About this album

Reise, Reise (Low German language (literally): “Journey, Journey”, traditional wake-up call on ships, derived from engl. “to rise”) is Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein’s fourth studio album. It was released on 27 September 2004 in Germany and followed shortly by its release across Europe. It was released in North America on 16 November 2004. It was in the top ten in several European charts and a number one hit in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Iceland, Finland, Estonia and Mexico. As of February 2006, the album has shipped 1.5 million copies globally.

As used in “Reise, Reise aufstehen! Kommt hoch nach alter Seemannsart”, the album name is an old Low German sailor’s expression to waken other sailors, hence the translation of the title would be “Arise, Arise”, as seen in the song of the same name. Given Rammstein’s propensity to use puns, a double meaning could well be intended, as the standard High German translation of “Reise” is “journey” or “travel”.

The album art shows a damaged airplane cockpit voice recorder depicted on the front and back covers. Its caption (“Flugrekorder, nicht öffnen”) means “Flight Recorder, Do Not Open”. The inner part of the Digipak edition case shows a picture of the six members in suits wielding suitcases and weapons leaving from a crashed airplane.

The cover art is an allusion to the song “Dalai Lama”, which deals with an airplane accident. It is also suggestive of the overarching ‘travelling’ theme of the album.
