Rammstein - En Directo
Rammstein is a German industrial metal band from Berlin, formed in 1994.
The band consists of members Till Lindemann (lead vocals), Richard Z. Kruspe (lead guitar and backing vocals),
Paul H. Landers (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Oliver "Ollie" Riedel (bass guitar),
Christoph "Doom" Schneider (drums and electronic percussion) and Christian "Flake" Lorenz (keyboards).
They are widely accepted as part of the Neue Deutsche Härte scene, alongside bands such as Oomph!, Eisbrecher, and Die Krupps.
Their songs are usually in German, but they have also performed songs
entirely or partially in other languages such as English, Spanish,
French and Russian.
As of 2009, they have sold over 15 million records worldwide.
Since their formation in 1994, Rammstein has had no changes in their band line-up nor have any members left the band.
Rammstein takes their name indirectly from the German town of
Ramstein-Miesenbach, the site of the flight show disaster on 28 August
The band's signature song, "Rammstein", is a commemoration of the disaster.
In a short period before the band became well known, they performed
using the name "Rammstein-Flugschau" (literally meaning
Although Rammstein is often generalized as Neue Deutsche Härte, their
music spans a variety of related styles, including heavy metal,
industrial music, and groove metal.
The band has a flair for costumes of all sorts, both in live shows and
in videos. In the "Keine Lust" video, all members of the band except
Flake were dressed in fat suits. In the "Amerika" video, all members of
the band wore space suits. Live, the band experiments even more with
costumes. In the Völkerball concert, among others, Till changed costumes
between songs, dressed accordingly for each. For example, in "Mein
Teil", he was dressed as a butcher, in "Reise, Reise", as a sailor. The
rest of the band each wore their own preferred costume, but none as
outlandish or themed as Till's.
Rammstein's style has tended to divide critics, some of whom have
responded with memorable comments. Jam Showbiz (April 2001) described
Mutter as "music to invade Poland to". New Zealand's Southland Times
(December 17, 1999) suggested that Till Lindemann's "booming, sub-sonic
voice" would send "the peasants fleeing into their barns and bolting
their doors", while the New York Times (January 9, 2005) commented that
on the stage, "Mr. Lindemann gave off an air of such brute masculinity
and barely contained violence that it seemed that he could have reached
into the crowd, snatched up a fan, and bitten off his head." Stephen
Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic commented that "their blend of industrial
noise, grinding metal guitars, and operatic vocals is staggeringly
powerful." "We just push boundaries", said Till Lindemann in an
interview with rock magazine Kerrang!. "We can't help it if people don't
like those boundaries being pushed."
Vocalist Till Lindemann writes most of Rammstein lyrics.
Nearly all of Rammstein's songs are in German. However, the band has
recorded English songs as well as cover of the song "Stripped" (Depeche
Mode). In addition, the songs "Amerika", "Stirb nicht vor mir/Don't Die
Before I Do," and "Pussy" contain lyrics in English. The song "Moskau" (
"Moscow" ) contains a chorus in Russian. "Te quiero puta!" is entirely
in Spanish. Oliver Riedel commented that, "German language suits heavy
metal music. French might be the language of love, but German is the
language of anger."
The lyrics of Rammstein, and their utterance by singer Till Lindemann,
are an essential element of the music and shape the perception by fans
and a wider public. Among other things that are often very
controversial, Rammstein also uses lyrics of classical German
literature, e.g. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's famous poems Der Erlkönig
(1778) and Das Heidenröslein (1771) for the songs "Dalai Lama" and
Many of their songs are inspired by real life events. These songs
include Rammstein (Ramstein airshow disaster), Mein Teil (The Meiwes
Case), Wiener Blut (Fritzl case), and Donaukinder (2000 Baia Mare
Wordplay is a fundamental component of Rammstein's lyrics. In many
instances, the lyrics are phrased such that they can be interpreted in
several ways. The song "Du hast", for example, is a play on German
marriage vows (Willst Du, bis der Tod euch scheidet, treu ihr sein für
alle Tage? – "Will you, until Death separates you, be faithful to her
for the rest of your days?" ). In the song, the traditional affirmative
response, Ja ( "Yes" ), is replaced by its negation Nein ( "No" ). The
song starts, in fact, with a play on words: Du... Du hast... Du hast
mich... meaning "You have me". This line is often mistaken for "You hate
me", because in German, there is only a very subtle (if any)
distinction (hast may be pronounced slightly softer than hasst) between
the pronunciation of Du hasst which means "you hate" and Du hast which
means "you have". The pun is later resolved as the line is completed; Du
hast mich gefragt ( "You [have]asked me" ). Confusingly, the band did
also make an English version of the song named "You Hate" which was not
translated directly from "Du hast". While many arguments are made about
"Du hast", it is known that Rammstein used this wording to mislead and
create humour in the song, causing many non-native speakers of German to
