Rammstein Guitarist Richard Kruspe - "All our tracks have something to do with the darker sides of love"
The Gauntlet caught up with Rammstein guitarist Richard Kruspe this morning and asked his thoughts on the themes of love that run through the bands upcoming album Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da. "All our tracks have something to do with the darker sides of love and sex. They aren't the happy love songs. We always chose to write about the darker side of relationships. We always have chosen an album title from a song and this time it was so hard to choose one for the title. Nothing really popped out for an idea. From the beginning we had a title called "Seid Bereit" which translates to 'Get ready' but this really never made any sense. I was working on the solo for Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da and hearing Till's voice all the time and I thought wow. When you first hear the title, it sounds cheesy but then there is a deeper meaning. I picture all the bad guys in the world and what love is there for everyone. It is true that love is there for everyone and it doesn't skip anyone. All of the sudden it had a very spiritual meaning to me and you can play with the words and show the darker side to love you know."
