Standing in the middle of a field on a rainy day singing along to your favourite band with 50,000 people by your side is a pretty standard occurrence during Great Britain’s festival season. And, thanks to the Download 2016 headliners announcement, we now know that it will be happening again next year when thousands will flock to Donington to be in full voice for ‘Run To The Hills’, ‘Iron Man’, and… ‘Du Reicht So Gut’? German industrial metal pioneers Rammstein top the bill once again and remain the only non-English singing band to do so – but what is the appeal of Rammstein compared to the other rock bands, and why do they break the mould? Whether it’s the crazy pyro-filled live show, the onstage antics, or the brutally infectious riffs, they’ve certainly won the hearts of millions worldwide who can just about mumble along to the verses of their biggest songs. Yet, there’s plenty of massive European bands that have been overlooked by the British audience that haven’t been able to break down the door quite like Rammstein have.
