Favorite German Bands #8 - Rammstein
September 11, 2016 9:26pm CST
#8 in my Favorite German Bands series is industrial-metal band Rammstein. Fronted by charismatic vocalist Till Lindemann, Rammstein formed in 1994 in Berlin. The band got their big break when, according to Wikipedia, they entered and won a Berlin amateur band contest. "Du Hast" was nominated for a Grammy in 1999 for Best Metal performance. Combining a dance beat with loud, Ministry-style guitars, the song reached #20 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart, the (Wikipedia, again) highest placing German tune in that chart's history. What can I say? I love industrial-metal. These guys, following in many industrial footsteps, kept that musical style relevant, and at least a little within the mainstream eye. And they're fun!
