ALTERNATIVE ROCK - NEUE DEUTSCHE HÄRTE
We are certainly not a "big band", but we are "probably the smallest band in the world". We have made it our task to embody the " Grössenwahn " (Megalomania) in our society.
Just in time for the European Project Day on Equality for People with Disabilities, the Grössenwahn association releases a music video that takes a stand with "Neue Deutsche Härte".
It is no coincidence that the video bears the signature of the band Rammstein. It is based on a Rammstein homage by artist-agent, actor and Grössenwahn founder Peter Brownbill. With his song recorded at Different Swing Studio in Zurich - which itself bears the ambivalent title "Grössenwahn" - Brownbill was able to impress Rammstein singer Till Lindemann so much even before the Corona era that the latter wanted to include it in his show "Flic Flac Freaks 2.0" at the Admiralspalast.
The music video now continues the story. It was sponsored by Aktion Mensch, produced by Sergio Fertitta (Franc Ocean, Snoop Dogg & Coolio, Jermaine Jackson, Shaggy, Snow, etc.) and recorded with a 6-piece band - consisting of Frank Ramirez (Keyboard and background vocals), Valerij Radmacher (Lead guitar), Jona Bergander (Rhythm guitar), Alexander Lel (Drums), Cem Aydin (Electric bass) and Peter Brownbill (Vocals). These musicians are all small in stature themselves.
Not only are the black and white images impressive, but the lyrics of the song are also captivating. "We're tired of comparisons... No one should be pitied." - just some of the countless statements with which singer Peter Brownbill gives expression to the anger and frustration of socially marginalized groups.
The video is also an obituary for actor and performer Frank Ramirez, who died unexpectedly on May 2, 2022. Not only did he give the production his very own signature, he was also a foundation pillar of the Grössenwahn association.
