German cannibal wants to eat all of Rammstein rockers

The members of the rock band Rammstein might stand a trial soon. The main character of one of the most scandalous songs of the band, the cannibal Armin Meiwes, a convicted prisoner, is suing the musicians for using his story with a commercial purpose. He says, they didn't even ask permission.Rammstein

Rammstein dedicated their "Mein Teil" hit to Meiwes. It had been released as a single not long before their new album “Reise Reise” in 2004.

The story of Armin Meiwes was widely covered in the German media. A few years ago, he killed his friend Bernd Juergen Brandes and then ate him up. They got acquainted through the Internet. According to the cannibal, the victim had asked him to do that, so he can’t be put to trial for the murder. Meiwes was sentenced to eight and a half years of imprisonment. The discussion is still going whether the court decision was right or not: the prosecution are for lengthening the term that the court have decided on, as that was the punishment for cannibalism, not murder.

"I was really interested to find out about why he would want to kill a man and eat him," guitarist Richard Kruspe said in one of his interviews in 2004. - What I figured out was that Meiwes' mother totally destroyed all kinds of relationships he had in his childhood. So, he felt that if he did this, his victim would stay with him forever. It was just a really interesting story, so we decided to make a song about it."

Armin Meriwes also brought an action against the film-makers of the “Butterfly: A Grimm Love Story”, that is also based on his story. However, this situation is much simpler; as marked in the claim, Meiwes has already sold the rights for film production to some other company. "I feel as though I have been used," complains the cannibal.
