Rammstein has become famous world-wide as a part of the German Neu Deutsche Härte (new German hardness) movement, which some consider to be the heaviest metal in the world. Lead singer Till Lindemann's deep, booming voice conveys both angry and humorous lyrics with a force that resonates in the bones of the listener. However, fans know Rammstein for their nearly unparalleled style of metal, outrageous costumes, and insane tour dates that feature some of the most elaborate pyrotechnics ever seen. Fans in North America who can't to see what Rammstein has in store for their next tour date need wait not much longer: Rammstein is returning for their first North American tour in ten years, with 2011 concert dates set to begin in May.
Rammstein rose to fame in Germany almost immediately after the release of their first album, Herzeleid in 1995. It wasn't until after the release of their second album, Sehnsucht, in late 1996 that Rammstein's popularity began to spread beyond the boundaries of Germany. The album was an instant hit in Germany and began to spread when Rammstein played their first US tour dates, replacing Rob Zombie on the Family Values Tour in 1998. Rammstein set a shocking precedent when -- on the Halloween concert date at the end of the tour -- the entire band was arrested for coming out on stage naked. Since a fan was injured at a tour date in Berlin in 1996, Rammstein has employed some of the most accomplished pyrotechnic crews in the world, and Lindemann himself is a certified pyrotechnic. As Rammstein fans claim: "Other band play, Rammstein burns!"
Rammstein's third album, Mutter, was released in April of 2001 to great commercial success. The album spawned North American tour dates in the summer of 2001, marking the last concert dates in the United States. Mutter was followed up by Reise, Reise, released in September of 2004. According to Billboard charts, the success of Reise, Reise officially made Rammstein the most successful German-language band of all time.
Rammstein's fifth album, Rosenrot, was released in late October of 2005, which produced the hits "Benzin," "Rosenrot," and "Mann gagged Mann". With aggressive tour dates and recording, Rammstein took much of 2006 off before setting to work on their latest album, Liebe is fur alle da, released in October of 2009. Upon the album's release, it was placed on the German BPjM's (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) index, which effectively banned the album from record stores. The BPjM removed the album from the index last year and, to date, Liebe is fur alle ad has become Rammstein's most commercially successful album.
After touring South Africa and the Big Day Out Festival, and the anticipation of their upcoming "Greatest Hits" album, Rammstein has scheduled North American concert dates for 2011, their first actual North American tour dates in ten years. Concert dates begin on May 5 in New York City and end in Monterrey, Mexico on May 31. Although there are only thirteen tour dates on the concert schedule (two consecutive concert dates in Mexico City), Rammstein will be playing major US, Canadian, and Mexican cities. With the best of Rammstein yet to come (literally and figuratively) fans in North America should take this opportunity to see the tour dates for these metal lords; it might be another ten years before they return.
