A favorite group of the Trenchcoat Mafia murderers returns with a too-long, too-flat live album, Live Aus Berlin. But that’s not the only problem facing these Teutonic techno-metal terrors. While Rammstein’s concerts are extravaganzas of mayhem, when stripped of their trademark visuals (fiery pyrotechnics and psychosexual props), they become the musical equivalent of the emperor’s new clothes. Without the smoke and mirrors, all that’s left is canned heat.
