Who thought that the most creepy thing of a Lindemann concert isn’t lyrics or the show. Looking at the newest release of the iconic singer, it is the big audience that came together at the beginning of the upcoming pandemic that seems so unreal these days.
Lindemann, that was Till Lindemann and Peter Tägtgren until November 2020 when the two guys decided to part ways. In this sense, the ‘Live in Moscow’ album is rounding off five years of Lindemann, featuring a concert the project played in March 2020 in the Russian capital.
Since the pandemic was already lurking at the horizon, band and officials agreed on performing two shows with 50% audience each. The setlist of the show was equally split between the two release studio albums ‘F & M’ and ‘Skills in Pills’. Musically there isn’t that much new to expect from this live album. Songs are known and the ‘Pain-version of ‘Ach so gern’ gives a bit of a new expression. In a way, things play itself out when it comes to music and shock-factor. Lindemann isn’t Rammstein although both try to harvest from the same soil.
Although musically things are like same thing only different, it is the show elements that make this concert to a special event, beyond the music. Supported by a huge digital backdrop, Lindemann initiate the typical theateresque spectacle, aiming for some shocking moments. In the end it is an entertaining event, preformed in front of an enthusiastic crowd that makes your day. Songs like ‘Knebel’, with the acoustic part and the musical blast halfway are the fascinating highlights of the Moscow concert that makes fun to watch and explore.
‘Live in Moscow’ is more than a live album. This release unveils the entire intensity by combining audio and video. It’s like an illusionary theatre play that is mainly expressed through heavy music which supports the general atmosphere. Benefiting from an excellent sound and being captured with various cameras brings different perspectives to the plate and support a wholistic live experience, as good as it can be in your own living room. Lindemann fans and Rammstein-enthusiasts will like this album, a release that delivers 100% to expectation.
