Earlier in the week, Rammstein announced a new concert film, Paris, was on the way. Screenings will be held in roughly 350 theaters across the globe, including a handful of cities in the U.S. like New York City, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Showtimes and ticket information can be found here on Rammstein's website.. The footage for the concert combines two of the band's 2012 performances in Paris, France, compiled by director Jonas Akerlund. Rammstein are also expected to release a new album this year. This will be their first album in eight years following the release of 2009's Liebe ist für alle da. Both trailers for the film are posted below.
I found some behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the KORN song A Different World. The track is taken from KORN's latest album, The Serenity Of Suffering, which came out at the end of October. The song also features a guest appearance from Corey Taylor. Check out the BTS and actual music video below.
