Rammstein - movie and video appearances
Within only a few years of starting their career, Rammstein soon caught the
attention of Hollywood for their explosive stage performances and energetic
music. Rammstein appeared in such movies: Mortal Kombat: Annihilation For the
Masses,Wing Commander, The Matrix, How High, Resident Evil, Lilya 4-Ever, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, See No Evil and others.
Rammstein's song videos also tie in quite closely with films as they
frequently "quote" from movies, including Quentin J. Tarantino's Reservoir
Dogs in "Du hast" and From Dusk Till Dawn in "Engel". "Du hast" is also a
hint to Lost Highway from David Lynch. The video for Feuer Frei also
contains many shots taken from the action scenes of xXx.
Rammstein has achieved particular fame for its hugely over-the-top stage
show, using so many pyrotechnics that fans eventually coined the motto
"Other bands play, Rammstein burns!"
Rammstein's shows have become increasingly elaborate since the first ones
over ten years ago, when their effects were confined to pouring kerosene
around the stage and setting it alight. After some unfortunate early
accidents the band took to employing professionals to handle the
pyrotechnics; Lindemann himself is now a licensed pyrotechnic.
Rammstein has released five full-length studio albums:
Reise, Reise (2004),
Rosenrot (2005) and
two live albums
Live Aus Berlin (1999) and
The band's latest album, Rosenrot, was released on October 28, 2005.
The band will take a timeout in 2006, and will record a new album in 2007.
A new live Rammstein DVD, named Völkerball, was released on November 17th
2006 in Germany (and other parts of Europe), with concert footage from
France, England, Japan, and Russia, alongside a CD as well. There are three
versions of the upcoming release, one including a 190 page tour book.
