1997 album from the controversial German shock rock act,featuring the hit European singles 'Du Hast' and 'Engel'.11 tracks total. A Motor label release. 'Sehnsucht' means'Longing' in English. 'Rammstein' translates into 'BatteringRam' in English.
There's not a big precedent for German bands succeeding in the United States, the '80s bombast-rock of the Scorpions notwithstanding. Rammstein, however, may be the macho men to get the job done, at least in a concert setting. Decidedly Teutonic and militant in sound and lyrics--they sing in German and their commanding semi-industrial metal is compelling--Rammstein garnered rock-radio airplay for the catchy sing-along "Du Hast," which translates here as "You Hate" and bears a striking musical resemblance to the Golden Earring tune "Twilight Zone." While Sehnsucht's 11 songs are solid, it's the live shows where everything gels. There, KISS pyrotechnics and disturbing NIN-like images, for example, complement Rammstein's forceful music. Without the visual stimuli, Sehnsucht (which means "longing") is still a strong effort, but live is where the album's Germanic gems really shine. --Katherine Turman

Rammstein's sound relies on Till's deep voice (how about those rolling "R"s!) and their heavy use of power-chords. I heard some people say that the band sounds like Nazis or others mocking Till's voice but Rammstein couldn't care less what you think of them, they already have fans all over the globe and make a living off music. Besides Till's vocals are perfect for Metal as they're strong, menacing and powerful.Read more ›
First, let me explain what the term Industrial Rock means:
Industrial rock is basically heavy metal/hard rock, combined with elements from both techno and pop. When done right, as in this case, it creates not a cheezy, poppy effct, but an incredibly heavy rock song. Industrial rock is NOT Korn. Korn sucks. Industrial rock is Marilyn Manson, Rob/White Zombie, some Nine Inch Nails songs, Hanzel und Gretyl, some KMFDM, especially their latest, WWIII. And most of all, Industrial Rock is NOT David Bowie. (While that is occasionally good music) It's not even rock.
1) Sehnsucht (Longing)--the title track of this album is incredible. The vocals are great, the guitars are sharp, and the beat is fas and hard. A quintessential Industrial Rock song. The lyrics are about a guy who screws a girl while she's asleep.
2)Engel (Angel)--This song is good too, with a slower, hippier beat that makes the video's setting (a strip club) easy to believe. It also features a background singer, a woman named Bobo, who plays the voice of the angel, which is a nice contrast to Till Lindemann's harsh growl. Also notable about this track is that the instrumental version was combined with a rap song by Eminem called "Slim Shady," which was very cool. This song is about going to hell.
3) Tier (Animal)--This is an awesome song. It starts out with a trippy line on the accoustic guitar, then slams into the full fury of Rammstein. This song is about a guy who sleeps with his daughter until his wife kills him.
4)Bestrafe Mich (Punish Me)--This song is cool as well, with a slightly more poppy sond than some of the other ones.Read more ›
