About this album

Herzeleid is the debut album by German industrial metal band Rammstein. It was released on 29 September 1995.
The album’s original cover depicted the band members’ upper bodies without clothing. This caused critics to accuse the band of trying to sell themselves as “poster boys for the master race”.
The direct translation of “Herzeleid” is “heartache”; however, according to an interview on Talking Metal’s podcast in 2007, Richard Kruspe stated that it doesn’t translate to “Heartache”, but in the German language, it simply means “heartbreak”. The album is a culmination of the relationship troubles of all but one of the six band members, hence the title “Herzeleid”.

    Meloku666 that ain't okay, never sign a contract before you read it, especially when it's in german!

    This album is good that you will find yourself signing in German even when you don't have any clue of what are you trying to say!!

    @cgjames91 : I think that's exactly what they're up to! You're just way too ignorant and too straight to accept it! Were you molested when you're kid? Poor little kid..

    No, the original album cover is AMAZING and manly as fuck, absolutely in tune with the sound of the album. You're just jealous. They look nothing like a boy band on that cover, it is in fact on the US version of the album that they sorta looked like a boy band.

    Original artwork is gay. Nobody wants to see half-naked Germans that look like a boy band.
