Rammstein / XXI / 14LP vinyl box set


German industrialists Rammstein celebrate their 21st anniversary with their first-ever vinyl box set, containing all six of their studio double albums so far, plus a bonus ‘Rarities’ double LP…

While their fans patiently await a new album from these purveyors of Neue Deutsche Harte (New German Hardness) – Rammstein’s last studio release was back in 2009 – Universal Music release this comprehensive set in good time for Christmas.

It includes the following double LPs, all remastered by Svante Forsbäck, pressed on heavyweight 180g vinyl and housed in gatefold sleeves with original artwork:

  • • Herzeleid* (‘Heartbreak’, 1995)
  • • Sehnsucht* (‘Longing’, 1997)
  • • Mutter (‘Mother’, 2001)
  • • Reise, Reise* (“Travel, Travel’, 2004)
  • • Rosenrot* (‘Red-Rose’, 2005)
  • • Liebe ist für alle da (‘Love Is For Everyone’, 2009)*

*First release on vinyl


All bar their debut album reached number one in the German charts (Herzeleid fell short heartbreakingly short at number six), with Liebe ist für alle da achieving the greatest international success peaking at 16 and 13 in the UK and US charts respectively.

This new box set is bolstered by bonus double LP, Raritäten (‘Rarities’) including non-album songs taken from singles, fan editions etcetera, plus, most notably, a previously unreleased version of the song Los (‘Less’) in which Rammstein wittily describe the experience of being in Rammstein and criticisms of their work (sample lyrics: That should be forbidden / It’s witless / What they’re trying here / So tasteless / How they’re making music / It is hopeless / Senseless / Helpless /They are god… less. 

For those of you not familiar with Los, here’s a YouTube video… with no actual video to accompany the song. Well, less is more…

XXI is released on 4 December 2015.
