I’m a big Rammstein fan; I have all three of their CDs, the “Live Aus Berlin” DVD, and I’ve also been known to buy soundtracks to get my hands on exclusive Rammstein tracks (I picked up the “Resident Evil” soundtrack just to get my hands on “Hallelujah.”) Of their three CDs, Herzeleid is by far the most angry and intense. It’s not going to appeal to all musical taste; if you want some of their more thought-provoking work, “Mutter” is your best bet. “Herzeleid” is designed to go straight for the throat.This music is designed to illicit a response; whenever I go for a run, I load up “Asche Zu Asche”, “Laichzeit” and “Du Reischt so Gut” into my MP3 player. It’s somewhat monotonous, but the beat is constant, and the band sounds angry enough to get anybody’s heart beating faster.Be warned, though, Rammstein’s lyrics aren’t going to appeal to a lot of people. “Laichzeit,” for example, means “Spawning Time.” I’ll let you use your imagination from there on out.Still, “Herzeleid” is among the best death metal on the market today. If you’re new to Rammstein, though, I suggest picking up their second album, “Sehnsucht,” first, which was their first album released in the US and has the hit “Du Hast” on it.
