Lindemann is a German/Swedish industrial metal super-duo featuring lead vocalist Till Lindemann of Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein, along with multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren of Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy and industrial metal project PAIN. Tägtgren defines it as "a baby between Rammstein and PAIN – at least it's a mix of Rammstein vocals and PAIN music."[2]

History[edit]

Lindemann and Tägtgren met around the year 2000 in a rock pub in Stockholm, when members of Clawfinger introduced them to each other.[3] In 2013, when Rammstein was headlining a festival in Sweden, the German singer invited his Swedish bandmate to it. There, he told Tägtgren he would take two years off and wanted to write some music with him.[4][3][5] They originally planned to do only one or two songs, but Tägtgren felt they were "too good" and wanted to write more.[4]

The name of the band "was the only thing we could come up with".[3] All names considered by the band were already taken by other groups, so they eventually accepted a suggestion by somebody else and simply called it "Lindemann", though Tägtgren was initially unhappy with it.[3]

On May 28, 2015 the band released its debut single "Praise Abort". A studio album titled Skills in Pills was released on June 19, 2015. When asked about possible future live performances, Tägtgren said it will depend on fan response to the project.[4][3]

In November 2016, it was teased on Pains Facebook page, that a concert would be happening on the 9th of November. Lindemann joined Tägtgren on stage to sing ‘’Praise Abort.’’

In 2018, the duo made music for an adaptation of the play "Hansel und Gretel" with Till Lindemann also appearing in the play. [6] Also in September, Till and Peter announced a tour of Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan in support of Lindemanns book "Messer" [7] [8]
