Early Life

Paul Landers, the second oldest member of Rammstein, was born on December 9, 1964 in
Brest-Litovsk, Belarus. According to Landers, he lived in Moscow for a short time during his childhood. His father was a language teacher, and his mother was a teacher at a special school. It is rumoured that Landers did not get along well with his father and left home during his teenage years.

Feeling B

In 1983, when Landers was nineteen, the band Feeling B was formed by Landers, Aljoscha Rompe, and Christian Flake Lorenz in Berlin. Feeling B was one of the first punk bands in
Eastern Germany. The band started out firmly grounded in the underground punk scene. The band’s popularity grew over time and they drew large crowds to their concerts.

Landers played in Feeling B and other bands, such as First Arsch and Die Firma, for about ten years.


In 1994, Oliver Riedel, Till Lindemann, Richard Kruspe-Bernstein, and Christoph “Doom” Schneider entered and won the Berlin Senate Metro beat contest that allowed them to professionally record a four track demo. Paul Landers and Christian ‘Flake’ Lorenz would later join the band they named Rammstein.

Herzeleid, Rammstein’s first album, was released in September 1995. In August 1997, Sehnsucht was released, and in April 2001, Mutter was released.

Rammstein finished the last date of the European Mutter tour on July 13, 2002. It has been
reported that at this time Rammstein were seriously discussing whether to continue or not. It was decided that they should all take time off and then consider whether to continue or not. Paul was missing for a couple of dates during the tour; the reason is unknown.

In 2003, Rammstein started working on fourth album, which proved to be a turning point in Rammstein’s sound and maturity. The result was Reise, Reise. The album was released in September 2004 and the Reise, Reise tour began in November. It was followed by hugely Successful sold out European tour of ten countries, lasting four months.

Rammstein are scheduled to release a new album (Rosenrot), containing new songs and songs remaining from the recording of Reise Reise, in late 2005 or early 2006.

Personal Life

In 1984 ,at the age of twenty, Paul married Nikki Landers. He took her surname and began to use his middle name. They had a son, Emil, whose date of birth is unknown but was probably around 1985.


Former jobs include working as a boilermaker and a telecommunications mechanic.

Landers speaks Russian. He is falsely rumored to have been a gymnast as a child. He has
been married once and is currently divorced. Paul Landers has two children, a boy and a girl. The daughter was born around 2000/2001. Paul has said that he likes Pantera, Metallica,

  • Meaghan Boyle

    This is gonna drive me crazy, but does anyone know if his ears are stretched? They look like they might be stretched a little (somewhere between a 6g and 2g), but I really don’t know!!

  • Jelly

    mmm… sexy beast! 😉 😀 :*

  • andrea

    There are a whole lot of discrepancies here. Paul was not born in Belarus, he was born in Berlin. Emil is not Nikki Landers’ son, and he was born in 1990 not 1985.

  • Topher

    So was he born in Germany or Belarus?? You say Germany at the top in the profile, but then in Early Life you say he was born in Belarus…???

  • Ghazal

    Paul! I love you very much! you are very nice! 🙂 <3

  • dogmandaveuk

    This guy is a freakin legend!
    Love the fact that his smile has it’s own facebook fanpage

  • Paul seems like a sweet guy with a bit of a bad boy. 🙂 nothing wrong with that. I recently saw him in Inglewood live and he and the band blew us away!
    If you want to see his beautiful smile watch the live recording of the show on Jimmy Kimmel, as the camera zoomed towards him he gave a charming smile. Paul’s smile is really something that can touch many woman’s heart. Love you, Paul!
    It was also sweet that he played with the opening band at the show in LA. I hope they come back soon.

    He mentions traveling with his wife in an interview from December 2009 so this page should probably be updated. And yes, he is certainly brave with the hair, but it kinda works for him.
