THE CONTROVERSIAL German band Rammstein arrives in Bratislava to promote its latest CD, Reise, Reise. The band, singing exclusively in German, will put on a huge show full of electronic and fire effects. In its music the band uses elements that symbolize totalitarian ideologies - the cult of the body as well as the power of propaganda. Apocalyptica, the Finnish band that plays metal style music on classical instruments, will support the German stars. The concert starts February 28 at 20:00 at Incheba, Hall C, Viedenská cesta 7. Tickets cost Sk990 to Sk2,190. Tel: 0904/666-363.
