Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann and Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN) have formed a brand new project called Lindemann.
Pär Hulkoff, vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist for the Swedish industrial metal band Raubtier, posted a comment on the band’s Facebook page claiming to have heard some of the music:
Pekka T (Peter Tägtgren) and Till from Rammstein are unleashing their new powerful band! The small parts I heard really blew my mind! Like the page, and keep your eyes open. This will echo in eternity.
I salute you Peter, my bloodbrother!
This comes following Rammstein guitarist Richard Z Kruspe launching his Emigrate project, with a record out via Spinefarm Records. In one interview, Kruspe had spoken about a few live Rammstein DVDs in the works, and in another, he had hinted Lindemann’s formation, while keyboardist Christian “Flake” Lorenz working on a book. But he claims Rammstein is on a break and at some point in the future they may reform to work on new music.
