Till Lindemann (German pronunciation: [tɪlˈlɪndəman] ; born 4 January 1963) is a German singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist and lyricist of Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein and solo project Lindemann. Rammstein has sold over 25 million records worldwide, with five of their albums receiving platinum status, and Lindemann has been listed among the "50 Greatest Metal Frontmen of All Time" by Roadrunner Records. Lindemann has also appeared in minor roles in films and has also published three books of poetry. He has presented some of his original poems and scripts to galleries.


Early life

Lindemann was born on 4 January 1963 in Leipzig (then in East Germany), [1] [2] the son of Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) journalist Brigitte Hildegard "Gitta" Lindemann and poet Werner Lindemann. [3] His parents first met at a conference in Bitterfeld in 1959. [4] He grew up in Wendisch-Rambow alongside his younger sister, Saskia. [3] [5] At age 11, Lindemann went to a sports school at the sports club SC Empor Rostock, [5] and attended a boarding school from 1977 to 1980. [5] His parents lived separately for career reasons after 1975, and divorced when Lindemann was still young. [6] He lived with his father for a short time, but the relationship was unhealthy; in the book Mike Oldfield im Schaukelstuhl, his father wrote about his own problems with alcoholism and the difficulties of being a father to a teenage Lindemann. [7]

In 1978, Lindemann participated in the European Junior Swimming Championships in Florence, finishing 11th in the 1500 m freestyle and 7th in the 400 m freestyle, swimming a time of 4'17"58; he was shortlisted to go to the 1980 Olympics in Moscow, [6] but left the sport due to an injury. [8] According to Lindemann, "I never liked the sport school actually, it was very intense. But as a child you don't object." [1] He later worked as an apprentice carpenter, a gallery technician, a peat cutter, and a basket weaver. [9] His mother dedicated a letter titled Mein Sohn, der Frontmann von Rammstein ("My son, the frontman of Rammstein") to Lindemann in 2009. [10] The first album he owned was Deep Purple's Stormbringer . [11]

Lindemann started to play drums for Schwerin-based experimental rock band First Arsch in 1986, [12] who released an album titled Saddle Up in 1992, and played one song ("Lied von der unruhevollen Jugend") with a punk band called Feeling B, which was the former band of Rammstein members Paul Landers, Christoph Schneider and Christian "Flake" Lorenz in 1989. [12] During his time in Feeling B, he played the drums in the band. [12] In the 1990s, Lindemann began to write lyrics. In 1994, the band entered and won a contest in Berlin that allowed them to record a four track demo professionally. When questioned as to why Rammstein was named after the Ramstein air show disaster, [13] he said he viewed images of the incident on television, and that he and the bandmates wanted to make a musical memorial. [14]

Lindemann then moved to Berlin. During Rammstein's early years, because of his use of over-the-top pyrotechnics, Lindemann has burned his ears, hair and arms. [15] Bandmate Christoph Schneider commented, "Till gets burned all the time, but he likes the pain." [15] An incident in September 1996 caused a section of the band's set to burn, and as a result, Lindemann got his certification in pyrotechnics so the band could perform with pyrotechnics more safely than it had previously. [9] [16]

During Rammstein's US tour in June 1999, Lindemann and his bandmate Christian "Flake" Lorenz were arrested in Worcester, Massachusetts, for lewd conduct performed during their song "Bück dich" ("bend over"), which consisted of Lindemann using a liquid squirting dildo and simulating anal sex on Lorenz. [17] Both Lindemann and Lorenz were released the following day after bail was met. [17] This incident did not stop Lindemann from performing in the same manner for future shows outside the United States, particularly in Australia when they performed at the 2011 Big Day Out, [18] but the United States performances of this song were changed into a sadomasochistic theme that did not feature dildos, although this was not the case for all remaining US shows on the tour. For example, on 18 June 1999, "Bück dich" was performed in the same manner at the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon. In 1999, the band was blamed for the 1999 Columbine massacre, but they denied their music was a factor. [19] [20] In November 2002, Lindemann's poetry book Messer was published. It consists of 54 poems compiled by Gert Hof, author of the book Rammstein, who was also the band's pyrodesigner for the last seven years. [21] In July 2010, Lindemann, along with Flake, was interviewed by heavy metal anthropologist Sam Dunn for the VH1 Classic series Metal Evolution , on the topic of shock rock. [22]

