Happy Birthday to Oliver “Ollie” Riedel (born 11 April 1971) is a German musician, notable for being the bassist for the German Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein.

Musical career

In 1990, at the age of nineteen, Oliver began playing in a folk-fiddle/punk-rock band called The Inchtabokatables. In 1994, Riedel, Till Lindemann, Richard Z. Kruspe, and Christoph “Doom” Schneider entered and won the Berlin Senate Metro beat contest that allowed them to record a four-track demo professionally. Paul H. Landers and Christian “Flake” Lorenz would later join the band they named Rammstein.

The six released their first album, Herzeleid (Heartache) in September 1995. Their second album, Sehnsucht (Longing) was released in 1997, which would later become platinum. In April 2001, the album Mutter (Mother) was released and a European tour followed, ending on 13 July 2002.

In 2003, Rammstein started work on the fourth album, which was to prove a turning point in Rammstein’s sound and maturity. September 2004 saw the fruits of this work in the release of Reise, Reise (“Journey, Journey”).

In 2005, Rosenrot (Rose Red) was released.

Rammstein’s latest album Liebe ist für alle da (Love Is For Everyone) was released in October 2009.
