A while back the US goth rock act The 69 Eyes covered The Cramps’ “Aloha From Hell”, today they give us a preview of their rendition of Rammstein’s “Feuer Frei!”. This track was originally released as the fifth single from Rammstein’s third album, “Mutter”, which debuted on April 2nd, 2001. On August 9th, 2002, “Feuer Frei!” made its film debut in the Rob Cohen action feature, “xXx”, starring Vin Diesel, and can be heard in its near entirety at the beginning of the film, which takes place at a Rammstein concert.
The tribute song is accompanied by a video which you can view below. Directed by the acclaimed Vicente Cordero, it shows fire performers IvorySith & Kay Von Kola.
The song itself is part of the “A Tribute To Rammstein” compilation – of which we already previewed various tracks – available worldwide on August 25th. Included on this compilation are other bands like Priest, Manntra, and Julien-K, Front Line Assembly, Laibach, Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory), Paul Ferguson (Killing Joke), and Skold (KMFDM/Shotgun Messiah).
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.
