Till Lindemann

Germany

Guest of the Fourteenth Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival Till Lindemann, German vocalist, songwriter and frontman of the Rammstein and Lindemann metal bands, poet. He is the author of the Messer (Knife) and In Stillen Nächten (In the Quiet Night) poem collections, starred in 8 films. He worked on the soundtrack for Timur Bekmambetov's Devyatayev film recording a cover of the Soviet song 'Favorite City'. He has a degree in pyrotechnics.

Since childhood Till Lindemann has been fond of sports, notably swimming. At the age of 10 he entered a sports school that prepared future athletes for the GDR national team. In 1980 he graduated, rating top of his class. In 1978 he was a member of the GDR national team at the European Junior Swimming Championships. He was supposed to take part at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, but the circumstances turned different.

In the mid-1980s Till Lindemann started playing drums. He got his first experience in the amateur punk band called First Arsch. Young musicians performed in abandoned factories and country houses, as rock music was banned in the GDR. In 1993 his friend Richard Kruspe invited Till Lindemann to move to Berlin and become vocalist of the newRammstein band. 

In 1994 Rammstein recorded their first album called Herzeleid featuring songs in German. A year later, they were still warming up audiences for more famous bands. But in 1996 their first music video was released on MTV, bringing the musicians first European and, a year later, worldwide fame. Several Rammstein songs were used by renowned director David Lynch in his Highway to Nowhere movie. The group is still successfully touring all over the world.

Along with Rammstein, Till Lindemann is heavily engaged in his solo career.
