Rammstein

Rammstein were formed in 1993 by an assembly of factory-weary proletarians raised in East Germany.

Rammstein were formed in 1993 by an assembly of factory-weary proletarians raised in East Germany. They took their name(adding an "m") from the location of a German tragedy where 80 people were hurt and killed as the result of a crash during anAmerican Air Force flight show. (The literal translation of "ram stein" is a battering ram made of stone.) Word of Rammstein'shorror/romanticist blend of theater and music -- one-time Olympic swimmer Till Lindemann would sing entire songs engulfed inflame from head to toe -- spread quickly. The band's first album, Herzeleid (Heartache), built on the grounds created by theband's live reputation. Scaling the German charts (and remaining there until the release of the second Rammstein LP some twoyears later), the album also introduced the band to the world outside of the Germany/Switzerland/Austria region. AsRammstein's second album, Sehnsucht (Longing), was released, the band was headlining throughout Europe to crowds of 10,000to 30,000 people. Sehnsucht entered the German charts at number one immediately upon its release and came very close todoing the same in Austria and Switzerland. Within weeks, entries on other countries' charts had Sehnsucht rubbing elbows withthe Prodigy, Radiohead, and the Rolling Stones on Billboard's cumulative Eurochart. From there the fever spread, transcendingany perceived language barrier. Mutter followed in 2001, Reise, Reise in 2004, and the live collection Volkerball in 2006. Liebe Istfur Alle Da followed in 2009. A limited edition of the album was packed in a metal suitcase that also housed six sex toys, one foreach member of the band. « hide
