Rammstein takes its name indirectly from the western German town of Ramstein-Miesenbach, site of a flight show disaster on August 28, 1988. The band's signature song, the eponymous Rammstein, is a commemoration of the tragedy that took place at the Ramstein Air Base. At the show, three Italian air force jets collided and fell into the audience. About 40 spectators died in the first minutes, and several hundred more were injured. In the next two months, the death toll rose to 72. The extra "m" in the band's name makes it translate literally as "ramming stone."
Style Although Rammstein is often generalized as Neue Deutsche Harte , its music spans a variety of related styles, including industrial hard rock , heavy metal and electronic music with influences of punk rock , pop music and gothic rock , due to their use of keyboards to emulate strings, choirs or pianos.The band's very, very diverse range of influence has, unsurprisingly, made them appealing to tastes of all kinds, but they are chiefly renowned in industrial, electronica, and heavy metal circles.
Can be... They are cult! They are madmen! "Rammstein“ the most successful and most disputable rock group of Germany and to understand their it is hard. Opinions about "Rammstein" cardinally disagree: one find their too rough, scandalous, sexual and misogynous. Others admire their unique scenic show, fantastic videoclips, severe, but not such the banal maintenance of texts. But anyway, they are group, whose songs have made the broken through in the top lines of charts of all world, whose music sounds in cult films and advertising rollers.
Rammstein was started by Richard Z. Kruspe. At that time, he was very influenced by American music, especially that of KISS. After the Berlin Wall came down, he moved back home to Schwerin where Till Lindemann worked as a basket weaver, a loader and played drums in the band First Arsch .The are the best friends.
Constantly, being engaged something, Till sang, sang always loudly, and Richard (Kruspe), listened his hours. Voice Till’s always admired his. Somehow he has brought the cassettes with new super-heavy music, and has told Till: " Sing! " Richard persuaded him three days and, at last, has convinced. I should sing constantly under a blanket since my voice awoke neighbours - spoke Till)
Texts Now about texts of songs which writes Тill: " My texts arise with feelings and from dreams, but nevertheless it is more from a pain. To me it is often dream nightmares and dreadful dream, and I wake up at night all in sweat since he dream of terrible bloody stages.
Lead vocal Till is the vice-champion of the Europe by the swimming, till now in the mornings floats on 2500 meters. Looking at his broad-shouldered and brawny figure (growth 1,92м., weight of 81 kg.) the spectator has the right to expect from him a thunderous voice in a usual life. However, Till speaks silently, a deep and gentle voice. He makes impression of the person thoughtful, almost shy and seldom smiling.
