Rammstein are a heavy metal band from Berlin formed in 1994. The band took its name from the Rammstein airshow disaster that occurred in August 1988. Their debut album Herzleid was released in 1995 and immediately received positive reviews from the media. Since then, the band has released five more albums. The band also contributed to the development of a new subgenre within German hard rock and metal music, known as the Neue Deutsche Härte. Although the majority of their songs contain German lyrics, the group has performed at many major music festivals across the world. Additionally, Rammstein remain one of the few heavy metal bands without any lineup changes through the years. During their live performances, the band uses many pyrotechnic elements and off-stage theatrics, making them one of the best heavy metal live bands.
