Rammstein guitarist Paul Landers visited Minsk under another name in September 2018, German pianist, conductor and impresario Wilhelm Keitel told Belarusian state TV channel Belarus 1. Rammstein was in the capital of Belarus on 14-15 September. The German musicians were at the Radio House where they recorded together with the Belarus TV and Radio Company's Symphony Orchestra and Academic Choir. The project was made possible thanks to Keitel, the press office of Belarus state TV said.

Wilhelm Keitel is currently in Minsk working on a musical program for Easter celebrations. He has revealed some details of Landers' secret visit. According to Keitel, the deal between the producer and Rammstein was that nobody would know where they were flying to and what they were going to do.

"The gutarist even changed his name in the passport," Keitel says. (Landers was nevertheless spotted in Zybickaja street back then). According to Keitel, "the recording went wonderfully". The musicians were happy and are ready to cooperate again in the future.
