Rammstein Debut New (Porn-Free) Video

German industrial-metallers Rammstein had quite a task ahead of them trying to top the unbelievably lewd antics of the first video from their chart-topping album Liebe Ist Für Alle Da – especially since that particular X-rated clip became one of the hottest viral videos of the year. While not nearly as shocking as its predecessor, their newly launched follow-up Ich Tu Dir Weh does the next best thing by capturing the maniacal energy of a Rammstein stage performance. It's also among the best of the many excellent tracks on the new album, so it's well worth a spin… but what the hell is up with frontman Till Lindemann's teeth?

Described by the band as “the ultimate distillation of a Rammstein concert into five minutes,” Ich Tu Dir Weh features all the fire and lightning you’d expect from a Rammstein gig, plus the unforgettable image of Till after an apparent teeth-whitening procedure gone horribly wrong (similar to the light-in-the-mouth effect used by Laurie Anderson in her video for O Superman). While Till wields his microphone in a suggestive manner, lanky keyboardist Flake Lorenz trudges away on a treadmill… a good choice, because at nearly 85 pounds, that dude obviously needs to cut some weight.

Director Jonas Åkerlund (who helmed their notorious video for Pussy) shot the band's well-choreographed performance on 35mm film, in an effort to capture the epic feel of a Rammstein show. “The plan was simple,” the band declared. “Åkerlund uses the language of grand cinema [and] Rammstein delivers the rest: the theatre, the flesh, the frenzy... Ich Tu Dir Weh shows the band at its purest and most concentrated. A beast, only awakened to life onstage under the spell of fire and a maddening roar.” Yup, that pretty much covers it.

Fire up the clip below and be sure to crank the volume…
