Rammstein is an industrial metal German band formed in post-reunified Berlin (1994) and consists of; 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).
Famed for their amazing pyrotechnics in their show, the band was named after an aircraft disaster in the former West Germany.
Their first album, Herzeleid came out in 1995 and was followed up with heavy touring for the next two years. They became massively known when two of their tunes, "Heirate mich" and "Rammstein" were used in David Lynch's film Lost Highway.
Their second album Sehnsucht (1997) was well received and Rammstein embarked on the Family Values Tour with Grunge/Indie veterans Korn, Limp Bizkit amongst other well known artists.
Rammstein was nominated for a Grammy in 1999 and went onto release their next album, Mutter in April 2001, touring across Europe as performing in Australia and New Zealand at a Big Day Out.
Throughout the 2000’s the band released a further three albums Reise, Reise (2004), Rosenrot (2005) and Liebe ist für alle da (2009). In December 2011 Rammstein released their greatest album Made in Germany 1995–2011.
