Unless you actually understand what the german groups are saying, I don't think you have a right to bash American rock.

Waya, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Anyway, HIM is from Finland. That's kind of like German. They sing in english though. By the way, Ramstein is pretty good.

Filippo Inzaghi is da man. Also, Italy is da man. AC Milan is also da man just as equally.

Finland is not Germany.  Had you said Finland was like Sweden or Denmark, maybe, but Germany?! 

Oh, Rammstein's latest—Reise, Reise—is a very good album.

As for bashing US rock.  Well, the mainstream IS cynical and pretty derivative in my opinion (given than I seem to need to qualify an obviously subjective comment).  Where is the invention?  I do not mind not being able to understand the lyrics as they are sung because, in general, most lyrics are pretty twee and trite.  Music is music.  If I like how it sounds, then I am happy.  Of course, I still look up what the lyrics mean, but not being able to understand what is being said at the time does not detract from the aural experience.

I do not care if I have to import music, it's always worth it...

Officially, it was releaed in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland on the 27th Sep.  I picked it up here (UK) on that day as well.  It is a minor departure from their usual fare, but it is none the worse for it.  They even sing parts in English—'Amerika', in particular.  Though, 'Moskau' is fun for the dual vocals qua Paradise Lost.  I find the name of the album amusing—Journey, Journey—for there is a noticeable progression from the expected Teutonic throb of the opening tracks, toward a softer closing, 'Amour'.  I think it works very well.

Back to Finland: HIM is a very good band, but Nightwish is better.

i agree nightwish is awsome...  its kinda odd to have journey journey as a title >.<

As for getting the cd... it isnt due for release here in the US for quite a while.. so I downloaded it first and am going to buy the CD the Second it hits shelves in my town ^.^

There was this band I heared called E Nomine. They did a song called Mitternacht (midnght). I thought it was Rammstein at first cus the lead singer sounds SO MUCH like Til from Rammstein.
