rammstein recalls would -. and so had Richard Kruspe ran itself "in Rammstein I had only backgound vocals sung" he recalls, "I had to familiarize myself only times".
An experience that has not recently led to a significant increase in respect for the achievements of the singer in a rock band: "Over the years I have perhaps some of the singers with whom I have worked, fucked too hard, that's clear to me now become the. human voice is the most sensitive instrument Ever since nothing is at your fingertips. " But even if some residual uncertainty remains today, as he says: Richard Kruspe has since fought through. There are those experiences that have inspired him during the production of the album again. Not least because the work on "Silent So Long" Kruspe reminded again and again to its origins in the East Berlin punk scene.
"There was such a time in the East, where everyone has made with any music and every week new bands emerged," he says. "From this phase resulted my desire at Emigrate to feature musical guests. After the turn, the namely has completely set and it has really changed to this day: people have extreme fear of contact, spontaneously to work together, particularly in Berlin. In America it is different and this original spirit of punk in terms of collaborations I would love to go back a little pick. So it made me very happy that I was able to realize Concerning this plate some great collaborations. "
But those of you thinking, Lemmy and the others had accidentally hung with Kruspe together in the basement and added brandy songs between a couple of bottles, fails to recognize the enormous problems that it brings with it to synchronize the schedules of people of this caliber. And so it was fOr Kruspe not least an enormous patience exercise, match the pictures of the celebrity guests. For a time, from some really good anecdotes him not least remained in my memory.
Because not all guests had the best memories of Kruspe: "When I met Lemmy for the last time I gave him a guitar carved on the head and he is very angry, like from the stage," says Kruspe recalls laughing. However, hidden behind the former guitar attack any evil intent: The Motorhead frontman was simply at the wrong time, wrong place. Kruspe got during a Rammstein-Show successively served three detuned guitars and became so angry that he the last of them hurled into the corner - where they landed on the head of the standing edge of the stage Lemmy Kilmisters.
Lemmy has certainly been brought very different things behind and quickly agreed to, as Kruspe invited him to join. "Lemmy was by all guests almost at least complicated," the principal says. While he had rows cancel concerts due to health problems, the MOTÖRHEAD man tried the studio and finished the ultra tight up-tempo cracker "rock City"With a particular variant straßenkÖterrÄudigen its unique trademark vocals." When you grow up with such people, "says Kruspe," it's a cool feeling, suddenly work with so somebody like Lemmy be allowed. These are memories that I'll take to my grave. "
The recording Marylin Manson, the Kruspe knew of a joint appearance during the Echo Awards, was ready to this date. After months of back and forth, and a failed attempt, Manson finally sang his contribution "Hypothetical" in a studio in Los Angeles. Not only here developed Kruspe creative use Distances: while guests like Peaches and Frank delle from Seeed just passed in Kruspe's Berlin studio, the contribution of Jonathan Davies (grain) has been prepared as a team with Kruspe during an escalating email session. The result is the title track that ends the album with a dark industrial Gewummer and an anthemic, reminiscent of Faith No More chorus, which fits perfectly with Davis.
In general, the main work was on "Silent So Long"Already more or less finished, as were added guests. In the style of a musical director Kruspe was inspired by his own songs and Informed respectively after their completion, which guest at what song would fit. Begun the hard work had already 2012, as Kruspe in course of a long labor-intensive summer began cleaning out his archive and to check Older ideas for suitability. for this purpose, one must know that the guitarist virtually continuously writes on tours as well as in every free minute in his Berlin studio.
This tons of material had accumulated over the years, now refined the guitarist together with Involtini and Giroux and compacted to the first demos for the planned album. Later in "Silent So Long" during various sessions in Studio Kruspe and the old radio building in Berlin, Nalepastrasse was completed before Richard Kruspe together the work in Los Angeles with Ben Grosse (Filter, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Depeche Mode et al) abmischte.
Up to this point the entire production process for a professional with Kruspe's background was traced more or less clear. For years Kruspe deals with recording technology, which puts him in a position to maintain control over all matters of such a mammoth project to the end. Relatives broke new ground Kruspe However, as indicated, in writing the lyrics and melodies.
Now one must of course not imagine someone like Richard Kruspe as classical singer-songwriter. But there were important issues that he wanted to negotiate Concerning this plates. "It has a certain basic constellation in itself," he says. "There are issues that simply vibrate in me. I'm sure no Tom Petty who can tell stories, but I like to play with symbols and ambiguities and feel lyrically rather at someone like Trent Reznor at home."
Kruspe works associatively only developed a reef, then a melody, finally stuck first words. So he had ideas and concrete ideas, in their implementation helped him a fellow copywriter. "This has a lot to do with intention," he says. "I myself have several times tempted to put me and to write a text from A to Z. But for me the result rather of moods." Also in this collaboration reflects the essential core element of Emigrate: "Actually, the band has evolved from a weariness with the band work," Kruspe says, laughing. "But by working on this record once again become clear to me that as a band and Ever teamwork are incredibly important. One simply needs reflection, interaction." One limitation with respect to the work with Rammstein available at However, Emigrate: At the end Richard Kruspe makes the decisions.
This resulted in a classically timeless hard rock and metal album of bleak apocalyptic basic color and huge bandwidth. The spectrum goes from Metal Thunder Factory "Eat You Alive"To experimental, Nine Inch Nails-inspired "Get down"Which Kruspe
together with the Canadian Queen of avant-garde, Peaches, presents. The main band whose sound Kruspe has clearly influenced by his incomparable game sounds naturally through repeatedly, such as "My Pleasurebut ". Comparisons with Rammstein deny alone already by the English lyrics and vocals Kruspe.
"There were not really songs that have fallen out," says Kruspe About the enormously prolific recordings. "I found all things strongly, wanting to waste anything fOr B-sides I therefore also pursues the intention perhaps to make one more album and who knows:.. Maybe open up so now also doors that this plate almost a pioneer example fOr more openness and willingness to cooperate in the rock music. " There it is again, the old East Berlin dream. Potential guests fall Kruspe a cartloads of Emigrate dream comes just going only.
Another positive side effect also likely positive feedback on his work with Rammstein Kruspe: "Dave Grohl is one of the best examples, "says Kruspe." He has this respect as a role model for me, because it makes lots of great things with so many different people and inspired so repeatedly and freshly holds. "The self-elected emigration of Richard Kruspe Rammstein is always only temporary, the awake and fresh holding such an extended holiday constitutes it a fOr everyday.
