Peter Tägtgren explains why he quit LINDEMANN with RAMMSTEIN singer, PAIN/HYPOCRISY mainman
In a new interview with the “I Ask No One” video podcast, Swedish multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren was asked about the final tour he played with LINDEMANN, his collaborative project with vocalist Till Lindemann of German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN. He said: “It was very successful — definitely. It was not really my cup of tea at all, to be honest. And that’s why we’re not playing anymore together. So he can go on with his stuff; I go on with my stuff. To keep it very simple.“
LINDEMANN‘s second album, “F & M”, was released in November 2019. The follow-up to 2015’s “Skills In Pills” was once again produced and mixed by Tägtgren.
“Skills In Pills” reached gold status in Germany and was entirely in English. On the second opus, Lindemann went back to singing exclusively in German.
LINDEMANN had received some criticism due to its use of pornography during its second album cycle, with the music video for “Platz Eins” described by one site as “full-on art porn — slick and stylish, weird and experimental, and definitely X-rated.”
