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. Possible not their best album but certainly not their worst. Unfortunately their sound and style may only appeal to certain people but really worth a listen. You will definitely enjoy it and may become a fan.

FAUST were first (and don't forget that pathbreaking Krautrock band)....but Rammstein have inherited the enormity of their Teutonic industrial sound. This is music to accompany a Fritz Lang silent film. Mythic, monstrous. But also surprisingly accessible. Go back and watch David Lynch's LOST HIGHWAY and see what the track 'Rammstein' does for that film... This, of course, is Rammstein's debut album. After this things get BIGGER and BETTER.

Released in 1995, 'Herzeleid' is Rammstein's debut album, which mixes industrial metal with various electronic and dance influences, a heavy emphasis on shock value, sexual imagery and lyrical themes. The German vocals are an interesting touch, which makes it all the more surprising that they'd go on to have the success that they would.

Full of tasty guitar riffs, infectious keyboard melodies and groovy dance beats, 'Herzeleid' is a cohesive effort full of catchy songs that firmly establishes who this band are and where they're going, spearheading the Neue Deutsche Härte ("New German Hardness") movement that was sweeping across the nation.

Unfortunately, some of the tracks are a little repetitive and mundane. While tracks like 'Du Riechst So Gut', 'Heirate Mich', 'Laichzeit' and 'Wollt Ihr das Bett in Flammen Sehen' belong on any Rammstein compilation, others, such as 'Asche zu Asche', 'Seemann' and 'Rammstein' are all fairly passable.

I've struggled to write this review, with no witty one-liners or closing statements, this is just simply a good album. It's not the groups best release, but it's definitely worth picking up.

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". I'm honestly surprised more dance fans don't dig this album, such is the relentless, steady pounding pace.

Surprised, but not bothered, for this a metal fan's album, something - as a metal fan - to be truly proud of. This album is many things; the oppression of Till Lindeman's near-spoken vocals; Christopher Schneider's techno bea(s)ts; Paul, Ollie and Richard's world-class, neck-wrecking guitar riffs; Flake's OTT keyboards. It is also one thing; an absolute, must buy, timeless classic metal album. Please buy it. You must.
