Christan “Flake” Lorenz is keyboardist from Rammstein, he began as a member of the punk band Feeling B.

Who likes Rammstein humorous elements on stage must adhere to Christian “Flake” Lorenz. Flake played that role first during Feeling B era ( “We always wolln artig!”). The band existed from 1983 until 2000, when their singer died.

Flake and the guitarist Paul Landers moved in 1994 to the band Rammstein but Feeling B still continued. They remained a fun-punk band with a strange tendency to medieval folk music.
