Last year, German metal juggernaut Rammstein released their first album in a decade. But the band had something special in the bag for 2020 as well – a 25th anniversary re-release of their 1995 debut, Herzeleid.

The limited, remastered edition of the band’s seminal first album offers the original track list on a single CD in a digipak with deluxe slipcase version, as well as a two LP iteration with a slipcase containing two 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl discs with blue splatter effect. Digitally, meanwhile, the album is available with HD sound for the first time ever.
