World Music Wednesday! Rammstein: Why Metal Should Always Be Sung in German

0 Comments 26 January 2011

By Sweet Sound of Sunrise

An airshow disaster seems to be an odd event to name a band after, but that’s what a band formerly known as Ramstein-Flugschau got their name. You would know them better as Rammstein.

Formed in Berlin in 1993, Rammstein is a pioneer of the Neue Deutsche Härte, genre of music that mixes techno into a mix of hard rock and metal. This combination, combined with a reputation for elaborate, pyrotechnic-heavy live shows, has made the band famous throughout Germany and many countries all over Europe.

Band members Till Lindemann, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul H. Landers, Oliver Riedel, Christoph Schneider, and Christian Lorenz remain in the same lineup from the band’s inception almost 20 years ago. Their popularity has extended beyond the continent, too. “Du Hast” is likely their most famous song in North America, after being featured on the sountrack for the movie The Matrix.
