Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte band from Berlin, Germany, formed in 1994. Throughout its existence, Rammstein’s six-man lineup has remained unchanged — lead guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe, bassist Oliver “Ollie” Riedel, drummer Christoph “Doom” Schneider, lead vocalist Till Lindemann, rhythm guitarist Paul H. Landers, and keyboardist Christian “Flake” Lorenz.
The band helped to found a subgenre within German hard rock and metal that became known as Neue Deutsche Härte. The majority of their songs are in German, but they have also performed songs entirely or partially in other languages including English, Spanish, French, and Russian. Rammstein’s award-winning live shows are known for their pyrotechnic elements and both on and off-stage theatrics. Rammstein’s entire catalogue is published by Universal Music Group.
