Rammstein – Mutter (2001)
Jem of Jemtunes, born in 1959, has now turned 59. So ‘The ’59’ celebrates 59 years of cracking tunes with a few albums from each year – 1959 through 2018. Currently we’re at year 43 – 2001.
Rammstein is a German Industrial metal band formed in 1994 in Berlin. Rammstein’s six-man lineup has remained unchanged — lead guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe, rhythm guitarist Paul H. Landers, lead vocalist Till Lindemann, keyboardist Christian “Flake” Lorenz, bassist Oliver “Ollie” Riedel, and drummer Christoph “Doom” Schneider.
The band helped to found a subgenre within German hard rock and metal that became known as Neue Deutsche Härte. The majority of their songs are in German, but they have also performed songs entirely or partially in other languages including English, Spanish, French, and Russian.
Rammstein’s award-winning live shows are known for their pyrotechnic elements and both on and off-stage theatrics.
Mutter was their third studio album, released in April 2001 through the Universal Music Group.
