Rammstein (pronounced [ˈʀamʃtaɪ̯n]) is a German industrial metal band, founded in Berlin, and consisting 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). The band is widely accepted as part of the NDH-scene, alongside bands such as Oomph! and Die Krupps. Their sound has been dubbed as Tanz-Metall (lit. "Dance Metal"). [1] [2] [3] Their songs are performed almost exclusively in German. Formed in 1994, they have sold over 22 million records worldwide. [4] Rammstein's entire catalogue is published by Universal Music Group.

Although the majority of their songs are written in German, Rammstein has had massive success across the world. It has been confirmed that the band has reunited from their vacation and has begun writing their sixth studio album, which will be released in late 2008/early 2009.
