Heavy riffs with electronical background. First CD released was "Herzeleid" in 1996. The cover displayed all six members and was instantly ridiculed. Rammstein was accused of using the cover to show a "master race". Later on, the cover was changed to nothing more than the bands faces.
The second CD "Sehnsucht" included the hit "Du hast". The song became popular quickly but no one knows exactly what the song is saying. There are double-meanings. One of which is about marriage vows, another is about a guy being angry at his girlfriend. Either way, the album was successful.
The 3rd album, "Mutter", was released in 2001. Featuring an orchestra, the sound of Rammstein had changed for the better. The album included multiple hits like "Links 2 3 4", "Ich Will", "Sonne", and "Feuer Frei!". Once again, the cover came under attack from the press because it had a picture of a test-tube baby. However, it goes along with the song "Mutter" which talks about a test-tube child.
In June of this year, Rammstein will release the new single "Mein Tiel" which translates to "My share". This song is rumored to be based on a cannibalism incident that occured in Germany. Earlier, the single was thought to be the song "Rosenrot", another new song Rammstein is working on.
A new album will follow a few months after. Although few know about the album, the list of songs that could appear on it has been found (24 songs in total). One is called "Amerika", which makes fun of the United States. This songs includes the lyrics, "I will lead you, even if you do not want to go". Another song is called "Moskau" which is rumored to include the voices of TATU in the song.
Rammstein is Germany's most famous metal group. With the ability to speak in their native German and still have their music popular all over the globe, Rammstein's music will go down in history.
I bought the new Rammstein single "Mein Tiel" yesterday. Sounded great!
