SOME BANDS entertain, Rammstein destroy!

There are so few legends left to be written in the world of music. There are so few genuine rock monsters waiting to take up the mantle created by the likes of AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Well, look no more: enter the dragon, enter Rammstein!

Format:Audio CD
This debut album features some of the greatest raw industrial tracks the band have produced so far. The song 'Rammstein'is a manically heavy industrial track (one of my favourite tracks by the band to date!), and a fitting theme song for the band. The album contains less keyboard effects than the later albums, and is less technically perfect than 'mutter' but has chunkier guitar riffs, and still features the trademark interspersions of techno-style keyboard parts from Flake, although to a lesser extent. Till's vocals are generally more raw than they have now become, but this fits perfectly with the more industrial sound of the album. If you are a Rammstein fan, PLEASE buy this album, you will not regret it. It is a shame to say that many people who attend thier tours know only a couple of songs from 'Herzeleid', as 'Sehnzucht' and 'Mutter' are generally better known, so buy it now!!

5.0 out of 5 stars German Warfare 20 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
Will Amazon let me away with a four-word review??

Dear God, THE RIFFS!!

No? How about a 363 word review then?

Strictly speaking, this album doesn't need another glistening review; it has enough fans. I really ought to be off defending something that needs the help like the rubbish Revolver or the misunderstood Bob Hoskins-starring Super Mario Bros.

Hello? Still there?

The Rammsetin of Herzeleid is a much different beast to that of later albums, the self aware Sehnsucht or the chart ready days of Mutter onwards. This is a raw hungry and angry document of, as the title suggests, Heartache. Band members have been noted as saying Rammstein is about love, in all of its forms. If this is true, Herzeleid is about messy breakups, shattered splintered dreams and beds on fire.

Straight off the bat, the production is pitch-perfect., in no way glossy but ferocious as hell. The opening guitar on "Der Meister" sounds like a buzzsaw, while even the sombre "Seeman" contains heavy, heavy shredding upon closer inspection. The album is bookended with statements of intent; the chanting "Rammstein" of opener "Wollt Ihr Das Bett In Flammen Sehen" and the menacing self-titled closer. In between we get nine other belters, with only "Seeman" pausing for softer emotion and the bizarre "Das Alte Leid" for slow chugging behemothity. Yes, I invented that word. These 11 tracks contain between them somewhere around A BILLION awesome riffs. Honestly, this band make AC/DC and Metallica look like beginners. The playing is self assured and the songs impeccably arranged with not as much as one artistic mis-step, from the mini-solos of "Weißes Fleisch" to the crying baby samples on "Das Alte Leid".

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be prejudiced against Germans! 28 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
A lot of people hear Rammstein, or hear of them and automatically think it's german so it must be crap. you couldn't be more wrong. i bought this album just after buying mutter and was not disappointed. This album is not perhaps as well polished as mutter, but it has the same feel and is equally as good. Great guitars, cool keyboards and till's hard vocals all come together to make it all sound amazing.
My favourite tracks are Asche zu asche and herzeleid.
I had not heard any of the songs from this album before, and bought it after reading the reviews of it on this site. I dont regret it at all. If you have heard any rammstein songs before and like them, buy this album because you'll love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars It shouldn't work at all. It does. 15 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am a music fan in my late 30s, someone who gnashed his teeth all through the 1980s with the rise of crappy stadium rock and electro-pop, someone who watched in disbelief as U2 got taken seriously, someone who smiled with relief as grunge became briefly popular but who then felt vindicated with the later canonisation of people like Mike Watt, J. Mascis and Sonic Youth, someone who confronted his own aging process by finally getting himself tattooed with the Black Flag logo. I am between generations - not old enough to be old-school punk, not young enough to be indie. I also love jazz, blues, the Second Viennese School, Beethoven, Wagner, some prog rock, Zappa, the Beatles, the Bach family and Tudor polyphony, not to mention Fela, the Klezmatics, Yasmin Levy, Rabih Abou-Khalil, John Zorn, Fred Frith, Sonny Sharrock...well, anyway, I'm fairly eclectic.

It was only recently that I felt that I ought to listen to something recorded in the last few years. Being someone who speaks German as a second language and being a fan of loud guitars, it didn't take me long to buy a Rammstein CD on spec. My hopes were not very high. I am wary of any music that is prefixed by the word "industrial".

I was very surprised to find this album hugely effective and weirdly moving. Maybe I've just spent a lot of time reading Hölderlin's poetry and looking at Caspar David Friedrich's paintings, but Rammstein have done an incredible job of translating German romanticism into heavy metal. A song like "Das Alte Leid" needs no justification other than itself - it's one of the few metal songs that will make you cry. Elsewhere, Rammstein's eponymous anthem is a very hair-raising evocation of the horrific air show disaster that gave the band its name.

Rammstein stand out on their own. Yes they sing mainly in German but this in no way takes away from the songs. Always a strong beat with impassioned vocals. Read more
