Next to Laibach we also offer you Priest’s version of Rammstein’s “Engel” today, both of which will be feautred on the upcoming “A Tribute To Rammstein” compilation out soon via Cleopatra Records.

Rammstein’s “Engel” was released in April 1997 as the first single from their second album, “Sehnsucht”, along with a music video inspired by the 1996 Quentin Tarantino film, “From Dusk Till Dawn”. “Engel” made its own on-screen debut during the closing credits of November 1997’s “Mortal Kombat: Annihilation”. An English version of “Engel” can be found on US special editions of “Sehnsucht”.

The female part of song’s chorus in Rammstein’s own version is sung by Christiane “Bobo” Hebold of the German pop band Bobo in White Wooden Houses. Priest’s version features female vocalist (and the band’s visual artist) Greta Helling.

But let’s first check the new version by Priest.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
