Sounds | Rammstein, Zeit
Dubbel fantastisch nieuws vanuit het Rammstein front. Vandaag hebben ze de eerste single en titeltrack van hun nieuwe album Zeit gelost met bijhorende videoclip. Het album komt eraan op 29 april, dus we moeten nog even geduld uitoefenen. Met het nieuwe nummer zet de metalband vergankelijkheid en sterfelijkheid in contrast met het gelukkige gevoel van perfecte momenten in het leven. Op het eerste gehoor een vrij traag nummer door de piano intro, maar eens de gitaren erdoor komen doet het ons denken aan Mutter en Ohne Dich.

Lees Germany's biggest rock export, Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein burst onto the international radar in the late '90s with their breakthrough sophomore set, 1997's Sehnsucht, and its accompanying hit single "Du Hast." With their aggressive blend of heavy metal riffs, dramatic orchestration, and synth-forward electronic production, the band quickly evolved from a sonic novelty into a reliably hard-hitting machine that never shied away from controversy. Following the chart-topping success of 2001's Mutter, Rammstein became a fixture at the top of the German charts in a decades-long career that secured a devoted international fan base, multiple platinum-certified albums, and no less than a dozen number one singles. Despite language barriers, they even maintained a consistent chart presence in the U.K. and U.S., reaching a Top 20 peak in 2009 with sixth effort Liebe Ist Für Alle Da. Though absent from the studio for almost a decade, they kept fans sated with steady touring between albums, bringing their incendiary live performances across the globe into the late 2010s. In 2019, a decade after their previous release, the band unveiled a new era with the single "Deutschland" and its controversial music video that focused on Germany's past and possible future. The song quickly shot to number one in Germany, Hungary, and Switzerland. After the release of second single "Radio," Rammstein issued their seventh studio effort, Untitled, which was co-produced by Olsen Involtini (Emigrate). The set soared to the top spot in over a dozen markets, topping charts across Europe and rising to number nine on the Billboard 200, their highest showing to date. In the wake of the album's success, the band charted an international stadium tour for 2020, which was postponed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
