SOME BANDS entertain, Rammstein destroy!

There are so few legends left to be written in the world of music. There are so few genuine rock monsters waiting to take up the mantle created by the likes of AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Well, look no more: enter the dragon, enter Rammstein!

Product Description


Formed in Germany in 1994, this industrial rock six-piece gained notoriety when they were found to be fave raves of the Columbine High School killers. Mutter is the studio follow-up to 1998s platinum-selling Sehnsucht, and a very menacing beast it is too. Vocalist Till Lindermann delivers growling German lyrics over a melange of explosive guitar, pared-down bass and juddering drums. But these 11 tracks are not all nu-metal stomp rock, as every so often the aural assault is broken by quivering flights of fragile pop melody. Songs like Spieluhr and Mutter are reminiscent of early 1980s synth-pop merchants such as OMD, proving that under the Teutonic Nine Inch Nails exterior lies a streak of lofty romance. --Lucy O'Brien

5.0 out of 5 stars Industrial Metal's finest offering 30 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
Industrial metal has definitely seen its pinnacle with the arrival of Mutter. The German band has fantastic composition and lyric writing skills. The tracks that really make this album are the 1st 4. Unable to speak German I cannot comment on each songs content, except for a couple of words here and there!
Mein Herz Brennt - A melodic start followed by a plunge into powerful metal, churning bass and shattering vocals. A very good start to the album.
Links 2 3 4 - If you have the chance to see the video to this song take it! It is great, the driving marching beat, the powerful chords and ants. Hundreds of ants!! Fantastic.
Sonne - The transfer from Links to Sonne is great. A grinding slide down the fret board of an overly charged guitar stepping straight into a count culminating in one of the best songs for a slow mosh! This is by far the best song on the album. The composition is fantastic and the chorus is melodic and powerful.
Ich Will - Another, unsurprisingly, very good song. Still strong, still heavy and powerful yet strangely insidious in places. With the constant "Ich Will" from the backing vocals the song is filled with determination.
Other songs of note are;
Mutter itself, a beautifully crafted piece of music. Rammstein are probably the only band I know that can get away with shouting "Mother" into the mic and making it sound good! Would that work in English, nope!
Spieluhr is slightly more paced and relaxed. Not a massive attack of blasting distortion but not as calm and sedate as Nebel.
Zwitter is a great moshing song, with the high and low counterpoint chanting the chorus like a drill instructor.
Adios starts out like a moshing tune that will break your neck before it's done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ich Will ! 8 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
Imagine what would happen if Laibach decided to record Propaganda songs under the musical guidance
of Kraftwerk, Metallica, Jim Thirlwell and Wagner. The result would probably still sound nothing like Rammstein, the
reason being that nothing else I have ever heard sounds like Rammstein. However this combination gives a flavour of the
plethora of influences and styles to be heard on this CD - in virtually every track. Mutter contains the most uplifting,
stompingly gutteral, melodic, pounding, awesome songs I have heard in a long time. The production is crystal clear and
the metal guitars, synth melodies, string sections and disco beats dance superbly around the whispered spoken and
beautifully sung German vocals. It works because it is German - if it was in French it would be awful - and I am honest
enough to admit that it probably sounds better lyrically without knowing the translation of every word. The standout
tracks for me are Mein Herz Brennt, Sonne, Ich Will and Speiluhr with the latter being a sublime musical experience.
The tail end of the CD has some slightly less ambitious tracks (Zwitter, Rein Raus) but even these contain surprises.
Unfortunately the most heard track at the time of writing is probably Feuer Frei as it was included on the Vin Diesel
XXX soundtrack but this is one of the lesser achievements of this collection. The only problem for Rammstein is finding
their audience because of their sheer diversity. At risk of showing my age, I have not been as astonished by
a band since buying Nail by Scraping Foetus Off the Wheel over 15 years ago. Rammstein are probably not
everyone's flavour of music but they are definitely mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rammstein are the choen ones 17 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had heard of them, but never actually heard them. That was all to change however, and so converted me from a "not interested" to an obsessive fan of this band.
Very, very rarely, do I come across a single song which makes me fall in love with a band. In fact, the only time it has ever happened was with Rammstein and the song was Sonne. Pure, dark and 100% industrial metal. When the chord change in the chorus hit I was hooked and still am. The whole album is just superb and diverse. The openig track "Mein Herz Brennt" is laced with electronic violins and the deep (Germa) lyrics are sung around cutting guitar riffs. Links 234 has a marching beat stir emotions, Sonne speaks for itself and Ich Will is the sing a long of the album.
My personal favourites on the album have changed s often it's hard to say which I prefer over all. Every song is very powerful Adios is worth headbanging along to and the excellent Zwitter is, I find, upbeat and always puts me in a good mood.
Rammstein have the talent, insight and sheer brass-neck to change the stereo type of German music forever.
As the band themselves said, they are the most and least German band out there. Most, because of their determination to stick true to their roots, and least because this band do not take themselves seriously. The music is undeniably German. It is powerful, industrial and straight forward.
One word of warning, though. If you buy this album, the chances of you listening to anything else for 6 months are quite slim. Utter brilliance!

5.0 out of 5 stars zehr gut musik 23 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this is one of the best albums in my collection , the band combines the best of metal with tones of accept, scorpions and kraftwerk, bit of mettalica as well maybe, it is nice to listen to melodic metal , so many new metal bands just seem to thrash out chords loudly or have 1 or 2 good songs then you buy the album and find the others boring. anyway mutter and sehnsucht are albums where every tracks excellent good or listenable.