Lindemann is not a stranger to injury, as he mentioned in Rammstein's early career that he'd gotten burned several times with unprofessionally rigged pyrotechnics. [15] At a performance in Sweden in 2005, he received a knee injury on stage when keyboardist Flake accidentally ran into him while riding a Segway PT. [23] This injury caused several tour dates in Asia to be cancelled. [23]

In 2005, five Rammstein albums received platinum awards and the band also received the "World Sales Awards" for over 10 million sold copies worldwide. [24]

During the filming of the band's music video for "Ich tu dir weh", Lindemann wanted a light put in his mouth to create a visually stunning effect. [25] Bandmate Paul Landers suggested that he use a flesh colored wire and run it along his cheek to shine a light into his mouth from the outside. [25] Lindemann refused, and instead opted to have a surgical incision in his left cheek, so that a light could be fed into his mouth directly, and largely out of sight. [25] [26]

There is a specific performance move of Lindemann's, dubbed "The Till Hammer". This move is where he bends his knees, beats his thigh with a fist in a hammering motion while turning his head from side to side. On occasion, Flake has been seen to parody the move onstage. Unlike most frontmen, Lindemann stated in an interview that he does not like being looked at while on stage, and would wear sunglasses to block out views of the audience. [27]

The main purpose of the band's signature pyrotechnics has also been stated to actually be a tool in taking the audience's attention away from Lindemann, whilst doubling as a spectacle for the audience. Lindemann often opts to just look directly at the mixing booth in the center of the crowd, except when directly interacting with an audience member. In 2011, Roadrunner Records listed Lindemann at number 50 of the 50 greatest metal frontmen of all time. [28] In 2013, Lindemann's second poetry book, In stillen Nächten was published. [29] He commented on the poetry, saying "The vast majority of my poems could have been written a few hundred years earlier." [29]

On his 52nd birthday (4 January 2015), it was announced that Lindemann would start a new project with Peter Tägtgren named Lindemann. [30] [31] [32] The band released their debut album Skills in Pills in June 2015. [33] On 22 November 2019, Lindemann released their second album, F&M .

In 2021, Lindemann performed a Soviet war song Lubimy Gorod (Russian: Любимый город, Beloved Town) in Russian – originally sung by Mark Bernes in 1939 – for the Russian movie V2. Escape from Hell (Devyatayev). [34] Till Lindemann was nominated for Best Narrative at the Berlin Music Video Awards 2020 with his music video ''Frau & Mann''. [35] In 2021, his music video ''Alle Tage ist kein Sonntag'' received a nomination for Most Bizarre. [36]


In 2018, Lindemann embarked on a book signing tour across Russia for his poetry book, Messer, originally released in German and then translated into Russian and re-released to the Russian market. Lindemann showed up to his book signing in Moscow with an unknown person in a gimp costume. The female gimp was led through the crowd by Lindemann before he sat down to sign autographs and talk to fans. [37] It is still unknown who was in the outfit, but suggestions are that of his girlfriend at the time.

Film and television

Two songs from the album Herzeleid were used in David Lynch's 1997 film, Lost Highway . [38] Lindemann has also played minor roles in some films, appearing with his bandmate Christoph Schneider as musicians in the 1999 film Pola X , [39] playing a character named Viktor in the children's comedy film Amundsen der Pinguin (2003), and also appearing as an animal rights activist in the 2004 film Vinzent. Lindemann and the rest of Rammstein also appeared in the 2002 movie xXx (Triple-X starring Vin Diesel) while performing "Feuer frei!"

As guest artist

Lindemann has featured alongside many other artists throughout his career, such as Feeling B, Apocalyptica, and his bandmate Richard Kruspe's solo project, Emigrate. In 2023, he appeared on Child of Sin by Kovacs.

