Formed in 1994, Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte (NDH) metal band from Berlin. The six piece consists of Till Lindemann (lead vocalist), Richard Kruspe (guitar, backing vocals), Paul Landers (guitar, backing vocals), Oliver Riedel (bass guitar), Christoph Schneider (drums, electronic percussion), and Christian Lorenz (keyboards). They are one of the NDH genre's most successful bands, garnering recognition worldwide. Currently, the band announced on their official Facebook account that they'll be releasing a video collection featuring all of their music videos entitled "Videos 1995-2012" including their music video for their upcoming single 'Mein Herz Brennt.'

To achieve the same success Rammstein has had in the music industry on an international level, one must possess well-developed psychological attributes that can be exercised and trained by engaging in various challenging activities like playing partypoker de online, for instance. One of the leading betting and gaming websites, PartyPoker provides players with all kinds of exciting games such as Omaha Hi-Lo, Texas Hold'em, 7 Card Stud and more. Apart from the chance to win cash prizes, registered players also get the chance to interact with amateur and professional players, receive poker tips and lessons, and join offline tournaments such as World Series of Poker (WSOP).

Poker players and musicians must be able to focus in vital situations. A lot of new online poker players seem to make irrational decisions in their games such as going all-in pre-flop with a hand of 5-9 unsuited. This type of decision is due to the lack of understanding as well as losing focus. It is imperative as a poker player to ensure that you have a game plan which allows you to make quick and decisive decisions. According to Certified Sport Psychologists Dr. Jack Singer's article entitled 'Mental Skills for Musicians,' artists are exposed to negative comments from the media and anxiety on their big performance night which is called music performance anxiety (MPA). In his article, he says that MPA is characterized as 'the experience of persisting, distressful apprehension about and/or actual impairment of, performance skills in a public context, to a degree unwarranted, given the individual's musical aptitude, training and level of preparation.'

A study reported that those musicians who have less anxiety and stress show significantly higher qualities of performance. Those musicians who visualize their ideal performance seem to condition their subconscious minds to follow the suit. Therefore, the study concludes that the more knowledgeable the musicians are about how to reduce MPA and what contributes to it, are more likely to have fun and perform to their optimum level like Rammstein.
