EDITORS’ NOTES

Lindemann’s debut album is everything you would expect from an act featuring Till Lindemann (of German industrial rock legends Rammstein) and Swedish metal head Peter Tägtren (Hypocrisy, PAIN). With multi-instrumentalist Tägtren writing all the music and Lindemann providing his distinctive vocals in English for the first time, Skills in Pills is a unique collaboration. Provocative lyrics delivered with knowing aplomb and disarmingly catchy choruses emerging from the noise and riffs—Lindemann manage to enthral and impress in equal measure.

Skills in pills

Snippet sounds very good and I can't wait for the release of the album.

A great collaboration. Left me emotionally drained.

I am a long time Rammstein fan and I loved reading both poetry books by T. Lindemann. I didn't care for Emigrate, as Till's thoughts and vocals are main selling points. It was a nice surprise to hear that Lindemann and Tägtgren were teaming up and followed the progress as it was posted on Facebook.

The music is definitely different, I am not well versed in instruments, so I cannot tell how. I just can tell that it's a different flavor and it works great with Lindemann's vocals and his vibrations and grunts.
Like I said in one of my Facebook comments, English or German, this is still T. Lindemann. He is comfortable at jumping across emotional palette and takes the listener on a rollercoaster with him. His lyrics prep and loosen up the listener and then deliver a punch in the face on the last line of the song.

I loved the album and listened to it three times, except for the last song, which I only listened to once. For some reason, I just couldn't bring myself up to listen to it again. I was so drained by the time Praise Abort ended, that "That's my Heart" was too much. I felt like someone rode me hard and then threw me down, and then as soon as my muscles started to relax, someone picked me up by my hair and rode me again.

But I guess that is the power of poetry. I don't know how he goes on with day to day life with all these thoughts in his head.

Awesome!!!

I've been waiting for this ever since I heard the news about another side project (in this case Lindemann). Though I was expecting another Rammstein album coming out soon, Having Emigrate and Lindemann would hold me off until then. Best of luck with Till and Peter on this one!