Lindemann's vocal range is that of a dramatic baritone. [40] [41] [42] He has a tendency to press his voice with force from below [40] and use the alveolar trill, stating in an interview that he sings it out of instinct. [40] [43] [ failed verification ] However, this trait could be connected to his youth years in Mecklenburg. [44] In 2005, the New York Times commented on Lindemann's voice: "He commands a low, powerful bass rarely used in contemporary pop music, untrained but electrifying." [45]

Lindemann himself describes his lyrics as "love songs". [46] Some songs written by him have references to 19th century or earlier literature. For example, "Dalai Lama" from the album Reise, Reise is an adaption of Goethe's "Der Erlkönig". [47] He also used more of Goethe's poems, as "Rosenrot" contains elements from the poem "Heidenröslein", [47] while "Feuer und Wasser" has narrative elements from Friedrich Schiller's "Der Taucher". [48] Lindemann also used elements from Der Struwwelpeter by Heinrich Hoffmann on "Hilf mir" from the album Rosenrot . [49] "Mein Herz brennt" has lyrics taken from a narrative line in the East German children's show Das Sandmännchen . [50]

Lindemann has used contemporary literature for intertextual references; the song title "Non, je ne regrette rien" was used as a chorus for the song "Frühling in Paris", and the song lyrics of "Links 2-3-4" are based on the song "Einheitsfrontlied" by Bertolt Brecht. [51] According to Lindemann, the lyrics of the song state the band's political category, positioning themselves on the left. [52] He had also used another song composed by Brecht, titled "Mack the Knife", and the chorus was used for the song "Haifisch". [53]

The song "Cowboy" is a criticism of the hypermasculine character of Americans. Despite "Hollywood propaganda", Lindemann states that it was actually the cowboys who beat up the Native Americans. [54]

Personal life

Lindemann's daughter Nele was born in 1985, and he spent the first seven years of her life as a single father. [12] He has one grandson through Nele. [55] On 28 February 1991, his ex-wife and his Rammstein bandmate Richard Kruspe had a daughter together named Khira, who uses the Lindemann surname rather than Kruspe. Her mother had retained the name when she and Lindemann divorced, and she never married Kruspe. Lindemann's second daughter, Marie Louise, was born in 1993 to ex-wife Anja Köseling. [56] He dated actress and model Sophia Thomalla from April 2011 to November 2015.

Lindemann is an atheist. [57] [58] In a 2011 interview, he said that he still has strong connections to the traditions of East Germany, [27] and that he finds "de-traditionalisation" disturbing and believes there is "no longer any authenticity". [27] He has said that he "hates noise" and often spends time in a small village somewhere in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the name of which he has not disclosed. [55]

In 2014, Lindemann presented two sculptures and his original scripts of poems in his book In stillen Nächten (In Silent Nights) in a Dresden gallery. [59] He also wrote some lyrics in 2014 for German Schlager singer Roland Kaiser for his album Soul Tracks. [60]

Allegations of misconduct

In June 2023, a woman came forward with allegations that she was recruited by a Russian woman on social media and "groomed" for sex with Lindemann. She claimed her drink was spiked at a concert in Lithuania. She said she was ushered into a small room underneath the stage. "Till comes in and I immediately say: 'Till, if you're here for sex. I'm not doing that.'" She said Lindemann reacted angrily and left. She has emphasised on social media she wasn't sexually assaulted, said her memory of the evening was "blurry" and she recalls feeling nauseous and vomiting at a party after the concert. She has no memory of part of the evening and was left bruised after the concert. [61]

Subsequently, several other women made sexual misconduct allegations against Lindemann. [61] His band denies any wrongdoing, [62] though they stated that they were conducting an internal investigation. [61] Berlin public prosecution's office also stated that they had opened an investigation: "Preliminary proceedings have been initiated against Lindemann on allegations relating to sexual offences and the distribution of narcotics." They opened the investigation on their own initiative as well as "on the basis of several criminal complaints filed by third parties", referring to people not directly involved in the alleged incidents. [63]

In August, Der Spiegel published reports from an anonymous woman who claimed she was in a sexual relationship with Lindemann when she was 15. Although such relationships are legal in Germany, she stated that she "was way too young" to fully understand what was happening at the time. She also said that she shared her story because it caused her "long-lasting damage" and because she was angry that, in her view, the band had ignored allegations against Lindemann. [64]

On 29 August, the German prosecutors dropped the case, saying that the investigations did not provide any evidence and that they were unable to substantiate allegations as law enforcement agencies had not received direct testimony from the accusers. [65]
