Rammstein release box set trailer

Rammstein have released a trailer for XXI, their 21st anniversary vinyl box set.

The 14-disc pack contains all six studio albums, newly remastered, with original artwork and booklets. Four of the titles have never previously been available on vinyl. In addition there’s a double-LP of rarities, featuring a previously unreleased version of Los.

Record label Spinefarm say: “For Rammstein – and it’s the same lineup now as at the start – it’s always been a case of marching to their own beat, gleefully torching the industry rule-book, and everything else.

“They sing in German, they sidestep those visuals typical of the rock and metal world, and they present an incendiary, everything-hotter-than-everything-else live experience, the like of which hasn’t been seen beneath the popular music banner. Some call it ‘Rammsteinesque.’”

XXI is released on December 4 and it’s available for pre-order now. The band – who’ll headline next year’s Download festival alongside Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath – recently reconvened after a hiatus to commence work on their seventh album.

Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
