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
"Rammstein-Flightshow".) RAMMSTEIN IN AMERIKA Concert film

Hannes Rossacher’s major documentary “Rammstein in Amerika” is a great
journey. It begins in summer 1988 on the Ostseestrand in East Germany
and accompanies the band on their long, sometimes painful, but finally
successful conquest of the American continents up until 2001. It
continues with their farewell to the US after the events of September
11th and ends in front of thousands of cheering Americans in Madison
For the documentary, Rammstein provided extensive, previously unreleased
footage and photos from the band archive. In numerous interviews from
various periods in the band’s history, the band members speak about
their experiences across the Atlantic.
Old and new friends and acquaintances, as well as many American
colleagues, pay tribute to the band and recount anecdotes. Chad Smith

Pop, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley from KISS, Wes Borland (Limp

In November 2008, Rammstein begin recording their sixth album “Liebe Ist
Für Alle Da” in Sonoma Mountain Studio in California. Paul Landers
documents the six-week studio production. He interviews his bandmates
and films during recordings and photo sessions, until he finally gets
told: “Oh Paul, that’s really getting on my nerves, just turn it off …” DVD1:
